I was reviewing the Seed and Speed Factor information on the Rally America website and I saw that Jim Kloosterman, Car #500 is a Seed 0, but he does not have a Speed Factor. Can anyone explain this?

I don't have the exact answer - but it is just a mistake. I gave Jim a little ribbing at CFR about it. Guess it's no big surprise it hasn't been corrected yet. I've seen snails move faster than things get done at SCCA. Realistically, I think he is about seed 3 (maybe 2 if he gets in a really good run or two).

I suspect nobody has brought it to the attention of anybody responsible for fixing it. It was probably a blank cell in an Excel spreadsheet that came out as zero.

In the previous seeding list Jim has a seed cause I fixed it last time.
Must have been a blank cell in the excel spreadsheet that caused him
to get a zero again. It's fixed now.

...just an error? Well, that's no fun. I think Jim knows the secret handshake.

RE: Why was Tim Winker a Seed 3?

Once upon a time, when dinosaurs still roamed the Yoo-Pee, I was a Seed 3 driver. How could this happen to a guy with a rather stock propelled Datsun 510?

In those days you were seeded based on finishing positions. In my first rally, the Lac Vieux Desert Divisional of 1979, I finished 5th ... out of 5 finishers. Anyone who finished in the Top 5 on a Divisional was placed in Seed 3.

It came back to haunt me later that year when I was seeded ahead of several much faster cars ... and faster drivers ... at the Press On Regardless. I hit a small tree on the first stage when I moved over to let the rapid Dodge Colt behind me get past.

Ask Bruce Weinman about how the damaged light bar was repaired.
