I remember this incident, although it didn't actually stop a race (as it had already been stopped) it certainly put the next races back and I seem to remember with shorter times/laps ?

Not a race stoppage but there was another time at Kirkistown where a light aircraft landed on the back straight, taxied down and parked on the grass on the inside of the hairpin. I believe it was actually expected though.

Great stuff - needed some entertaining reading to round the week off. I remember two of the ones mentioned so far, at which I was present - the plane landing at Cadwell and the cars coming down to the paddock at Mallory while the race forming up lap came through the Esses!

There was also the time when the start of a race meeting had to be delayed at Silverstone due to sheep on the track. I haven't been to Loton for a while but deer getting onto the course was always a danger there. I was nearly run over by one in the paddock one time - it was in a severe panic, presumably surprised at loads of people and vehicles in its normally quiet stamping ground!

Ah that reminds me - they used to have to stop hill climbs at Wiscombe while the pheasants moved across the track at feeding time!

Saddest thing I have seen is a Helicopter landing on the main straight of Oran Park NSW Australia...following cancellation of a meeting due to an on track death :-(

Some years ago at the Phoneix Park in Dublin there was a race stoppage when an somebody was moving about at the start finish line wearing a red shirt. The person on the first flag post a few hundred meters away put out their red flag.....

As Specialists we are very aware of that one - some circuits are more vulnerable than others depending on the way the catch fencing is designed. Before Snetterton had it's fencing on the pit wall we were always asking people in red clothing to either leave the pit wall or cover up or change to another colour........ bad news for Ferrarri!

An ironic one this morning on a bike trackday, going into Edwinas a Trainee rides into the back of his Instructor, putting them both on the ground and bringing out the red flags and an Ambulance.

New to this thread so maybe covering old ground;
Drove to Silverstone for a meeting and was surprised by the number of ;race cars' going the other way. On arrival turned a way as the whole meeting had been cancelled, it was sponsored by The Lords Taverners, and Princes Di was their patron. It was the day she died in Paris.

I went to a car boot sale that day. It wasn’t cancelled. Different patron presumably.

On the day of her funeral all British motorsport was called off. It was a Saturday though, so racing could go ahead on Sunday. The BTCC had to have a different quali format that weekend, with fastest laps from the first race deciding the grid for the second

I was running an A&D kart race at Combe,.plus there was a track day on the maim circuit. You've no idea the vitriol and hatred we received. But it soon blew over.

Did someone already mention the 2016 edition of the Nurburgring 24 hours which was redflagged due to a hail storm?
