DwD 0271: DwD Storytime – The One About Fred Lobster Trying to Kill Ben and Ann
On this issue of Dominating with Dawson, we have our second DwD Storytime episode. Here, Ben recounts a recent track day event where he found a peculiarity in the “Fred Lobster” car. This led to a weird issue where the steering and brakes would not respond. If this was a new car, it would likely be a safety nanny programming issue. However, since this car is far from new, the true root cause is still tbd. The story is spectacular and the way that Ben dealt with the issue is something that we all can learn from. You never know when something can break or behave in an unexpected manner on track. Part of growing as a racing driver is being able to deal with an ill behaved car or another car that does something unexpected.
