I figured we should start a thread for Runoffs videos. Please everyone post your video from the week! Would love to see everyone's perspective.

I will post some of my race footage soon, the view from the rear camera is nothing short of amazing with mm's between three cars sliding three wide through the turns

 

In the meantime here are 3 laps from the Night Qualifying Session #2

I bet that will be fun to watch.. there were several times I thought we(you, me, lamb and a few others) were 4 wide and I tried giving as much as I could with you guys on slicks.. One time I swear you were pointing 180-270 degrees the wrong way in T1 :)

Yes, I did enter the braking zone to T1 completely backwards in the early laps and it somehow came back to me. Did not want to repeat that! Came close to clipping the tire wall at the exit of T6 and had several near misses with cars and running off the track. Had to take it really easy on slicks, which makes what Andrew Carbonell and Jonathan Goring did on slicks even so more impressive.

 

And Jim yes you feature in a lot of the footage often 3 and 4 wide just mm apart. As I said, I have nothing but respect for the drivers in this class for keeping it green in those trying conditions.

I have  never seen so many SMs packed so close together turn after turn.  I believe the leader of the that group was p7 at the time and I was P15 with about 3 more behind me all going 3 or 4 wide through 1 3, 5 and 6 for several laps until the dries came in on lap 9.

Highlight of my Runoffs week.

Tuesday night qualifying.

Right rear tire blows out (Nascar T3) on first flying lap with Mike Collins bump drafting.

Missed 1/2 the session changing the tire but managed to set 11th best time at the end.

I just watched mine as well. Insane how close we all were. I have no marks on the car at all. Selin and I actually did the mirror flip coming out of one. At one time you, me, Selin and Lamb had no more than 6 inches between any two cars with all four cars sliding :) Not the results we were hoping for, but watching it back was still pretty impressive.

certainly not my best :( some good stuff with Hille,Danny,Selin, Lamb, Cotrell and myself going three and four wide through one.. most is boring, but from 17-18 min or so to about 30 min mark has some action. Selin and I flip mirrors at the 25:21 mark. Yes we lost more and more each lap with this strategy :)

Some good racing the first few laps, otherwise uneventful.  If you enjoy mediocrity, you will enjoy this.
