    Should there be a checkered flag at the end of each class that finishes (maybe by differant colors)?

    Yes---It gives the fans an opportunity to see the winner close up.. and the driver(s) the opportunity to see the fans reaction (waving/clapping) since it is too noisy to hear it.

    Do you mean as the winner of each class crosses the finish line?

    If so ask Curtis Morris of Team Yahoo.

    It m akes sense to me.

    As long as it is DISCERNABLE as to which class has finished ( somthin' Readable ) It will be a tuff sell , 'cause it could be confusing.......... There is nothing more important
    on the course like the flags, no dis. just that consentration is elsewhere. However, for the Spectator aspect, it is the BREAD & BUTTER ;....... again if it is Dis-Cernable from the course so as not to cause a false finish.. IT would help to show the class' much better. That's All....................................

    How about a flag and a colored card that reflects the class so there is no confusion.
