Yup. Rob did...difference was 2.5 seconds if I recall correctly...I know it would take use of all fingers and toes, but Steve could probably come up with some kind of way to equalize the results.

I agree that the event results should be tossed out for the Team Comp. While it would be nice to think that we'd be able to use the difference between Rob's two runs, there are just two many variables that cannot be accounted for to make that accurate without any sort of doubt.
When I spoke to various people yesterday about this....the general concenous was that the event be tossed out.

Wasn't group 1 just Pro, Tire, and Novice? Would be easy to separate... Rob was (from my memory) 2.6xx seconds slower on course 2, which is ~6.4%. Multiply all the PAX times of Pro, Tire, and Novice by 1.064, and you will have a rough idea... Of course, not all cars would have been equally effected by the chicane, but that's as close as we are likely to get.

Where as, on the 2nd course, Tom Deady was 36.271, and I was 36.868.
That's a Rough top five. You are welcome to calculate further, but it's my bed time

Guys, there is no way we can fairly 'equal out' the times. The course changed. The number of runs changed (from 4 to 3 runs) End of story. There were too many problems and variables to account for. To make the decision the wash this event is a fair one. No one benefits, no one suffers. We'll simply continue the team competition at the next 3 events with the hopes we don't have another Statesville happen again.

If you go back and look at the results from past events, many of the teams have been separated by less than 0.1 secs. There is just no way we are going to be able to adjust the results between the two courses with that level of accuracy.
I would still like to see the results posted with an asterick beside times that came from the 1st course just to see what it looks like though.
