Yesterday’s practice for the IMSA round at Lime Rock park was briefly delayed by rain, leading to a red flag. During most race weekends, that would mean a quick break for teams to look over runs earlier in the day and a quiet track. On this particular occasion, however, an RV driver saw an opportunity to set a quick lap while the track was clear.
The unnamed driver somehow got their bus-sized RV onto the track, seemingly in the wrong direction. The driver only got their behemoth a few feet down the track before being stopped, pulled over, and arrested.
IMSA reporter John Dagys documented the attempt at a very questionable hot lap. A spokesperson from the track told him that the driver was arrested for reckless endangerment, ending his would-be qualifying run early. Nobody was hurt in the process, the track was not damaged, and racing resumed as scheduled earlier today. For the full story, check out this article from Road & Track.
