Apology to #374 HWD Acura - VIR 24


Recommended Posts

I didn't want this to get lost in the clutter of the VIR thread.


While reviewing some raw video from the race it is clear that one of my drivers didn't leave enough racing room for your car in T5-T6 and it resulted in contact in the 5th or 6th hour. If I had known this happened I would have personally visited your pit to apologize. I hope that this incident was not the reason that your car retired from the race. Please PM me if it caused significant damage - it would be the front left side.


If anyone else had an issue with my car please let me know. I'd like to think that my drivers tell me everything that happens, but apparently not.

revvhappy, I think one of our rental drivers was in at this time and he did come in after the incident which was only 2 or 3 laps into his first stint.  I don't recall any heavy damage other than some paint.  Luckily or unluckily, this is not what took us out of the race.  We had an over heating issue that sidelined us.  Thanks for letting me know though.  This just confirms another reason I love chumpcar.

Team 374, I was the driver that was driving at the time of this incident.  My sincerest apologies.  I meant to go find your team and apologize myself at the race, but I got lost in the excitement of the race and this did not happen.  The incident and the lack of personal apology until now was by no means was done on purpose.  I miscalculated how much room I had on the exit of the pass and contact was made.  I am very grateful that it did not effect your race.


All of the drivers on the Hong Norrth team believe in clean fair racing where the driver initiating a pass takes the brunt of responsibility of any issues that may occur during a pass.


The next time we are at the track together, I would like to extend this apology in person.
