    Wow - I saw the print version of that story this AM and it was so edited down it made little sense.

    The online version -- and video -- explains it better.

    Two auto journalists in the Cup race from the same publication, 2 crashes. One is bad enough that the car doesn't finish the race!

    And there's also this article that describes Booth's spin & crash:

    Mosport's infamous 'Corner Two' bites Driving's own David Booth

    Oh, there’ll be much hammering steel and cursing of stupid auto journalists who think they can actually race, but the little Micra — thanks to the machinations of the magicians in Eric Cote’s GT-Racing pits — will be ready to race Saturday morning.

    Hey - Booth lied!

    I don’t brake. I don’t “breathe” off the throttle. I hold it, as they say when you know you’re about to meet certain death, wide freakin’ open.
    Mosport's infamous 'Corner Two' bites Driving's own David Booth

    The telemetry in the video clearly shows he COMPLETELY lifts off the throttle just before turning in, which predictably lightened up the rear of the car and initiated the first little bit of oversteer, then the snap oversteer in the other direction that spun him into the wall.

    Maybe he's too proud to admit & learn from his mistakes!

    Was thinking today how awesome it would be to get the Micra Forum Club cars on the track before a cup race sort of like what they did with the Porches.

    Slow (!) load time, but fun to watch. I bet they didn't have anyone else yelling "WOO HOO!" as much as that interviewer.

    Hey Pete - who was driving for the hot lap you took?

    They knew and I knew who's car I was jumping in....The reigning champions cars thats which one! I trust Stefan to and everything but I am a REAL fan of the champ and I think he has a very promising future like I'm talking Jacque Villenuve , Paul Tracy, Patrick Carpenter, Ron Fellows kind of future maybe even the next Gilles Villenuve who knows? But he has been a really accessible champion and a fine young gentleman and ambassador for the series and there was never any question who I was riding with!
