That's exactly right DW! I was following that car during practice and was impressed that it was as fast as it was (cool back-fire flames too). Then, he pulled that stunt of off-roading and then returning to the track without looking around and almost T-boned me. He also brought a ton of dirt back on track, hence the finger.... (I'm not proud of that finger, it was just a reflex learned from my ex-wife...)

The very next weekend at Redline Time Attack's Mod class finals at Laguna Seca, he went off into the turn 2 gravel trap which brought out the emergency vehicles. They parked on track which ruined the session. The race should have been restarted or no emergency vehicles should have been out there as he was way out in the gravel and couldnt continue anyway. Unfortunately, this caused a yellow flag condition thus preventing racers from improving their times in that last session unless they were willing to go 100% with tow trucks on track, not me....

That 510 is awesome and the driver is fast but he needs to learn that he is not the only guy on the track before he hurts someone....
