Monza 1000k stopped because of a fallen tree.

Pembrey a few years ago the marshall at post 5 sticks out a red flag at post 5 because he thought he heard the red flag warning buzzer. Other flag marshalls see the red at 5 & the reds go out around the circuit. Unfortunately it wasn't the red flag buzzer but a car alarm on a car parked behind post 5 - even more unfortunate it was the chief marshalls car !!

Of course, there is always the legendary "Gimli Glider" Incident of 1983.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gimli_glider

Of particular pride should be the paragraph near the end:

Quote:
A minor fire in the nose area was soon put out by racers and course workers on the ground who rushed over with fire extinguishers.
And here is a pictuire showing the cars stopped, with the aircraft in the background.

How about the race at Lydden that was stopped because a driver run himself over whilst attempting to put a small fire out and then the marshalls had to chase his car back down the hill!

A race at Silverstone had to be stopped because Syd could not get the Jaguar fire car to move. The jag had to be towed away.

A race at Silverstone had to be stopped before the end of the fist lap as Syd had a problem with the Jaguar fire car and could not get it away from the grid.

i watched this one unfold from the bottom of the hill. very scary!
And the car actually ended up in the tyres on the other side of the track.

We've been here before: http://tentenths.com/forum/showthrea...highlight=stop

Reasons there included: sheep, hogs and SNAKES on the track (not at the same time)
AND
The death of the King of the Belgians.
