Moderator's Report

Lap 5: Bryce Allen/11th & Gareth Huges/10th

BA comes across GH approaching the 90 and takes an inside approach but what he didn't know was that GH has just recovered from an off at Big Bend, so GH's speed was greatly reduced entering the 90. This catches BA out and before he realised he was right on top of him and caught GH's rear right, sending them both off. BA took a voluntary SnG the next lap giving the place back to GH. Racing incident


Lap 9


Lap 11


Lap 12: John Gibbins/9th & Jimmy Vark/14th

JG is fast catching JV heading for the Speed Trap. JV brakes normally for Big Bend but JG leaves his braking till later than normal and doesn't brake hard enough and rear ends JV.


Lap 15: Dean Holloway/8th & Alan Paterson/17th

DH takes a lapping pass on AP to the left after the Loop, but he doesn't leave enough room and side swipes AP as he passes. AP is pushed off to the right hand grass but continues and rejoins.


Alan Paterson & Andy Short

AP has recovered after the incident above and keeps to the right side allowing AS to pass for the entry into the Speed Trap. But AP catches the grass and oversteers into the Speed Trap which collects AS. Racing incident.


Lap 17

  • Allan Paterson — Ignores SnG for SR on lap 15 — 15.000 seconds added


Richard Kings/17th & Rik Briant/2nd

RK spins it at the 90 and does half hearted power turn ending up facing the wrong way on the left hand side of the exit from the 90. He then moves it forward some more onto the track to wait for the rest of the (lapping) field to pass before he rejoins. The problem here is that RK is facing back towards the 90, after a while of waiting for the field to pass he reverses slightly but then he thinks he sees a gap and goes for the power turn only to over do it and end up facing back towards the grass again. RB, coming through the 90 sees this and slows in time to be able to pass round the outside of RK but RK continues and drives forward into RB. RB manages to continue without losing any places but with lost time. RK should've backed away from the track and re-positioned himself so avoiding having to do a power turn at the exit of a corner.


Sharon Cullen/7th & Simon Loynes/6th

SC is chasing SL through the Esses for position and may have has the speed to pass SL on the Front Straight but SL blocks SC by driving in the middle of the track. SL enters the Loop in the middle of the track while SC keeps a left hand line over the crest. SC brakes normally but is still too close to SL and runs into the rear left of SL. Both have to SR. No places were lost and SC takes the SnG giving the position back to SL. I've reduced the penalty to a warning because SC gave the place back to SL and for because SL was using blocking tacktics to maintain his track position.

SL does not SnG but is awarded a No Fault Shift R.


Lap 18: Dean Holloway/7th & Simon Loynes/6th

DH makes a solid pass on SL approaching the Loop but having past SL, DH moves over to the left for the entry line into the Loop and clips SL's front right. Luckily SL managed to control it and kept going.

Dean Holloway - Advice - Leave more room when passing and make sure you're completely past the other car before pulling back in.


John Gibbins/7th & Dean Holloway/6th

This time JG is fast catching DH heading for the Speed Trap. DH was up to full speed & brakes normally for Big Bend and so does JG who's close behind him but JG again doesn't brake hard enough or leave enough room and rear ends DH. Both have to SR.


Lap 23: Gareth Hughes/9th & others

GH loses it through Big Bend and spins off to the left hand grass, he then rejoins but spins again. The 3 cars behind to some pretty fancy fanning out around you. You were lucky and got away with this one without causing a big accident. I've reduced it to warning.


Lap 25: Gareth Hughes/12th & Simon Loynes/7th

GH had damaged his suspension 2 laps prior to this incident and had spun at almost every right hand corner 6 or 7 times over the next 2 laps. This last spin caused SL to run into the back of GH and others to take avoiding action.

If your car is so obviously damaged and it's causing a danger to other drivers, as it obviously had been for the last 2 laps, then it needs to be fixed or to retire yourself. Pick a safe place, make sure it's clear and Shift R then take the SnG for it. Much better to do that than the chaos your damaged spinning car was creating.


Jonathan Boughton/3rd & Dave Taylor/4th

JB had been chasing DT for several laps before getting very close through the Speed Trap before Big Bend. There were 2 backmarkers in front of DT visible to both drivers and they were going to block any further progress. JB behind, brakes later than normal and realising he's not going to make it tries to move to the right but can't avoid the collision with DT, DT ends up stranded across the ditch and has to SR to continue. DT claimed a no fault SR and could ignore the SnG.



Lap 27


Jonathan Boughton/3rd & Simon Loynes/7th

JB laps SL on the Back Straight after the Loop. JB passes far too close and clips SL sending him off the track. SL manages to hold on to it on the grass and rejoins unscathed. Leave more room when passing to account for wobbles and warp.


Lap 29: Dave Taylor/3rd & Dean Holloway/10th

DT runs wide into the entry of the Esses and clips the right hand haybales kicking the back end out and hitting the right hand Armco then ends up doing an anti clockwise 540 into the left side Armco. DT then bounces off the Armco and backwards across the track back onto the racing line where DH is flat out entering the 2nd part of the Esses & can't avoid hitting DT. Both drivers have to SR. I think that DT could have prevented this by stopping the car before it rolled back across the track and into DH.

Dave Taylor - Advice - Control your car after the spins and prevent it straying back onto the racing line.


Jimmy Vark/16th & Rik Foster/1st

JV spins on entry into the 90 and rejoins without looking and right in front of RF, the race leader. RF sees him and has to make a decision about which side to pass, he chooses right, but JV pulls over to the right into the path of RF, this gives the lead to Rik Briant.

  • Jimmy Varkpenalty — Bad rejoin — 3 places lost


BA thought he had another lap in which to take the SnG but the race ended on that lap so the time penalty takes it's place.

  • Dave Taylor — Missed SnG for SR/L30 — 15.000 seconds added
  • Greystreak — Missed SnG — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 31: Ian may have thought he had the chance to take the SnG later but the race finished on that lap, so the time penalty takes it's place.

  • Ian Jones — Ignored SnG — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 32: Simon Loynes & Ian Jones

SL goes to pass & lap IJ just before the exit of the Esses. SL is powering past IJ but SL doesn't allow for his car power sliding to the outside of the corner and he side swipes IJ knocking him into the Armco, which luckily saves IJ from going off, while SL spins off the track to the left. But behind Mike Cooper gets caught up in this and hits IJ.


  • Dave Taylor — Ignored SnG for SR/L30 — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 33: Mike Cooper & Others

MC can't avoid running into an incident ahead with 2 backmarkers at the end of the Esses. MC ends up on the left side grass apron of the Front Straight. MC then rejoins the track at a 90 degree angle and turns onto the racing line and is trying to get up to speed ASAP. Bryce Allen manages to slide round him, Jimmy Vark tried to move to the left of him but caught his left side, JV managed to carry on after spending some time on the grass. This collision sent MC into 360 in the middle of the track and then Alan Patterson ran into MC, AP had to SR. In this case, I'm sure Mike made sure it was clear before entering the circuit but the brow of hill after the Esses obscured any approaching cars plus the speed at this point on the circuit making it impossible to correctly judge if was safe to enter the track. MC would've been better to continue along the left hand grass apron gathering speed, checking his mirrors and then re-joining, staying off the racing line OR at a very dodgy push Mike could have continued with the 90 degree re-join but moved straight across onto the other side grass apron of the track, and done the same as above along that side before re-joining; it's most unlike Mike to make this sort of mistake.

  • Oilsealpenalty — Bad rejoin — 3 places lost


SL drove the whole race in the middle of the track, which is OK, if there's no one behind you! but when there is it is called blocking and this prevents and makes it dangerous for others to make any passing attempts, causing frustration and confusion to other drivers over which line he would take into the corners. In case you're not aware, this is not allowed, check the rules. When you have cars behind you choose whichever side of the track you feel is best for you, either is allowed, make the move, once and in plenty of time and stick to it.

  • simon loyneswarning — Persistant centre line driving


There were lots of spins and cars colliding because of them but they weren't offences, just racing incidents and not worthy of a mention in the rulings.
Check up on the rules! The Shift R limit has now been removed.

Shift R rule
There is no limit for Shift R's any longer. One driver took his 3rd and then retired, possibly thinking the 2 SR rule was still in force then again he could have retired out of sheer frustration.

Bad re-joins
There were a few bad re-joins in this race, some of them ending in tears for others. I feel that this is one of the worst offences, rear end shunts, side contact and other close battle contacts are bound to happen in racing, it's all part of it. But pulling out in front of other cars and taking them out is just crazy. I know sometimes it's difficult to see if it's clear and in the heat of the moment we forget and just want to get back onto the track but please take your time manouvre your car into a position so you can see the track properly, make it a sensible place with time to get up to speed or able to get off the racing line quickly and most importantly check that's it's clear before doing so.


A good race for the two leaders Rik Briant & Rik Foster. RF lead for the first 29 laps and was taken out by a bad rejoin, where RB took the lead. On the last lap RF was catching RB fast through the Speed Trap but on braking for Big Bend RF lost control and hit the left Armco and couldn't prevent himself from hitting RB's right rear, sending RB off. Racing incident.

I did this one first to get it out of the way, as these 2 drivers, you'll no doubt be glad to hear, have moved onto D5, good luck to them.


Lap 1: Jason Robinson & Jimmy Vark

JR powers past SL on the Front Straight up to the Loop on a right hand approach and brakes in time, as can be seen by his wheels locking up, but he still enters the Loop too fast just as JV is moving across to take the racing line for the corner. JR tries to pass on the inside but runs into JV's rear right wheel, sending JV off. JR spins off to the right and then slides back onto the track collecting AP & AS. In chat after the race JR stated that his brake pedal wasn't working properly due to a last minute re-calibration, JR SR's and continues but it looks like his brakes failed again at Big Bend - JR retires after this.


Bryce Allen & others

BA has to suddenly check his speed, on entry to the Loop to avoid running into CR in front, he swerves right and slides. Others behind get caught up in the accident. Racing Incident.


Lap 3: Jimmy Vark & Andy Short

JV goes for a pass on AS entering the 90. JV's passing move is good and had claimed the apex but JV is unable to control the car and keep a tight line on turn in and he slides out wide while AS continues to turn in, contact and AS goes off. Racing incident.

Moderator's Report

Congrats to Jonathan 'Maxim' Boughton with a fine drive in the Brab for the win and to Bryce Allen for making up so many lost places after first lap off to finish 2nd and to Ian Jones for his first podium finish with us.

Please please please... let me know if you are involved in any incidents by sending me your version of the events, with the lap number you were on, the place on the track, your opinion of the events with any mitigating circumstances and including a replay clip of it. Communication is everything yet still some drivers don't send them in, there were several incidents in this race that required a report, please do so - it's to your benefit.


Lap 1 - T1 - Bryce Allen & Jimmy Vark

BA runs wide into T1 and gets stuck to the Armco, BA correctly slows down but still continues along th Armco to the end where it lets go and he veers back into the corner (this is because BA had too much right lock and speed on, so when the Armco ended his car went where the front wheels were pointing!) to where the rest of the pack are trying to get through the chicane. This caused a bit chaos behind and SL behind can't avoid side swiping BA's car knocking BA into a spin over the tyres, SL continues on ok. BA should have accepted that rejoining the racing line at this point in the corner was going to be very dangerous and he could have tried to continue in a straight line and stopped at the end of the Armco and waited until it was clear to rejoin or continued slowly behind the tyres to the left and not taking any advantage by cutting the corner.

Racing incident


Lap 1 - T1 - Bryce Allen & Jimmy Vark

BA gets knocked back into the tyres but the back of his car pokes back out into the exit of the chicane where JV gets a warp contact which spins him with JV ending up in the middle of the track facing the wrong way. Meanwhile BA quickly gets out of the way by driving over the tyre in front of him where he gets jammed on it and has to Shift R to release himself.

Warp incident


Lap 1 - T1 - Jimmy Vark

JV waits while the rest of the pack fan out around him, which is working ok. With another car approaching JV must've got bored waiting and decides to reverse it hard into the outside Armco which bounces him back across the track and into the path of RK, there is contact but RK manages to continue, while JV is spun round to face the wrong way again.

Jimmy Vark - Advice - just wait until it's clear before going moving and then keep it under control.


Lap 1 - John Gibbins & Jimmy Vark

JG rear ends JV approaching T3 and JV has to Shift R, no fault SR claimed and given. JG's car was warping about like a very warpy thing and this led to the rear ending.

John Gibbins - rear ending - Warp incident


Lap 1 - T3 - Simon 'Galiesch Darksoul' Loynes & Dean Holloway

SL brakes too late and too little for Lap 1 and rear ends DH entering Turn 3. Both drivers had to Shift R, DH had a free one but both drivers did a SnG. I've increased this to a 3 place penalty because it's the first lap and more care needs to be taken.

Simon 'Galiesch Darksoul' Loynes - Rear ending - 3 Place penalty

  • simon loynespenalty — Rear ending D. Holloway — 3 places lost


Lap 2 - Peralta - J.Gibbons & Simon 'Galiesch Darksoul' Loynes

Massive warping going on with JG's car, blinking in and out. On this occasion he reappears to find SL right in front of him as they enter Peralta and a warp contact makes SL spin out.

Warp incident


Lap 2 - Hairpin - Dean Holloway & Gareth Huges

DH brakes too late, loses control and rear ends GH entering the Hairpin.

Dean Holloway - Rear ending - 2 Place penalty

  • Dean Hollowaypenalty — Rear ending G. Hughes — 2 places lost


Lap 3

  • Greystreak — Failing to Stop and Go — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 4 - Peralta - Sharon Cullen - Rail riding - Advice

In UKGPL we run the Intermediate damage model for a reason and that is to allow drivers to Shift R and continue on in the race. If we were to run in Pro damage then firstly running into the Armco would probably cause enough damage to end your race and secondly continuing to ride the Armco, as in this case would have resulted in further damage to the car, therefore if you do run into the Armco you must take deliberate steps to remove yourself from running along it. This means slowing down until the car comes off the Armco and NOT just keeping your foot down.


Lap 5 - John Gibbins - Retired

JG's car was suffering from terrible warp and was leaping about all over the shop making others drivers very nervous as he disappeared and then reappeared in front, behind or beside them.


Lap 7 - Hairpin - Simon 'Galiesch Darksoul' Loynes & Gareth Huges

SL rounds the Hairpin and is close behind GH who under acceleration spins the back out and slides, SL crashes into the back of GH's car. SL's engine blew and had to Shift R. GH waited for SL to recover and gave him the place, i'm guessing for the mistake GH made! Neither driver issued an incident report.

Racing incident


Lap 9 - Peralta - Bryce Allen & Ian Jones

IJ in 3rd place loses time after catching the grass approaching Peralta which lets the chasing Mike Cooper & BA get past. MC passes IJ OK but BA passes and moves back over across the front of IJ catching his right front wheel causing IJa momentary panic trying to hold line for the entry into Peralta.

Bryce Allen - Advice - give cars you're passing more room.


Lap 10 - T4 - Jimmy Vark & Andy Short

JV follows AS through the left then the right hander. On the exit AS puts a wheel on the grass and can't accelerate for fear of spinning it, JV behind gets caught out by it and rear ends AS.

Racing incident


Lap 10 - Hairpin - Jason 'Zak Blito' Robinson & Tim Brookes

Racing for position into the hairpin, TB gets alongside JR before the turn in but TB goes too deep and virtually stops in the middle of the corner where JR can't avoid hitting TB onto the Armco and has to Shift R. neither driver issued an incident report

Racing incident

Lap 15 - Esses - Sharon Cullen & Ian Jones - Esses

SC is chasing IJ and the pressure is beginning to show on IJ through the Hairpin and into the Esses. IJ loses it again at the last left of the Esses and runs out wide, SC sees the chance of pass and pokes the nose into the apex of the corner but IJ manages to regain control at the last second and moves back over toward the apex. SC & IJ contact, both spin out and lose a place to MC. Difficult one, IJ shouldn't have pulled back over onto the racing line and into the apex of the corner knowing that SC was there or there abouts, similarly SC was taking a big risk diving up the inside with the possibility of IJ recovering to the apex.

Racing incident


Lap 15 - Esses - Bryce Allen & Jason 'Zak Blito' Robinson

BA is fast catching JR on entry to T1, BA could have rightly expected JR to yield after the Chicane but JR didn't, this is also true on approach to the Hairpin but JR didn't yield and again after the Hairpin JR didn't and yet again on the straight before the Esses but JR still didn't yield. Now were into the Esses with BA close behind and JR is feeling the pressure and probably wishes he'd let BA pass earlier and slides out wide after the first right and loses speed, BA stays continually swapping sides to try and find a way past. Then the second right/left combo and JR slides out wide again after the right and BA moves out wide to the right. Entering the left JR is heading for the tyres as BA moves along side JR, JR has to correct to avoid hitting the tyres and his rear end moves over and nudges BA's front left, pushing BA off the circuit while JR continues unhindered. There are 2 wrongs here, firstly JR should have yielded much earlier as there were several opportunities to let BA pass and secondly BA's passing move and was asking for trouble with JR so close to the tyres and he got it.

Racing incident


Lap 16 - Tim Brookes

TB, a lap down, is being chased by 3 cars trying to lap him, but TB ignores the blue flags and continues to race them, he runs wide through the Esses and SC manages to get through but CR & DH are impeded for another half lap until he finally slides off the track at T4. TB does this again with NK on the next lap.


Lap 17 - T1 - Sharon Cullen

SC loses it entering the chicane and ends up behind the tyres on the right of the entrance. SC doesn't spend any time making sure it's clear before rejoining. CR's could be seen in the mirrors and heard approaching the chicane! Chris Rae was entering through T1 to the chicane and clearly visible in SC's mirrors before rejoining the track by driving through a gap in the tyres and keeping hard right to try and avoid CR. But CR had to take avoiding action and swerved out around SC and ended up having to cut the corner and go behind the left tyres to avoid the contact. SC might have missed seeing CR in the mirrors but even so SC should have repositioned the car to get a better view of any oncoming traffic or just waited a moment longer and listened for other cars. I've reduced the normal 3 place penalty to 2 places, because it is very difficult to see any oncoming cars from there and in the end there was no contact or loss of places but please take care in the future.

Sharon Cullen - Bad rejoin - 2 Place penalty


Lap 18 - T1 - Dean Holloway

The pass on Chris Rae into T1 was OK but then also passing TB was all too late and caught TB by surprise as you slid off the grass and towards him, where he was trying to continue to turn in for the corner. This caused him to take avoiding action and slide to the outside and into the Armco. That piece of track is really considered out of bounds for a late passing move as the cars ahead need all of the track to get through the corner. In this case there was no direct contact, so i've reduced the penalty to a Warning.


Lap 20 - Peralta - Sharon Cullen

SC rides the rails again through the last corner and crosses the S/F line to finish the race. I know that no one in UKGPL would intentionally slam into the Armco, it just happens when your racing, but once it has happened, you must remove yourself ASAP without taking advantage of the situation.

Moderator's Report

JB told me, in his incident report, that when viewing his replay he realised that he didn't have any Pit Lane Armco showing and they say honesty pays! But what JB hadn't realised was, he did in fact drive straight through where the Pit Lane Armco should have been, twice, during a Pit stop. So it was clearly visible to me anyway.


Lap 1 - T1 - Tim 'Y Lee Coyote' Brookes & Richard S Kings

TB moves to the right after getting blocked by the slower moving JG & RSK. TB keeps correcting his line, as he gains on RSK to his left but TB is being squeezed against the Pit lane barrier and does another correction to the left to avoid it. RSKs car was on a steady course but one that was continually moving to the right. TB could have held a straight line and would have easily missed the end of the Pit lane barrier! but TB corrects again and hits RSK. Both drivers were at fault for not holding their lines off the grid. Please take extra care off the grid.

Racing incident


Lap 2 - Kink - Simon 'Galiesch Darksoul' Loynes

SL leaves Leekoup with a SnG in mind for the SR from the lap before. But SL slows waaaaay too early and is wondering about like a lost thing in the middle of the Kink. This nearly caused a collision with RSK, who had to take avoiding action. SL was very cautious because the lap before, whilst trying to enter the pits he missed the entrance and removed a wheel on the Armco and he didn't want to do that again.

Advice - Always practice the Pit lane entry at the track you are about to race on.


Lap 3 - T2 - John 'Gibbo' Gibbins & Nick Pitt

JG follows NP through a very cautious approach to T1 and through to T2. NP, now approaching T2 NP brakes early and slows too much for T2. JG is caught out by this slow car and rear ends NP.

Racing incident


Lap 3 - T2 - Richard S Kings & John 'Gibbo' Gibbins

JG is involved in an incident in the middle of T2 with NP. Meanwhile RSK is approaching T2 and sees the bouncing cars ahead and tries to avoid it by going inside it but hits JG sending him off. RSK took a SnG for this but it wasn't needed.

Racing incident


Lap 8 - T2 - Jonathan 'Maxim' Boughton & Sharon Cullen

JB passes, backmarker SC between T1 & T2 but once past JB runs wide and gets a wheel on the dirt spinning him and SC has nowhere to go but into JB.

Racing incident


Lap 8 - Sunset - Gareth ' Valliesboy' Hughes & Brian Curran

GH comes up behind BC who had not long recovered from an off. Ahead GH can see BC let CR through at Jukskei, GH continues to chase CR and has to follow BC toward Sunset. BC was well down on racing speed entering the corner and slowed more than is usual, this caught GH out behind and GH read ended BC.

Racing incident


Lap 8 - Sunset - Mike Cooper

MC can't avoid the sideways car of GH in the middle of Sunset from the incident above and MC slams in to the side of GH.

Racing incident


Lap 11 - Clubhouse - John 'Gibbo' Gibbins & Brian Curran

JG follows BC towards Clubhouse and takes a normal turn in line, BC ahead straightens up to allow JG to pass on the inside. JG has to brake hard and correct to the left to avoid BC, JG makes it into the corner and heads for the apex when he comes across DT who was facing the wrong way on the inside trying to get off the track. JG corrects to the right just as BC on the outside spins off the kerbing and they collide.

Racing incident


Lap 13 - Esses - Jason 'Zak Blito' Robinson & Brian Curran

JR enters the Esses under Yellows and slows, through the Esses JR can see BC ahead on the racing line heading for Leeukop. JR accelerates normally towards the corner but is caught out by BCs car moving very slowly and rear ends BC. BC was in fact trying to let JR pass but it was misunderstood

Racing incident


Lap 15 - S/F - Brian Curran & Tim 'Y Lee Coyote' Brookes

BC runs wide through the Kink and launches himself up the steep banking opposite the Pits, he lands back on his wheels on the track and quickly gets off the circuit. BC then correctly accelerates, staying off the track along the left hand apron and gets upto 110 mph before slowly rejoining the track. Meanwhile TB is crossing the S/F line and crests the hill at 180 mph and TB checks his pitboard then looks back to find BC joining the track. TB had enough time to avoid making contact with BC but he couldn't have been paying enough attention at the time BC did everything about right but BC should have stayed on the apron for longer, even if it meant going as far down as T1 if this was the only way BC could ensure that he could properly see if it was clear to rejoin the track at the fastest part of the circuit with a hill obscuring his view. The normal 3 Place penalty is reduced to a Warning for getting it almost right and for TB not being alert enough to avoid it. I did not get an incident report from BC!!


Lap 18 - T1 - Andy Short

AS rejoins from the outside of T1 and pulls onto the track in the middle of the corner and turns across in front of NK. NK was clearly visible to AS before he pulled out. AS said that he misjudged the speed at which NK was approaching the turn. AS tries to get off the circuit as soon as he realises but it's too late. NK was very lucky because it was a full on collision but he virtually drive straight through ASs and continued on unscathed. I'm reducing the penalty to 2 places because AS misjudged it and he thought he could rejoin and get away in time.

  • Andy Shortpenalty — Bad rejoin — 2 places lost


Lap 20 - T1 - John 'Gibbo' Gibbins & Tim 'Y Lee Coyote' Brookes

TB is behind JG heading down the hill for T1, TB is surprised by JGs early braking point, this is JGs normal braking point! TB wasn't intending to try and pass here but he has to swerve right round JG and this turns into a reasonable pass under braking. TB is now entering this corner faster and on a different line than normal and he starts to lose control of the car as it starts sliding sideways. JG takes the normal racing line into T1 and tucks in behind TB but gets caught out by the slower than expected speed of TB and rear ends him. JG had lost the corner to TB and should have taken a wider line. I've reduced the normal 2 place penalty to a Warning because of TBs loss of control through the corner, it would have been reduced to a racing incident if JG had taken the correct wide line and still rear ended TB because he slid out wide into JGs path.

  • John 'Gibbo' Gibbinswarning — Rear ending T. Brookes — also, 1 place lost for penalty points


Lap 20 - Kink - Richard S Kings

RSK is approaching the Kink and sees Brian Curran spinning off track to the left. BC then spins back onto the track in front of RSK and they collide. RSK does 3 x 360s on the right hand grass, gathers it up, checks his mirrors and can see 2 Ferraris coming up behind before he pulls back onto the track but the, improved, 2 behind but still a limitation hides the Lotus of Simon 'Galiesch Darksoul' Loynes rounding the Kink and SL collides with RSK. RSK had to rejoin the track as the Pit entrance would have blocked him going any further, so he did everything ok, again RSK took a SnG for this where it wasn't needed.

Racing incident


Lap 21 - Kink - Simon 'Galiesch Darksoul' Loynes

SL is approaching the Kink, no Yellow flags seen, but halfway through the corner he realises that the Ferrari of BC is going slowly on the racing line. SL corrects to the right only to find the Eagle of RSK in his path. SL corrects again but can't avoid a side contact with RSK.

Moderator's Report

There were a great many lesser incidents so i'm only reporting on anything significant.


Lap 1 - Ian Jones & Gareth 'Valliesboy' Hughes

IJ brakes too late for Mirabeau and rear ends GH. GH loses 4 places because of this. Increased to 3 places because of Lap 1 carelessness.

  • Ian Jonespenalty — Rear ending Gareth 'Valliesboy' Hughes — 3 places lost


  • Ian Jones — Incomplete SnG — 3.000 seconds added


Lap 1 - Mirabeau - John Gibbins & Noel Kellett

JG is taken out and ends up facing the oncoming traffic on the outside of the corner. JG decides to do a spin turn with NK in clear view rounding the corner.


Lap 1 - Chicane - WW3 breaks out

Sharon Cullen, in 2nd place, follows DT through the tunnel, SC has to back off right on the jump which unsettled the car, lost control and ended up jammed in the hay partially blocking the Chicane. Only 2 of the following 17 cars managed to completely avoid the incident, well done to them. A number of following drivers didn't take any notice of the waved Yellow flags but it wouldn't have made any difference as the Chicane was totally blocked after the first half dozen cars had joined in. Then came the confusion of bouncing cars and SRs, there were too many and too frequent to easily count. So a special war time dispensation comes into force making it a free SR zone and call it a day at a that. I've noted who ignored the Yellow flags and will be paying special attention to these drivers in the future.


Lap 4 - Tabac - Noel Kellett & Alan Paterson

NK makes a very late move on AP into Tabac, NK had no overlap at all on AP before the turn in point but luckily for NK, AP saw this happening and stayed out wide just in case! The move nearly cme off but warp threw AP off into the Armco. NKs move was far too late. This is exactly the move that were trying to ram home to drivers! avoid coming from long way back and just stuffing it down the inside with no prior overlap and with warp the ever present unknown the result is virtually always the same and the outside car always ends up worse off. Reluctantly i'm going to reduce the penalty by 1 place because there was no actual contact as it was warp.

  • Noel Kellettpenalty — Overly ambitious overtake — 1 place lost


Lap 6 - Tabac - Gareth 'Valliesboy' Hughes & Noel Kellett

GH has just recovered and takes off for Tabac, when he starts this move there's nothing in his mirrors so he moves across to take the racing line for Tabac but GH is slow due to the recovery. Behind NK is approaching at racing speed and decides to go for an inside pass. NK was 3 cars lengths behind as GH starts his turn in for the corner. Once NK had started this move he was committed to it and he just rear ends GH at the apex, GH had to SR. NK had plenty of time to back out of this move when he first saw GH moving across to take the corner and is a copy of the incident above. But GH knew that NK was there and he should have made the connection and stayed out wide which contributed to the incident, so reduced by 1 place.

  • Noel Kellettpenalty — Overly ambitious passing move — 1 place lost


Lap 7 - Gazometres - Jason Crellin & Chris Rae

JC is chasing CR toward the hairpin and can see 2 cars ahead also entering approaching the corner but JC brakes later than normal, locks up and slides into CR pushing him into the hay. CR loses the place to JC. JC had the chance to give the place back to CR or take a SnG which might have reduced the penalty down 1 place.

  • Jason Crellinpenalty — Rear ending Chris Rae — 2 places lost


Lap 9 - Gazometres - John Gibbins & Gareth 'Valliesboy' Hughes

JG is following GH into the hairpin, JG brakes too late and loses control, JG moves right to avoid GH and pulls along side and side swipes GH into the hay. Late braking into the hairpin with a car in front is asking for trouble at this very difficult corner. Reduced to a 1 place penalty because GHs approach to the hairpin was slower than normal which attributed to it.

  • John 'Gibbo' Gibbinspenalty — Rear ending Gareth 'Valliesboy' Hughes — 1 place lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


Lap 10 - Station hairpin - Jason 'Blito' Robinson & Chris Rae

JR nudges the rear of CR and spins him to the outside, CR loses 3 places.

  • blitopenalty — Rear ending Chris Rae — 2 places lost


Lap 11 - Station hairpin - Ian Jones & Chris Rae

IJ accelerates at the wrong time and into the rear of CR turning in for the hairpin. CR loses 6 places.

If a driver hasn't followed Chris through this corner before, there's going to be some confusion as it looks like he's running wide and so the car behind goes for the inside pass only to find Chris turning back in as he's allowed to do. Chris doesn't use the steering hack, so he can't get round it by hugging the inside wall but instead has to first turn away from the corner and flick the back end out to get round. This is where it's important to know what the driver ahead does by following them to see their lines before attempting the pass.

  • Ian Jonespenalty — Rear ending Chris Rae — 2 places lost


Lap 12 - Station hairpin - Bryce Allen & Dean Holloway

BA follows DH towards the hairpin, DH brakes in the usual place but slows more than usual before starting the turn and BA behind nudges and spins DH. BA takes a SnG in the pits allowing DH to re-take the position.

  • Greystreakpenalty — Rear ending D. Holloway — 0 places lost


Lap 17 - Porter - Ian Jones & Jimmy Vark

IJ gets very close to JV through the right before Portier and warp takes over and rear ends JV. JV is pushed into the wall and damages his front left suspension. IJs engine blows and he has to SR. Following that close to the car in front increases the possibility of a warp contact happening. Check out the Recommended Driver Behaviour article under the heading of "Avoid close racing when it's not necessary".

Warp incident


Lap 18 - Tunnel - Jimmy Vark & Alan Paterson

JVs front suspension got damaged the previous lap from the above incident and the cars handling was poor, he limped round until he decides he had to SR to repair it. JV stops on top of the jump on the exit of the tunnel leading to the chicane! JV SRs and immediately sees AP in his mirrors. JV tries his best to get out of APs way but AP has to take avoiding action, loses control and hits the hay at the chicane. Another 7 cars now join this incident! Firstly JV had plenty of opportunity to stop anywhere else on the circuit rather than here to SR, i know it's difficult to find a good spot at Monaco. Secondly having SR'd and seen AP he should have immediately stopped and moved left to let AP through instead of trying to beat a passing car at racing speed, from a standing start, to the chicane. Reduced to 2 places because JV waited until it was clear to SR and also waited until was clear to pull away.

  • Jimmy Varkpenalty — Bad rejoin — 2 places lost


Lap 18 - Bryce Allen & Noel Kellett

There are 4 cars ahead of BA entering the Gazometres hairpin. BA doesn't make an allowance for the slower entry that's is bound to happen. BA rear ends NK. BA waited for NK to get going again, reduced by 1 place.

  • Greystreakpenalty — Rear ending Noel Kellett — 1 place lost


Lap 19

  • Ian Jones — 2 Shift-Rs on L17 — 30.000 seconds added

DH crests the jump before the chicane and slows for an incident he can see past the Chicane. GH behind doesn't see it and rear ends DH just after the chicane.

Racing incident


Lap 29 - Tabac - Jason Crellin & Bryce Allen

There's several cars strewn about after the chicane when JC approaches Tabac, he negotiates them ok and then goes for an inside pass on a recovering DH from the incident above. But JC can't see a recovering BA pulling away from the inside till it's too late and he nudges BA into the path of NK entering Tabac round the outside.

Racing incident


Lap 29 - Mirabeau - Tim 'Y lee coyote' Brookes & Richard S Kings

TB spins at the entry and ends up facing the wall on the inside of the corner. TB doesn't wait and spin turns it immediately even though he can't see if anything is coming round the corner. Richard S Kings rounds the corner and gets taken out by the move. There were 2 things that could have been done here, he could possibly have driven up onto the pavement and driven back round the corner to see if it's clear but that might have invoked a black flag for driving the circuit backwards! The thing to do in this situation was to just wait and listen until it sounds like it's all clear to move. Reduced to a warning as there was very little could be done.


Lap 30


Lap 30 - Sainte Devote - Jason Crellin & Dean Holloway

JC gets jammed in the hay at the Gazometres, DH comes through and passes JC. JC gets under way and nudges DH as he's trying to accelerate, no harm done here. JC continues to push DH as they approach Sainte Devote, JC is very close and moves slightly to the inside before the corner just as DH slows JC is accelerating and ends up nudging DHs rear right. I'm reducing the penalty to 1 place because DH did slow slightly earlier than normal but JC was too close to DH and couldn't have known where DH normally brakes anyway, as this was the first time he had followed DH through there.

  • Jason Crellinpenalty — Rear ending Dean Holloway — 1 place lost


Lap 30 - Station hairpin - Jimmy Vark & Andy Short

JV enters Mirabeau behind AS who's out wide in the corner. AS doesn't hasn't seen that JV is there as continues toward the Station hairpin. JV tries to pass AS on the outside and has to drive along the pavement to avoid AS. AS brakes for the hairpin but there's a rear end warp contact from JV and this pushes AS out wide. AS continues on a wide outside line through the hairpin, while JV continues to try and pass on a tight inside line but it wasn't tight enough and the combination of AS having to turn back in to the corner and JV not taking it tight enough results in JV nudging AS again into a spin. JV should have been more patient here and allowed AS to continue through the corner as AS had nowhere else to go. All rather unfortunate and unlucky here so a reduced penalty to a warning.

  • Jimmy Varkwarning — Rear ending Andy Short


Lap 30 - Gazometres - Jimmy Vark & Bryce Allen

JV follows BA into the Gazometres hairpin. BA slows a lot earlier than normal, JV then rapidly catches up to BA. There was a warp contact and BAs car gets pushed into a 360 and ends up on the outside of the corner just before the apex. Reduced to a warning because of BAs early braking and the warp.

  • Jimmy Varkwarning — Rear ending Bryce Allen


After the above, JVs stationary car is on the inside line before the corner, then seeing BA on the far outside, JV moves off to continue round the inside of the corner but BA then moves off but cuts the corner tight shutting the door in front of JV and BA gets nudged off again.

Racing incident


Lap 30 - S/F straight - Jason Crellin

JC approaches the Gazometres and sees Jimmy Vark stuck in the corner and so passes him for 4th place but JC has to take a last second SnG before crossing the S/F line. JC pulls in and quickly pulls out again in front of JV making sure he keeps the place. JCs SnG was not carried out correctly as his wheels didn't stop turning and this allowed JC to get out and cross the line in front of JV, so I'm adding 3 seconds to JCs SnG. JV crossed the line .6 of a second behind JC and this gives the place to JV.


Jason Crellin used the Armco at Tabac to get round the corner rather than slowing down and entering the corner correctly and did so 14 times during the race. If we were running in Pro damage, your car would not have survived and you would be out of the race.

  • Jason Crellinpenalty — Persistent hitting of barriers — 2 places lost

Moderator's Report

The standard of the driving, on the track, is improving, with everyone giving each other more space to be able to pass and get through the corners with no rear ending going on, good :-) BUT not all is well! there are a number of disparaging words that come to mind when describing bad re-joins. It's a matter of respect for the other drivers in the race. If you end up off the track, for whatever reason, it is not your given right to just muscle your way back on again. The same goes for doing spin turns, when trying to recover, no matter how pleased you may be with yourself with how good you are at them, if you do it in front of an oncoming car you're effectively saying sod you i don't care if it takes you out i need to get back into the race at any cost. These are the worst of all incidents, because they are nearly always avoidable. Its the driver that makes the conscious choice how they are going to perform it, it's no ones elses fault, that's why they carry the highest penalty. Things to remember to avoid a bad re-joins:

1 - If you've spun out, crashed or got knocked off, your first priority is to get out of the way.
2 - If you have to Shift-R and you have choice of where you can do it, before stopping, think about how your going to re-join the circuit and choose the best place and get out of the way, rather than just stopping immediately because it saves you some time.
3 - Spin turns are all part of the armoury of a good driver but there's a time and a place for them! it's not in the middle of a blind corner or over a crest where you can't see them coming and they can't see you parked up. Again, get out of the way and then think about the re-join.
4 - Once you're off the circuit, you stay off!! for as long as it takes until you're sure it's clear and safe to re-join the circuit.
5 - Get the car into a good position so you can see, use the look left and right views to improve it and just listen for a second or 2 before re-joining.
6 - Once you've got back on the track, it's your responsibility to divide up your time spent between getting going again and looking in the mirrors to see if you need to get out of the way until you're fully back up to racing speed again to prevent others having to take avoiding action.
7 - If your car is out of control and sliding, you must make a positive attempt at preventing it from straying back onto the circuit and taking out more cars.

Occasionally there are times when it's difficult to re-join safely and this will be reflected by a reduction of any penalty. But these bad re-joins have got to stop for the good of everyone. A little bit of thought, respect for others and PATIENCE.

Thank you, end of lecture.


Dave Taylor has obviously been practicing for this season and it shows with yet another win and clean race, nice one Dave. :o)


Lap 1 - Grid - Simon Loynes & Dean Holloway

SL drops the clutch and accelerates away from the line normally but then he changes down into neutral and then into reverse instead of the normal routine. DH behind tries his best to avoid SL but rear ends him. The mechanics reported aftwards that they suspected a loose driving nut to be the problem. ;o)

Racing incident

The cars behind this then try to avoid it but can't, so they go into show boating mode for the crowd. First up - A trio of Ferrari's do some very fancy twirling in the middle of the track, staying on their wheels and only get distracted from it when their reserve twirler, Blito, tries to join in. Well they're having none of it, they realise he's not yet ready for this level twirling and so they curtail their synchronised spinning, but only at the last second to let him through, getting even more applause from the crowd. Next up, it's the turn of the trio of Eagles to see what marks they can get for artistic interpretation, but it's painfully obvious to everyone, especially the judges, that they can't have practiced this particular move at all and make a real hash of it with all 3 of them landing upside down, well the crowd just looked away in embarrassment.

Practice Practice Practice ;o)


Lap 1 - Tarzan - Tim Brookes & Ian Jones

After the display from the Ferrari's and the less impressive Eagles, the race gets under way again. TB is on the outside approaching Tarzan. IJ sees a chance to gain a place and moves up on the inside for the pass. After the big crash there's always lots of confusion and extra care needs to be taken whilst drivers are trying to regain their composure and bearings. IJ should should have thought better of the pass at this time as he was coming from a long way back to only get some overlap just before the turn in point, will TB see him in time? IJ can just be seen in TBs mirrors coming up the inside but did he see him with all the confusion, if he did? he so should have stayed out wide instead he cuts across IJ taking them both out. Both divers are to blame for not being aware of what's going on around them at a difficult time in the race.

Racing incident


Lap 2 - Tarzan - Noel Kellett & Jason Robinson

NK runs wide and off at Tarzan, he re-joins just before the apex and moves over to the right, where JR is coming through the corner. There is warp contact between them but JR isn't affected by it. First off NK shouldn't get back on track until it's clear and won't impede anyone else also he took too much track to the right after he re-joined, where he should have stayed left giving room for JR before resuming on the racing line. Reduced by 1 place as there was warp involved.

  • Noel Kellettpenalty — Bad rejoin — 2 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Lap 4 - Pulleveld - Gareth Hughes & Co.

GH spun off the circuit and eventually rejoined by sliding back onto the track just before Panoramabocht where from 20 MPH he starts his recovery. GH could see cars approaching from behind in his mirrors but he continues on until he sees JR starting to go sideways behind him, then GH gets off the track and out of the way. But then and with another car in his mirrors approaching the corner, he ventures back onto the track again at the entry to the left right causing SL behind to slide out of control joining the other 2 cars affected by his re-join.


Lap 4 - Pulleveld - Chris Rae & Jason Robinson

JR has to correct to the right to miss GH who's just re-joining and JR loses some speed catching the slide and runs out wide. CR behind has a lot more speed and continues through the gap between GH & JR into the corner entry. CR keeps a tight left line knowing that JR is on his right but he catches the kerb which throws him out and into JR. JR had lost control before the corner entry and knew that CR was there and should have given CR more room, so a 50/50.

Racing incident


Lap 8 - S/F straight - Ian Jones & Simon Loynes

SL comes up behind a slower moving IJ and after seeing 2 other cars pass him to the right, SL moves to do the same thing. IJ had blown his engine coming down the S/F straight and he puts his arm up and lets 2 cars pass him, he then thinks it's clear behind and moves across to enter the pits but right in front of SL leaving him nowhere to go and rear end crash occurs, SL had to Shift R. This wasn't a deliberate or thoughtless move it's just a learning process, IJ had inadvertently blocked his view of the right side mirror with his arm and couldn't see SL coming up behind.

Racing incident


Lap 11 - Ian Jones

IJ did take a SnG directly after taking his SR so the time penalty must apply otherwise virtually no time was lost because of doing both at the same time.

  • Ian Jones — Failing to perform a valid Stop and Go after Shift-R — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 12 - Scheivlak - Tim Brookes & Chris Rae

TB loses it through Scheivlak and ends up facing the wrong way, on the racing line just after the apex. TB completes a spin turn just as CR rounds the corner, CR takes avoiding action and goes off the circuit. Rather than thinking of yourself in these situations and just doing a spin turn, where you can't see what's coming round the corner, although you could if the look left button had been used! you should always think of the other drivers first and move out the way ASAP. There was plenty of time to drive off the track to the left as your nearest point of safety, where the turning round could have taken place. Reduce by 1 place as was clear before TB started the spin turn.


Lap 13 - Scheivlak - Gareth Hughes & Co.

GH's engine has lost most of it's power at the start of the lap and he needs to SR. GH settles for the very short gap between Jan de Wyker & Scheivlak. GH SR's and pulls away with no cars in his mirrors and is immediately into the racing line where now there are 3 cars bearing down on him lining up for the corner where GH is doing approx. 30 MPH. CR takes a glancing blow of GH and slides off the circuit, TB reacts and also runs off the track only MC manages to control his car and makes up 3 places in the confusion. Reduced by 1 place as it was clear when GH SR'd and pulled away. GH had the opportunity to stop at a better place giving him more room and time to see any oncoming cars and when GH did move off, seeing the cars in his mirrors he should have got off the circuit ASAP but instead GH chose to continue.


Lap 20 - Left/right before Tunnel Oost - Sharron Cullen & Andy Short

SC misjudges the speed difference to AS, AS had just let 2 lapping cars pass him through the previous section and wasn't back up to speed, SC slightly loses control and starts to swap ends trying to slow mid corner and rear ends AS.

Racing incident


Lap 27 - Pulleveld - Jason Robinson & Ian Jones

JR loses the back end on entry, goes wide and off the circuit at the last right hander, he then re-joins just after the apex of the corner but right into the path of IJ, who is path is blocked and runs into the rear of JR which spins them both out. JR should have resisted the temptation to get back onto the track so quickly without regard for the consequences. The lesson here is that JR would have lost no more than 3 places from his own mistake if he'd just stayed off the track until the straight before re-joining but he ends up losing 6 places through impatience.

  • blitopenalty — Bad rejoin — 3 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Lap 27 - Scheivlak - Allan O'Brien & Noel Kellett

NK succumbs the relentless pressure of AO behind him on the last lap and runs wide through and spins out in front of AO at Scheivlak. AO has nowhere to go but through and past and he gets a side slap from NK as he spins out.

Moderator's Report

Lap 1 - T1 - Jimmy 'Aard'Vark & Jason Crellin

JV in 4th place and starting on the left hand side of the grid takes off in pursuit of NK in 2nd place ahead of him. JV moves out to the right of NK just where it starts to funnel in before the corner entry to where JC is moving left lining up for the first corner. There was a warp contact between them which spins JC and starts the T1 crash. JC starting from the right side of the grid was moving left as he had to for the corner entry and he backed off to let NK get through the corner ahead of him to his left. He did not expect JV to be there between them. This was caused by JV moving out to the middle and trying to go 3 wide into T1. We all know in real life this happens all the time cars moving about all over the track at the start but this isn't real life and we must drive within the limitations of GPLs reduced visibility. Reduced by 1 place because of warp.

  • Jimmy Varkpenalty — Side contact — 1 place lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


L1 - T1 - Richard Kings & Bob Wright

RSK Slows for the melee and finds a way through it, gets moving again but then immediately has to slow again. BW behind thought it was clear to carry on but gets caught out by RSK slowing again and runs in to the rear of him.

Racing incident.


Lap 2 - L'Eau Rouge - Bob Wright & Bryce 'Greystreak' Allen

BW finds himself up on the left side banking mid way through L'Eau Rouge and rejoins in front BA. BA sees BW rejoining and manages to slow enough to swerve round him but this distracts from seeing JB upside down in the middle of the track further through the corner and BA piles straight into JB. BA was in a dangerous position and had to SR to continue. Reduced by 1 place because of no contact.

  • Bob Wrightpenalty — Bad rejoin — 2 places lost


Lap 2 - L'Eau Rouge - Bob Wright & Jonathan 'Maxim' Boughton

JB passes a recovering BW at La Source. JB heads off for T1 thinking BW is behind him but out of his field of view but in fact they are side by side, JB has the natural line for the corner but BW on his right gets ahead just before the squeeze. Neither driver could see each other and now's not a good time to be using your look left/right buttons. As they enter squeeze BW, on the right, knows he's too far right off the racing line and has no way through the corner on his present line. This is where one or the other driver should have given way. The natural line through the corner brought JB and BW together and a warp contact throws them both off.

Moderator's Report

Lap 1 - T1 - Alan Patterson & Mike Cooper

AP gets off the line well but is caught out by the T1 slowing and bunching of cars and finds himself running up the inside of MC into T1, MC is turning in at that point and AP runs into the side of MC. I don't think AP was considering a pass but more like the rest of the cars slowed where he didn't, but it's L1 - T1 ! extra care needed.

  • Allan Patersonpenalty — Side contact with Mike Cooper — 2 places lost


Lap 1 - T1 - Andy Short & Richard Kings

RK sees an incident ahead and slows for it, behind AS also sees it and slows and as with RK keeping the car completely under control. RK momentarily gets going again and AS sees this and sets off with him but then RK immediately slows again, as the cars ahead are bouncing around. AS accidentally finds himself along side RK where they touch and RK gets spun and loses the place. Reduced to a warning due to the confusion of bouncing cars - take extra care for L1 - T1 incidents.

  • Andy Shortwarning — Side contact with Richard Kings


Lap 1 - T2 - Dave Taylor & Tim Brookes

DT follows NK to T2, NK's line was tight inside the racing line, too tight as it turns out and NK slows some more to correct his line and he hits the inside kerb bouncing him outwards. DT, behind, on the normal racing line for the corner sees this about to occur and he correctly slows and holds line to see what NK's doing. DT sees that NK's car is not going cause any further problems and he continues through the corner. TB behind is caught out by this change of speed and direction and he has to slow and change line but he over corrects and the rear end breaks out and he starts to slide sideways towards DT's rear end when warp took over and pushed DT's rear end round and eventually off the circuit. That's what happens in the first few corners of races and we must take account of it. Reduced by 1 place because of warp.


Lap 1 - Hairpin - Dean Holloway & Others

DH runs too deep into the hairpin and gets caught on the tyres, 3 cars behind can't avoid getting caught up in it.

Racing incident


Lap 1 - Hairpin + 2 - Dean Holloway & Maxim

DH's on the outside with JB on the inside as they start to take corner side by side, a warp throws DH off the track.

Warp incident


Lap 3 - T2 - Dean Holloway & Richard Kings

RK in front, slows a lot before entry and then catches the kerb and starts to slide sideways. DH behind could have expected RK to get through the corner quicker but either way RK had lost control which left DH nowhere to go.

Racing incident


Lap 3 - Hairpin - Tim Brookes & Richard Kings

RK is very slow through the entry to the hairpin and through the previous corners, when TB comes across him entering the hairpin, TB is caught out by the speed difference as RK slows too much and earlier than would be expected before the turn in point.

Racing incident


Lap 4 - Six Frères - Bryce Allen & Gareth 'Valliesboy' Hughes

VB loses it through the T2 and eventually ends up back in the middle of the track, where BA tries hard but can't avoid running into him.

Racing incident


Lap 4/5 - Alan Patterson & Jimmy Vark

AP impedes JV for several corners where AP must have been shown Blue flags. AP was almost letting JV through but not quite and this caused a lot of confusion for the lapping driver.

Caution - AP pay attention to the flags and to who's behind you.



  • Andy Short — Shift-R lap 5 — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 7 - Sanson - Richard Kings & Alan Patterson

AP is caught out by the speed difference to RK ahead braking for the turn. AP moves to the left but catches RK as he passes spinning RK 180.

Racing incident


Lap 8 - T2 - Jonathan 'Maxim' Boughton & Alan Patterson

JB follows backmarker AP through T1 and as they approach T2, JB is caught out by AP's early braking for the corner and rear ends him. JB has to SR.

Racing incident


Lap 8 - Six Freres - Dave Taylor & Richard Kings

RK had just recovered from a spin and was getting back up to speed when DT arrives at a much higher speed. DT gets caught out by a big speed difference between himself and RK, DT tries to avoid RK but rear ends him. RK should have kept further off the racing line until back up to speed.

Racing incident


Lap 11 - Hairpin - Jason Crellin & Andy Short

AS has been lapped and now it's the turn of JC to lap AS. As they approach the hairpin AS knows that JC is there and AS's intention is to let JC pass through the corner. AS starts off with a wide line through as JC takes a nice tight inside line but AS then turns back in quite tight through the corner and warp contact throws AS into the tyres on the outside.

Warp incident


Lap 15 - Hairpin - Jason Crellin & Simon "Galiesch Darksoul" Loynes

GD ahead is slow through the preceding 3 corners which puts JC behind really close. Approaching the hairpin, GD starts off his entry on the normal line and then moves across the track for a tight hairpin entry. JC behind had slowed early enough and changed sides to the inside. JC then locks up and hits the inside kerbing and then slides into the rear of GD as he's turning in, throwing GD into the tyres and losing a place. JC carries on through to take 3rd position. Although GD was much slower than normal through the preceding corners he was at normal racing speeds through the hairpin entry. JC misjudged his braking and should have taken more care to avoid the collision. Reduced by 1 place because JC lost control just before the incident.

  • Jason Crellinpenalty — Rear ending Simon "Galiesch Darksoul" Loynes — 1 place lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


Lap 17 - Beauval - Dean Holloway & Gareth Hughes

DH is trying to deal with a big fishtail out of the right hander after catching the inside kerb, VB rounds the corner behind and can clearly see that DH is struggling for control but VB keeps his foot to the floor regardless and chooses to pass DH on the left. DH is still in throws of veering from side to side across the track and as he veers across the track again VB 'T' bones him and causes DH's engine blows, VB spins and continues. DH could probably have saved it and VB could have avoided hitting DH. VB should have backed off to see what was going to happen as there was no safe way past DH until he had it back under control.


Lap 18 - Scierie - Noel Kellett & Simon "Galiesch Darksoul" Loynes

NK drafts past SL down the back straight and pulls along side SL to out brake him for an inside pass into the right hander. SL knew that NK was there but didn't allow for it by taking a wider line or conceding the corner, instead he takes the normal racing line through the corner and hits NK as he turns in. SL gets thrown to the outside onto the grass whilst NK carries on, NK slowed after the incident and let SL retake 5th position just before the S/F line and the end of the race. Reduced by 1 place as NK wouldn't have been able to hold a tight line through the corner allowing them both through.

Moderator's Report

L1 - Grid - Alan Patterson

AP selects 1st gear with the revs too high, lurches forward and gets a jump start, is black flagged and takes the SnG for it. When AP jumped forward this caused a warp contact with RK ahead and he too got Black flagged and also had to take a SnG.


L1 - T1 - Alan Patterson

AP from the back of the grid gets off the line eventually in last place and then gets a shifty on and finds himself gaining 3 places as the field slows for T1. AP's still in 4th gear as the braking point is passed and is rapidly gaining on SC ahead as the pack is turning into T1. AP has to swerve right to avoid hitting SC and runs into the inside pit wall, bounces off and veers across the track to the outside miraculously missing everyone.


L1 - Farm Straight - Jimmy Vark & Andy Short

JV catches the outside grass through Abbey, spins out and ends up facing the wall on the left a third of the way down the straight, with the rear half of his car still hanging out on the track. 7 cars pass JV's stricken car OK, as the natural line back after Abbey would miss him.... but enter AS making a pass on the inside of GD that ran wide through Abbey. AS passes GD on the inside. AS is alongside GD and pulling ahead of him, then he spots the rear half of JV's car in his path. AS couldn't move right as GD was there and so couldn't avoid hitting JV, AS had to SR. If JV had moved his car off the track completely, then this incident wouldn't have occurred but from JV's point of view he did the right thing and didn't attempt to move until the whole field had passed him, plus from JV's in car view, it appeared to him that his car was off the circuit.

Racing incident


L4 - Stowe - Richard Kings & Alan Patterson

AP is behind RK heading for Stowe. AP doesn't brake enough and finds himself heading straight for RK's rear end, so he moves right and then finds himself side by side with RK mid corner whilst still trying to slow the car down. AP's rear end slides out and shoves RK off the track, RK has to SR. Reduced by 1 place as i don't believe AP was going for the pass but just got the braking wrong.

  • Allan Patersonpenalty — Side contact with Richard Kings — 1 place lost


L4 - Stowe - Richard Kings & Alan Patterson

After the incident above, RK's upside down on the outside of the corner. RK SR's and appears directly in front of AP who's just getting going again. They touch and RK goes skywards again and this time lands behind the wall on the inside of the corner, RK has to SR again. Reduced by 2 places, 1 because you couldn't tell if it was clear to SR and 1 more because you came off worse both times. In future wait a reasonable time until you believe the cars that were there during the incident have moved off.


L6 - Copse/Maggotts - Galiesch Darksoul & Mike Cooper

GD behind MC, GD gets a good drive out of Copse and goes for an inside pass on MC before Maggotts. GD cuts back across in front of MC for the racing line before the left hander but his rear right wheel hit MC's front left wheel, removing it and sending MC off, where MC then retires.

  • simon loynespenalty — Side contact with Mike Cooper — 2 places lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


L14 - Stowe - Dave Taylor & Noel Kellett

DT is following NK through the corner when NK loses it and does a 360 mid corner, DT can't avoid running into him. Free SR claimed and given to DT.

Racing incident


L24 - Stowe - Sharon Cullen & Bryce Allen

BA goes for an outside pass for a position on SC through Stowe. SC keeps a good inside line but BA starts to squeeze SC against the apex. All might have been OK but there was a warp contact and it throws BA off the track, SC continues on unaffected. If you're attempting to go through a corner side by side, then you must leave room for the other driver to go through as well and always be mindful of the ever present warp contact. Reduced because SC wasn't affected by it and there was warp involved.

Moderator's Report

Lap 2 - Lavant - Valliesboy & Jason Crellin

JC, in his Lotus, was catching VB, in his Cooper, round the back part of the circuit. JC saw a chance to pass VB on the left, down the Lavant Straight, just before the final wiggle into Woodcote. JC had a decent overlap on VB and VB should have given JC some more room to pass. On the other hand this pass may have worked if JC had stuck to a straight left side pass on VB but JC was moving around quite a bit and it was his car that moved across more, side contact occurred. Both drivers should have given each other enough room to pass in to the corner, they both ended up upside down on the outside of Woodcote.

Racing incident


Lap 4


Lap 23 - Fordwater - Noel Kellett & Jimmy Vark

NK, leading the race, when his monitor went blank as he entered the turn, NK coasted blind off of the track until he ran into the wall. With NK's monitor still blank he attempted to see if it would come back to life by driving around, it didn't work and his blind driving ended up with him parking his car on the exit of Fordwater, where SC just missed him but JV couldn't avoid the collision, which brought NK's monitor back to life. It was initially through no fault of NK that his monitor went blank but I have to award a penalty here as NK chose to do some blind driving which ended up causing an incident. Reduced to a warning as it was not intentional but from much frustration and a misguided attempt to get back into the race.

  • Noel Kellettwarning — Bad rejoin — also, 2 places lost for penalty points

  • Greystreak — Shift-R on last lap (no chance to stop and go) — 15.000 seconds added
