All, 

I sure would like for SSCC to post the exact times used at the two checkpoints per speed class. I have seen the variances I have been scored at each of the three places but only the exact finish line times have ever been posted per class in tiyr notes. I can use the distance vs speed formula to determine when I should reach each point but I have not seen the posted times used by SSCC only the distance. Maybe a mute point but while I can see my variances at the finish lines, I  always differ at the check points.

No, George, it turns out that our dear Bunny sent me my Shootout speed out of the goodness of her heart - and probably to preclude my merciless harassment of poor Mr. Blue.  Of course, I don't suppose you care that much about your Flag 3 and Flag 6 times at the extreme speeds you run ;-)

Glad Bunny was able to placate you, nothing worst then an angry King... though I see the Shootout speeds are posted.

And Flag 3 isn't the problem, it's Flag 6, I have to bank a lot of time by then to be able to carry my avg through the narrows.

Gee, George, you must bank a fair amount of time since you hit well over 200 mph through the speed trap

Thanks Tom,

I do have to bank over 30 seconds before the narrows, so the Speed Trap straight really helps.  Also had to get a new speedometer, cause the stock one only goes to 180 and reads 162 mph at 200 mph on the gps...  (lower final drive ratio and larger tires)

I almost pegged this one also...

Blue,

With NORC just around the corner :-)

Will you also provide the NORC Checkpoint Times?

And have Silver State folks given any consideration to the NORC checkpoint scoring change that I suggested on a separate thread a while ago?

Regards,

Andy

Hi Andy,

I'm working with Timing & Scoring to verify Check Point Times for NORC. 

I have not discussed your suggestion with others on staff yet.  That said though, I did re-read your suggestion a couple of times.  I get your point, but would you agree the current method is indeed more challenging?

Blue,

I agree that the check point challenge for a one way event is challenging. Not withstanding the two way event depends upon the two ending times balance to zero or as close to as possible to be the class winners where as the CPC only counts on total addition of times.  I suggest that only use the CPC duriing the SSCC and not the NORC 2 way since you are not going to use the CP's as a restart point. It also provides for two devices, and a bqackup, to be available at each finish line as a verification of actual times. Please review these  thoughts and discuss with the board. I am sure they will take whatever recommendations you present .

Blue,

I agree that as scored this year it is more challenging in that it prioritizes zeroing out South Bound since any variance there will be counted again when you try to zero out that variance on NB.

I am good with either the approach as scored in May 2019 or as I proposed.  My proposal was to treat the SB and NB as one complete race for Checkpoint Challenge and be aligned with overall race instead of as 2 races. 

I think the idea of the Checkpoint Challenge is good for NORC.  The times are collected and it gives added incentive to zero out at Flag 6, SB Fin, Flag 6; instead of just at NB Fin.

Either way - I'm looking forward to May!

Andy
