I'm jonesing for some educational race footage. Post up some video of a race that you think you drove pretty well, irregardless of finishing position. Maybe it shows a good pass or two, a slide that you saved, a start that you nailed, or a good battle with the cars around you.

My best driving always seems to happen when I have camera problems, or rather, camera operator problems (like leaving lens cover on, or having it soomed in all th way).
This is my 2nd best ever start (my best ever start was at TWS 2.9 where I passed something like 15 cars...with the camera zoomed in all the way and nothing but sky in the video). Note that the good performance is very short lived and you also get to see what happens when you're left hung-out to dry on the outside.
I watched the MX5 race... you did know about the ditch at the kink just past the start stand, right? Never a smart place for a pass, otherwise it looks like you had a good run... just happened to be in the wrong spot at the right time!

I'll post this one here as an example of respectful driving, side-by-side at the limit. I'm going to post the full set of race vids in it's own thread but I singled this one out for just those reasons.
Yes, there was a 'little' contact on the 2nd to last corner but it sounds much worse than it was as the mic is strapped to that side of the car, didnt really hear it in the car.
No dents or scrapes on either car. Had it not been the final lap or I'd been raicng a vintage Ferrari I don't think I would have made the move.
