I've gotta say, it says something about the complacency of the chassis setup. I counted about a dozen mini-spins that would've pitched a lot of other track cars into an uncontrollable spin. Kudos to the Porsche team. Wonder if that's an TCS/SCS system.

"MVP Tracktime". They group cars based on horsepower.

I should of held my line. But welcome to the world of understeering WRX. First race of the day. Car in front missed a gear. I snuck down the inside, saw the WRX and went as wide as I could. Broke the tie rod and steering arm.

If the Subie would have hit his apex he wouldn't have wound up in the Miata's fender- nor would he have had understeer throughout the entire turn. Of course the Miata's line through the turn was far worse, putting him exactly where he needed to be for the Subie to nail him. If the Miata ran the line the Subie would've either had to follow him through the turn, or driven around the outside (which wasn't happening.) If you lead somebody into a turn, you don't give them the right of way.

^^ Not Steve's video... but if it were, he'd be the one driving the vette - with a hand resting on the A-pillar, cruising back to his cooler of Dos Equis waiting for him on the paddock

That being said - I'd be pulling in the pits to wipe the **** off my ***.

Reminds me of the video from VIR when the GT3 scares the hell out of him on the back straight -

Here's a colossal asshat in a vette standing on the brakes in a 100mph corner when he sees a yellow flag.

First rule of flags is check your ******* mirrors for people behind you who might not see the flag yet.

Do we know this Miata owner from this forum?
