    Disadvantaged car: Jesper Taulborg
    Team: RPM


    Reported car: Mike Simian
    Reported Team: FOR

    Description:

    http://www.megavideo.com/?v=PVCTO6NL


    Was not a major incident, but still one that effected the winning overtake the race.
    Jesper in P1 ran wide and Mike came up the inside, and shoved Jesper off the track, giving him no chance of passing him back up the inside. Mike had better tyres and may of won the race without this incident, but it was still a dirty move and was one that didn't need to be taken. Even if it's the closing laps, you still can't shove somebody off the track.

    When i saw it Live it looked indeed a bit dirty also. There are cleaner ways to overtake but this doesnt deserve a penalty for me.

    I find this report is stretching it slightly to say the least.
    If this is not racing then I must have been watching another sport all my life.
    I was not aware I had to give a driver a chance to reovertake me? I have the inside, I'm side by side and I have the line.
    Its well within normal racing. (Theres barely any contact at all, there could have been none what so ever and then you couldn't have made this report and the outcome of the pass would have been the same, its millimeters in the heat of battle) Also.... Shoved? really!?! and Dirty? well thats for everyone to decide now I suppose, but thats not how I saw it.
    Looking back at how you (Ross) have voted "no penalty" to incidents in the past all I can say is I'm shocked.
    Has it really come to the point we make incident reports because our car has been overtaken.

    Well this one is easy as there is no incident.
    Both where fighting for the same piece of tarmac, called Racing.
    Watch a F1 race and you will see plenty, and those are openwheelers.

    First report i see of this sort.
    tbh, If we all start making reports like this then Xosé and David will have a to get help to handle them :).

    There is no incident to speak of here. Jesper was on the inside but was behind in to the corner.

    Come on guys, report incidents not just because you are pissed by an overtake.

    Thanks Michael :)

    About the incident... for me its hard to judge as there is slight lag on the replay but in the real world it would be a racing incident so thats what i will go for here.

    Project D voted -2 points. Too aggressive pass, lucky there was no obstacle in the grass part.

    BFR voted no penalty, from our perspective this is very tight racing but no incident since Mike sticks to the line which Jesper conceded a little earlier
