It was my firts time there and all i could think about on very single turn was "Dont go over the line". I know my car can be pushed harder but I was paranoid like a mofo!

that's really annoying how he's posting everyone license plates. What do they expect with half the people on NAM buying MINI's b/c they're cute? It'd be interesting to see how liable in a court of law NAM could be if someone got hurt during their organized trip each year.

I guess, "fortunately" NAM is no longer affiliated with the dragon...they dropped it last year. This year it was all grassroots style.

Why? They should see themselves and so should everyone else for total disregard for others safety.

Just my 2 cents

per the linked thread, a bunch of those pics were barely a wheel over the line, and also a good chance it was just people mis-judging the corner. i'm not making excuses, but it doesn't seem like every picture is someone showing total disregard.

so now they're branded as incosiderate boobs because of an honest mistake? granted over the line is over the line, but all these shots are taken out of context...

Sorry I missed MOTD this year. Maybe. Kinda. Might have been the right year to miss.

What fun are curves if you cut them all?

agreed. Total disregard is a bit of a stretch.

It's not that hard to figure out where the yellow line is and when you're crossing it. We all do it pretty much every day, but when people are on the Dragon it's ok to not know if you're just slightly crossing? Ummm, no, not at all. I've done plenty of runs on the Dragon in the past while pushing myself and my car as close to the limit as I felt safe doing on a public road. I don't think I've ever done more than graze the line...
