Ryan Briscoe is dumb. This is the IRL, not F1, there are no designated passing zones, and drivers are supposed to race. The stewards are also dumb for insisting that double-file restarts are the way to go.
Well, amazingly, I disagree with both of the things you have said. There are no "designated passing zones", but the way Hunter-Reay was trying to do it here could only have lead to the result it has actually lead to. He was not in front of Briscoe going into the corner and then he also clipped the curb and went straight into Briscoe, whose anger I fully understand. (Much as I usually like Hunter-Reay).
Also, the Double File Restarts have created some very interesting situations in this race and the drivers have started to get used to it, and will continue to do so in the next few races.
Also, the people at Barber Motorsports Park need to seriously look into getting a few (more) tire barrieres on the outside of some of the corners, as I'm sure Mike Conway will agree. They can hardly be too expensive for people who could afford to build such a great facility.
Also, I agree about Viso. He is not a traditional reject like the people we love at this website, he is just a driver very much out of his depth and a danger to himself and to others. He simply cannot go on ruining other people's races like he did again today. And I seriously doubt even PDVSA could pay for as much as he keeps ruining every weekend. He seemed like a nice enough guy in the interview on Versus after the crash, but regardless: This can't go on. He needs to get his act together FAST.
