However, I can tell you in the SW US that even fairly small rainstorms can cause some pretty good flash flooding in the middle of a desert. Even bone dry soil can hold and absorb so much water at one time.
Because around the water is like Miami at times, except they don't get the zero 100 degree days. And when it rains it RAINS.

Racing Harz should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Your opinion to that?

The victim was ok I believe.

Changing gears a little bit but still sticking with Creventic, how is it remotely acceptable for a Motorsport governing body as big as Creventic to not enforce proper pit lane protection for all participating teams. Really, no clear sign of any knee pads, elbow pads, helmets or even balaclavas...and SHORTS on a hot pit lane to boot?! It seems to be a hot mess of haphazard nonsense and differing preferences on how "safety" is interpreted. A high visibility zipper-vest won't prevent you from getting a concussion, or having the flesh on your legs and face burned off. Running on a tight budget like a lot of competitors in Creventic do does not afford you the excuse to not furnish your pit-lane crew with proper protective equipment in such a dangerous environment as an active pit lane.

I agree on impact protection such as knee pads, but fire protection isn’t really required. Refuelling does not happen in the pit lane at Creventic events. They have separate shared pumps for those. It keeps costs much lower.

The refuelling setup is wonderful: there is literally a petrol station at the end of the pit lane. Pumps exactly like those at a roadside station. Cars pull up both sides, mechanics fill up, off they go. The amount is recorded and I assume the teams get a bill at the end of the event! The flow rate is also what you get at a roadside station so it can be very slow. Seeing growling, chuntering, low-slung GT3s idling at the pump is delightfully incongruous.

Pictures from a mad race: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmKVZ8dT

Aside from a damp warm-up, these pictures are largely of a dry race, taken between the start at 3pm and around 9pm when I went to sleep in the car (I was pretty tired after an overnight flight Thu/Fri).

That meant I missed the biblical downpour, or at least I missed the cars splashing around the track in it. My car was still rocked by the wind and the din of the rain was quite something.

When I went back to the grandstand at about 6am it was immediately obvious there was not going to be any racing. The pitlane was ankle deep. There were great brown puddles on the last turn and I could see that the lower part of the track away on the other side from the grandstand was totally under water. The last few pictures in the album are of that rather forlorn site.

Quite the adventure!

The Estoril 12H race on 28th March, announced only a week or so ago as the replacement for the Monza 12H, has been cancelled. Monza moved to July to replace Paul Ricard.

COTA have bumped Creventic off the mid-Nov date that was set aside for the 24H, in favour of the re-arranged MotoGP. To judge from the tone of Creventic's announcement on Twitter, they weren't informed and are understandably irritated about that.
