At the time the driver on the left is in the transition from braking to turn-in, could they even see the white car on the right? It's been over 10 years since I was in a formula car, so I'm not sure...

Gravlguts,
not sure if the video was your car, or you know the driver, but it seems that it would have been hard to avoid. A stopped car on track, over a blind crest, with no flags, and dense...

Re: Some Vintage Mosport Love

Wow that looks so different.

Good lord there is no run off exit 1 DL (for the tunnel), and DL in Turn 9 is so close to the track too. The pedestrian bridge at 4 really blocks the view - today...
