I've been lapped pretty often in LW races by Ed and people chasing him over the years, and I'm sure I've cost someone a position somewhere at some point. I asked Ed early on if I was "in the way" and he said "don't worry about it, you're fine."
In the 125GP race on Sunday, I lost a position at the start/finish line, because I couldn't get around someone who was having bike issues. I'd built up a pretty good gap but after getting caught up, and her being on a faster bike, she got me at the line. Am I mad about it? No!
IMHO, that's racing. There's always a chance that lappers will figure into the equation regardless of what kind of bike they're on or what class you're in. I'm sorry for Kevin because he was riding AWESOME this weekend, but what would be said if it was just a slow person on an SV that got in his way? Don't let slow people race?
Now, I DO think some rearranging should be done, but I do hope that there's some way to keep the vintage guys on the schedule.
