    Spectator, we're not official media... (yet ;) )
    Ah Ok, I was wondering if you were the fat photographer in front of me on the other side of the fence. :p

    Mind you, he didn't half move quick when a Ginetta came plummeting backwards into the barrier in the last race :p

    Did anyone actually find out what caused the lights to stick on for the first race?

    Wow! We basically stood right by you then. We were waiting there for our lift home when that happened

    I'm kind of annoyed that nobody else picked up on Turkington jumping the start of race 2. He was already moving by the time the lights went out.

    I just had a look at it again, and maybe he didn't get penalised because he didn't cross the grid line before the lights turned off, like Vettel in Suzuka 2010.

    I didn't see it but most of them are 'creeping' before the lights go out anyway.

    @RevolvingPrawn You do realise the TV lights graphic is delayed anyway, right?


    I didn't find the start funny, I found it disappointing :p

    Delayed or not Chris, Turkington shot off the line before any of the other cars were even moving.

    Well I haven't seen the start properly yet, but is that not something to do with rear wheel drive?

    RWD cars do get a better getaway but Dave means Turkington started while the others didn't move at all.

    Yes it is mine.

    Thanks @mike96 :p

    EDIT: That start looks more like a creep to me, not a jump.

    Definite jump start to me still. Watch it at half speed and you'll see!

    Remember Alonso's jump start at Spain? When I saw that I was amazed that Charlie even picked up on it. Had Charlie been at the start of this race I'm pretty sure he would have given Turkington the pointing finger too :p
