Agreed ! Top few in class 10 and 1600 had a good battle as well. those times for the 16's was pretty impressive as this course seemed tailored to them.MORE is the bomb! Spectating in lucerne is absolutely epic. The class 5 battle was the best racing of the day. Go class 5! Congrats on the young gun Cade Garcia taking the class 5 win this weekend.
When you're in race mode, you're in race mode!That's me in the red 10 car. This is off the start in the pit/speed zone. I admit that I was running about 55 but that car in front of me started behind me and hopped out of the marked race groove to pass. Lesson learned- ignore speed zone off start!
While I obviously don’t condone cheating or envy Cody’s job, I don’t like when things are said on a virtual drivers meeting and not on the racer brief. Yes, things need to be interpreted per each unique situation but I don’t see in the racer rules the 2 most interpreted rules- legal race line parameters or what you stated about specifics of the rules in speed zones. All I see is the speed limit, the flags, and “no aggressive passing”.There were plenty of folks who must not have listened to the prerace radio meeting that specifcally said '...you must stay in that race line down pit road and not use other lines to pass. If a car is not travelling 50mph, then you can go around and get right back in the race lane.' We had a white, yellow, and blue 5 car actually running the BLM/MORE access road go by us in teh pit off the start. We wondered if there would be any enforcement?
There were more than several cars that were not just passing and getting back in the race line down pit road. They were just using a smoother line, period. Some were obvious to us as they had been prerunning those lines the day before over and pver and pver and we knew it would happen. There were also some cars, especially in class 10, that simply didn't obey the 50 mph rule throgh the pits the first time by. One was WAY over thge 50mph mark. Just wondered if there were any penalties passed out for this stuff?I can tell you it was very difficult to run 50 MPH down that marked two track. The car just didn’t like it. 55 or 60 and the car would settle right down. (We tried this testing of course lol )My interpretation of the drivers meeting is the same as Bro , you can step out to pass if a car couldn’t maintain 50 mph. We had this happen and I can tell you it was very tough at 50 to move in & out of that deep groved Whooped out two track. We did our best to get back on the marked line as soon as we could but it did take a bit. Racing does funny things to the brain, thinking back if I just stayed behind him probably would have lost maybe 20 seconds.
