I was watching the Magnificent Sevens race at Donington on Saturday when the Code 60 was implemented. I was shocked at how many drivers appeared through the chicane exit onto the pit straight obviously at full race pace, at least a minute after I saw the first flag shown, so they should have seen several flags down exhibition straight and at the chicane.........

However I did note that both flags on the pit straight that I could see were not waved, but held static - at least until the second or third offender when the pit wall marshal became rather more agitated with it........I think in the relatively low light conditions (it was after 6pm on a dull day, and with what sun there was in the drivers' eyes on the two straights) the purple flag, when stationary, does not stand out. The instruction says the flag should be waved until all drivers have clearly reduced speed. I think this needs stressing.

I did raise the point in our pre-race brief on Sunday.....

Oh and in the Mag 7 race, three drivers were penalised for speeding under the Code 60..........I'd have expected more.....
