An odd question to all you flaggies and marshalls that hang around here.

Exactly when is it safe to go on to the track?

I always though that if the SC boards and yellows were waved it would be OK to race out and grab a bit of plastic or a busted mirror off the track.

But now these clowns are flying around at warp speed under yellow to get back onto the queue, I don't think I'd ever venture over the barriers..........

I assume you are referring to Supercars - Any official should only enter onto the track after approval granted by race control. Race control has the car tracker system showing where every vehicle is and in this modern era of electronic coverage the cameras can be utilised to check things.

In other events where the tracker may not be available race control calls the shots once they are sure where cars are by referring to the timing monitor which can indicate sectors plus doing a progressive radio check with all points.

Even then you can get caught out when somebody parked well off the track in a safe position decides that the malady has resolved itself and they can re enter the track,often without requesting permission from the nearest post and sometimes very unexpectedly.

Like old timers reply, Race control dictates when we can go onto the track.
Some times they will allow a Marshall to go and remove an item , once the "train" has passed, under safety car control.

Unless the track is open , between events, the course car goes around with its green lights on, track is open, red lights track is closed, event due to start.

We do not go out unless race control approves it.

cheers

Five talking points - ITM Auckland SuperSprint

this one was the most interesting i thought. MS refereed to sort of suggesting Jamie may have gone slow to hold Scott up

Safety Car, scrambled

As well as the time it took for the SC to identify it was Whincup and not leader van Gisbergen approaching, and hence change its lights from yellow to green to let him through, there was an additional delay of almost 7s between the green and Whincup accelerating by.

An additional benefit of introducing minimum sector times when the safety car is deployed would make such mistakes mute.
