It doesn't bother me a bit. If you're consistent and not braking abruptly way ahead of where you should be, you'll be fine.

Nobody gave me the finger or cussed me out so.... I guess I will be doing it again.
You were looking good out there David

this is why learning the race line is so important. don't worry about your speed, if someone faster wants to pass, they will. ride the line, and be predictable. heck when you get passed by someone a little quicker than you, try to follow them (within your comfort zone) you'll most likely learn something.

I tried that.. I would loose sight of them by next turn... And then they would pass me again before the end of the lap...

i should have said, 'step out of your comfort zone slightly', but opted not to in the interest of safety

Still uploading super long. About 23 mins of me getting passed by everyone on both sides. I like to think I was passing them in reverse. I'll post it up tomorrow.

Saturday was the best possible time to try out level 3. Usually I rarely get to pass anyone in level 3. Saturday I felt like a rock star out there lol
