I am getting ready to move, so my wheel is packed and put away. Unfortunately I'll miss this race, hope to be settled into my new place by this weekend. Have a great race everyone!

Well this race could have gone much better. Just as I was getting it in my head to start slow and easy, I was inevitably pressured into the next guy in front. I will take the blame for first lap incidents, but the chatter did not help at all. I believe I speak for others when I say I was dealing with distraction for the first half. Even though, you guys will easily see that I caused maybe half the wrecks in this race, I'm going to post my feed just for profiling here in just a sec. Enjoy it, cause I honestly didn't feel too guilty about it myself. 👻

REF: The video above - At 53;44 I was giving Aid (the faster driver) the room to pass (and you were behind us seeing the sequence) and then you just came up and bumped me off the track. Yeah, that's racing, and you said you were sorry, but aren't we supposed to give positions back after direct bumps that could have been avoided? Correct me if I'm wrong, please.
  And aren't we all supposed to announce re-entry from the pits?

Yes if someone bump you and gain the position, he must give it back to you. Feel free to send that video sequence to the stewards if you think it worth it.

Just making a point to keep to the Clean and Fair format.

Yep, I certainly made contact into 3. A very dangerous corner & difficult to compromise. I was also bumped from behind, which lead to a split second decision; If I wait, he too would have to stay behind. The speed Shneeb was carrying was lower than anticipated in a rather tight space. Waiting anywhere around that area would endanger more people.
Inspite of this, I know I could have found another space to park it, but after losing 3rd place and going to the back a couple times, it was pretty hard to bare patience at that point.
