Has anybody ever compiled a list of tracks
 and their respective shutdown areas?


I do not believe anybody has done that,
and it would probably be a nice "project"
for somebody..................

In the meantime, someone can use google
earth to look at the few remaining tracks to
 get an estimate of the distances available.

I've started compiling a list of some of the tracks.  I hope to generate a spreadsheet showing how much distance is consumed if you wait a certain distance past the finish before starting to brake (obviously as a function of speed), and what kind of deceleration is required at that point to get slowed down enough to safely exit.  Summer is here though and I haven't done much the past couple of weeks.

I think ONE thing they could do would be have the racer be able to communicate with their crew WHILE they are racing..... maybe if someone YELLED in their ear.... the "tunnel" would disappear.... some simple Bluetooth communications... that would tells us that it wasn't a medical event at least... or at least that they can talk.... just a thought...... no?

I agree this could be a good “alarm system” - even if it is just an alarm of some type triggered by the finish line   

BUT it still may not be enough for all situations.  Aircraft with retractable landing gear have warning systems (usually a LOUD gear warning horn) designed to alert the pilot if they attempt to land gear up.  There have been several instances in investigations where the pilot responds that they couldn’t hear the controller in the tower telling them to go-around (not land) because they couldn’t hear them over the horn!

Tunnel vision type episodes are deadly in aviation too - and not just in the landing phase. 

We are putting together a second bike this year for my son.  He’s 19 and has ridden dirt bikes - not street bikes.  I’ve been working out how to train him up - how to build the experiences necessary for him to start racing safely and smartly.  And to make sure he knows that every run can be aborted and tried again - even if you have to wait another year.
