Slowcoach should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
On-Track Driving Standards

So fellow racers what do you think of driving standards of your fellow competitors this year.....(in general terms)
At Mallory yesterday 5 of the seven races were red-flagged , in one race alone 4 cars were severely damaged - maybe write-offs . A friend of mine was at Snetterton yesterday and said that in a different race to his there were hot hatches crashing off left right and centre.
I'm prompted to ask this as although I was midgrid at the start , by the end of the first lap I was , for the first time right up amongst and in front of some of the 'big boys' in my series , in fourth and although I stood my ground throughout (and got hit twice) I felt pretty intimidated to start with and at one stage a car got just about past me , cut in and just stood on his brakes - how I didnt ram him I will never know but my resulting lock-up and wobble cost me another place not to mention nearly giving me a heartattack.....anyway this is my first season so I have nothing to compare with but my friend raised concern that new drivers to various series will be reluctant to put sometimes very expensive and/or cars with famous history at risk to such aggressive tactics which will in turn hurt grid sizes , and quite frankly it's unnecessary as we are supposed to be having 'fun' ?????
