terence should be qualifying in the top 10 on the gridterence should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Totally goes against track limit meaning.Its the BRDC F3 who allow such poor driving standards,unbelievable!!
So now exceeded track limits and the excuse will be ,Well,Hamilton does it all of the time,same as Brit F3,so why can't I?
Answer being,IT IS NOT PROPER DRIVING STANDARDS,The track limit is there for a reason and that reason is non negotiable.

Totally agree .
A lot of tracks used to have " Mini Rumble Strips " as the kerbs , which would unsettle the car and make it a good idea to keep within the limits .
It might cost a little bit of money , but would be self regulating and cut out any arguments .

The frustrating thing is that at “club level” they seem to enforce it more than at the so called higher end of the sport…surely this should be something that is enforced at every level AND at every corner?

Have you clerked at Whilton Mill yet? That's a challenge with big run offs for corporate that tend to be taken advantage of by the MSUK heroes.

Would have loved to have been in Race Control Dave.Dave Scott in one corner and the Belgian guy in the other.
But its making a mockery of the rules and regulations.Its also very surprising in a BRDC championship.Bit like one rule for those who respect limits and another for those who don't.
Odd thing is that on Friday 11 fastest times were disallowed because of track line infringements??

No, I only Clerk @ Race/ Hillclimb/Sprints but regularly visit Whilton Mill as the MSUK Steward, the problem there is the Blue Book says that the circuit has to be defined by white lines, no white lines, no exceeding track limits, happens @ GYG as well.

I dunno how they play the game there but before your fastest time is disallowed here you've been warned at least twice via the flag+your car#. Not a surprise then!

If they use that excuse, and get away with it, I think we shall soon see a few more people being put into hospital. The Verstappen incident was no accident but a carefully planned way of eliminating a rival.

Can't agree with that Bob.

Whatever else you think of him, I have always considered Hamilton to be a clean & fair driver. Cannot say that for Verstappen - he does come from a rather thuggish line & seems to have inherited all the traits!

Gratuitous provocation methinks… If Bob wants to keep this thread historical, what about Senna vs Prost?
I'm far away…
