Event: Revolution Cup Split 1 - R3: Zolder - 5th Jun 2017
Members Involved: @jamesl91
Description: Jamesl91 spun in the formation lap at the second chicane and proceeded to rejoin the pack and overtake other drivers, in a possible dangerous way close on the inside of a turn. Drivers might still be weaving and do not expect to get overtaken during a formation lap and thus it might result in contact possibly ruining someone elses race. Especially in these tricky condition one should refrain from unexpected actions.

The rules state:
  • If you spin during the warm up procedure you must wait off the track until the whole field has come through and rejoin at the back. You must not re-take your position in the pack.

Evidence:
From 17:48 till 18:07 you can see the spin and the rejoin.

firstly, Sorry i misread the rules, i will go over them tomorrow. secondly, i didnt see anyone weaving infront of me and made sure i took my position as safely as possible. everyone was starting to get into 2x2 formation and there was enough space.

it wasnt intentional to break the rules as i am clean and fair in my racing, i just misread the rules, Sorry @t0daY and @Nighttiger

Normally, this incident would result in a 10-place grid penalty, due to the seriousness of the offence but, due to unforeseen circumstances, the stewards were unable to complete their duties in time for the subsequent race. As such, only a warning will be issued at this time with a stern reminder not to repeat the same mistake.

As a reminder to all drivers, as per our Starting Procedure rules:

If you spin during the warm up procedure you must wait off the track until the whole field has come through and rejoin at the back. You must not re-take your position in the pack.


Are you both happy to release this publicly? If one refuses the thread will stay hidden, please leave a reply in here.

I have no problems with this thread going public. My reasons for starting this thread were not specifically pointed to James personally but were about creating awareness.
