    It really depends on what you are doing out on the track. Competetive racing is totally different than lapping days or even point-by "racing" (I've heard the term "lapping with a winner" used and I would agree). It really depends on the two cars as well. On lapping days you usually have a large performance difference. When we first started road racing (lapping) several times I had someone late pass at the end of a straight. It took several times for me to realize that although the pass seemed late to me, the other car had way better brakes, and it really wasn't that "late " for them. There are some cars in our libre series that I will give a late wave to because I know they can complete the pass safely. Others I wouldn't dare.

    We started with the libre series and have really only lapped with that group. literally our first time on a road course (full size) was during a libre event. Nigel knew we both had lots of oval racing experience, and told us he would keep an eye on us. Can someone explain what the purpose of these schools are for? Being new to road racing, I don't really understand it all yet.

    Mostly they get people used to the track and the rules of the road out there. You could maybe pick up some racecraft from ASE but your money is probably better spent just racing, and you don't have a passenger seat anyhow

    Not usually the race schools, but some general HPDE yes.. 1morelap for one, which I'm happy about.

    Very happy at this 'requirement' for 1morelap. Made sure I knew what I was doing before running myself and I feel comfortable out there with everyone knowing they've all been vetted
