LostPony is a member here too. Weren't some of you guys there with him?
"The car that blew appeared to be stock except a opened up front grill for cooling. My guess is that he missed a shift going into turn 10, most seem to want to drop to 3rd gear there, and perhaps he got a fist full of first. I stay in 4th through 10, and most Boss drivers I show this to seem to agree after they try it. "

Very sad! Sounds like a missed shift. Only a newbie at Summit Point would downshift for turn 10. It's a 4th gear turn!
