After an opening round that saw eight minutes of penalties handed out to three of the top four drivers in RaceDepartment’s BMW M235i League, 21 of the 24 drivers who turned laps during the second event at Donnington Park last Wednesday were penalized again for minor track limit infractions.
Top driver Hany Al-Sabti joked about these absurd penalties when this issue first came to light, implying that at some point, the entire field would be penalized for minor track limits infractions.
The race itself was shorter than the combined total length of all these penalties. Crunching irrelevant numbers even further, all original six Van Halen albums are shorter than the 38 minutes in penalties enforced today.
