Mike or anybody! I have been asked to write a
report on the Morgan race for a Monday deadline, would anyone be able to let me have some detail over the phone or e.mail asap Monday morn?
A result sheet would be most welcome if TSL are not on the ball.

Thanks in advance,

Bob.

Results and live timing will be on alkamel timing, Bob. There are two races, one each day, so will have to see what we can come up with......

Bob, I hope you have pointed out the need to visit the event, given any sort of deadline, and that under the circumstances you would need a travelling assistant and perhaps a photographer (Spa is a big place and you cannot be everywhere) thus justifying a private jet for travelling and perhaps a limo with competent driver for getting around the paddock and circuit environs.


You know it would make sense for the content, quality and speed of production of the content demanded by the client.

The official web site for the Event has a "Results" tag that points here:

You're very welcome Bob.


(If the Editor agrees could you do me the favour of sending me some contact details so I can pitch some further ideas to him/her (on your behalf of course ....))

Bob, with some training you can follow any race when Alkamel makes the live timing. You could go for timing of the full grid or follow any car/ all cars on the track. Takes a while to be a perfect viewer though but the best system at the moment imho.

All set up in the Morgan encampment and looking forward to an early night to compensate for my 0115hrs start this morning!

Patronised (Grant) Flattered (Gerard) Insulted (Mike) all in one day! And me just 7 days away from exceeding four score years.


No matter how long you live there are always new experiences to 'enjoy' in life.


Sleep tight Mike.

I got the picture that "our" Bauble could need some help, Mike or may be wrong.

Ami Robert, I'll try to make a list of what kind of info you can get from live timing. The one we're talking about is complete (Alkamel system), red flags, yellow flags, live penalties when they are given by race director and so on. You can train yourself during Q or maybe free practice. You'll see clearly best lap or last lap time for a given car and close to drivers list is the type of car.
What is tricky is to make the difference between two drivers entered on the same car, because you dont always know who is at wheel. Tricky to, when a time penalty applies, you can only briefly read it before the number of laps or total time is affected. No big deal in fact, rather entertaining with some training. And there is a "moving map" of the full grid during the race/Q. Screen shot is helpful of course but quite a hassle!
