I've only been in one race (NJMP), so please take these comments from the perspective of my relative ignorance vis-a-vis: racing; I also don't know the track involved, so I'm _specifically_ ignorant in that area.
"Shooting a gap and being aggressive" - to which driver are you referring?
If i were in the camera car, I would not have attempted to pass the car with the wing at that time.
Earlier? yes. Later? dunno; but definitely not then.
And if I found myself in that position, I'd have given way - early.
Reviewing the whole 1:30 video:
As an initial overview, there's a line of 5 cars, in a pod, turning laps 30 minutes before the end of a 2-day endurance race. They seem to be keeping in order and working together.
First thing I see (after everybody passing the land yacht) is the pod approaching a slow-down corner, and the driver of the camera car gets inside the car with the wing, in a position I would never be in:
1. Blind spot
2. Front bumper looks to be ahead of the rear bumper of the wing car
3. No chance of passing on the inside
Wing driver keeps to the line. They're ahead, have been ahead, and havn't been significantly challenged (in the video). Wing driver goes to the apex, and gets through safely. Driver of the camera car runs over the curb on that corner, and gets bounced around a bit; I'm guessing they gave way to the inside more than dropping behind.
I'd have chosen differently.
If the wing car had _only_just_ passed camera car prior to the corner, what should camera car do? I think: yield the line.
Second thing I notice is the car with the wing (I'm wildly speculating now) showing the camera car how to hug the inside to set up a pass, but in a reasonable position. I see this for the next few corners where the pod slows down.
I _like_ where that driver puts their car. I'd follow them. I'd try to pass them, but I'd have confidence following them - they seem to make good choices.
The faster (BMW?) passes on the long straight, camera car moves to follow them, but not immediately. One car _significantly_ slows down on the right, and wing car moves to pass. Maybe a little wider than needed; but they're ahead, and clearly so.
1. Wing car deliberately and reasonably moves to the left trying to pass the slowing car on the right
2. Camera car is clearly behind, but as they accelerate moves into - yet again - a blind spot
3. Camera car moves to the left, but _not_ all the way to the left edge
4. Most importantly, camera car doesn't drop behind the leading wing car; I think that's the cause of the collision.
"Don't hit what you can see."
It's not clearly shown, but I'd be interested in which car had the advantage in a power-to-weight differential for passing.
Wing and camera seem really close - but there's only 1:30 of video. Camera is accelerating quickly following the BMW, faster than wing, but that may just be the part of the power band they're in - dunno.
If wing had the advantage, camera should have known it and given way.
If camera had a significant advantage, they should have pushed it earlier on the straight; they'd have been next to, or ahead of, wing car by the _beginning_ of the move to the center of the straight, in which case wing should give way. But they weren't - they waited too long. I think camera should give way because wing was still ahead.
Since they seem close, camera should still have avoided wing.
Though if I were wing, and (key to this) if I had seen camera's move, like rb, I'd certainly avoid contact.
