Must admit I had to drive my VW Golf home from Santa Pod that same Sunday & we had monsoon rain whilst on the A14, we didn't have a safety car, no one crashed as we drove to the conditions.......
Safety gone mad as it was ridiculous to see cars changing tyres as soon as the Safety Car rolled in to the pits, surely that's got to be ironic to those in charge?
Agree. Although I wouldn't use the launch control on my 911 Turbo S in the rain.
A lot of things can go wrong when you are deploying 560hp in the rain with all wheel drive and Porsche launch control. With 900hp and rear wheel drive, I understand the concern regarding the launch. I don't understand the concern regarding laps 2-5.
