I don't like the current rage in penalties in the world racing events. I mean, if I go off the track at 120 MPH, I'm not really thinking about who I was in front of at the time I miraculously return to the track- I'm just trying to survive! Or, like Sofuglu at Assen, if I get penalized while racing and I don't understand their communications from the pits, how am I supposed to know I'm being docked 3 places? I think you have 3 types of penalties: 1. jump start= drive through penalty. 2. Rough riding= disqualify or deduct certain amount of time per incident (i.e. minor=5 seconds, major=30 seconds or DQ, all added after race finish). 3. Cutting course= so many seconds per position gained (i.e. 3 seconds for 1, 6 seconds per 2, 12 seconds per 3, etc. imposed after race). Unless you have a specific process to inform the riders their penalty (i.e. special flag with their number on it and a pit board detailing the action), then it's impossible to enforce. And to penalize a person with loss of position is impossible, too. I mean, if they say "Go back 2 positions" can you just wait until someone passes you then repass them in the act of racing and claim that counts as one position? If it's "Go back 3 positions" but the 3rd bike is 2 minutes back on the last lap, is that fair? If they say go back X positions can you go back just enough to let them by then repass them with a set up in your favorite overtaking place and instantly repass them? This all makes no sense and you'd think the FIM or higher authorities would have a better design for penalties in place. The "not profiting from an error" theory just doesn't cut it in racing. You don't know how much you've profited by a mistake as you're not really concentrating on the other racers, especially behind you!
