That comes down to situational awareness and exit strategies. The car in front should be predictable but you ALWAYS need to understand how you will adjust should something happen.

If the situation should require it, a pass without a point is an option and an exit strategy. Sometimes (usually IMO) slowing down to a stop or crawl is the worst option. I'll take a black flag vs wadding my car up.

DISCLAIMER: This should not be an option exercise because someone won't point you by.

Lastly, I tell my students to always be careful of corvettes and vipers which are notorious for parking in the corners. I force them to back off when approaching a braking zone. Also makes for a better pass since you'll have room to accelerate out of the corners.
