Re: Runoffs Video

I agree with Clark.  In particular, the camera angle and lens tends to distort
things.  Try videotaping using a tripod and watching from the same point.
 You'll see two different races.

F500 Site - new stuff and news.

A couple tidbits about the F500 site (http://www.f500.org):

Hot news! The F500 Racing Web has been selected as the Racing Ring Site
of the Month! The benefit is that the F500 site banner will get a lot of
extra exposure on other racing sites this month which should generate
some additional interest in F500. Whoopee!!!!

Also, I've made a few changes to the site over the weekend. We have a
new, prettier header on the pages, and the navigation buttons got an
overhaul. I was sick and tired of the old look....

After a zillion requests over the years for more pictures, I've set up a
F500 photo gallery on the F500 Racing Web site. What's there is
basically photos that I've had kicking around for some time. Most of
these have been used on the site at one time or another. I'm looking for
contributions. If you have photos that you can email me, I'd be glad to
include them. I can also scan photos if you mail them to me (address is
on the photo gallery page on the web site), and I will make sure that
the originals are returned.

One gotcha... if a commercial photographer took the picture, I need to
know who is so I can give proper photo credits. In most cases the
photographer owns the copyright, so I need to get their OK to use the
picture. I already have the OK form several of the photographers who
frequent SCCA events, but I want to make sure I don't get my butt in a
sling for posting copyrighted works without permission.

RE: Runoffs Video

I just watched it again this morning... the camera angle is a bit weird,
but it looked to me like Wesley was just driving the line and David
tried to go underneath since he had a good run going. I've done the same
thing at the kink. That dirt on the inside is packed pretty tight from
all the big heavy cars dropping wheels there, so it's really not a big
deal to drop a couple tires off there to make a pass.

I certainly didn't see Wesley make any move at all except to stay on the
line. From the perspective of the camera shot (which can be deceiving),
it looked like David wasn't quite there but decided to go for it anyway.
I probably would have done the same thing. One can hardly fault a driver
for holding his line and letting the guy behind try to find a way
around. That's racing, isn't it?

Best view in the house--runoffs video cont'

The runoffs is a race whee it seems like everyone drives every lap like it is the last lap of the race. 
Therefore, (from the driver's  view directly behnd the incident in question), Wesley' move did not appear
as intentional as the camera made it seem.
Does anyone watch their mirrors  during this race?

Sincerely,
current F500 champion

p.s. Anyone like Alex Zanardi or the '95 F500 winner??

Just so you know. I cannot get to the mailing list area of the web site now,
nor can I use the Back button to escape the error message that comes up.

RE: F500 Site - new stuff and news.

Hi John,

I'm in there making a few updates to the archive configuration. The
archives are regenerating now. It'll take about 5 minutes for the
process to complete then you should be able to access it again.

Thanks for the heads up... I had actually finished the changes but I
forgot to run the regeneration routine to update the archives
themselves.

That's exactly what Hill did to Schumacker (sp?) for several laps during
the Japanese GP this last weekend..... What goes around comes around..
