r12 13_s Race 13 .. unlucky number 13 .. But for Veijalainen it was just the opposite when he was racing the FZR that day.. No disconnections on his part and he was fast  on the new Westhill international Track now WE2..  The new design of the track makes it a lot more technical and fun to drive.  It toke me a lot of laps to understand (a bit ) how to take the corners. The chicane is a lot longer now but way more difficult to..  to chanllenge to let the rear tyres do what the front did.. is very difficult..  but here it is .. Race number 13.


The lack of yellow line on the new version of this track makes the review of qualifications lighter than usual.

2:29:30 Hanziboy will not go very far on his first hotlap as he bites the curb on the first lefthander and plants his car in the gravel pit. He manages to escape after a long minute of digging.
7:54:90 MrHamSandwich spins out of control on his second hotlap and goes straight back into pits.
9:59:55 a very lucky Ernest passes the line for his second hotlap just 2 seconds before the end of the session.

6:6:44 LFS.be-Xtian gets a drive-thru penalty for excessive speed while entering pits. (damn tacho showed 56 so I let the brakes go and it jumped back to 86)
7:51:49 Knuckles loses control and spins in front of Xtian and Harabla. Xtian cannot avoid collision. race incident.
12:35:68 After an intense battle with Harabla, Hanziboy goes wide in turn one and bounce off the barriers.
