Round ten of the ILR1 championship on PS4 seen us visit the Silverstone circuit for the British  GP.

In a wet qualifying it was reigning champion louisw03 who took pole position for Red Bull with current championship leader VSR_Blizzzard in second and VRTCliffy starting in third.

With a free tire choice due to the wet qualifying strategy was a lot more open to the drivers with pole sitter louisw03 and VSR_Blizzzard both opting for the ice blue hard tires with VRT Cliffy opting for the slightly less durable medium tire. Further down there was a mix of tire selections with  many opting for the fastest of the tires the softs.

As the race got underway it was VSR_Blizzzard in the McLAren who took the lead with a great run down into T1 with VRT_Cliffy challenging louisw03 for second. Meanwhile further down the order  there was contact with a Sauber running off wide into turn two and then further contact out of turn three involving the Suaber of Jume_x among others. da_ReTreX became the first retirement on the opening lap.

VRT Cliffy ended up ahead of louisw03 making use of those faster tires while Gonanen_87 was putting pressure on louisw03 for P3 in the opening laps. The two then collided on lap three at the Brooklands corner with lousiw03 spinning and subsequently collecting the Renault of TTG_Po resulting in both retiring from the race.

Meanwhile VRT Cliffy caught onto the back of VSR_Blizzzard before making the move on lap four into the Brooklands corner.

VSR_Blizzzard attempted to re-overtake into Copse but ended up touching the grass through the corner. VSR_Francis became the latest driver to retire. TTG_Lambo was the one to benefit from the two at the front battling allowing him to close in on the soft compound tire.

The race settled down at this stage with everyone managing tires in the first stint. CSR_Leon and Gonanen_87 had a good battle though with the Toro Rosso of CSR_Leon making a nice move on the outside of Stowe corner for P4.

The battle between the Toro Rosso and the Ferrari allowed the Haas of Matt32575 and the Renault of ccbrain catch up and enter the battle. Meanwhile at the front VSR_Blizzzard managed to catch right up onto the back of the Mercedes of VRTCliffy with the McLaren driver attempting a move into Stowe corner and both cars running side by side all the way through Vale and Club with VSR_Blizzzard making the overtake and regaining the lead.

A lap later VRTCliffy got close to VSR_Blizzzard in sector two but not quite close enough to attempt to overtake. The battle continued for a number of laps with the two going side by side and trying to gain an advantage with VRTCliffy getting painstakingly close to gaining the lead.

The battle came to a head on lap eleven when on the run out of Copse corner VRTCliffy was the victim of a glitch in the game which sent him off into the gravel and hitting the barrier having ran closely behind VSR Blizzzard. This brought out the virtual safety car resulting in some opting to pit such as Gonanen_87 while the leaders stayed out.

The rain started to fall shortly afterwards although it was only light. CSR_Leon had to hold off the charge of ccbrain in the Renault while Matt32575 was not far behind the two either. Matt32575 watched on as the Toro Rosso and the Renault in front scraped wheels in front, while TTG_Lambo pitted from second at the end of lap fifteen.

CCBrain made the move on CSR_Leon and was followed by Matt32575 while Likkle_Blocks also caught up onto the back of this incredible battle who also then passed the Toro Rosso. The battle continued with CCBrain holding off the charge of Matt32575. The rain continued to fall with many extending their stints waiting on the crossover period to switch straight to intermediate’s. Matt32575 pit on lap seventeen for inters while TTG_Lambo and CSR_Leon had already made the switch. Many others followed suit and pitted for the intermediate although VSR_Blizzzard stayed out a bit longer on the hard tires.

The conditions made it tricky for the drivers at this point with Matt32575 running wide into the gravel and CSR_Leon spinning on the entry of turn three.  When VSR_Blizzzard finally pit he ended up collecting a 5 sec penalty for speeding on the entry to the pit lane. How costly this would prove later was yet to be seen. After everyone had pitted it was CCBrain who emerged in second with Likkle_blocks in third at this stage. VSR_Blizzzard long stint cost him some time on those behind. In the closing laps of the race VSR_Blizzzard attempted to build a gap to try to get more than five seconds clear of those behind but then added a further penalty for track limits violations meaning he had to find an eight-second gap to CCBrain who was in second. Likkle_blocks was running close behind CCBrain while Nowek3712 was attempting to pass Kallek_rist for P4.

In the end it was CCBrain who took the victory after VSR_Blizzzard’s penalties who subsequently picked up second and Likkle_blocks ended up in third having made up a lot of postions through the race.
