Sean Edwards Porsche 997 GT3 Video
I dont know if you folks watch the corner stations but these people relay very valuable information to the drivers. In this video you can see (you need to be looking for it) the corse workers doing there job. It is called F&C in the USA...flagging and communications. We communicate the track conditions and the condition of there cars to them with different flags.
If you have a minute check it out on Sean Edwards video.
3:19 a debris flag comes out from the corner station drivers right. The flag has yellow and orange stripes. This is to warn the driver of a solid or liquid on track. Usually this flag comes out at the station where the debris is but in this instance there are a few stationb before that display the flag.
3:35 A debris flag from the next station on drivers right.
3:37 and 3:40 a standing yellow flag comes out on drivers left. Standing yellow flags are for a car pulled over OFF the racing line. A waving yellow flag is for a car or cars spun, crashed or stopped ON the racing line. The car that tis yellow flag is desplayed for must pull behind the barriers because by the time Sean gets there it is not seen. You also can tell Sean is not flat out racing speed through this section because of the yellows.
3:43 we see a big line of speedy dry that runs until 3:50 drivers right. There was a fluid leak from the previous race and the workers put down some drying agent between races. The flage are to warn the drivers of the race surface not being 100%
3:51 no flag from the workers station on drivers right means green flag. Green flag is only displayed at the start/finish line and it is understood that if there is no flag at a corner station it is green flag racing.
