Was s/he on cold tires just getting on to the track, or were they just behind you in traffic and eventually caught up? Fortunately, there looked to be a good amount of run-off room if necessary, and you were on your toes, so no one had their day ruined (except maybe their ego a little).
The spec 996 had been on the track and caught us, but they did come out late. They had maybe done a lap or two.

I don't think there was anything particularly risky there; we saw both the corvette and 911 coming and made room for them, and it was pretty obvious he was spinning right away. People screw up and go off track at track events, it happens. It wouldn't be fun if everyone drove single file and never messed up
