Bill's mention of race flags reminds me of watching a VOC half hour trial at Cadwell. A certain Mr Bob Butler (late of the North Staffs Section, now sunning himself in Oz) was in charge of starting and stopping. He was so engrossed in conversation he forgot to check the time. Suddenly, someone must have noticed time was up, and told Bob, he grabbed a flag and ran to the track side to wave it in front of the leading rider. Unfortunately, the flag didn't unfurl and the rider must have thought he was being attacked with a stick. The second rider didn't fair much better, Bob deftly unfurled the flag and waved ............... the Union Jack - the guy must have thought he was so slow they'd started the next race.
