Hey SSS, since you are the man in the tower. Any idea how many spinners? The car I crew on spun twice and there were many more. So many they ran out of stickers, or as my Canadians call decos?

I had a completely different mental picture in mind when I opened this thread.

When you spin on the salt/dirt, swap ends while proceeding down the track, you can go thru the lights backwards and it still counts.You get a sticker on your car and a Pin for your hat. Roadsters are the most proficient at this function. I have experience at this...

The yellow spin sticker comes from tech who inspects the car to see if they can find a reason for the spin. If you spin again, and present your car for inspection with a yellow sticker already on it. They are going to look very closely and maybe have a long talk with the driver.

Ah now I understand. Having only braced bikes I had no idea what you were talking about as most bikes would not have any bodywork left to put a sticker on if the spun!   grin

The yellow ones, in fact all of them are no badge of honor. The little red and white one we have was from inspection and the pins were sold by the Ladies Auxiliary as I remember. Never bought one and never wanted to. My son spun once at 180... It was not fun, we made a chissis adjustment and it never has again.

One of the fastest short wheelbase roadster of Sadd, Teague and Bentley never spun. A tribute to an excellant build and great driving....
