I tend to agree. That move was sorry and obviously extremely dangerous. I don't know who either racer is, so looking at it objectively it seems the Jeep made a deliberate move to the left once the UTV was about to pass. The UTV was holding his line and staying well to the left the whole time. The Jeep just didn't want to get passed. I hope the UTV drivers are OK and the Jeep was DQ'd. That's not racing. That's trying to kill people.kinda looked intentional
Fair enough, Dave. I admit my reaction was extreme. My bad. You can’t judge intent from a video. For that matter you can’t judge intent even after sitting down the drivers involved in an incident, unless they are honest with you. So, it’s just speculation on all of our parts. But I have a little bit of a hard time thinking it was just a coincidence when the Jeep driver moved over sharply to the left at the precise moment the UTV was going to execute a pass. It was clear as day the UTV was faster so they wanted by. And moving over to block another vehicle from passing so you don’t eat their dust is not uncommon. It just sucks because they’re not even in the same class.Dont know how you can possibly see intent from that video. Unfortunate racing accident...yes...trying to kill someone? Sorry, just cant make that jump to conclusion.
Agreed. Bottom line is the only people this really matters to are the people in the Jeep and the people in the UTV.Man, I’m glad I don’t race much anymore. Any little incident and everybody starts whining and pointing fingers at you. One eyed Peter backed off and I respect that. I’ve bumped plenty of people similar to that, although none of them rolled it. Sirens are hard to hear, many cars have no rear view due to radiators, rear cameras are hard to see. It’s not easy. Push to pass rarely works because you get phantom alerts to pull over, and nobody comes. It ain’t an easy all-safe sport. If you’re going to desert race, man up and be prepared to take some chances. poop happens out there.
