It's quite simple. Hang behind, wait for him to make a mistake or bump someone and pass him.

The announcer usually calls them out and makes them do a stop and go or let the driver they hacked go by.

in all honesty we have a great group at our thursday night club race that was getting a bit sloppy on the starts.... so on our open Sunday Practices we have been having starting clinic's.... get them all out there grid up and start...... run a few laps and re-grid do it again.... been working like a charm...

the moto...... whatever you do don't hit the car in front of you.....

Rules have been pretty consistent, bumping from the rear or hacking isn't tolerated and results in a stop and go (offline anywhere on track) or allowing the driver that was hit to pass, side to side contact during a pass is considered a racing incident and no penalty.

That is the best way to handle that situation, call the driver on the spot. Nothing is more effective than putting someone on the spot.

Let the race director deal with it. Maybe take the person aside and talk to them. Most of the time it can't be avoided. Just try and shake it off.

Having the announcer put the hack on the spot is a good idea too!!

You see, lettuce is a perishable item... like you two monkeys. You trade paint one more time, you so much as touch, I'm gonna Black Flag the two of you, and tear apart your racecars for three-hundred laps. Then, if you pass inspection and you put your cars back together, I might let you back into the race."
i know your quoting a movie, but that "inspection" sounds like a movie from the 70's starring Jan Micheal Vincent.

Agreed, its up to the person running the races to deal with it.
