That doesn't make sense, that's saying that if someone tries to pass me I can hit them if they are not on the race line?? That's in pdx days. Not racing??

So, did you really read the GCRTA 6.11.1 (A, B, C & specifically "D"), the overtaken driver...is not to impede... the overtaking car.

I repeat... I did not impede him. He had all kinds of room.

the video shows different jim. it is a great angle to see exactly what happened. the annoucers said it was inexcusable. they had the oppurtunity to watch the replay right there. that is coming from an unbiased party.

Look at about 5:50 for the first hit, which ruined my race with all the cars in front of me. Then look at about 10:50 and tell me I moved over on him.

P.S. I drove the line when Philip and John came up on me and they both managed the pass without hitting me.

tom would have also but you turned into him. it doesn't look good. every person i have shown the video to, racers and non racers agree, you turned into tom. sometimes we just have to admit we are wrong.

watch the edge of the track, you move over to the right and hit him. your own video shows it. i'll post some here in a few that shows the same thing.
