Racer turns opponent’s side mirror during race, video goes viral

A video posted Monday of 5Club Miata driver James Rogers’ opening lap during a race at Silverstone has gone viral after the driver of the No. 4 car, Ben Short, twists Rogers’ mirror sideways while racing three-wide down Hangar Straight.

Call it unsportsmanlike, cheating or even downright dangerous, you can’t deny that – at those speeds – that’s impressive.

The incident takes place about 50 seconds into the video.
