To clear up the red flag debate: if there's any doubt as to the condition of a driver and a medical unit has to attend, then a session will be stopped. If there's barrier damage, a session will be stopped. If there's considerable debris/oil/fluid down, a session will be stopped.

Oulton was pretty much a perfect storm in that respect.

Started 13th, moved to 12th on the first lap and stayed there until the red flag.
Was given a 5s penalty for being out of position on the grid, and so moved back to 18th for the restart.
Climbed to 15th - was then running in 14th for a few laps, before Sutton got ahead, so he finished in 15th.

Undoubtedly - I the Ginetta Junior red flag for example would have been handled with a safety car on a different day.

On a lighter note, this leaves the championship wide open and I can't wait for Knockhill.
Yes, Rowbottom, Butcher, Shedden and Morgan have all got a lot closer to the top two now. And while Hill didn't get on the podium, he did score in all three races for the first time since Thruxton.

It depends how damaged the barriers were in that Ginetta race. It looked like it could be cleared under a SC, but we’ll never know

Championship is getting closer. Rowbo has done a brilliant job with that car. We’ll see what more Butcher can do in a car he has at times struggled to get to grips. Shedden has been a bit unlucky, but really good work by Morgan, he’s really keeping a good score. And yes Hill floated under the radar a bit, but at least he got three decent results, his best since Thruxton
