Well I'm late starting this...I started it Thursday, now I should explain that i'm not attempting to drive a 24 hour stint all in one sitting...I don't have that kind of time...so my plan was to just chip away at the race as much as I could as time allowed... So the first stint was 2 Hours. Went very well...especially since I really do not dig Spa at all...still I was getting more comfortable with it and though I started dead last (36th) I had worked my way up thru the grid pretty well in that first 20 laps. Usually, if you start out slowly you get ahead faster in the latter laps, BUT there is also that 1st lap premium on getting thru slow bunched up traffic. My practice had consisted o following another car to see what line they would be using and then finding my best passing zones...usually I'm a late braker and that is sufficient to get me thru some first lap congested traffic. Now I've stated before that my normal tactic is to let things settle and I hang back the first lap or two...I was attacking Spa very differently... My thinking was that if I could get thru the back of the back, you will see a quick break-away happening for the lead 10 or 15 cars. I want ted to get into the gap between the lead pack and rest of the field so I could settle in to run some time out without a lot of over using my tires. This plan was working well as the back of the pack was a tight furball. I didn't want any part of that so i fought my way thru as quickly as i could over the first four laps...then found the gap at P22 and settled in. There was a 7 second gap that I felt very comfortable riding around in. I just kept it under 7 seconds and ticked off laps, watching the gap to the car behind me. I want to see it, but not see it gaining aggressively. This was my plan and it was working well for the first 1 1/2 hours, then I began to catch the 21st car and three others that were battling very intensely, slowing them considerably. Two Ferrari and a BMW. The Ferrari were beating on the 19th place Beemer pretty hard. But they weren't getting by...I hung back and watched the battle for a couple laps or so, then decided to see if i could get thru. Turn 1 was my target passing zone on this first Ferrari. Just a matter of a hard late brake and get thru the hard right hander (La Source). It worked. But the Ferrari wasn't gonna let me go without a fight. The BMW had opened up a gap on the 2nd Ferrari in front of me, my plan was to take it in Turn 7-8-9 (Les Combes) it had proven a good spot to get around cars earlier. It worked and I was side by side with BMW as we got to Bruxelles (Turn 10-11) I was on the outside and made it work by not giving any room for the guy to accelerate off Turn 11. After dusting those three off I put down my fastest lap and proceeded to plan for my first stop. I had no idea where my pit stall was, which proved a major folly on my part. I eventually found it and lost 7 spots before deciding to save the race and take a break.
