We stayed in top 3 until we pitted on lap 28, came out in 4th. Got back to 2nd before pitting for CPS on lap 42 and put new front left tyre on. Rejoined 6th. Got to fifth before pitting on 60 for splash of fuel.
We had water temp warnings throughout the race putting it in limp mode. No faults stored in car, thinking probably a sensor more than the radiators but we were there to learn and will now investigate.
We'll strip components and check wear before heading out for testing again.

I'll put a link up with some on board vision in the coming days.

The biggest surprise was setting the lap record, link below:
Great job! I watched the first 15 minutes of the race. I enjoyed watching you working over the EVOs. When you lost the lead while reseting on the roll, the commentators thought you mis-shifted. lol
