After punishing you guys for two stints I worked pit out for the last 2 hours  Also saw the guy with the radar gun was checking speeds off and on all day. As for any rule infraction talk to your local pit marshall and they will see that it's addressed..

Got the video uploaded. It looks like shitty luck/timing with cold tires.
Quick right hander at the kink, followed by a brake application likely locked that right rear causing the rotation..

 

 

I have the snapshot of this at entrance to T10.

Anyone know or have a link to where we can see any of the professional photographers' photos for sale from Road Atlanta 2017 ChumpCar race?  I saw a lot of cameras out and we'd like to get some pics...

My team was the official photographer for the event.  See Floer-photography.smugmug.com.  Got to Chump Car racing for the event and then car number.  We covered the race and Friday practice.  I have packages and can do more than just prints. Thanks

Wait a minute - was that red car backwards going into T10A twice?

 

This photo isn't from the lap that Twoth hit the car on, because Twoth would be in the picture if it was (and the brown Acura wouldn't be there)

This looks like it was after the hit. Watch the video, and after Twoth pulls off the track all the cars in the picture drive by.

There was definitely a guy there with a radar gun.  He was mostly loitering across from our pit.

 

Mustache was exactly what you would expect from a retired sheriff also... 

And just what us it that you expect?

I think the sheriff should have been handing out 5 min penalties for those speeding more than 15 over on pit lane. 50 mph on pit lane and skidding 10-20 ft into your pit stall is a bit ridiculous for 14 hr long Chumpcar races. The big boy races get much worse...

I caught 42 teams speeding by more than 5mph on pit road at RA. As a volunteer, I did as I was told and spoke with every team that I caught. The fastest that I caught was 45 MPH with the average being 35. I am certainly not saying that I got them all. I am human and took bathroom breaks, lunch and dinner. I couldn't be out there on both ends of pit road. 

 

If you want higher penalties then I suggest you go through the proper channels and petition for such. If you want more cars caught then volunteer yourself and you can cover pit road speeders.

Fun Fact: All the hair in _Tombstone_ is 100% authentic.

Also: If I ever do a theme, I'm thinking something Old West-ish, as I can carry off that 'stache as well. :) (Volvo 1800 with the US front bumpers? :) )

Did anyone use the Hankook R-S4 at this race and willing to share their thoughts on it?

Tire wasn't available yet for this race.  They started showing up at people's doors around the last week of February.
