Also, the SR-71 video on Page 2 is very cool.

follow the right guardrail and at the 22sec mark there's something red on the track side of the Armco looks almost like a person, flagman maybe???

a gaggle of guys in red jackets and perhaps a cone or the jersey barracade is painted at the end but I don't see a flag

don't they have radios in F2?

he was lucky not to lose his ride turning on and off the grass in that weather

Damn, I wouldn’t have missed that at 30mph, let alone 150!

I think Indy racers don’t either. The rain sure makes it gnarly...watching all those rooster-tails was awesome. Grand Prix must be terrifying at times.

I think you found it.
Red flag, and this guy didn’t see it.
Everybody else was stopping.

I’m guessing F2 doesn’t have the in-car warning lights like F-1 and Indycar do.

Doesn’t look like wet tires either, but hard to tell.
