I didn't watch the iRacing stream Gabe was in. Is this a reference to what happened?
There's a mod I'm looking to try out for NFS: Shift, still my favorite racing game on PC for its incredible driver's seat view and immersion, next time I set aside an evening for it. This purports to fix some of the chaos on Turn 1 by actually putting AI cars in qualifying order, with the fastest drivers who will be your only real competition up front where they belong instead of trying to pass other cars in that corner.
It's a reference to most online racing, specially in simulators; where people will push as hard as possible into turn 1, with no regard to tyre temps, track condition or their fellow drivers, which almost always ends up in a huge pileup in rookie races. "Monza T1" is a popular meme in racing communities because of this.
