Bill Auberlen and Robin Liddell held a seminar on proper side by side racing.

Grand Am has seen its share of asshattery lately mostly at the hands of Colombian driver Gustavo Yacaman, the Baghdad Bob of racing ( "Not my fault, Rojas gave me no room"!).
Here are a couple of real pros showing you can race side by side at the limit and not ball it up.
Turner Motorsport's Bill Auberlen is catching the Stevenson Motorsport Camaro of Robin Liddell at Mid Ohio, a very technical track with slippery off camber corners. Auberlen sets the Camaro up for the "Esses" on the outside of turn 6 and makes a great lunge into 7, a tricky left with a blind exit. Beautiful.
Auberlen, with co-driver Paul Dalla Lana won the race after the Corvette of Eric Curran was penalized for blatantly punting the Turner M3 in the final lap.
