you know... between trying to prep the plane (wich mine was NOT after the last repair.. lol) learning HOW to race (rules) and actually racing/landing/retrival/being on the turn button thing... i had no time... lol... only 10 of us so it rotated VERY fast... the guy was still in the air before the other landed... and if you landed high on the hill there's another plane ready to land... VERY quck moving and i didnt expect it... so i got no video... Ben didnt either i very fast moving race... but very fun

The scoring is a bit complex. There were 11 rounds, so a maximum possible 11000 points, except that we usually throw out a round every 5, to nullify the luck factor (good or bad luck), so in this case, there were 9 rounds that counted, and your worst two were thrown out. Thus a possible 9000 points.

The winner of each round get's a 1000, then everyone else's score is divided against it, so perhaps number 2 in the round get's 980 or so. You add up the scores and that's what you get. Unless you have a saftey during the event, then 100 points is subtracted from your score at the end. This is why we use spreadsheets!
Previous comp scores here for viewing:

Here is a sample (opens in Excel):

I had a great time today. All the pro's were real helpful and made me feel welcome. I'm even happy with my best run of 46.11 sec. Just good enough to beat Joe's MB. LOL. He did well with that little thing.

Wow! Thanks for all the pictures Ray. Thanks to all in attendance, very close to a perfect event. Those who hadn't seen it before, saw some good stuff. Good piloting, mistakes, and what makes F3F racing a serious rush. The wind was great, the cooperation of pilots and friens working the corners made my job real nice. I even set my best ever time, as well as 2 other pilots doing the same. Joe and Ben did great and got a serious dose of stlye differences.
Bob Bingham (Team USA) showed why he's on the team- not only is he fast- he's scary- ask Joe!!! Mike S. (slopejockey) is smooth and had the lowest time of the day-controlled fury. The DS king Kyle Paulson flew great all day and finished 2nd behind Bob B. We thank all in attendance and look forward to our return in (I think) January. Nice job Joe-Ben look forward to doing it again.... I know their knees and thumbs are still shaking..... ALOT

Great F3F race
Warren did a great job as CD and pilot with a sizzeling new persanal best.
mike aka slope jocky set a hot 38 with his old acaciaII setting we think a slope record.
the fun Ben had was obvious to all as he flew with a damaged fuse and would not stop till it appeared it was about to fall off!!!!
Joe followed suite and is definitly HOOKED!!!!
great job by all.
I couldent race with them as Ray H couldent finish my acacia II repair in time but I had a great time with the greatest bunch of guy's, the times every one ran were better than my personal best .
After germany the rest of the gang will be back and the field larger, the pace not the race will slow down as more pilots will be available to man the turns.
nathan is CD at the next race and if held at white point will be easier as there is no street or fence to climb over!!
I hope to see more new faces there.

F3Fracing pics

I managed to get a couple of pics of the palnes in action at the corner on the left side of the course. I have an old digital camera and I feel lucky I caught these. Watching these pilots making turns so close to the cliff at the speeds they were traveling was exciting and somtimes scary.

Sorry I couldn't get a picture of everyones plane I took about 50 pics and got a lot of blue sky pictures. LOL.

There seemed to be a small problem at around 2:30. The air filled up with sharks and racing had to stop until it was safe to go back out again.

actually there was a 1 hour break for the locals during which Ray and Bill flew there sharks
