They are cracking down on track limits. Worst was I think in last race was one car going really slowly and someone caught up with him at chicane. To avoid he had to go 4 wheels straight over sausage kerb.

my Caterham I think would have skidded along track in a crumpled heap if I did that Smile

bizarrely he managed to shed a big piece on straight then on next lap he collected his own bit - everybody else had missed it. Guess it didn't help he was left hand drive and was left side of bonnet sticking up

I left it to the Series Scrutineers to decide whether or not to pull them in for bodywork or mechanical issues. I think I would have requested a few black/orange flags be shown because of shedding bodywork. Something to remember for next year.

I think it was the penultimate lap the damage was incurred and with only about 10 cars left there was little risk for letting him finish.

Loads more photos on Facebook if anyone is interested:
