Here's a link to the Preliminary results of today's event.  Congratulation to Brian Wells for setting FTD and to Steve Fehr for taking Top PAX.  If you see any errors or have any questions, please PM me prior to this coming Sunday when the results will become final and points added to the 2017 Solo Championship tally.  Takes to all that came out today especially those workers that filled in for some of our regulars.  Oh, BTW some kid named Logan Rush took 1st place in Novice.

 

Note:  Results updated to show that car #1 was moved to the novice class.

Here's my video from Sunday's Event.  Special thanks goes out to the course workers who had to clean up the cone carnage.

 

 

Congratulation to Brian, Steve, and Logan!

 

Cheers,

George

Thanks, George.  I think all of us overcooked Pungo Sweeper at least one run (or 5) though 8 cones was tops for the day, haha.  I even hosed it up on my best run.  Speaking of which:

Steve, it looks like there were quite a few spots in that run in 1st gear. Is that correct? Are you manually shifting or just letting the car do it? 

PS nice run.

Only one downshift, Bobby, and that was just because I messed up the entry into Pungo sweeper.   I usually just let the car do the shifting; 95% of the time, it shifts at exactly the right spot I want it to, and does it so seamlessly I often don't even consciously notice.  Occasionally it will inhibit downshifting in a hard-driven decreasing radius turn and I have to manually down-shift on corner entry to make sure I exit in the right gear, but it's pretty rare.  The RPM on my videos is via OBDII and only updates at 1-2Hz which gives some odd readings.

 

I read a story a few years ago about how Walter Rohrl lapped the 'ring in indistinguishable times in a TurboS PDK selecting the gears himself or leaving it in auto.  If Walter Rohrl can't beat the computer, what chance do us mere morals have?
