Anyone know if any of the manufacturers make a bright orange (international
orange) glove? I just heard that the Arizona Region is lumping ALL the
open-wheel cars into a single run group (due to decreased car counts - in
all classes - and I am hearing grumbling from drivers about the Region not
being as "friendly" as it has been in the past) and I want to get a pair of
bright orange gloves so that when I point an FA, FC or FM car by they can
clearly see my glove and what side I want it passing me on.
Other local Sanctions do not appear to be having these issues of decreased
fields. I helped up in the starters stand at ASRA this past weekend. They
had what looked like 50+ cars on the grid for a 30-minute sprint race and
had over 40 cars run the 2 hour Enduro at the end of the day. One of the
drivers said the ASRA sprint field had more cars then showed up for the
last SCCA Regional.
I'm not running the SCCA Regional this weekend, but I am going to go out
and see how it looks. Hopefully the doomsayers are wrong.
