Lack of Care Approaching an Incident

This can be a very difficult situation to moderate. Lack of care generally corresponds with speed approaching an incident. It should be obvious from the replay whether or not a driver slowed down but much more difficult to ascertain the visibility of the yellow flags.

The key features to consider here are:

  • Was a yellow flag not seen or unclear/v small?
  • Was a very slow or stopped car visible?
  • Did the unexpected happen?
  • Did the driver slow down or modify his line to account for the incident?

Typical Scenarios:

Total Lack of Care: Penalty 3 Places

  1. The yellow flags were clearly visible. The cars and debris from the incident were clearly visible. The cars from the incident were either stationary or moving very slowly. The approaching driver made no attempt to slow down and contact was made with the cars from the incident.

Blatant Lack of Care: Penalty 2 Places

  1. The yellow flags were clearly visible. The cars and debris from the incident were clearly visible. The cars from the incident were moving or would clearly need to reset to continue. The approaching driver made no attempt to slow down and contact was made with the cars from the incident.

Simple Lack of Care: Penalty 1 Place

  1. The yellow flags were clearly visible. The approaching driver was unsighted because of circuit topography, other cars or bandwidth limitations (i.e. number of cars that are visible). The cars from the incident were moving or would clearly need to reset to continue. The approaching driver made no attempt to slow down and contact was made with the cars from the incident.

Marginal Lack of Care: Warning

  1. The yellow flags were clearly visible. The approaching driver was unsighted because of circuit topography, other cars or bandwidth limitations (i.e. number of cars that are visible). The cars from the incident were moving or would clearly need to reset to continue. The approaching driver slowed down but contact was made with the cars from the incident.

Avoidable Lack of Care: Typical Caution

  1. The yellow flags were difficult to see. The approaching driver was unsighted because of circuit topography, other cars or bandwidth limitations (i.e. number of cars that are visible). The cars from the incident were resetting or driving unpredictably. The approaching driver slowed down but contact was made with the cars from the incident.

No Lack of Care: No Penalty - Racing Incident

  1. The yellow flags were not visible. The approaching driver was unsighted because of circuit topography, other cars or bandwidth limitations (i.e. number of cars that are visible).
  2. The yellow flags were difficult to see. The approaching driver was unsighted because of circuit topography, other cars or bandwidth limitations (i.e. number of cars that are visible). The cars from the incident were resetting or driving unpredictably. The approaching driver slowed down appreciably but contact was made with the cars from the incident.
