I think your right, my bet is for a race incident. Next time I will be more aggressive with the "douchecanoe" and shut the door on him sooner. Thats a new term for me.

we just re learned that at Road America, once you pass someone, slam the damn door on them, especially Porsches, their radiators are in the front aprons under the headlights.. game on.

Looks like I have been deemed the culprit, for not staying in the "third lane". Waiting for my sentencing.... I suspect they will give me penalty in the next qually. At least that will keep my away from all the drama of the first lap.

Here's your defence, you were the lead car going into the corner, you gave room to the guy on the inside. It's not up to the lead vehicle to alter its course in order to avoid an incident from some douchecanoe driving a Porch that decides to dive bomb the corner.
That's on him

I tried that one! They still think I should have left some more room for the dive bomber. The part that makes me laugh was when I was told that.... You have to anticipate that the GT4 cars can brake much better then you...... :idontknow:. Odd since that's were I pass them most of the time.
Well not going to worry about it much. If the Boss is farther back in the grid, will still be able to catch up in time.

On the bright side, my car is up and running with $47 in parts... the GT4 is already over $2000 and counting.

Wonder what the outcome would have been if you were Chilean? Crazy situation and hopefully they will be reasonable even though this simple racing incident has become a " Blame Game."
I understand that down here, if they rely on gentleman's rules, things would go side ways in no time. None of the competition is making a big scene out of it so not too worried. In the end its good that they know that the gringo will shove back sometimes!

Lol, when I worked in misc P cup classes in PWC and IMSA, drivers all talked about " the Porsche family" what BS, just because you spend $700K ( at the time) for the car, you get nothing, you have to spend about twice that before anyone at Porsche will talk to you, spend more and they might remember your name.
It's a lot like a video game only you spend obscene amounts of money to get to the next level in the "family".
