What happens in the event of an incident?
As with any form of motorsport, track days do carry a degree of risk and unfortunately incidents do happen.
You will be fully briefed by the organisers of the track with regards to what happens in the eventuality of an incident. Every circuit has qualiﬁed marshals and a medical team with full medical support are always present on track in the event that someone has been injured.
Track days are there for you to enjoy with fellow like minded petrolheads. Give respect on track to each other and you will minimise the chance of anything going wrong and also drive within your limits. itʼs not a race, itʼs a fun, safe day on track.
What happens if I get black ﬂagged on track?
You will be briefed regarding all of the flags in the drivers briefing. The marshals do not give out a black flag unless you are deemed to be driving dangerously, or there is something notably wrong with the car which they have seen whilst you are on track.
If it is to do with a mechanical defect then this should be fixed as soon as possible when the car has returned to the garage.
If in the instance the black flag is due to your erratic driving, a marshall will explain why you have been black flagged and a first warning will be given. If you are then given a further black flag again for erratic or dangerous driving your session will be over.
Black flags are not there to spoil your day, there are there to protect you and other drivers.
What happens if it rains?
Unfortunately we don’t have any control over the weather. We will always work to make sure an event goes ahead, no matter the weather. If it rains during your day, please be patient and take it slow as you adjust to the change in grip level.
