Red Flags will NOT be used unless in very specific situations which are specified in the rule documents.

The unlucky Finn
Ah damn it, forgot to allocate. Can I still race in G1 since G2 is not organized? :) Btw "Welcome to the 11th race of the FSR 2012 World Trophy season at Germany!"

can i just ask why these things start at 1pm gmt. i remember the days it used to be 11? or was i dreaming that.

its just that by the time we finish its like 4pm (gmt+1) and in england the light switches off around 5...+ its cold. Since most of us are europeans, obviously people in europe are finishing later too.

surely more people want to do this thing earlier in the day? give them time in the afternoon to ... do stuff? anyone up for a vote? could it be moved to an earlier time if i get enough people?

It would be good as in Australia, I have to wait until 11pm to race.. or in my case tonight, watch.. but 11am for you would be much nicer as it would be 9pm which is better.. anyway there is very few Aussie drivers so i dont expect too much thought to go into this..

This year we just moved it to Saturday (which is better for the aussies, as they don't have to work/study next day) to give all the day for WC.[/quote]

And I do thank you for that!
