I got a little toasted while watching NHL playoffs last night and decided to throw my poorly written 2 cents in the arena.
"Oh boy, where to start? All this talk of owning your mistakes comes off as completely insincere bullshit when; 1
. You come off so non-chalant about a very dangerous situation in which you blew 20+ double yellows, passed multiple cars, some of those cars WHILE passing an EV/crew hooking up a disabled car WHILE ALSO talking about your entrepreneural "laser focus". Buddy, nobody at the track (drivers, crew, flaggers, organizers etc) gives a shit what you do off track, how many businesses you've built from nothing and how much money you make. Fast drivers with laser focus for 2, 3, or more hours at a time are a dime a dozen. They also know how to watch for and obey flag stations. At the very least they'd put 2+2 together that there's an EV on track and that everyone is reducing pace. What you had was red mist, not laser focus. You exhibited some DE1 level skillset, at best, with both your complete lack of awareness and also pace.
2. Being a newbie is no excuse. If anyone should know the rules and regs inside out, it's a newbie. And by newbie we're clearly talking about a driver signed off solo who is well aquianted with watching flag stations and what the various flags mean. You stated some racing creds at the beginning of the video. So which is it, have you raced before, do you have a license, or are you newbie? Can't have it both ways, unless we just go ahead and assume those credentials are rubbish, which obviously they are. I'm about four events into endurance racing with another org, I've blown a local yellow while closely following a competitor, slowed down when I saw the next flag station, and came in as soon as I was black flagged. No yelling required because I knew the rules, knew what I did wrong, and served my penalty. Lesson learned, no drama.
3. Name dropping and gloating about your friends with deep pockets. Just. Frakin. Lulz. Here's the deal "homeslice", no one cares. Grassroots racers on shoestring budgets (most of us) don't care to have more jabronies like you on track. People who think they're important by bringing money to our sport while blantly ignoring rules and treating the track workers and organizers as lesser individuals, calling them an "old boys club" because they roasted you for your gross negligence. You and your kind are only making motorsport worse. Please leave or go back to DE1 with your ego checked at the door or observe from the sidelines while truly promoting the future of motorsport. "Don't bother me with the facts, we've already made up our mind." What facts were gonna save you? None. Absolutely none.
4. Your team captain has already refuted your claim that he told you to stay out. You're a pathological liar with your head stuffed so far up your own ass you belive your own bullshit.
Maybe you're doing great things outside motorsport, but it's hard to believe when you now have two videos on VinWiki showing your complete lack of personal responsibility. Sure, people not involved with motorsports, fanboys, acquiantances, and otherise might have your back and all these comments you can "Like", but you can clearly see there's a strong following of actual motorsport enthusiasts that see straight through you. If you want to prove you really give a shit, you've got some work to do."
Oh, and here's his first video on VINWiki where he takes zero personal responsibility for putting his car in a wall. I would love to hear the intructors end of the story.
