  • 2019 Official Results - Event #5 TMP - July 13, 2019

    Good evening all!

    Event #5 - TMP results are now finalized on our website at: https://time-attack.ca/results/2019-event-5-tmp/

    Chief Timer's Notes:
    - During the start of X group's 3rd heat, I was distracted for a moment and forgot to mark the beginning of the 3rd heat for X group. This is why you will see the first 6 cars in X group seem to have 6 hot laps in their second heat but no third heat. Overall, there was only one competitor (Michael Kosior) who went off track. Thankfully, his best time of the day was in his first heat and thus discounting all 6 hot laps in heat #2 and #3 did not affect scoring overall. No one else went off course in that group in their 3rd heat. There will be a software improvement to make it possible to move the laps into different heats in the future.
    - There were at least three competitors who didn't have banners or door cards during competition sessions and worst of all, they had similar colour vehicles and it made for a confusing callout by marshals to determine which car went off track or two wheels off. Please note that the banners and cards are there for identification of your car and our sponsors on them paid good money to be there! Please ensure your banners and door cards are on - OTA reserves the right to reject you from the grid if you do not have the appropriate door identification.
    - Several competitors have indicated to me that when they were retired for the day (due to mechanical or fatigue), they drop off from live results. I will change it so that when retired, I will keep you going on the scoring but cross you out from the grid sheets the grid marshals are given. This is a possible avenue for software improvements.

    That being said, the software is 100% reliable now and I am pleased to say that I expect no less for SMP.

    As usual, all feedback is appreciated and let us know what you think of the new live timing feature!

    Cheers.

    I noticed something strange on the 3rd and 7th laps. Times are inconsistent with the other laps -
    Shane Glasford GT2 1995 Acura Integra 86.204 86.470 86.226 100.077 87.612 86.877 86.204 98.421 87.511 86.313 86.277
    i know i was not 13-15 seconds off on any of my hot laps.
    Then i looked at some other times:
    Mohamed Hussain GT2 1989 Honda CRX Si 82.689 85.758 84.072 96.003 83.399 84.044 83.226 98.316 84.237 82.689 83.004...etc.
    Am I reading this wrong?

      Hi Shane,

      Excellent question. The way TMP has laid the timing loop, you cross it as soon as you are released from grid so ALL competitors trip the timing loop right off the bat. I do not count this lap into your hot lap. This is your warmup lap. The next time you come past start/finish, your first hot lap begins. Almost everyone has a bad lap first, followed by three good laps then a bad lap (to start second heat) followed by three good laps, then another bad lap (to start third heat) followed by the last three hot laps.

      I do need to brush up the formatting as there isn't enough columns to show all twelve laps (3 bad laps, 9 hot laps) currently but that is how it is being counted.

      I stuck to this format as this is how OTA has always run at TMP with the exception that the start/finish was right after T13 but this year we have moved it up to before T1. Mileage is still the same.

      EDIT: I've updated the laptimes file to discard your warmup laps so that only hot laps are shown to make it easier to understand.

      Hope this makes sense!

      Cheers.

        Ok that makes sense- I was not worried about the times. I was well off the pace, just noticed the anomaly and mentioned it.

        Thanks

          In addition to the officially posted results, live timing lets you go back to previous events as well if you like. It's on really slow hosting, so it does take a little while to load on the first page load. That'll be changed soon hopefully, definitely by next season. In case anyone didn't catch it, clicking on any competitor name lets you see all their laps for the day, broken out by session.
