    It looks like he was overdriving his tires at the start. He likely will overcook them pretty quickly.

    Oh the frustration... I take it the Mustang isn't even in your class.
    Good job.

    Wow, that was fun to watch but very frustrating for you I'm sure. Is the Mustang a PTC car? Why can't people properly label their cars? Is it really that hard?

    It might be splitting hairs but as far as I can see he has part of both left tires on the pavement. He's pretty much 4 off but he might have enough tire on to be legal. Maybe a car further back has a better view but I'm guessing it's too late to protest at this point.

    ^ the best part about it, is that the moment one of our cars is missing a number, i bet NASA would throw the book at us.

    Yeah, looked like he kept a little rubber on the road and the pole sitter is the one that pushed the mustang further off track probably because he had no idea the mustang was there. Either way, it sucks when someone jumps the start like that when they are 2 seconds off the pace and then hold everyone else up. Next time go to the 4th down and 7 playbook: hard block or long punt. Good luck!

    I also want to mention that sim track quality varies wildly... Mid Ohio, Laguna are obviously very good, as well as most famous tracks. all tracks on iRacing is very good, as they are digitized down to millimeter..but track like WSIR isn't very good......

    And IIRC, this should also be a new PTC track record

    all PTB cars are also slower than Emilio !!!
    not so good for Emilio, as PTB cars (and with better power to weight ratio) will be starting in front of him.....

    can Emilio double dip in the same race

    Most likely because running the event properly requires a 5 digit number of dollars.
