Thanks Richard, and yes we are staying thru Sunday.......this is also vacation & social life for me! The RA course has "eaten" many cars at this event....it is extremely fast and very unforgiving. The big bore (fastest) cars seem to get bitten worse, I suppose because of their speed.
My in car video, which we reviewed yesterday, showed a quick snap to the right at rear of my car as I enter and brake for RH T1, followed by a snap to left as I correct for the RF flat tire (the pop I heard right before the incident?). When the LR tire catches the gravel at edge of course, the car starts it's three rolls on the drivers side......thanks to 1 year old Simpson helmet/HANS, FIA belts (new) & FIA seat, I'm merely bruised and sore.....the helmet and car look like they have been to Iraq!!
It's a shame since that session Wed. produced my three fastest consecutive laps as well as my fastest single lap just before the incident.......and many SSB cars went faster Thursday. Being the optimist that I am, I figure I would have gone faster too.......guys I beat during the regular season are 6th on grid (of course with much more experience at RA than myself).
Thanks again for the great PanAm support throughout this season!
