Mike Louli, whose 'life partner' (is that the PC term these days?) is Wheels' own Nika Rolczewski (pronounced just the way it's spelled) did a fine job in keeping his nose (and sides, and back) clean to finish fifth in the Ferrari Challenge race at Montreal, following a race-long battle with Darren Crystal which included a last-lap pass by Crystal at the hairpin, with Louli re-gaining the position at the Chicane of Doom. Louli hit the curb on the apex, but gathered it up to take the chequer.
Enzo Potolicchio won (as he did yesterday), Harry Cheung was second, (ditto) and Mike Zoi was third.
Mark McKenzie, whose dash (almost) to the podium was the highlight of yesterday, started the race but disappeared early on - don't know what happened to him.
I had just mentioned to the other inhabitants of the GreenField Ethanol box how these boys were behaving themselves (compared to previous events here when high-priced carbon fibre was flying all over the island) when one car rear-ended another heading into the hairpin - not once, but twice. And when he got out of his car in the pits he gesticulated as if he thought it was the other guy's fault! ("How fast was he going when he backed into you?")
Next up - the Big Prize! (How come English is the only language that doesn't use 'itself' to describe this event??)
