Can anyone explain what the real advantage to slipstreaming is? If all you get is a +1 bonus, it just moves you to an inside line and the player on the racing line gets to move first again in the next turn. The only advantages I can see are:

1) it guarantees you'll move at least as far as the bike in front (in other words, there is no chance to get left behind with them pulling away), and

2) if you pull up next to someone on a final straightaway it's just a straight up dice roll to see who goes further past a finish line.

I've thought about making a house rule where if the lead bike gets a double six (either by rolling or flipping) the bonus for the trailing bike becomes a +2 (basically the higher speed gives a greater draft like in the old Speed Circuit game).

Any insight would be appreciated.
