Outstanding!! We get so much in car footage this is a great treat! And to think this is a completely blind corner for the drivers!

Thanks for sharing [thumbsup]

What the hell was that guy thinking of pulling out in front of me at the 3:52 minute? He almost creamed us both.

Nice video Bob, and good heads up Al - that could have been bad.

Here is my video of that race, including my perspective of that spin in turn 2.

I watched all 3 races from this same area...I was really surprised at how often drivers came back on track in a terrible position...right at the exit of a totally blind corner...all to seemingly try and save a position or 2. But of course doing so they put themselves and others at risk. Even with yellow flags waving and cars slowing down still not a lot of time to react. And it was veterans as well as rookies who made this mistake...luckily just a lot of close calls!
