Edit - you really do have to read the whole list of posts to even attempt to get a grasp on what happened. But the good thing, and amazing thing, was that nobody was seriously injured. Just a bunch of damaged egos and a crapload of $ down the drain.As someone that was in the middle of this mess and having reviewed many of the in car videos, I would like to make the following comments: As with all racing incidents, there are many causes and contributing events. Yes, in this case we can point to this person or that person may have contributed to the incident, but I think it is important that we focus on what was the primary reason for the incident – a late green flag. The first car to car contact was made BEFORE the green flag was displayed (confirmed by in car video) when the front of the pack checked up when the green flag was not given. With the starting conditions as they are at Road America, not being able to see the starter’s flag while climbing the hill at speed, why would you ever want to hold the green flag, partially with a high speed group of cars. This is not pro racing where we are running for great sums of money. If the start is ragged or out of line, so what – throw the green flag. If you are really upset with someone, black flag them or throw a yellow after the start, to regroup the field. Yes, again I admit that that were contributing factors and events, but if the green flag had been thrown at the normal time (even 5 seconds earlier), I believe there would still be 21 race cars racing next weekend instead of being repaired, if some of them are even repairable.
