You really have to rely on your mirrors, and be aware of traffic coming off the track when you are entering the hot pits from the paddock. Now I know why people back into their parking spots in the paddock--once you have your helmet and HANS on with the harnesses secured, getting prepared for a run, you can't look over your shoulder to back out of your spot.
Yeah, some store had a similar device to the HANS that allowed better side vision. Might wanna sell me that POS HANS and get that.
