The incident occurred after mm21 in a canyon. The damage to the rear of my car showes multiple hits. If I can email someone the clip possibly they can post the jpeg. Its a text book case of a trophy thug move,no horn no warning,just 3 hits sending us into a canyon wall and driving away.

What lap did this occur on? And what car were you driving?
With this information I can try to track down some of our go pro footage to see how this looks from our end.

It would be at mm 21.5 tpo of the canyon at the end of the rollers ...after that 500 ft from the y in the course it was maybe your 3rd lap

I can tell you it wasn’t lap 3 or 4 for us. My dad was driving and we definitely didn’t nerf anyone. My brother and his codriver did laps 1,2 and 5,6.

Just out of curiosity are we supposed to stop and exchange info during race these days? You say multiple hits? Were the first couple warnings and you were just ignoring them? Maybe the title is mis-leading a bit. I know Gatlan personally and this doesn't sound like him. He is a good dude and kinda sounds like you maybe dragging him through dirt a little. When multiple hits happen either way makes you interested in the whole story. As mentioned he is in baja prerunning and highly doubt RDC is on his mind.

I totally get being emotional about something like this and lashing out online. Not that I would ever do that. Hehe

I dont know what happened but it gets crazy out there. seconds seem like minutes and its really hard to be behind a slower vehicle. I bet they felt like they gave you time to move. I know I have been frustrated with a truck on race day then when I watch the video back I realize I was not as close as I thought or it was not as long as I thought. Race mode perception is a crazy thing.

Its racing and you have to be ready to move over fast, especially on a lap race.

I am currently away from my pc and will work at posting the video....I have been racing off road over 30 years, this is nothing new.like I i say the video explains it all . I did see his name on a blue tt with corresponding pit signs. That is how I came to this conclusion. I am now trying to send his brother a forward email for review.
I posted this before going to work and. Spent numerous attempts to load including shortening the file size . Currently I. Cant remove the mp4 off the jpeg so if I could email the clip to someone who could correctly post it that would help.if not I will continue to try and post it when I get home from work

In the prosecutors case- the section in question was like 1-2 mile of no passing zone. A lot of rocks, until you get onto the main road to the Wall.

in the defenses case- there is just something dirty about “allegedly” hitting slower classes. I’ve done it once and I got berated at the Baja 1000 finishline.

I got passed 3 times this race by faster guys. I have no Good mirrors but can hear well, nobody used their horns. Clearly they were either strategically not using it, or knew they could get me clean and or use another line.
Just wanted to ramble a bit...
