I also like (oYo)!!!!

Default BRZ vs McLaren, it appears the BRZ won

Looks like the Crawford car took light damage from the article. regarding the McLaren, so much for carbon fiber being hard to damage.

Yeah it would be nice for a video to surface to determine who was maybe at fault for it, but from most of the eyewitnesses who were there, it wasn't Crawford's fault.

I was at that track watching POC races from the bridge in one of those pictures a week ago. Based on where the McLaren ended up, the damage to Crawford's car, and what the line is through there, I'm reasonably confident that the McLaren is at fault.

On open passing, the car passing has to go off line. There's no reason that Quirt would have been offline through there. I'm not sure what the McLaren was thinking other than that he thought he had the right of way to the racing line just as Quirt moved right. And clearly with how far back he hit Quirt's car, he did not have right of way because he was nowhere near finished with the pass. It's the only way I can figure it from the pictures I am seeing in that article.

Just my armchair assessment with limited photographic evidence.

I heard the McLaren was driving recklessly all day and already had 2 strikes. They were saying that something like this was bound to happen. Such a bummer.

Didn't the McLaren have a GoPro camera stuck on the drivers side? That's one video we'll never see. If it had been Crawfords fault, that video would have gone viral by now.............
