Officials for the IndyCar Series are to begin deliberating whether or not a green-white-chequered flag system should be implemented for 2013 onwards.
The format, which has already been used in NASCAR for close to a decade, prevents races from being finished under yellow flag caution periods. The last two IndyCar events, and this year’s Indianapolis 500, all drew to a close under such circumstances.
The system would function as follows: should a race complete its scheduled distance under yellows, an extension will occur until the track is ready to go green again. Once it does, a white flag will be shown after one lap of racing to indicate the final tour. The race would then end as usual one lap after the white flag is shown, regardless of the number of extended laps.
Although the system would prevent races from finishing under yellows, the key issue is that drivers could find themselves running out of fuel in the event of an extended distance; IndyCar fuel loads are already marginal as drivers aim for a light car in the closing stages.
