I can send you what I have which is an old sheet with new car data added for 2018.

It doesn't have the new venues which I don't have the Excel knowledge to add :roll:

Do want it Steve or do you have an old sheet you can use?

If you send it me, I could have a look at the back end and add the new tracks and lengths. Unless someone has already done this ?

I did some mods for Nick when we added class 1C tyres, so it should be quite straight forward.

Got a bit bored with the first 45 laps, then it got interesting.

Thanks for the spreadsheet Steve.

I've been having a bit of a play with it using this car's figures against everyone's times from last year. If I stick with 1A's, I can be a shade over 3secs slower for the same score. (I've dropped BHP as well as 40kg of car weight) If I move to 1B's (as per Sabre) I can be 1.8 secs slower. If I go to the CM rules (2.5% against our 1.5%) I've got about 0.4 of a second :shock:

That's quite a chunk of time to make up on 1Bs

It's the long straights that makes me think I'd be better off on A's.

Anyhoooo, just sent you a copy of the spreedsheet updated to take account of the full CM Calendar. Our spreadsheet was only set up for a maximum 20 events, so I had to pick it apart to work out how to add an extra 5 that would be automatically copied onto the other three results tables pages, and that the calculation cells still found the data and squirted out the scores. I think it works now :pc

Peter/Mikey , if you've not already done this I can email you a copy to save you a bit of work.

So corky is like a vintage champagne. Just got better and better.
Brian was like Guinness. Quiet, imposing but incredibly good.
Trevor is Irish malt. Triple distilled and soooo smoooth.
Steve is st Austell brewery tribute bitter. Lurking in the corner and very good.
Phil is Beaujolais nuveaux. New to the scene but what a revelation.
And Josh, the git, is your strong cider. Innocuous but has a real bite and leaves you with a massive headache.
And I'm prosecco. All fizz and bang but no real substance :lol:

Brilliant day. Seven runs of over 2 minutes each on an international race circuit that is like a rollercoaster. This circuit is all about gonads. Have you got them, if not grow some. Exhilarating.

Thanks for the spreadsheet Steve

Been having a play :roll: ; if we all do the following times we would all score 25 points :)

Steve Cork (A Tyres) 133.36 seconds
Ben Curry (A Tyres*) 131.72 seconds
Paul Turnbull (A Tyres) 125.76 seconds
Peter Smith (B Tyres) 127.02 seconds

Blimey, I don’t think I’ve ever had a car that could put in the slowest scratch time and still be ahead on handicap.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.
