Try to remember, Godzilla, everyone has different braking points (hence why some people are faster than others).
Just because you don't brake there, doesn't mean no-one does. ;)

Different braking points I get, but braking where there’s no braking is dangerous.

Like I said, everyone is different.
There's a very good chance only you weren't braking there, so you were the odd one out.
Or maybe not.

Let's not get into linguistics now ;) Corners have braking points, turn-in points, and apexes. At the braking point you may brake hard, brake little, tap the brake, lift off, lift a bit, or even simply start praying the tyres will hold it. At turn in you may steer the car, flick it, or even use a bump or a piece of grass to make it flick. Still they are braking and turn-in points. :D

As for the accident: I do not care and I was the first to apologize. I just found the description a bit libellous. ;)

The opening lap of the reverse grid race 2 - to show the good quality of racing with 21 cars.

Wally, I think that's race 3. There is no pile up in T3/4 where grat rammed me .....

Yes, you're right - that was race 3.

I know, me too. Actually, as soon as I read "opening lap of race 2" I thought: he must mean race 3 because I made a mess in race 2!

So Godzilla, I guess you didn't feel the need to brake into T3/T4 (whatever it is) in race 1 (lap 4?) when I braked and Freezer behind me braked but you flew past Freezer and took me out. Then you drove off with no redressing of the incident. Two weeks in a row you have taken me out from behind mate.
It's just getting a bit tiresome for me at the moment. I have been taken out by other people in 4 of the last 6 races, and the last race I had 52% restrictor due to other people crashing into me.

I hope my luck changes soon ....

Great video. Of course it was race 3. Audio was up first and it was frustrating to hear you guys revving and my screens were still black...then the penalty as the icing on the cake...well, that was my contribution to that clean start  ;)

I did apologise to you at the time and got no response. I can give you a heap of reasons why I did what I did but none of them will change anything so can we just please move on here?
