But you did pass that Vette too quickly. You have to take into account his feelings! You wouldn't want him to feel depressed or unloved would you???
That's actually the Regional director in that car...you can bet I am very careful passing him.

There is nothing about you or your car that says "sheep." 🐑 I get a real kick out of your caged unibody car sticking it to the tube frame guys. Keep being YOU, and I'll keep living vicariously through you.
So, you're saying I'm not gonna blend....

I think you should have clutched it on the way by him and hit the rev limiter a few times prior to entering the next turn. He was likely going to stop for a drink or smoke or whatever they do in every turn.

Naw, he's a good guy and T1 is a different class.
We're just sharing the track with a bunch of other competitors, Most of which are nice people.

Oh, and BTW....we don't have a rev limiter. We die like real men.
That yellow light tells me we are at 8200 which is a self imposed redline and that's good enough for me.
BUT, if I need more....I need it to be on tap so, no rev limiter.
