Rick Parfitt Jr definitely received two penalties but I don't recall why. He accepted them with good grace. I suspect that since they are timing penalties they perhaps won't show up on the TSL reports.

Maybe not for Brit GT.

They do usually report them - HSCC for example.

If the published results include a single 5sec penalty for each of the cars suggested above then the penalties seem to have made no difference to the result.

From the Lap chart the action must have been on lap 48 of 49. If so no signs of any penalties on that lap or 49 - although the McLaren was about 5 secs slower on the last lap but could have been traffic or simply backing off since it was a slightly slower lap than the Bentley anyway.

Were the penalties applied much later and so not reported in the timing for the day?

In truth I don't recall any penalties for that incident I was just assuming the OP was correct. Which is why I thought penalties would be unfair under the circs.

Definitely the Parfitt Bentley got two penalties, which on reflection may have been for contact. But that wasn't the Bentley in the clip.

The Parfitt car seems to have 2 additional "P" (Pit visit) entries in the lap chart. One for each driver (might be more - I did not check past lap 30).

That seems to have added not more that 10 seconds to the laps that they were doing a the time.

Could they be drive throughs?

ETA.

My mistake - read the wrong lines.

Added about 35 - 40 seconds each across 2 timed laps.

I was sitting in the McLaren safety car up at La Source when the three (Bentley, McLaren & Merc) came past us pretty well side by side at the top of the hill.

I must confess I was waiting for a radio call to come through not long after, it was a definite hold-your-breath moment!

The Parfitt/Morris Bentley penalties were firstly a 10s stop/go for turning De Haan's Lambo round on the opening lap, and a subsequent 1s stop-go for a short stop at the driver change. And then they had a puncture. All in all not the best of days for them!

one-two should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
So the premise of this latest exchange - that someone got a penalty for track limits - was entirely incorrect?
