Hey, breaking news just in from testing. This weekend the ACO are testing double-file restarts for their debut at Le Mans. The ACOs research has found that fans find single-file restarts boring and they fall asleep 80 % of fans surveyed preferred double-file restarts. So double-file restarts will be introduced to spice up the show.

Well I applaud them, I think more and more race organisers are finding how unfashionable single-file restarts are. And how trendy and fantastic double-file restarts are, its all about spicing up the show and increasing the action well double-file restarts certainly achieve that.

Well I couldn't possibly comment on that ( Wink ), but the ACO will be testing double-file restarts in testing - as they've announced.

In know that's not real.

The aco and safety cars don't mix as they always screw them up by using 2 or 3 safety cars at a time. They get it so badly wrong its stupid. They just shoundnt do safety cars at all.

Thinking about it a bit more, it would generate the same amount of incident anyway. In a an hour and ten minute race fine but over 24 hours you need to save the car so they not going to race that anyway.

Double files restarts in f1 would be good.

With a track so long as LE MANS ! is there a need for a safety car other then to slow cars down in the rain !!!! If there is an accident then the only slowing of cars is .... before the accident.. passing .. and just after the accident ! this could be done by FLAGS /LIGHTS, the rest of the lap you don't need to drive at a slow speed !!!!
