Started 20th, finished 20th. Probably the last race for me in Gen2.

Quite a mess at the start. After watching the Gen3 LCR, I knew I wanted to go for the grass on the left, not the sand pit on the right.

First couple laps have some "interesting" action (I edited out the "nothing to see" laps):

Many of you have seen the strange dual GoPro setup I have been running. It creates 3D movies.
If you have a VR headset, red/blue 3D glasses or Google Cardboard viewer, try this version:

Tom,
Nice job! Must have been a great experience. Sorry you will be leaving the Gen2 ranks. Going Gen3 or a different class?

Another Gen 2 video from Indy. I had a decent view of the start of the Turn 1 incident, before I also bailed into the grass driver's left. Most of our race was spent trying to catch Denny in 4th, which was going ok until Turner and I caught some lapped cars at Turn 12 around 28:15.

Great job avoiding the wreckage you guys. I was on the right side of the carnage and got forced off in the gravel trap. Thankfully I was able to drive all the way through the gravel - but when I emerged at the other end I was in 38th place. I have to admit it was fun racing back from 38th to 23rd. What a great week in Indy!

Tough week for me with 2 engine changes and a new gearbox for good measure. SRF guys came through and helped till midnight Fri. after practice. 2nd engine NG too. 3rd time was a charm.

Was advised to stay left on start with grass being preferable to kitty litter. Good result starting 38, finishing P18. Great time, memorable experience.
