Race report by Ciddi Amator
Istanbul was the scene of a very interesting race this weekend. Last Man Standing 2012.

All started with a funny idea. Drivers thought that it would be fun if they race for 2 hrs without pitman and marshal! and... Ciddi Amatör did it again. It was an awesome race. First in Turkey for sure and probably first in the world too...

Only 10 drivers have been accepted to the race. They did their pit and turned their cars on the track. They were not allowed to turn others cars too. During 2 hrs of main they run between the pit, track and drivers stand many times.
