This video is awesome! Really cool to see the slow motion of every car. There's a lot of editing and movie building to make this, so nice of you guys! Ok, I have to admit, at 6:00 in, my little Porsche 356 speedster Pacifico beer looks pretty cool drifting.

It turns out I was using an older spreadsheet with the template for the results that was based on a race where the lap counter counted the first lap when the cars crossed the start line. To account for that I had deducted one lap from the lap totals. However: Luf's system is set up that it does NOT count that lap, so I penalised EVERYBODY with 3 laps! Obviously this does not change anything in the results (all the totals just go up by 3 laps), but in the interest of full correctness, the follwoing shows the corrected totals:


The consistency indices obviously improve: this was actually the giveaway! I just did the calcs and posted without checking the data. When Duke looked at it he went "Wait a minute, these consistency numbers are lower than usual!" And this when these cars were slower and actually a lot easier to drive consistently.

Corrected indices:


Thanks Duke and apologies to all, even though it really made no difference to the result.

Thanks for the run and the video work. The BARC # 20 Porsche was driven well and the team is happy to have finished 12th. The chassis is a gift card after all, and to be running in the top half with this has been a lot of fun. Congrats to the Podium winners and to all who sent in a car to participate in this fun event. I know i enjoyed watching my car get around this great track.

I loved the hill climb and the slow mo videos. Outstanding. Not sure how it happened but I'm pleased the Jag made the podium on the hill climb. Thanks for hosting.

Happy to see my Ferrari is holding up the rear of the grid! :laughing-rolling:

That thing is simply under motored. I should have left the MRRC can in it, illegal but it would have been in the fun. :D
