We’ve almost been operating for 3 years at Capital Karts and have long debated the use of the Blue Flag. For those that don’t know, a blue flag is shown to slower drivers to indicate them to move off the racing line for faster drivers to overtake.
In F1 the blue flag is compulsory but in karting it isn’t.
What do you guys think?
We assume faster, more experienced drivers would want the blue flag to be used but what about the customers who are there just to have fun? Would this disrupt their experience…
Also, what should happen if someone is to ignore the flag? Should they get a penalty, though strictly speaking it isn’t compulsory.
We’re asking around a few forums and would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on the matter.
