Default Bathurst 12hr race @ Mt Panorama: Talk about a debris caution!

Just started watching the Bathurst 12 hour race on Ustream http://ustre.am/cl4b - apparently been raining pretty hard there. I don't have access to replay video, but it should be out on the web soon enough. The weight of the water and soft ground caused a tree on the inside of Forrest's Elbow to fall down on the track! ... Luckily no cars under it. Word is they have been stopped for 90 minutes now and just getting back underway.

Apparently there is video of the tree going down, should be available online in short order.

Wow, that's pretty crazy! Could've been really ugly if it had come down at the wrong time.

Not too long after that, there was a Mitsubishi (the one Eric Bana was co-driving) stopped in the middle of the track at the Cutting with electrical problems. Peter Hill was trying to restart it, and the corner workers were waving yellow flags with the potential for a safety car, with cars streaming past the disabled car on both sides. For some reason, the corner worker stopped waving the flag, and a fraction of a second later another car (a 2009 STI, for what it's worth) drove right up the back of the Mitsubishi, demolishing both of them. Neither driver was hurt but they may have incurred bruises when they both rode to the medical center in the same medical car.
