does the "other" pit entry get used at non-VASC events?

I mean, if they're that worried about cars cutting across it, put another sandtrap in.

It's not like there's a shortage of sand out there.

There was one incident out of 78-odd pit entrances during the two races on the weekend, is it really much of an issue?

I think Moffat only just hung onto it on the way into pits at one stage after being tagged.

Not really but when theres a perfectly good run off sweeping pit entry why not use that instead of the current one which creates dramas at time for entry straight after the corner!

if safety is paramount, then why not. FIA is so big on Driver safety , then surely it should be changed.
One or two incidents are one or two too many

The current pitlane entry is safer as the entry speed is slower

The only thing causing the incident/s is either the driver in front not indicating they are entering the pits, or the driver behind not paying enough attention to what the car infront is doing.

Is that the only reason ? Why not chicane it then it speed limit it. Its much safer than the 90 degree turn then the turn right into the pits. Its Crap IMHO

Didn't V8's under the Wiggle put a jihad on the West Aussie round a few years ago and force the WASCC and the WA Govt to cough up big bucks to change the circuit/pit area for "safety reasons?"
The threat was to take the WA round off them.

Now it seems that before the V8's were allowed back the Wiggle and his mates would have to of approved the changes. If that is the case, the ball is back in Supercars court... they want changes, the they pay!

Agreed , it's the drivers responsibility. Under current legislation, all race circuits, permanent or temporary are classified as "work places".
So, the organizers have a duty of care to ensure it is safe.

Yes the disclaimer "Motorsport is Dangerous" but talk to insurers and WorkPlace Health and Safety, and yes it s a work place , whether you employed by Supercars or a volunteer.

So worst case , coroners court , etc etc
