I should probably stay out of this but I find it amazing how two people can view the same video (the RRR one) and come to such different conclusions! If either of you plans to be at Roebling the end of June I'd be glad to offer my evaluation in person, but not in a public forum.

I guess I do have one comment after watching the RRR video a couple of times:

I've got them on both sides, but a fisheye mirror on the right A-pillar definitely helps with visibility of a car that's on my right rear quarter.

The contact is troubling. Race incidents occur, but seems it was unnecessary. During the weekend, I received contact, a ruined wheel, a dent and a tire mark on the rear quarter of my car. A fellow competitor unnecessarily attempted to pass ------> in the Esses -------> during the practice day! Apology offered and fully accepted. Hopefully, future racing will take into account we're not receiving paychecks and most expect to race w/o the risk taking and drama.

If it manifests itself to the level of a culture --- I'm gone.

Yes, even if I'm not sure I was in the wrong, my default position is to apologize.
