Wouldn't bother me, unless I found out they did it purposly, then i'd take my aggression out on their head using my Gemini 2.

Taken it's fair share of being throw against the wall and off the rostrum, sure it would take a skull.

When I'm racing I'm usually mid-pack so encounter both situations. If I'm the one being lapped I'll usually look for a corner to go wide in and let the other driver know "going wide". Many of the fast guys know which corners I'll let them by in so will simply wait and no conversation is necessary.

When I'm lapping, I'll wait patiently for 3-4 corners and if no luck I'll announce "going by inside" or similar, followed by "thank you". If I've been blocked for a full lap its time to punt...by then they've had every possible opportunity to be courteous or for me to force a mistake from them.

It's helpful if your race announcer can encourage courteous driving as well. They should point out if the leader is coming up on lap traffic as newer drivers really aren't aware of the situation sometimes. Praise or chastising from the announcer seems to be the fastest way to train new drivers on track courtesy without causing hard feelings on the driver's stand.

I take every driver I lap as a challenge to improve my skill. My concentration/multitasking on the rostrum is not the best in the world so I rarely say anything. I try to avoid hitting anyone for all the reasons listed in this thread but most important to me is the fact that if you can not pass cleanly a slower driver then perhaps you're not that good a driver yourself. I take example from the best racers I have seen who never need to say anything. They just overtake everything on the track with no help from anyone.

Pushing cars out of the way is for people with poor manners in general not only on the track.

+1. I'm a middle of the pack kinda racer myself so I'm on both ends of this problem all the time. I tell the slower guys to hold their line and I will work around them, I feel that makes us better. I can usually see the fast guys comming up on me and try to be out of the way for them cause I would feel bad if I slipped and hit them. The big problem comes in when you have noobs that don't know what a line is, much less can hold one. It's those kinda racers that can frustrate you, but I we all started somewhere and have to learn the ropes. Punting people on purpose is just wrong.

It has nothing to do with that. Racing all over the world involves penalties for rough driving. There was quite a lot of them handed out this past F1 season.

For the record, I don't race oval, I don't watch oval racing. I much prefer road course.

Where do you race? one meeting every now and then at Bedworth certainly doesn't give you carte blanche to give advice on racing at all.
Can't see your results popping up in any of the bigger championships at any time.

Yes rubbing is racing and there is everyone that's had or watched a good contest like that on the track... but no one in their right mind condones blatant, deliberate crashing into other people, regardless of the situation or provocation...

As for looking at Plato and Neal... both are considered some of the dirtiest drivers ever to handle a steering wheel, which is why they are basically marooned in BTCC... the only racing series that will put up with their crap... in fact Matt Neal couldn't even land a drive for a couple of years because most teams openly admitted they couldn't afford the panel damage
