You will notice how the standings and race report have been delayed this week. This is due to the Ryehouse Team working on an issue which has been brought to light from Saturdays Race.
Kart number 24 (Spectre Racing) was deducted 3 laps on the Alpha timing system during Saturday’s race.
A query was raised on the day and subsequently dismissed as a “quirk” relating to the red flag. On further, lengthy, investigation, it has been proved beyond reasonable doubt that 3 laps were incorrectly deducted from kart number 24.
It is proving impossible to determine whether this is an Alpha Timing error (it doesn’t appear to have happened before), or human error (our race director has never made a mistake before, it’s quite difficult to do so).
Correction of the error reverses the finishing position of just two teams in the championship (7th and 8th), both have been informed of the correction.” It also changes the positions of 3 teams last race.
Changes in position are reflected in Bold.
1st – Custom Rods (SP)
2nd – Spectre Racing (SP)
3rd – Amigos 2 (C)
4th – Titan Motorsport (SP)
5th – Team JAM (SP)
The Ryehouse team are still investigating the root cause along with Alpha Timing.
