I suspect I will collect a fair amount of footage of me accidentally punting folks at this turn over the years.
Come to think of it, outside of T1, lap 1, I can’t think of too many instances where folks get tangled up on the way out of a turn. Definitely more common to mess up going in as opposed to out. Braking and all that I suppose.
That train has left the station. Unless I intentionally do naughtiness, which I generally dont, I dont feel guilt. Sure, its not fun screwing up and spinning a guy out, but it happens and its normal. I got taken out in t1 of pre. It was not fun but I am pretty sure the kid who did it wasn’t out to get me personally. Me taking this guy out had nothing to do with that though. It was literally the final lap, I was closing and we had no time for offline adventures. He made a mistake and I steamrolled him. Unlike last time, I didnt have a choice, and therefore feel no guilt. This is also a learning moment for my opponent when it comes to this turn, so a good experience for him, but not great in the moment.
