Ive never ever raced on any type of track. what exactly is he doing so wrong? This is a genuine question, i'm 100% retarded when it comes to track racing. It looks like He's just getting way too close.
Couple of things:
1.) The event is an HPDE - IE: Not a race. It's a track day where you can run around a track. Because it isn't a race, there is no need to prove your penis is larger than anyone elses.
2.) This is his like 3rd track day, ever, and the car is on racing slicks, it's a high HP Z06 and he's using all the nannies. This is probably the biggest recipe for disaster ever. When you add that much grip and power and a car that can drive itself you turn it into a very deadly video game. You never get proper respect for the limits of the car because you have no idea where they are and you have no respect for your own lack of driving skill because the car will literally save your ass and keep you from killing yourself.
3.) His lines through most of the corners SUCK.
4.) When you watch the video you can tell he is getting "red misted" and is loosing focus on what's going on around him with exception to the car in front of him that he is "racing". This aggressiveness is the same thing that happens in road rage incidents. On a racetrack you amplify speeds and reduce distances between vehicles.
5.) The instructor is fucking incompetent. He's not saying anything, he's not controlling the student driver, he's not smacking the dipshit in the head for "racing" at an HPDE event.
6.) The event managers and corner workers didn't see this shit happening on course and reign it in by pulling them off the track.
7.) The dude is a total douche nozzle and thinks he's pro.
