"No racing, no incidents!" so per that definition every incident is a 'racing incident'. Is that really the direction we wanna go? Welcome to stockcar/touring car racing...

Deliberate action is quite obvious.

Stock and Touring car racing put on great shows, I see no reason why fendered cars cant get into the bump and grind as well. It wouldn't be as much as stock and ourers because the GT cars are much more fragile.

so he can't take a defensive line? I'd probably have just gone to outbrake him, but, he compromised his line into the corner to defend. The responsibility still lies on the overtaking driver.

Sure, you can take a defensive line; just make sure there's no solid objects in said line.

This has and always will be a cop out argument. When a move is made by an overtaking driver and a responsive move is made by the defending driver and they come together, they can share the blame, in my book. But I am sure I wrong...

Yeah, kinda all happened at once, but I don't agree with most if your posts and we won't agree on this. I'm fine with that.
