Part of the blame for that goes to PDA for telling people that the bowl was a passing zone!  No matter how many times I yelled at my students, they continued to pass and allow to BE passed there

So the first time I was there I caught and passed a GT2 in the FX and the first time you're there, you're blocking a guy in a GT3 :P

Keeping someone behind you's easy... just act like a drunk guy

I saw Ray out there up this guy's ass and just thought the guy in the Imprezza was being a dick not pointing Ray by.  I saw it for 2-3 laps before I stopped paying attention

That's downright embarassing... for the Imprezza driver!

And you tried to harass me this past weekend but I just ignored you ;)

You can see in the video you almost tried to force it by not going straight off like we always tell students
