ArcticRacing should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Very interesting race ! There were some small preparation messes such as Bovy who didn't have any prepared tires and had to start with old tires and finish almost on the rims, or Kimiläinen who drove with a wobbly car (front wing flaps support gone on one side), but the main thing was there: it was fun, and by staying away from the incidents, the fastest ones climbed the rankings.

Nevertheless, I am worried about Koyama. She was injured in the hand with the accident on Saturday, and on Sunday she was at the bottom of the pack with the worst times on the grid. She who is used to overtaking more than the others, I hope she has nothing serious to her hand for having been so uncompetitive compared to what we could have expected.

We had another great Visser/Chadwick battle, even if it was shortened on lap 12 when the Dutchwoman was sent to the back of the pack.

The surprise of the day was Gilkes, she always had enough speed to stay ahead (5th best time of the day & 7th best theoretical time with her best 3 sectors) while on Saturday she lost 2 seconds on lap on Kimiläinen. Was she able to preserve good tires for this opportunity to shine? Has she been overly cautious in the peloton since her accident in the first race? Mystery!
Surprise also for Bovy: despite less good tyres, she was able to fight for victory for a long time and set the 2nd best lap (and the 5th best theoretical time with her best 3 sectors).

On the other hand, in a very predictable way Hawkins and Cook (already very fast on Saturday) signed the 3rd and 1st best laps in the race. Starting 7th and 8th, they easily climbed the rankings to fight for victory.
Speaking of fast drivers, with a thumbs-up of the safety cars, some of them shone with a superb progression from their starting position: Powell (15 places gained), Chadwick (+12) and Kimiläinen (+11)

Ms Gilkes' pace when the tyre wasn't at optimal temperature was certainly notable.

She was able to pull a decent gap on the field from the start, and both restarts. But I think in doing that, it hurt the tyres at the end of the race. By the final lap, she was working hard to defend, and only just held on for the win. But a well-deserved win at that.

Congrats to both Chadwick and Powell, for the title and race win respectively. But also well done for Visser for putting up a fight till the end
