Members Involved: @Mevans44 and @Mearcat
Description:
Mearcat made a mistake running over the exit kerbs of the penultimate corner that compromised his speed heading into the start finish straight.
Matt Evans (@Mevans44) got a better exit and therefore increased speed onto the straight. Instead of maneuvering around Mearcat Matt Evans remains behind and hits the rear of Mearcat pushing his car into a multiple spin and collision with the wall.

Did the Driver wait to give back any positions required: No
Evidence:

@Mevans44 > Car #43 - Second half of video

"Hi Sarv, It was a completely unintentional contact. I was holding my car to the right and expected him to move left as I closed in. As we started to straighten he also came to the right with me meaning our cars touched. I did not lift as I closed because I wanted to get the best run on to the straight but I did not expect him to follow me to right straight away. Hence we touched, I can only apologise to him. I had nearly overtaken him the lap before and had a half spin into the wall. I caught him again within a lap and a half, hence I did not expect such an early aggressive defense because the run he was getting on to the straight was so much worse than mine. As I say all I can do is apologise, there was certainly no intent to touch his car."
