what is your word for:


and how do you apply it to a race?
in watching the Daytona 24hr race, a grid filled with 5 different classes of cars/drivers, a immense amount of patience had to be applied when coming upon slower traffic.
i would like to see us put this approach into full time use as we race (often close) with sometime questionable internet LAG.  Good?

It mostly comes into play when passing  other cars, you can group that into two categories. First is the one where you are catching the car in front by seconds a lap, there you got plenty of performance surplus that you don't have to dive down the inside at the first corner you can. Give it a corner or three to get a good run on the guy in front who hopefully has noticed you by now, once you get just slightly alongside at those closing speeds you are virtually by anyway.
Second case is the opposite one, here you slowly claw yourself to the back of the car in front. Here you have plenty of time to sit and watch him, where are his strengths and weaknesses, to set up a pass. Instead of going full attack mode which mostly ends up in bend cars or off track moments take your time apply steady pressure and look what the other driver is doing and plan ahead.

PS: If it is the last lap you may want to consider replacing patients with a crowbar though, just be aware of the consequences that entails.
