That's rarely life-threatening.
so 2 CRTs drafting down a straight a Prototype is flying past just as he comes up to them a CRT pulls out of the Slip Stream
31MPH will make a hell of a mess
Sorry, but I am just not seeing this as being a reality. What factory rider is going to not notice traffic in front of him? The rider pulling out of the slipstream would have to be doing something really extreme and irresponsible to even startle the faster rider.
I think the problem is not so much that there is a speed difference of 31mph but that there is a speed difference of 31mph at 200mph. At this speed it is more difficult to judge distances/timing of something moving differently to you.
