    Ok, not a good action video, but funny as heck. A couple weeks ago I was doing a track event at Texas Motor Speedway in the Challenge car. Last time I was with this group there were only about 3 of us in the advanced group and we were allowed to pass each other anywhere. I wrongly assumed the same rules applied this day with 15 cars and most were novices. :D I was passing in the straights, I was passing in the braking zones, and my favorite was passing in the corners as the novices weren't even within a couple car widths of the apex. I was eating 4-6 cars each lap, including 911 tt's, Z06's, and the usual import stuff.

    The video is of me getting "talked to" after black flagged. Ends with a fun run up through 4th gear.

    While I'm waiting for the 23.6 MBs to load, I'm writing this. heh

    Changed cache setting to 50 MB from 20 MB while I was at it.

    And I've got DSL! hahaha

    Wow! Man, if you folks haven't seen this yet, Rob throws a mean roundhouse punch! Quick, too! Don't blink, or you'll miss it.

    Might just be your settings or software, you should be able to hear it clear.

    Jennie was in the passenger seat (first time), that was her making excuses for me too. :)

    I'll post some passing videos later.

    Rob, I was thrown out of the kart races one year, driving the last six laps of twenty without brakes. They showed the black to me along with the white Last Lap at pit entry.

    I argued that by the time my feeble brain could process the signal, I was past the entry!

    Didn't work, but they decided they liked watching me drive the course so much they let it go as a STRONGLY worded warning!

    Then the FCA can tell you about me knocking the BP car out of the lead.
    They were only the Festiival Sponsor! It took a while for that one to die down.

    I guess I don't have any problems being too slow or timid. Tuesday at our monthly go karting I got black flagged because he said I was going "too fast". What?!? After 15 laps I asked him had he seen me loose control, spin, or hit anything. My laps were all consistently fast within a couple tenths of each other, he just hadn't seen someone drive their karts that fast yet. :) Now if he knew one reason I was going so fast was I never let off the throttle and just left foot trail braked in a couple turns, he would of had some ammunition. :D

    Great video Rob - Would love to see some more!

    Two great quotes :

    "You got the baddest car out here."

    "That guy in that Porsche just got the living daylights scared out of him."

    LMAO

    WOW, you were "eating" all those "novices"? guess you could have eaten an Enzo too if one of them woudld have been driving it. you must be very proud.

    I thought the advanced guys were supposed to have the brains in the group and not set bad examples for the novices.
