I thought that if you cannot find your correct grid postion, you would have to start from the back of the grid. Well this wasn't enforeced this past weekend.
sunday 9/8 at summit point, I entered the Unlimited GP AM race. Got a good grid, starting on the 5th row. I finished the warm up lap, and proceeded to my grid. As everyone getting ready for the race, this guy creeped up the side of the track and conviniently in front of me. the row in front of me only had 3 positions and he was the 4th guy there! So there he was, left foot 1 foot from the grass, and ride elbow 2 feet from the next guy, blocking my way. I was confused... he wasn't supposed to be there. And I had NO space getting around him.
Flag drops, he chocked on his start. I had to brake to avoid not hitting him. by the time I got around him, the entire first wave has gone into turn 1, and I was behind almost everyone!!! Spent the next lap clawing my way back while cussing profusely, I end up finishing 14th.
Could I have signaled grid marshal? Everyone had settled into the 4-3-4-3 grids and there was no room for him where he stopped. could have caused a huge problem, had I not be able to avoid him. messing up my start and chance for some $$ aside :-p
