    This episode came early in the race just before the end of a full-course yellow. Leader James Weaver in the #16 Lola slowed way down coming into 10A to try and get a running start to the green flag. The field behind him was already anticipating the green and a big bunch-up occurred. The Porsche that's facing the wrong way had to spin to avoid collecting someone (perhaps the #20 Lola, which is going around him).

    The next time the same situation occurred, Weaver didn't slow down as much. Perhaps someone warned him on the radio?

    (Later, the #16 lost the lead, and ultimately a podium finish, when the car got stuck in 5th gear. Apparently the paddle-shifter mechanism had failed, and it was disconnected. Luckily they had never removed the conventional gearshift lever!)
