Was that a left hand corner?

If so, I'm wondering why you didn't compromise your line slightly and go inside instead of trying to go around, especially when he starts to move?

Actually I see it better now but if it had been me, at 1:16 I would be hard on the brakes and nipped in on the inside, and give him the WANKER hand gesture. No way would I risk trying to go around someone so foolish to move that far off their line, especially as I didn't seem them give any gesture or even look around.

Sorry to see that for you.

I was in the braking zone coming off the straight. The rear wheel was dancing and couldn't brake any harder than I was like every other lap coming off the straight. You're not supposed to come out of hot pit and swing all the way across the track right into the racing line when you're not up to speed and I never in a million years imagined he was going to keep coming across right into my line until about .00001 second before I hit him. It's called a severe violation of the blend line. You're supposed to hug the left side of the track all the way through turn one and get up to speed before merging into traffic after turn 1.

Nope, you?re wrong TDH.. Looking at your video in slow mo i could have easily been on the gas a full 2 seconds longer, backed the rear into the corner while flipping the guy off and dragging elbow with the same hand.

..and then woke up from my wet dream!
