Yep, you're right. That's why I'm so confused. I don't even remember getting that close to anyone !

You sure that's not black paint on your bumper from when you hit me on grid? [Big Grin]

Anyone aware of where the full results might be posted? So far they are not on MyLaps or the OVR web site.

When they're damn good and ready to. [Big Grin]

(edit) I guess they were ready - posted on mylaps.

(double secret edit) Grrrrrrrrrrr. [Mad] and of course they're WRONG. I didn't get my lap back due to my OCE. T&S fixed it at the track - what gives?

Cutler's car has been painted so many times it's probably just his own paint peeling off revealing the rainbow of former colors underneath... kinda like a Gobstopper.

The timing lights were in place on Friday when I did the course check for the PDX, so I assume they were for Sat & Sun. Were they functional?; I don't know.

Just to further clarify so all know, I believe the loop does extend across the Pit Lane so you will get scored if you are going through the Pits. Am I correct DD?

Also, since we had so many flipping SM's; you probably will not trigger the loop if you go across it inverted.

There is a pit loop at MidO. Timing lights - if two cars cross the lights at the same time only one car will get hit, if someone knowcked down one of the lights or went behind the one on the control tower side of the track then there is no hit. AMB can handle as many cars as you have crossing the loop at the same time as long as they have transponders, the size of the field doesn't matter. 84 SRFs crossing loop for the first time and every lap at the 2009 Sprints and all got hits every time.
Results on Mylaps - Someone in T&S needs to go into the AMB file to adjust for corrections and penalties before it is uploaded to AMB to show the correct finish. Evidently this was not the case.

Thanks Con, if you hadn't moved away this wouldn't have happened. [Big Grin] I really don't care that much, it's just weird to get beat by a car that was on it's roof for the last lap.

I blame Hamilton - if he would have just flipped off-course when he got run into, the track wouldn't have been blocked.

I had help, but I tried really hard to hit the inside wall. That plan went south and instead I crossed into oncoming traffic in front of 15 crazy Miata drivers. Stalled right at track out.

Which is worse, wall or parking in front of 15 Miatas?
