    Like I said, he didn't know it was cool down cause he wasn't paying attention to the corner workers, so that is why he was driving aggressively.

    And that's why in SCCA driver's school they care a lot more about your seeing every corner worker than they do about how fast you go!

    I always get bored at every drivers meeting when they are going over the flags. But I guess here, it's not knowing what the flag means that is important. It's just learning that you have to keep looking at them.

    Good thing he wasnt in a race seat with a full harness and a Hans.

    Roofs arent very forgiving when there is nowhere for your head to go.

    +1...they were pretty intense about it when I was at the Super School a few years ago. Especially love the part where they randomly through out fake red flags and people keep driving along as if nothing had happened.

    Yeah and he never drove with SpeedTrial USA, so he never heard their mantra about "if you suddenly think you gained 200 HP, it's probably the cool down lap"
