Racing Flags

No racing events without flags. It is therefore a MUST for every driver to be fully informed about it and, more importantly, to take it into account.

Yellow Flag

Attention danger ahead, drive carefully and with foresight.
Reduce speed slightly and be ready to brake. General no overtaking until the danger area is cleared by a green flag.

Red Flag

The training / qualification / race has to be canceled for an important reason
Give hand signals and thereby warn or alert the pursuers, reduce speed and drive the lap quickly to the end to leave the track. Of course, the red flag also means no overtaking.

Yellow and red striped Flag

Beware, the road is slippery!
It could be oil, gasoline, coolant, or other liquids on the route. This flag is also shown when it starts to rain. Adjust speed.

White Flag

Beware, there is a slow vehicle on the route.
Usually the ambulance.

Blue Flag

A faster vehicle is coming from behind.
Usually shown when lapping in races. Let the vehicle overtake.

Green Flag

Danger zone past, all previous flag signals canceled
Free ride. With a flying start, the green flag is waved at the height of the start-finish line. You may only overtake after you have passed the line!

Black Flag

Disqualification or defect vehicle
In addition to the black flag, the relevant start number is displayed. Disqualification of the driver concerned or a defect in the vehicle. Complete the lap quickly, without hindering anyone or leave the race track.

Black and white checkered Flag

The training / qualification / race or the session is over.
Bring the lap to an end quickly and leave the racetrack. DO NOT suddenly reduce your speed but drive at racing pace to the first corner - there may still be vehicles in the slipstream!
