        Yeah.... that's on me. My deepest apologies. I've been feeling crummy about that.

        I was out of whack coming out of the pit-side tight section and was passed on the inside towards the pinch. I lifted to avoid contact but was pushed from behind for an unintentional PIT.

        That pinch was consistently a risky place to pass, and to Dave's point, drivers in the pack looking forward and acknowledging the **** hitting the fan could have avoided this, but the vast majority of the fault is mine due to inexperience and poor decision making. For that I'm terribly sorry.

        This league has been a ton of fun, and I think I've gotten a bit faster as I haven't been lapped in a few weeks (*knock on wood* there's still time) but I have had to have some basic etiquette things explained to me throughout the winter. A sticky post discussing "Competitive Karting Rules and Etiquette" may be a useful thing to have for future reference. Basic things like "How to restart after a yellow flag" as well as more nuanced things like the "Good touch vs Bad touch" discussion could be covered there. If any of you karting veterans are ever bored at your desk. ;]

        Anyway, sorry again. Thanks to everyone for your patience with me, on and off the track. The approach-ability of MAC members remains one of the clubs most valuable assets in my opinion.

        Yeah, I want to say sorry as well. It really through me off and I wasn't sure who did it and I was really pissed off. Ended up being the worst day I have had karting I think ever (placement wise). Oh well that is what can happen and my reaction was not great so I'm sorry. You have really improved!

          I was just behind this situation and I really donít think Iíd assign complete fault to any one person. I recall Ryan was in the middle, Ando on the left closest to the wall, and Salah on the right, having just passed Ando and trying to pass Ryan, with me right behind Salah. I assume Ryan didnít see Ando, Ando couldnít really move either direction and also couldnít slow down fast enough to avoid spinning Ryan, and if even if Ryan did or could see Ando, he couldnít have moved very far right due to Salah. Lotsa stuff happened in split seconds.

              I won't be making the final day (I want to watch the F1 race!).

              This was my first karting experience, and it was certainly interesting. I went from being really ****ty to just kind of ****ty, so progress was made. Thanks to Jeff for leading the effort to organize and run the league(s).
