On a more serious note, from where I was standing the lap boards were unreadable. I could see them, I just couldn't tell what was on them. I only knew it was the last lap when I could see the starter had the chequered flag ready.
you are right. I think Mr Starter is new and to him the boards might be top notch, easy to read at 1 foot away, however for the drivers they are no good, the number needs to be the full size of the board to be readable, there should be specifications for things like this.
