    Default More incidents per lap than Spec Miata...

    Or more retarded drivers, or both, I donīt know.
    My car on cam. Second race is where things get interesting.



    What would your racing series consider as appropiate penalty for the green/white car?


    PD: Cars are EP91 Toyota Starlets, very similar to "USDM" Tercel.

    Probably a fine and/or suspension with chasing another car off track, trying to chase you off track, and an unsafe reentry.

    The guy in the white car added to the problem when he P.I.T.-maneuvered the red car midcorner. Chileņos locos!

    The only thing gheyer than racing a Miata is racing a car called a "Starlet" . . . (it's not "Sarlet" as OP says)
    The deposed former Sheriff of trackHQ . . .

    2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
    1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    I don't know if that is the scariest racing series I've seen, or the most brilliant!

    This is what the SCCA needs the B-Spec class to be.

    Exactly, but the SCCA thinks we want to build a $30,000 track car that does 1:45 at Willow Springs.

    The SCCA thinks we want to spend 15 minutes on the grid in 100* heat so the workers who run the organization can take a break whenever they feel like it. I don't think they have a clue what a race car should cost to do a certain lap time at WSIR or any other track.

    There's only one problem racing in a class where the cars are considered disposable.

    Enjoyed. Looks like very fun racing with a bit (ok, more than a bit) of bumper car action thrown in.

    I think attacking the guy after the race would have been appropriate, considering the way he was attacking you in the race. I don't drive in any w2w but that seems really flagrant.
