Skeptical of the Spectacle
- Feb 24, 2013
What a ridiculous thing to say. Count the number of guys spinning out on their own while trying to keep up to competitive speed. Take a look (and listen) to in-car cameras, with guys apexing at 45-60 mph below entry speeds, and fighting like hell to get back to full throttle before the guy ahead... or the guy coming from behind. Look at how many cars slip up the hill out of the bottom groove... and get passed because of it. Dumbing down that skill-based racing with high drag and high downforce and anemic motors will be a farce to those who understand what it takes to race at the front. And those who don't understand and don't care anyway... they won't be entertained for long by the relentless droning sound of WFO packs.
All racing cars are easy to drive slowly a couple tenths off the pace. Driving at competitive speed, and doing that while going head-to-head against the other fast guys... has never been easy and certainly isn't easy in 2018.
Yeah the guy is on a roll. Full blown apologist mode and the rest of your post is totally on point.
