Do you over-drive your mirrors?

My brother recently sent this clip of a C6 Corvette driver at Mid-Ohio. As far as we can tell, the guy is happily cranking away at his big American monster car, and his G2X (similar to a Traqmate) tells us he's turning laps in the 1:50 range. How hard is he pushing? He loses it and spins a few turns into the next lap. As the car settles, we hear a puttering sound and a MINI Cooper motors past the now-helpless American wundercar. Over on Corvette Forums, the guy claims to have "missed the gas pedal" while attempting a downshift, and claims he had just passed the MINI (although we never saw that). Is the Corvette pedal arrangement really that bad? Where's the finesse, people? Was this guy just driving his mirrors in fear of the MINI? You decide...

  1. It might also have something to do with the way he yanked the steering wheel over. Putz.
