We started the paper the same year the DLRA started. We are both 25 years old. :D

G'Day Wendy,
Thanks for your continued interest in what we do over here.
I sent you the report and photos last year that you so graciously published last year and intend on doing so again this year. Just working on this years results at the moment, still a couple of days away from finishing these. Will have something to you soon.
Is there a deadline I need to work to?

Ok, version 2 of the Track 1 results have now been posted.
First of all, I'm really pleased with about 95% as they match, the other 5% is a bit of a mystery at the moment.
They were recorded manually but did not appear in the computer results. These are the ones marked with a ***.
So now I'm going back through the manual lists to see if I can figure what went on.
If anyone who ran has a *** next to their speed I'd sure like to hear from the as to whether or not they actually made that run.
Fortunately most of these speeds are not an entrants top speed.
I'm sure there is a perfectly good explanation for this, but I just don't know what it is at the moment....

Thanks for the work you are doing here. My first run on Friday has been marked with ***, I did make the run but had trouble with my gearchange. I slowed down on that run ,the speed as posted would be about what I expected.

Thanks Graham, feedback like yours gives me confidence in the decisions I make.
I started going through and allocating records yesterday, this will take a couple of days to complete. So bear with me, we are getting there.

Thanks Greg, great effort. I don't see any results for the electric Corolla 746 (watts in a horsepower). Does anyone know what happened to it? I stumbled across it in the pits late one afternoon but there was nobody around so I couldn't ask any questions.

Cheers

G'Day Dave,
we were just taking about it last night, did a screaming 36mph!!! or there abouts.
Seems he had trouble with his charger, it was actually working in reverse and flattening his batteries...
