    Chequered flag � This signals the end of the session. Complete the lap you are on at a reduced pace and return to the pits, indicating you intentions as you approach the pit entrance.

    There are alternative meanings to a couple of the flags. White can mean last hot lap before you get the checker. Red means stop on track with a lot of groups including SpeedVentures and Redline, but other groups (NASA, I believe) use it for come slowly into the pits. Furled black flag is often pointed at offending driver as a warning, no need to come in. If meatball flag, stay off racing line as you come in, you may be leaking fluids onto the track.

    And now for the most important question, is the debris flag a yellow flag with red strips, or a red flag with yellow stripes.

    Checkered flag means -- "you win"

      Actually, the red and yellow isn't just debris. It means the track surface has changed since the last time around. It could be water, oil, or yes, debris

      And blue with yellow stripe- "There's a race going on, and you're not in it"

        Alternate meaning for blue with diagonal yellow stripe -- "drive over your capabilities to try to get away from the guy right behind you. . ." This is often followed by a black flag for spinning off track. lol

                I thought we just used the "Starman" rule:

                Green means go

                Red means stop

                Yellow means go very fast
