Blocking?

Just glancing at some video and this caught my eye, not the bouncing off the rev limiter, but the 2 moves that look like an attempted block and maybe the one move before 10a. I am by no means an expert but "one move is racing and two moves is blocking" or so I've heard. What do you guys think?

I assume you are talking about the dark car witht he yellow stripes. That does not look like blocking. A few of items, 1. another cars went by him 2. he looks like he moved over because he was surprised by the fast silver car going by him, 3. He's probably coming across to get near the apex on the bend in the straight.

At that worst he may not be aware of your position but that is not blocking. Next time just follow the car the pushed by him on left and late brake going into the corner.

I don't think it's blocking. I think they were trying to let the car behind around them, maybe, but the overtaking car went so fast that by the time he moved over it looked like blocking. And, he did leave about a car width for you at the apex. You could have stuck it in there. But you probably did the wise thing and gave him room. You never know what someone is going to do.

Blocking is so pointless in crapcan endurance racing anyways. It's dangerous and can cause the blocking car to make mistakes because they are too busy looking in their mirrors. Let's all agree to not intentionally block.

My thoughts if I were the driver in the camera car would be 1) "Wow, this dude cut that guy off a little...I wonder if he just didn't realize how fast the guy was coming up on him..."

2) "Damn I gotta get a little closer up on him before he sets up for that next turn or.....poop! He better not do that again or he's getting turned" LOL!

My guess too.

fair enough, safer to hold your line and let the overtaking car make the move though or point him by so he knows what your thinking. I mean really the problem is all the fast cars on the track (joking of course), we just have to find 60 more HP to hang on straights.

There is no point to blocking for sure, this driver didn't mention anything about this, I'm just the bored crew watching video on the ride home. Overall it was a great weekend!

The Silver Car was So Much Faster on the Straits than everyone else, By the time you looked up and saw him coming and reacted, he was passing you how ever he wanted !!! Coming into 10A, I was in a Pack of 4 cars and out braking them all and carrying alot of speed Deep. The Silver 300Z Split me and a car to the inside of me and still had time to STOP, Turn , and Haull donkey into 10B.... It was Confidence crushing by all means... LOL....

Doesn't look like blocking...just looked like he was caught off gaurd and wanted to protect his line. I'm not sure why everyone seemed to move to track right exiting T7. The real line has you staying left until just before black flag station.

Blocking came from the SHO in many places...or maybe he just decided to go offline, turn in early, and generally be in the way in many places.

Nice pass by the E30. ;)

Not blocking, the green car just wasnt expecting the silver car to literaly drive circles around him, the green car was just trying to get out of his waybut the silver car passed him on the left instead of waiting for him to move.

The silver car shouldnt have to wait for the green car to move. Thats not racing. The green car was in the wrong place for one thing but thats fine, stay there and let the faster car go around you. True its polite to move over, but doing it late like that will only get people hurt.
