The second race of this season.
Last race weekend at Lausitzring I gained a lot of experience....but no points.
This was my second race in the Porsche Carrera Cup and, in retrospect, I was too hungry for good results, that I forget the overall process.
During the Qualifying I couldn't get things together, although my feeling was good. But in racing there are so many factors that can determine the outcome and I have to realise that I am a racing driver and not a magician.
Then race 1 started. After a good battle in the first two rounds, things happened to quickly. I was overtaken by my teammate and during that moment, I hit him in the back and I spun him around. Luckily for him he just lost a couple of places, but I was punished for this with a drive through penalty. I finished P14 in race 1.
This is also part of racing. I spent the rest of that day working on the overall process. I tried to accept everything and to ease my mind. "Shit happens. Tomorrow, there is another race and new possibilities."
So, after a good night sleep, I was full of energy and in a good mood. The sun was shining and this day was going to be a good day. The race was about to start. I lined up at P11. The lights went green and we were off! I had an AMAZING start, were I overtook about six other drivers. With three cars aligned side by side, we hit the first corner. Before I knew it, someone hit me and we spun off the track. Race over.
Of course I had a hard time to accept this immediately, but I soon realised that this was what this weekend was all about: accepting that all things can be and that all things are allowed to be there. That there is only one thing important: I am a racing driver to the bone and I just have to trust my inner core. I have to listen to my inner voice to enforce the law of attraction.
So, with this experience my focus is already on the next race. On the 9th of June we will race on the Red Bull Ring is Austria. Bulls have horns, so I will put on my imaginary horns and go for it!
