So, here is another.
This is just a compilation of the passes from one session...until the camera completely bugs out. I tend to do most of my passing on the brakes, and I think it is because I am a bit heavier. 6-1, and 190+. Also, I can carry decent corner speed, but I am not fully comfortable passing AND this was Intermediate. I try to pass courteously.
Towards the end of the clip, the camera power plug rattled loose.
After the 3:00 point, it gets a little hard to follow.
At 3:25, the video cuts to me trailing an R1. I had pulled up behind him almost a whole lap prior. On the front straight, I was able to pull up along side him, and I am pretty sure he saw me...then I braked early and pulled in behind him again. It would have been a stuff-pass, and I don't like to do that.
Anyway, I got a better drive out of the keyhole, and pulled along side again going down the back straight 3:35. I am pretty good at braking late...especially for Intermediate (and especially for 3rd trackday...I like to think).
He brakes first 3:45. I was at 150, and I think he stopped accelerating at about 145. He sees me go past and decides to LET OFF the BRAKES!
I am assuming that about a second latter he realized that was a bad idea, and I guess he target fixated. 3:48.
You can see the black streak 3:51. from his back tire. He got it slowed down pretty good, and I watched him tip over at about 20mph into the beach.
Let me know what you think.
My riding,and the passing, and the mistakes, and etc.
