At least in the Skip Barber cars, the racing here was very, very messy. Tons of divebombs and incidents in T2 and T4, as well as pretty dangerous 2- and 3-wide situations going into T4-5. Hopefully in the Ferraris it will be cleaner and better racing. Will be interesting to see.

It is going to be tight in some places, especially leading into the Bomb Hole. This is going to be one of those tracks where patience will be needed. Pit strategy may be huge here too!

I am sorry b_glover93 when we came around Riches (turn 1) I couldn't see that you spun and when the cars in front of me moved you were right there. Feeling pretty gutted.

I know how hard you guys work during the week to prepare for races and to get taken out L1/T1 thru no fault of your own is beyond frustrating. Ive been on the receiving end of that a few times but have never caused a major wreck like that my entire time on iR. Again, apologies to all.

No worries, racing incidents happen!

But that was just stupid weird. Still dont really understand what happened. Had been clean thru there over entire week of practice except maybe running wide a few times. Never even got close to losing the back end. Did not feel it thru the wheel or anything.

I watched the feed and the replay. You didn't touch the grass or anything, your line was good. Maybe a cold tire slide? Invisible Netcode gremlin...:LOL:

It is the really frustrating ones where you have no explanation for what happened.

Looked to me like cold tire slide. Just one of those things unfortunately. Next time I'm yeeting myself into the cow pasture in that section if shinanigans happen haha

But in all honesty, as a league, feel free to call out a wreck/major check up over the VC, especially on Lap 1. The spin was innocent enough and where Barron ended up on track, was not the worst scenario in all honesty. The issue was the back half of the field had no idea anything was happening and didn't have vision until it was too late.

Hi. I was one of the cars that got collected in this. Looking at the replay, I don't think there was any possibility at all to avoid contact with the car in front, nor do I think the the two cars behind me had any way to avoid me. I really don't think you should beat yourself up about this. It looks like you did the right thing in locking the brakes so it was all as predictable as possible. We were also nose-to-tail for a bunch of laps at Road Atlanta, so I know how clean and steady you are on track. It just happens sometimes.

But yeah, frustrating for all of us. At least I got plenty of practice honoring blue flags... lol
