    Jag Bumps Cobra For Win

    Both of them were on the very edge so this was just an unfortunate racing incident.

    That was not much of a push.

    At the edge it doesn't take much. I'll bet the Brits were thrilled.
    The one line never heard in Heaven "Gee! I wish I had spent a little more time in the office."

    When you hanging out on the edge of the corner ..... a Feather could spin you around..... had it happen many time..... the best part is you then go like mad to get back to your Pal.... Just so you can Reciprocate or return the favor.....

    He did a nice save to keep the car off the wall. Things happen quick out there and it does not take much. Just like Morris said, a feather could spin you around.

    I remember getting spun in a corner by a light gust of wind which hit the car sideways. As Morris said, when you are already on the very edge it doesn't take much at all to cause a spin. And most racers drive right on the very limit or you are just cruising around behind the pack.
