Based solely on the videos I've seen, which includes their edited video, I agree 100%.  They were going 15+ MPH faster than Tony at the time the light went green.

I feel like in 2017 technology must exist to help the cars leave at the same speed.. why not have two radar guns pointed at each car linked to the green light... cross a line at 65mph and it goes green...?

plus it was a pattern, he didn't pace him the other times.  How hard is it to get on the gas a bit more to match speeds

Glad everyone had fun that attended! It sucks that the finals ended like they did but in roll races that can happen. I agree Tony should have been given a re run. I like many others do not believe it was a clean start. That said; Amar did tell the lambo that he was setting the pace. I would guess that this was incorrect?? I can't imagine Tony would give that up and if he did give that up I think he would have let the lambo leave first from the staging line. Another question; did the staff deem the run invalid and tell Tony there was going to be a re run? If they did in fact say that then Tony would be declared the winner if UGR declined to run.

At this point Amar is in a tough position. Ultimately it is his decision to make. And if my questions above are answered the way I think they will be then it is a bit of a "black eye" for the event. Roll racing has way too many variables and takes a strong organizer to try and manage the chaos when it occurs. I am confident that Amar was trying to make the correct decisions on the fly and he is definitely a stand up guy. Ultimately one group was going to be upset. I would love to hear Amars take on this situation. He is an enthusiast just like all of us and I am sure this was a very upsetting final for him as well.

Every car should be equipped with a GPS camera facing forward slightly angled to the competitor 

 

Garmin makes they and they are great and inexpensive

 

Will show

 - Speed

 - Can hear time car accelerates vs when the light turns green 

 - Can easily be reviewed if there is a start controversy 

 

Road racing requires them in cars to review aggressive driving.

Clear as mud for sure.

 

Stuart, you should come out with a high res video of the truth. especially the side shot where it looks like UG is in the left lane on the autobahn "staging"  ;)

I may or may not have received some footage this morning showing a few key things. I will be in meetings most of the day so it may be tomorrow until I finish. I reached out to Michael Bay about editing this one for us, but he was still in North Carolina on some other project.
