From memory, resulting that NO whistles in either am or pm session in TWO of the last THREE GP's held there, and only just one whistle for a broken string at one of the sessions in the GP last year.
This would not have covered what happened at the Redfearns GP though I am sure you would not have been happy with me saying - sorry - it is a miss as the target has been fully checked AND was working fine in the first session.

Targets can become faulty during the shoot - everything that breaks was working fine right up to the point when it breaks After all - we are shooting at them
