Piecing it all together, it looks like the lapped car didn't see Rob take the apex. He moved down and they got a bit tangled. When Rob cleared him, he must have been leaning on Rob. His car took a quick right, followed by a recovery left that put his right rear into my path.
I understand that the lapped driver had a bad day in a couple of ways, and I'm sorry that I added fuel to the fire. He left on Sunday; I would have liked to talk to him about the incident. I never like to see folks not resolve differences at the track.
The amazing part of this to me is that I only had to replace a lower control arm and a front tire to get the car back to work. TJ at RP Performance squared it up for me and on Sunday I turned a personal best of 29 flat. These cars are incredible

Yeah, the shifter was having trouble jumping from the 1-2 rail to 3-4 rail! I went into 1st gear in the carousel 3 times! That 3rd time I knew it was time to give up before I broke something. I think everything is fine other than the shifter, mayber the little nylon button is bad or broken or missing? Any suggestions? I drove it from Baker to the paddock and it shifted into all gears and sounded fine it just didnt like the aggresive race shifting! LOL

Back in the horse and buggy days of SM, we had that same thing happen at MotorSport Ranch (Cresson). Except it was a Miata and a SRX7. The miata was driven by Scott Means and he went wheel to wheel (much like Glen's car in the video) with the right rear of the SRX7. Scott had a "little more" damage than Glen. Actually, Scott's car was pretty much totaled as it launched and flipped landing on its roof in the middle of the track. Scared the wee wee out of me as I stopped to help Scott out of the car.
