Someone just had to close the most contentious thread we've had in years before I could make a smart a$$ retort. Bernie is right. I'm wrong. Thanks for pointing it out, Bernie. Usually my programming is pretty rock solid so nothing goes wrong goes wrong goes wrong goes wrong goes wrong goes wrong goes wrong goes wrong goes wrong goes wrong goes wrong :behead <reset> Before I start, I want to make absolutely clear I am fundamentally opposed to a time threshold exclusionary process in a club racing atmosphere. In English, I don't like the timed qualifying requirements set out in the rule book for the WMRC. I did a little research with respect to the 112% or 120% qualification rule proposed. Here's what we experienced this past year. The fastest lap time accurately recorded in Superbike in 2012 was a 1:10.380. 120% of that time would be a 1:24.456 and 112% of that time would be a 1:18.826. The ONLY, REPEAT ONLY, rider that fell outside the 120% time was Jay. He finished the race 2 laps down. Eat more beans Jay. Q: Can our marshals take on the task of blue flag procedures? A:We can try. Q: Would the riders feel comfortable with blue flag procedures? A: Well? Q: Do we even have blue flags for all the corners? A: Beats me. Last question: Q: Will Johnny Rock Roadblock ignore the blue flags? A: Ask Al Ludington.
