Looks like fun!
The Vette is yours? Great car!
Were the rules -n no passing unless let by by the other driver using a blinker?

Now for the scolding!

1.Screw the decibel limit!
2. Lean on the other cars and force them to use the blinker earlier. It is a multi-class situation. Slower cars should know they will have to yield asap. After all, it is a RACE track.

I don't even have to watch it. They are all compass-arc corners. No natural multi-apex corners like a mountain road. Nothing hand drawn. All computer designed and they let the restrictions of the computer dictate their choices. I know I am making a lot of assumptions, but that is the way they look to me and they drive the same way.
When I fly into/out of Los Angeles you can look down onto the hills and mountains (upwards of 9,000 feet/2,800 meters) surrounding the area and you can see all of the fire roads cut into the hills for fire trucks and maintenance vehicles to get up into the hills. Those dirt roads also double a mountain bike fun. Anyway there are no compass arc corners, just great flowing multi-apex corners of an endlessly different variety. Why can't they draw inspiration from the worlds great mountain roads for corner shapes and corner combinations? Just seems obvious. I think they have their heads to far up the computers ass to be able to think for themselves.

He was my favorite driver when I was a child.

When one of the planes from his airline crashed because a thrust reverser deployed on only one engine in flight causing the plane to spiral into a jungle in Aisa killing all aboard, Nikki personally went to the crash site which was very difficult to get to. He personally called every family. He personally ran the scenario on flight simulators to see if it could have been avoided. He concluded it was not possible to save the plane. I've never seen another airline CEO do that.
