And here it is. Following on from the last post about my Spa cock-up, here’s the video:
As predicted, it isn’t *quite* as I remembered it. For starters, the Clio clearly wasn’t lifting at all, he might not have even known I was there. Without question I should’ve bailed out of the overtake halfway down the straight. Somehow I’d convinced myself that the Clio *was* lifting and so it was safer to complete the move. And then because I was focussing on him, the braking zone arrived before I was ready for it and caught me out (who moved the braking zone?!) And then of course it was wet on the left (where I wasn’t planning to be) so I couldn’t stop on it. Fortunately Ben in the Porsche saw it all developing and didn’t turn in on me – thanks again Ben and sorry for putting you in that situation!
So that’s what happened. That was my big mistake and I publish it here in the hope I will learn from it and be a bit less stupid next time.
Place your bets.
