My pleasure guys, qualifing was a real blast! How oftern does 2 dozen completely unique slot cars turn up on your door step?

I'll be raising my hand to be involved again next year for sure.

This weekend will be excellent!! I'll see if I can progressively post round results but I probably won't be able to due to drivers and marshalls not being able to wait around.

Cheers Manic

I know what you mean, racing all these great cars at Steve's track was some of the best fun i've had with slot cars in a long time, i'll be putting my hand up to be involved every chance i get. B)

Roll On, Round 2!

I'm suprised to read that the car is "underpowered and stays in the slot". It was nearly bloody undriveable when I let it go.. but it was running better and better so I put it away before the driver had used up all his lives

Thanks for posting the results and running the event. Can you explain how the evnet was run? Looking at the results it looks like you ran each car for 10 laps in each direction is this correct? Was the result then based on the fastest time to complete the 80 laps?

The race time is then setup on the system, aiming for 12 minutes total race time for each car. (that'd be 4 minute heats on a three lane track, three minute heats on a four lane track.....)

Proxy Format

I thought this was the format that Steve had asked for?

Just did some quick calcs on the overall points and Sprint is now well in the lead after his easy win. I am in secons with Magoo in third. These are only my calcs,so you will have to wait for the official points calcs from Steve. It will depend on how he decides to calculate them.

As you can see from the results, each round was based on the time taken to complete a set number of laps as apposed to the number of laps completed during a set time. Six of one, half a dozen of the other. I ran the methodology past Steve prior to accepting the round at my track and Steve gave it the thumbs up.

Hopefully people won't get hung up on the semantics of this...

Cheers Manic

PS - Results spreadsheet has been sent to Steve for point calculations, so I'm sure we will get round points and progressive totals as soon as Steve has the time.
