My buddy in a GT-3 warned me about the driver in the Aston Martin... Sure enough after waiting for a point-by on three straights, and no blue flag by corner workers, I blew by him. Most drivers are good about point-bys, and I'm generally patient, but enough is enough.

Plus it's just smarter to let the other car pass and try and keep up. Did this often early on and has really taken the pressure off as well as teach one a great deal about line and car control when you're following someone who knows what their doing

I did two laps behind this yahoo at Laguna before he finally realized I wasn't going away. To say it was satifying to finally pass him is an understatement. To find out the hubby got a pic of it... priceless!

That looks like a pit in signal to me. Or, were you expected to jump over the vet.
