Everyone who has attended a track day will be able to relate to this video, mocking the over-enthusiastic poseurs who populate lapping days across the nation.

Much like the photographers lampooned in a previous video, these folks can be spotted their $100 motorcycle helmets that cost as much as their Nomex driving gloves. They’re never afraid to whip out the AIM data loggers and HeroCams, and are always ready to educate you on the merits of different R-Compound tires despite being unable to hold the steering wheel properly. These are folks inevitably get spanked by someone in a very low key econobox, and always ready to blame the equipment (like any good driver does).

For these track day heroes, who brag to their friends about “going racing” and are more concerned with playing to an imaginary audience than becoming good drivers, we salute you with this video that lampoons your showboating and inflated egos. Remember; you can never win a track day, but you can lose it all in one second.
