    Apparently the driver was told to go on stand by (in other words not move) and........

  2. I'd like to see how he talked his way out of THAT one :rofl:.
  3. Just what did you expect from a BMW driver ??
  4. Oh dear.
  5. so what happens to that lead driver? Does he get compensated in any way?

    Or is it treated as a racing incident?
  6. I believe the lead driver gets to punch the pacecar drive in the face.
  7. at least :LOL:
  8. Nope, classed as a DNF and the race was restarted behind the safety car. So pretty much the guy in 2nd place at the time went on to win the race

  9. "Sorry mate, I didn't see y..."
  10. See, no head check :p
  11. Jeez, a crash like that would have needed the Safety Car!

    (Boom Boom!) :grin:
  12. did the bulldogs get their 2 points for the bad call made on the last 5 seconds of game against dragons? :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :mad: :mad:
  13. :LOL:

  15. no. That did get a free group session at the local knock-shop however.
  16. :LOL: My mistake
  17. cant expect too much from a bmw driver LOL He might have been color blind and thought the yellow flag was green.
  18. :LOL: you're a bad man.
  19. Heh, anyone want a new job driving a safety car? Must be able to do head checks, keep an eye on all the traffic and take instructions :) Something a motorcycle rider is very good at, yes?
