Just to correct the broadcasters, FB or Formula 1000 was originally a Canadian class called Formula 4. Class started back in the mid 70's using 750 cc motorcycle engines . The class has actually been around for a long time. I drove a Formula 4 Vixen for 10 years, and we did race at a number of U.S. tracks including Mid-Ohio.
Who wrote the comment in "session notes" that the wheel bumping before the start of the Formula Continental from Saurino and LaRue was "a little gamesmanship"? That attitude and that action is sickening! It is, at best, poor sportsmanship! I would have black flagged both.
