2nd in Formula 2

I got a jackrabbit start off the line, and even drove through the experts on the start to enter the first corner mid-pack with the experts. I left 3 of the experts behind and tried hard to hold with the front of the pack, but they started drifting away at a 1/2 second per corner.

I wish I could say that I never saw any of the novice riders, but it just wasn't true. On the 3rd lap Tryg Westby (a National rider) swept past me and ran away for the win. He was doing high 2:11s, almost 7 seconds a lap faster than me - I had no chance. But he'll only have 2 races in WERA West (the National riders move around from region to region) so he won't disturb my points lead.
