That's because we like to be safe. And other methods are not achieving that. If as drivers you can clearly demonstrate that we are safe without it, then we'll all be in favour of that. And after all, if we don't feel safe, then it delays us getting to you if you need us... Your call.

I'm for it too.

I see in short races it can lose you a significant chunk of race time. As can any neutralising the race, such as safety car, or even stopping a race. Localised yellows were all that was used in the past. This has changed because safety is considered more highly now, those 1:100 chances of something going wrong now have to be 1:10000 or less.

Nothing is ideal in these situations. This is OK.

If drivers properly obeyed yellow flags and "slowed down and prepared to stop" then there would be no need for a Code 60. However it's become acceptable for drivers to go full chat through yellow zones now, even setting PBs without punishment, because it's hard to judge what is too fast.

If people were responsible and took the safety of the marshals seriously, it would not be needed. A code 60 should also be quicker than a Safety Car because you can deploy and retract it quicker.

Just to add that our newly purchased GPS speedo cost about 30 from Amazon - its about the cheapest thing I've ever had to buy for racing......

Tested in road car and now wired up and ready for action in the race car - hope I'll only need it for pitlane speed limits....

Actual Incident:

Car hit a flag point and carried away the "protective" tyre barrier.
Incident covered by local yellows on two sectors, most drivers circulating and behaving themselves.
Marshals on one side of track working to restore barrier.
Rocket Scientist decides to do a practice start about 15 feet from my legs.
Radio report to CoC
Driver called up to the tower to face the music.
Driver apologised after being threatened with exclusion from the meeting.
