In the first video clip my thanks go to the driver of the white S2000 for the pass on the exit from turn 6.  Not easily visible in the video clip is his point-by, a hand signal that told me to pass him on the left. He held off from going to full throttle in order to let me by, and we both altered our line through turn 6 for the sake of the pass -- He stayed right while I stayed left. If we had both been "going for it" it would be a deadlock between equally matched cars.

This gentleman has my thanks for his courtesy and cooperation in the interest of safety on the track.
