People watch racing for the excitement. Showroom stock type racing is often a fan favorite, because the racing is competitive and door to door. Of course door to door means lots of crashes and fans love to see those. The Castrol Canadian Touring Car Championship this past weekend at the Honda Indy Toronto provided more than its share of on track excitement.
I’ve had pretty good luck on Fridays at the Indy, catching the big Audi incident last year and then the tight squeeze above during the Friday afternoon session. As Anthony Rapone in the Honda Civic worked his way through the street course’s 90 sharp right hand turn 8, it looked as though he had overcooked it and the car began to understeer into the tires. As the car bounces back out into the track, the real fun begins.
