ST1,2,3 Relative Speed Anomaly at Championships

Recommended Posts

ST1,2,3 lap times at '17 Thunderhill Championships are perplexing

fastest laps of top 2 cars in each class

ST1 1:53.139, 1:52.951

ST2 1:53,346, 1:55.396

ST3 1:51.726, 1:52.438

 

What is the magic formula for ST3 to be the fastest class?

Drivers

 

You CANNOT go by lap times from the classes if you do not know whether or not each class car is built to the rules AND if the driver is a good driver or not. Traffic plays another role.

I was the opposite anomaly coasting to 1:58s in ST3.

Utterly destroyed by those monsters.

Pushes me to step up my game, also that is the home track for many.

And I think that 1:51 was DQ for being underweight.

Seat time at that track.

Plus an epic commute up and back and some seriously good times with good dudes.

It was a similar deal at the East Coast Championships at Sebring, with out-of-order times from TTU down through TTD:

Let's be honest...at our amateur level, a lot of it is driver ability and car prep.

 

As a specific example, the TTC winner was planning to run in TTD, but found out at the last minute that a recent modification to his car bumped him up a class (as he could not add enough ballast or dumb the power down enough to stay in TTD).

 

Besides, racing has always been a contest between the people who bothered to show up in the first place.
