I second that motion. But, to be honest, I have never thought much of him. He ought to go back to the 250s and learn how to race.
I'm of the unpopular opinion that 94 shouldn't have put hisself in that position. Smart racing and he wouldn't have got stuck behind him. Of course Wilson should have gave the line up also. Lesson learned by all of them.

Yep Dean knew what was up, I am sure he saw what was coming out of one of the bowl turns behind him. Ken should have just blown through him at the first opportunity instead of trying to take the outside long way around pass and playing nice. Webb took advantage of a position offered to him by a teammate who clearly saw the blue flag at multiple locations on that lap

He should have put a move on him like young Jett did in the 250s

A friend was trying his first TORCS race yesterday, asked for tips, one that I gave him was not to follow, pass quick and move on.

"I don’t really know what to say. Just another bad situation!?😆 i don’t know. Should have been my win. I m sure everyone saw what was going on but after being stuck behind Dean for too long i ended up hitting his back wheel over the wall and almost crashed and then almost jumped into the back of him on the last lap and just like that i slipped into second.

Lots of valuable points again that got taken.

Anyway. @deanwilson15 and i are cool. Not going to hold grudges and get over it. We have lots of racing ahead of us. Seems like i never pick the easy route anyway. Where is the fun in that😄. I am just happy to be racing with and for my family. Life is better that way

Yea, Dean apologized and KR seems to be able to take it in some manner of stride, but I am willing to be the next guy to slow down
may well get punted off course.

I agree; Roczen isn't an aggressive racer and sometimes doesn't make good choices. There were several opportunities in the first race where he could have taken the lead, but just waited and fortunately it worked out for him. In the first race of the series last weekend, he had several opportunities to pass Barcia, but it looked like he just didn't want to do it.

If Ken Roczen got docked 4 points for missing one Red Cross flag, what should the penalty be for ignoring 5 - 10 blue flags?
You have to be a title contender for a points penalty to matter in my opinion.

Guys like Dean rely on bonuses for positions, that would be a better punishment.

But racing is racing, I had lappers take their time moving yesterday. Dealing with that is part of the game.

Roczen is on fire.... Style for miles, awesome international superstar. I love the way he bounced back with a three-Peet after the blue flag craziness. Probably should have not deleted those Indy races so I could watch the again since the power is on😎
