Obviously, I have been very far to the "don't even offer to pay" side of this argument. And I think I am right about that and the long term consequences of not doing so. But I do like the "pay for the weekend costs" idea. That should be affordable for anyone at the track and is a pretty nice gesture.
Yea, that's a nice gesture given that their weekend would be wrecked at a minimum.
I guess I just shake my head at the guys tracking expensive cars which then freak out when someone does something as normal as dropping two off in front of them and kicking up some rocks into their car. It's a racetrack, not Cars and Coffee, man up about the risks.
I will say I give a wide berth to the guys with really $$$ cars, as we're not out there racing, and I want to give them an extra bit of space during a pass or following. I understand the economics of it, but you've got to accept the consequences when it comes time to pay the piper and "stuff goes wrong on track," as it is wont to do.
