ST1,2,3 lap times at '17 Thunderhill Championships are perplexing
fastest laps of top 2 cars in each class
ST1 1:53.139, 1:52.951
ST2 1:53,346, 1:55.396
ST3 1:51.726, 1:52.438

What is the magic formula for ST3 to be the fastest class?

Drivers

You CANNOT go by lap times from the classes if you do not know whether or not each class car is built to the rules AND if the driver is a good driver or not. Traffic plays another role.

I was the opposite anomaly coasting to 1:58s in ST3.
Utterly destroyed by those monsters.
Pushes me to step up my game, also that is the home track for many.
And I think that 1:51 was DQ for being underweight.

It was a similar deal at the East Coast Championships at Sebring, with out-of-order times from TTU down through TTD:

http://timingscoring.drivenasa.com/NASA_Championships/Eastern%20States%202017%20Sebring%20International/Offical%20Results/October%2022%20-%20Group%20E%20(Time%20Trial%20-%20All%20Classes).pdf

Let's be honest...at our amateur level, a lot of it is driver ability and car prep.

As a specific example, the TTC winner was planning to run in TTD, but found out at the last minute that a recent modification to his car bumped him up a class (as he could not add enough ballast or dumb the power down enough to stay in TTD).

Besides, racing has always been a contest between the people who bothered to show up in the first place.
