• 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.

Scraping Sectional Times from ATR Website

Has anyone managed to scrape sectional times from the ATR website?

(I'm currently doing a huge manual exercise of typing them all into a spreadsheet one by one)

Thanks,
Tom
 
Dear All,

I thought I would share my current progress on this. I reverted back to only recording the final time rather than all the sectionals as that was taking too much time.

Some questions:
Should i adjust the final times for going allowances?
Do you think I should adjust the final times against weight carried?

Regards,
Tom

How long is a piece of string?

Some do - some dont.

and what about distance changes due to rail movements or fences/hurdles being taken out?
