yes

J.G. mentioned getting "lowest time yet" from the 400' time during one of the livestreams, hence my question.

 

There's also been some... discussion?... in the past about wanting to have some results with "additional notes" recorded somewhere... since the "raw results" leaves out some context (supra = ford wagon, secret wagon = c4, etc).  However, I recognize that this might be stepping on Tim/Tom/Margie/GRM's toes/IP.  But, it'd be pretty easy for the forum community to setup an semi-open GoogleDocs file populated with the results with additional fields for "notes" and/or "tires" to be populated by "accredited" forum members.  But, if we're going to do that... we probably ought to fire it up soon, while the memory is relatively fresh... assuming we get some kind of "official blessing" for it.

Like 7th with used unknown date road race tires vs 3rd with stickered a7?

I guess the stat geeks would like it but i’m cool with “this is where my $ went and this is how I did”

I have been trying to watch things on YouTube. Will the live feeds be uploaded so those that could not watch live can go back and watch things?   

Also. Would GRM be open to having volunteers help with the production/ filming/ end of things?  Say setting a couple more cameras around and or sending out a couple more roving reporters to film/interview the event. All this does not need to be live (but live would be even more cool) it could then be edited down and released as content on there site/YouTube over the next couple weeks. 

The little bit of stuff I have seen so far has me wanting more.

Love the enthusiasm for the broadcasts, but at this point we can barely muster enough of a volunteer force to pick up an orange vinyl pylon when it falls over, and the leap from "wave this red flag" to "produce and broadcast a live multi-camera sporting event" is fairly broad. Still, though we recognize the need to broadcast and archive this event in a multimedia fashion. Really the only thing standing between us and that reality is re$ources. And the best way to get those resources is to have a viable product worthy of those resources. Literally the best thing anyone can do right now to help expand the coverage in future years is to make sure you're consuming and RELENTLESSLY SHARING our current offerings.

Oh, and for those that noticed there was no live feed from Saturday. Internet was actually garbage all weekend at the track, which was the cause of the dropouts in a couple of the feeds. Which kind of sucked because it was great last year, and three weeks ago when we went to do a site survey and set up the autocross courses. I can inly attribute it to a substantial portion of NW Florida's infrastructure getting wiped off the map the day prior to the event. 

We did spend Saturday shooting some prerecorded featured on a few cars, which wil appear on a future live show (probably the Halloween special on October 31st). 

As for the 400' times, we had one car under the 6-second mark which was the Justang. A few more were in the low 6s. We do have some chicken-scratch notes on the 400' times that we'll try to get into some sort of manageable format.

Datsaniti went 6.0s in the 400' or so I'm told. I think Wreck Racing and the V8 Miata got under 6.0s too.

In reply to Patrick :

Car 16 was a stock Miata 1.8 drivetrain on 195 street tires with only me driving. It's my son's car, but he doesn't have his license yet. No pro driver runs (I did suggest it to him, but he wanted to give me the seat time. 32 days prior to the event, it was covered in matt black (scratch that... chalky, charcoal colored) paint, including the door handles. We disassembled everything we could for paint, and went through all of the "safety and reliability" items. It can get faster next year.
