"significantly below that of a licensed competitor" was at gt cup and to be fair, that was because the driver involved had tried to stuff another car into the pitwall at the chequered flag and then pushed him off into the gravel at druids on the cool down lap. disqualified and chucked out of the meeting plus six penalty points.

so that was pretty inappropriate behaviour.

If it were me that had caused hundreds of thousands of pounds of damage to my car and others I would be mortified and probably grovelling at their feet with apologies and offers to help pay the bills, but the way some of these racing drivers just get out of a wreck, shrug and walk back to pits is a bit beyond me.

As indeed was my point. I was replying to the suggestion that the car failure idea was only something posted to social media by his wife.

The 'departing from standards..' bit is fairly standard wording, the 'no evidence of mechanical failure...' bit less so

That's when you have more money than sense, or talent.
