1. #20619 (Jim Rogaski) Clarification of Yellow Flag Rules
Change 6.1.1.B. YELLOW FLAG (Solid Yellow)
STANDING YELLOW â€“ Take care, Danger, Slow Down, NO PASSING FROM THE FLAG until past the emergency area. WAVED â€“ Great Danger, Slow Down, be prepared to stop â€“ NO PASSING FROM THE FLAG until past the emergency area.
STANDING YELLOW â€“ You are approaching an incident where your and other's safety are at risk. The racing surface may be clear but there is immediate danger to you or others if you left the racing surface. Slow significantly and proceed thru the incident at a reduced speed. There is no passing from the flag until past the emergency incident.
WAVED â€“ You are approaching an incident that has great danger to you and others. The racing surface may be partially or completely blocked. Slow significantly and be prepared to stop. All efforts should be made to proceed through a Waving Yellow Flag in single file order. There is no passing from the flag until past the emergency incident.
The no passing zone starts at a perpendicular line across the track from the flag and ends at a perpendicular line across the track from the last component of the incident causing the yellow flag. The last component may be the car, driver, responding officials, other vehicles and/or large debris.
What Do You Think
1. #21912 (Frank Todaro) Contact Impound for Regional Racing
Thank you for your letter. Please see the response to letter #21994.
2. #21994 (Tyler Brown) Add an Impound Requirement for On Track Contact
The Club Racing Board has received quite a few letters over the past years expressing concern over the many incidents of car-to-car contact at our Club Racing events. The topic is also a common item on the many racing forums. The Club Racing Board is seeking comments on requiring mandatory impounding of any cars involved in a car-to-car contact. Should the driver and car be required to report to impound immediately after the session is over? If so, Stewards will investigate the contact and, if necessary, take action against the offending party. This would also be an opportunity for the parties involved in the contact to discuss it in a neutral environment.
