Simon Pavlick was dicing with another car in Honda Challenge, trying to sneak past him when he had to make a few corrections to avoid his competitor and a spinning out-of-class Porsche 911.

“I had made a move similar to this a few laps prior, undercutting the Civic’s line, and made a mistake myself and couldn’t make it stick,” Pavlick said. “I set it up again hoping that the Porsche would take a tighter line and entice the Civic to stay more midtrack, allowing me to undercut his line to the apex and hopefully get it to stick, side-by-side from there.”

Well, sometimes even the best-laid plans change, as did Pavlick’s. When the Porsche spun, Pavlick steered to avoid it and his competitor, dropped down a gear and resumed the chase.
