Back in April I suggested that SCCA and especially the SM drivers follow the Indycar rule that can be paraphrased as follows
 
DEFENDING you are driving defensively when you make your PROACTIVE move in anticipation of a passing attempt and commit to the line prior to the passing driver making his passing attempt
BLOCKING you are blocking if you make your REACTIVE move in response to the passing driver making his move

I like this definition; feels sporting.  Perhaps tricky to enforce, but certainly something to aspire to.

Thoughts?
