Don't Crash On The Warm-Up Lap

Illustration for article titled Don't Crash On The Warm-Up Lap

See this guy at today’s Tudor United SportsCar race at Mosport? This was the warm-up lap, where cars are just supposed to circulate before the green flag drops. Don’t be this guy.

This is Chris Cumming in the number 11 Prototype Challenge car. Not even Chris wants to be this guy right now, as he’s now tasked with fighting up through the slower GTLM field of cars based on production models.


Mosport (sometimes bizarrely referred to as Canadian Tire Motorsport Park) is always a fun time, and United SportsCar is racing on it now. You should watch it, especially since there’s a live stream here.

I was at the Indy 500 when Arie Luyendyk crashed on the warm up lap...and he was one of the favorites to win it. Spinning out of Indy before it started had to sting just a little bit.
