4 pages and al I learned from this forum...DAN M didn't get 4th at the San Felipe 250
And should start somewhere after 52nd place.
SF250 was another race they put slower buggies mixed with faster spec trucks. Granted they were Class 1 but still not safe.
The slow Class 1 buggies are lucky to have not been crashed with all the spec trucks having to get around them. It was sketch for sure. Our truck came very close to taking out a class 1 and ending both of our days in a bad way. Those two buggies got passed by 12 other spec trucks before we got to them. Each one of those passes was a opportunity for disaster.
Any time you have different speed vehicles starting mixed in it’s also higher risk. The goal should be to start equal vehicles together and not mix.
Take a look from 16:45 to 20:45 and at the end how close that was of hitting the C1 coming back on the main line. The speed difference between us and both C1 seems at least 30mph. I think one of them had issues not sure why the other one was so slow.
Yeah, that would have been your fault if you hit them. Not the org’s. But maybe that’s not your point?
I'd love to add to that but...might anger the Minister of Truth...Just an update For ya B.Hagle Liberals like everyone to follow the rules and take away personal freedoms. I think you got it backwards there hot rod.
Not attacking you @MTPyle , just a question, so hold on to your feelings...Actually at SF250 all Class 1's where put in front of all spec trucks. So you could not qualify around them.
So the top quialifiyer TT Spec was behind the slowest TT's and the slowest C1.
Originally they said they would start based on qualifying time regardless of class (within TT, TTspec, and C1) That made sense but came with its own risk. We were actually pretty high up the list and was starting behind LR and Had Myers TT behind us. For me that was still a risk but better than having super slow Class 1 and super slow TT in the mix.
I have never said you can take all risk away. But you can limit some risk at the start.
