    Yanked motor out. Did a little bit of an autopsy...

    First, that was me in the corvette. I personally saw the flag come in, but saw you flying in the rear view and those drivers going slow, so I waited for a more opportune time to pass. And you're hitting your steering wheel like a child throwing a temper tantrum... but please continue to think of yourself as gods gift to the race track... Youre going to get someone hurt with that attitude.

    Couple of things: @16:50, Dude, calm down, they missed the yellow flag being taken back in. Pass them on the straights. Your driver is definitely seeing red there. Deep breath man. @17:18, same thing, deep breath man, throwing your hand out the window won’t do a thing. . . @39:15. . .That was an interesting line for the yellow car hahaha. . .

    You guys had the red BMW? You guys put a herculean effort putting it together. Sorry it turned out that way :/

    And who was the car that spun it out coming onto the front stretch early in the race and was that close to swallowing the wall?. . . Were you able to get out of your car w/o pulling the seat with you?

    Oh, and the awesome signage in the middle of the night while we were motorboating around VIR

    Umm, I'm going to head scratch on this one. This is how I managed to make contact last year. I was over taking a car on the front stretch, my bumper was even with their door, and they came over on me. . . Everyone then piled on me stating it was my fault, it was being overly aggressive. . .

    Not the guy on our team. Just keep in mind, were EC, were not in the competition for anything. Us doing things that risk wadding up our car does no good. We weren't talking trash until your team started blaming it entirely on us; I was venting a little because it was aggravating and my car is pretty cooked. Your driver story didn't make sense. He passed us... we were 'dangerously' slow... we came out of no where and hit him... He doesn't remember... Im not going to put which official on the spot but even the staff was familiar with that driver and stated he runs aggressively. I raced you guys on that section of the track. Our cars are even. There's no way you could have passed us, then us somehow in 200ft us catch back up to you and side swipe you. It's just not possible. I honestly think it happened like the car that got smacked that was going into the esses last year. (Forget the teams) saw a slower car, and rather than wait, took the aggressive move and forced it when it wouldn't fit. And after all of this, congrats on the podium finish. I don't think you guys purposely took us out. I think you took an aggressive move and we paid a higher price because of it. Yes it's aggravating but it's also racing. We don't want to get hit or hit a car just as much as you. Well have cameras on our car next year to cover ourselves. Also, I'll bring some beer, come over and talk to us.

    For serious. .. Let's talk about the additional ventilation our engine block acquired ~3:30 in the morn w/ absolutely no warning. Good oil pressure, good temp, no noise, BOOM.

    I think it's unreasonable to expect the driver to see that flag. However, I came up to a bunch of these situations where I had the run up speed and a little room to stick my nose in there. I personally, would (and did in my situations) back off and just pass at a more opportune time.

    May be I'm wrong, but the first one, trying to push Same thought.
  13. VIR 24 LifeLine Classic

    Agreed. I think the staff did everything they could. I think the teams that were really being aggressive were in the far minority. I already know our team is hated on the track by a lot and were doing everything we can to fix that. It would be one thing if the team said "yeah, I pushed it when I shouldnt have." I get it, its racing, stuff happens. Its frstrating because we already feel guilty for showing up and the collective groaning. But then we do everything we can to keep it clean, talking to the staff for extra instruction, etc, and our guy gets punted and then you blame us like we have no right being on the track because we may slow you down in the corners; thats beyond aggravating. Anyway, foosa. We won a sweet fire supression system, we at least got a couple hours in. Well get the car figured out and go from here.
  14. VIR 24 LifeLine Classic

    Gotcha. So they can blame us even when none of their story lines up, even though all of us did absolutely everything we could to keep it clean, etc. We did everything we could this year to stay away from people, getting out of peoples way, etc. The fact that the entire grid was black flagged for aggressive driving when we werent even on the track doesn't suggest a thing. Nope. Its the corvettes fault. I can and have taken criticism and readily admit we werent the best last year and I beat it into everyones head to keep it clean this year. That said, Im not going to let us be the whipping boy by some team who even the officials noted for their aggressive driving.

    It was that drivers FIRST lap on their first stint, we didn’t even have a lap time for him. Our last driver was running low 2:40’s/high 2:30’s, NOT this driver. Your driver complained ours was driving too slow even though that driver had only been on the track for FOUR CORNERS. Your driver stated he had already passed and yet somehow we have damage from your car on the back of ours. Our driver is a naval aviator so I’ll believe him what happened in situational awareness better than your driver who shrugged and said “I don’t really know what happened” after he claimed all the other stuff. Our driver was on the line, your driver shoved your car in a space that wasn’t open and then you have the gall to come on here and blame it on us. You guys were running aggressive. I experienced it on the track and let you guys go even though I would have had every technical right to let you wad both our cars up. Oh, and then you claimed to have video when Mike was talking to you but hours later you said the camera quit working before the contact. Edit: And I was trying to not name names in my previous replies due to trying to shrug it off but you called yourself out.
