JCrist Posted May 31, 2021 Report Share Posted May 31, 2021 Our first weekend back in a while found us at Watkins Glen this weekend, we enjoyed ourselves and we found that many guys spent the COVID quarantine time wisely! Every race has a multitude of car and driver capabilities. Our car used to be a top 5 car, now a top 10, and has always required us to keep the wheels rolling well throughout the lap as it’s a 2830# machine with 165hp. There are cars out there that easily drive past us on the straights and we try to compete in the braking zones. Many of you have faced the same. IF YOU ARE A FASTER STRAIGHTLINE CAR AND MOVE OVER JUST BEFORE A BRAKE ZONE YOU ARE PUTTING US ALL AT RISK. You may brake at the 300 and the other car may brake at the 250’ or 290’. Or 150’. I was able to spare one of the Tuttle cars this weekend in T1 because I anticipated such a move but a couple of you got the bumper. If you think you have the right to pull the chute 5’ in front of a car just because you out accelerated them or any other reason- you’re wrong. Stay in your more inside lane/track position and compete the turn on be on your way. Many folks will lay down for you to peacock and swerve in front of them, not everyone will. It’s not good sportsmanship nor safe or competitive practice. Thank you for attending my Ted talk. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
