Neat coverage but silly that he's showing a lap timer. Way to get banned from any future events.

That shits me, as timing = racing from an insurance point of view, so it puts the Burrows organisers at risk to publise it - it' mentioned in EVERY briefing that timing gear throws their coverage out the window.

+1

There was even a guy there standing in front of the pits with a stopwatch in plain sight.  He looked at me like I had 2 heads when I suggested he should maybe be a pit more discreet with it.

We all know that improvement can come from full understanding max speed, apex speed, etc for every corner...  but just standing out there with a stopwatch learning nothing but a raw lap time is just asking for trouble.   :doh:

It sounds to me like these guys who DON'T understand the rules should be taken behind the Pits and have the rules spelt out to them until them DO understand them!!!!!    :irked:

This photo from that other forum tells a story...

The Elise on the left was holding us all up, but most of us sorted ourselves out on the straight like we're supposed to...  except the Porsche who drove under me coming out of turn 1.  Scary shit at that speed when you're not expecting it (based on the "overtake only by consent" rules dicated on the day).   :irked:

Geebus, same thing happened to me with a Grey M3. I turned into T1 paying attention to my steering input aiming for the cone, looking to the next one and ZOOM M3 comes out of no where passes on the inside. I had to stop turning in to let him through and all that but hmmm  :melting:

Yeh, there were a lot of people not watching their mirrors in the intermediate group yesterday. I think Luke needs to be a bit more emphatic
about it in the briefing.

Now that you mention it...  he didn't mention one of his usual lines during the briefing yesterday.  It goes something like "Even if someone isn't watching their mirrors, that's no excuse to squeeze past.  If someone is holding you up, do a drive through of pit lane, and by the time you're out the exit, that person will be long gone."

So it's a special one off? or a custon aftermarket build?

Custom aftermarket build.  Body from USA specialists...  one of only 2 made or something...  don't remember the rest as it was a few months ago that I first spoke to the owner about it.
