• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting

    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Lengths Behind & Sectional Times


Sup guys, this is probably a impossible question, but it's really starting to irritate me. It's great having sectional times for some of the AW tracks provided by ATR but the problem is comparing those to tracks without sectional times. We all know the method.. take the leaders time at the 2F or 3F pole and you can calculate the two sections of a race, the problem I find is that using lengths behind the leader to calculate time seems pretty inaccurate.

I'm going to use the 5:10 & 5:45 6F races from Wolverhampton on the 6th Feb 2019 for my example because here we can check the lengths behind against the actual recorded time.

In the 5:10 Deconso & Wye Bother lead to the 2F pole in a time of 50.3s with Not So Shy approximately 1.75 lengths behind in 3rd in a time of 50.6. So thats 0.3s difference which seems about right for a 1.75 length gap.

In the 5:45 Phoenix Star led to the 2F pole in 49.9 with Killer Queen approximately 1 length behind in 2nd in a time of 50.2. So again 0.3s difference.

Visually watching the video replays the distances look miles apart yet the times suggest they are the same?? If say we didn't have sectional timing at Wolvs and we used the lengths back as seen on the video replay to calculate times they wouldn't even be close. :headbang:
