Re: 5:40 for the big carve up

Wow... too bad about the incidental contact ~5:36 ..... the camera car seemed to exhibit some traits of oversteer from that point afterward.. The orange car seemed to have an abundance of power but handling issues that I suspect were related to having too much wing angle...
Nice video!

Re: 5:40 for the big carve up

The track is Taupo NZ, ( Since renamed in honour of Bruce McLaren ), orange car is a forum member. If this was a Tier 1 event the camera car driver could likely have found himself in front of stewards as diving up the inside on corner entry is frowned upon ( I am not suggesting I agree with the rule ), just one of many regs that have been introduced in recent times with $$$ penalties attached to help rebuild Motorsport Coffers after several years of what appears to be ill considered governership.
