Well, first car was only out of parc expose half an hour ago but they are strangely silent on the event's goings on although they have posted the starting order. If they've already gone to Kenton, they might have uplink problems. I think there have been cellphone problems from there in the past.

They said they'll be doing the event scoring, keep an eye open for those updates.

Meanwhile, somebody is leading after day one in Corsica with some other guys hot on his heels.

No results so far from LSPR and Rally America updates way out of date.

I have followed every SCCA Pro Rally on the internet this year, along with every Canadian Championship event, that I did not attend.

In Canada, we expect almost instantaneous results, and we get them thanks to Jean-Georges Marcotte and his incredible scoring system and team.

On the other hand, results from the SCCA events have been rather haphazard (to be kind). Surely, this is an area where SCCA and/or Rally America will have to make significant changes for 2004.

I suggest that they consult with (or hire) Jean-Georges to find out how to score an event promptly and how to get the results diseminated immediately over the internet.

7 pm PST (2200 at LSPR) updates seem to be clicking
along just fine. Perhaps it's just a matter of making
sure there is a backup data link available (on the part
of Rally America) or not being the victim of caching
problems (on the part of the user).

Yeah, they were great at PFR..... Instantaneous must mean 2hrs later in Canadian. I know we expect them to be perfect and predict stage times so that we can have them before they even happen but they are in a remote location and they are human so be happy with what you get ;)

Here is Lurch.

Good battle between Pasi & Diggins.
EDIT: I see no times on RA, but they were seperated by 3 seconds after SS5. Ramana is in 3rd like 1 minute back (after SS5). Choiniere 4th, O'Sullivan 5th, McGeer 6th, Buffum 7th. Mitchell was 1 minute ahead of Utecht. Whiteman ahead of Burmeister by quite a bit.

Steve:

You are correct. PFR (in fact the three western events) were slow in posting results on the internet.

Jean-Georges did not score these events.

From the PFR website
Compile by Dennis Wende
Assistant: Jean-Georges Marcotte

Published by RallyScoring.com, owned by Jean-Georges Marcotte. Rally Scoring Service is providing the Rally Scoring software, 2 notebooks computers, networks equipments, web page service (result) and 1 person to compile the rally. The Rally Scoring Service group will not receive enough to cover the actual rally expenses. Rally Scoring Service is proud to be an unofficial sponsor of the Pacific Forest Rally 2003.

I agree that in Maine the services was great! and I believe I am starting to sound like what I am opposed to which is people whining about a service that is given to them, so I will apologize and drop the subject So, Sorry for the whining.

Hey, Lurch, ya searching for aliens? Is that a double bifurcated tractor beam trying to pull back on ol' Chris? Telling yer aircraft where the carrier is?

Awesome, totally awesome--the lights still work and the Mazda reflections are *stunning*.

Glad to hear you and Cindy are okay after the wild roll... sounds pretty dramatic to me.

John,

Maybe the rally gods are getting back at Lurch for his
comments a few weeks ago about wanting to go drifting.
