StockHatch782 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

The finals are a different kettle of fish as you point out - first to the flag wins.
Rather than working all that out I generally just wait until the sheet is displayed telling me which final I'm in! I think my maths teacher has a lot to answer for (although interestingly(?) my I.T. teacher was a certain Roy Gravestock, whose name is on the list of previous stock hatch champions).

I only raised the rather pernickety point because you were talking about the finals and I don't like to see you making yourself look silly, Bert...! But now you've redeemed yourself and are, in fact, correct. So well done.
