Something possibly worth exploring for the clubs using Code 60.

The code works exceptionally well in qualifying and saves a lot of time. In a race situation it is unlikely to ever work satisfactorily as there is always a chance for competitors to gain an uncontrolled amount of time. Yes there are always competitors that benefit or lose out from a safety car, but the effect is generally known and controlled if race control follow the safety car procedure properly (which can take a lot of time!).

For events like CSCC where the racing is non-championship, Code 60 has more scope for working. For highly competitive race series like the national Formula Ford championship, code 60 will only cause disputes and problems.
Agree. From memory Fun Cup competitors and their pit crews are in radio contact with Race Control. (Or other way round!) I did SC for one of their enduros and was impressed how useful it was. But as you say, there is a cost.....
