ya, it just kinda brought back flashbacks tho, that whole transition happened right as I was starting to watch. I think the first year I watched intermittently was still lemans start, and the following year I was more serious about it it was clutch starts.
I mean, it's the way they did it then and you have to respect it, but I'll be a happy man if I never have to see a lemans start ever again, that shit was just too insane. They say Lawson would q on pole and would have to talk to guys a full 4-5 rows behind him to get it sorted what side of him they where gonna go around, from that far back they're doing what, 120kph? more maybe, as they buzz past him while he's jumping around on the bike, holy fuck.
Part of why I'm not so sure on the 3 bike grid too, kinda safer 'cause there's more gaps to go thru, but not as safe 'cause when there's a problem the guys are coming at you from further back, coming at you faster. God forbid somebody stalled the bike on the front row.
HAIL TO THE KING!!
