Should this thread not be a poll?

Shouty on Nico

It's one of those ones where you need complete faith in your cars abilities and the balls to pull it off. That's also the bumpiest part of the circuit so any setup deficiencies would have thrown a car off-track when you're pulling that much G.

I vote for TC on me. Tiny gap and a slidy me, very ballsy and hard racing from both of us.

Also should say the Tommy on me at Hockenheim was because I forgot to change gear through that section - oops! :oops:

Shame I didn't make the impossible gap at the Nurburgring stick! Best move ever 8-)

That would have been unbelievable.

Also I thought it was because of Nik getting a slower run out of the corner. What's with us and missing gears!

Alex on Nik at Suzuka, making it stick despite going round the outside.

Shouty's one on me was due to me tapping the inside wall, I lose about 4mph and he gets a run. It was brave though to go for that.

I'm going to vote for Tommo at Road America.

I'll go for Shouty on Nik at Infineon. May have had a run but still very ballsy going round the outside at that part of the circuit.

Just noticed something rather LOL.

Every overtake video except PJ's is either by an Indypendable or on an Indypendable!

Shame I didn't enter, but that being said, I can't really remember any passes I did.

Some great ones in there. Shouty's move was awesome and took courage, Cheesey's was very clean and precise.

My vote goes for AJ's Suzuka pass however. Car positioning was brilliant, it was clean and that corner is a bitch at the best of times so a pass around the outside with no scary moments is very well done.

I've changed the board settings. You should be able to have 12 poll choises now.

So many good passes to choose from.

I think I'm going to exclude passes on multiple cars. They all seem to be on the 1st or 2nd corner and I think they're a little more luck than judgement, or subject to circumstance. I'm also going to exclude my own pass, even though it was awesome.

Passes round the outside are always the most impressive in my eyes. Shouty round the outside of Icthyes at the first corner at Infineon is certainly ballsy, but he's won enough this season already, so that's that one out.

I think it's down to:

Tomcheesey's pass on Dan round the outside of the corner before the Carousel at Road America. It's a shame Dan got a slippy getaway, that pass could have lasted all the way through the next corner.

Butler round the outside of Scott at the turn before the first underpass at Motegi. The track is narrow there and that corner tightens a fair amount, it's easy to go off if you're already wide.

Mr E on Icthyes at Nurburgring. That circuit is very bumpy and narrow, and overtaking anyone anywhere is difficult, especially in these cars. I think I'm voting for this one. yeah.

Voted for Shouty on Nik at Infineon as its the biggest trouser browner. A driver on an absolute mission, no hesitation. Awesome.

Runners up: Mr E (Nurburgring), Alex (Suzuka), Cheesey (Road America)
