Thanks to crankandpiston contributor Omran we bring to you this great battle royal video of Omran and Umair from Lap57 battling it out in their K20 powered Honda Hot Rods…

Look out for Mark Hannaks wild ride after running through an oil down…warning flags at the actual scene might have helped.

Excuse the audio – Omran will have it fixed for the next round.

  1. I hadn’t actually got around to looking at Omran’s clip of his dice with Umair until this morning, but it makes interesting watching.

    Perhaps Mr Al Owais needs to take more care with his editing – the undertaking manoeuvre of Car 55, on Turn 2, by Car 38 (no names again!) shows a remarkable amount of green stuff under the car around the six-and-a-half minute mark!

    I think if I had been editing, I would have taken this bit out.

  2. Just to clarify matters, warning flags were ordered out on marshal posts 20 and 21 within 20 seconds of the problem being identified. With 4 laps to go, I did not think it appropriate to stop the race early as there was plenty of run-off area and very few cars were running so close to one another that the Slippery Surface Flags, and indeed the slipping cars, could not have been seen.

    That the flags were either not seen, or ignored, or forgotten about by the second and third time through the area, was evidenced by some drivers (no names, no pack drill) enjoying impromptu drifting sessions through the bowl all the way to the chequered flag!

    Some of the antics were worthy of Torville and Dean, and I can think of a few competitors, weight penalties aside, who would qualify easily for the World Figure Skating Championships.
