Soooo... it is possible a flag worker called in the wrong car number?

Doesn't seem like a big deal to me, unless it happened repeatedly during your visit?

Maybe the Porsche guy called you in for saying goodbye to him?

Black flagged for thupercharger. And rightly so.




Also, if this kind of driving would be worthy of a black flag (2 or 4 wheels off etc) we'd have no cars left after 3 laps on most local trackdays.

I was thinking the same thing.

I've been to dozens of events at NHIS 'crewing' for a friend and have seen few flags thrown for truly juvenile behavior.

So because he slid a little in one turn and put 2 tires off he was black flagged? Is a little slide like that really enough to get you called in? Seemed minor to me?

I got black flagged at a PCA event because "tires were making too much noise and car was leaning excessively." 25f bone stock IS300 on stock rubber. I think some corner workers are compelled to function as lifeguards HPDEs - keeping drivers out of danger.

I hear Cota is strict as he'll in general. It does not surprise me given the level of racing it sees there.

I corner worked enough times at TWS to get real familiar with the corner working regulars... A lot of the personnel are guys that LIVE TO DO THIS and have been corner working for 20+ years and can easily become over zealous in their job description.

It was always PCA events I worked though, so maybe just a PCA thing.

If you aren't blackflagging someone every lap, then you MUST be missing something.

Looked like that guy was chewing gum and driving!! SHOT! That guy over there just squeaked his tires!! SHOT!

Did he go 1 wheel off? SHOT!!!
