Thanks Paul. Thanks George. Thanks Pelle.

WOW. Teemu's 20 - 507 is the fastest race time of the whole weekend.

Well done.

Reedy race and Nordic have different way of racing format so times cannot be compared

Anyway, where can we find some movies??

Discussion becomes a bit unreal, with comparing times between Reedy and Nordics. Unfortunatly difficult to do due to several reasons:

- The Reedy drivers started on the main straight about 6 seconds before the lapcounting start line on the second straight. So here a part of the time differences
- Reedy started in one go. Crashes/slow downs/being on front or last row are calculated inside the first lap. Nordics was a staggered start.
- Reedy drivers had 3 new sets for racing, Nordics only one. Difference of new or old set about .2 a lap.
- Reedy drivers are racing each other, so not qualifying.

Most times set at Reedy do not give real situation. The best indication would be a serie of single fastest laps. As I was able to see all races live, I made a list of 10 drivers what could have been an realistic A final based on their performances, with only the top 3 a secure bet and them being equally fast:

1) Marc Rheinard
2) Jilles Groskamp
3) Teemu Leino
4) Simo Ahoniemi
5) Steen Graversen
6) David Spashett
7) Victor Wilck
8) Pelle Martin
9) Marc Fischer
10) Chris Grainger

Main problem of the track is understeer, this due its variaty of cambered and off cambered corners, which makes is really difficult to find a good balance without overheating the rear tyres. As drivers tried to get steering, they putted more pressure on the rear tyres, and this was noticeable when using the set a second or more time when the rear tyres where worn out. This was also due to use of other additives, which worked good once, but made the tyre perform worse in the following runs. For the European Chamionships this will be worse, as only 6 new tyres (1.5 set) will be allowed for 6 qualifiers.... It looked as only Marc, Teemu and Jilles where able to make their cars turn enough with new as well used tyres.

The race was well organised, but lacked a little competitors. Congrats go to Teemu for 3 flawless finals, to Rocket start Marc (in race 7 he went from last to second in 2 corners, where even Anders Myrberg came up and said it was a more sensational start than the one from Surikarn in South Africa, and I have to agree!), as well to Jilles.... do not forget to add weight next time please! Simo was awesome under the pressure, the race between him and Marc was nailbiting and it took Marc 2 minutes to find finally a place where he could overtake; he was those 2 minutes really ON his rear bumper.

Pelle was a hero rallying his car on the track, Barry liked the grass, Thomas and Marc on the playstation, Chris Grainger searching a reason why all was so well on Saturday and not on Sunday... but most searching for that little little more steering.... To be continued in 4 weeks.....

Good observations Oscar, that could only be made trackside - so you got time to watch all the races and build batteries, motors etc...

Can't wait for the Euro's themselves - I'll have to see if i can arrange to be working in DK, our office there is only about 25k away

Default Euro Reedy Race

Oscar,

Do you possibly have video of the race between Marc and Simo, that would be great to see. For that matter any video would be welcome.

Thanks,
Steve C

Thanks for the explanations Oscar.

If I understood your report correctly you said the Reedy guys had 3 sets of tyres whilst the Nordics only had 1. Here's your quote:

Reedy drivers had 3 new sets for racing, Nordics only one. Difference of new or old set about .2 a lap.

Considering this, the Reedy guys did 8 races on 3 sets. Teemu did 9 races on 1 set, and still made those ballistic times. Or have I got it all wrong.

The Reedy race drivers got three full sets for 8 races. Then the nordics had two sets for all of qual and finals. Temu, steen and possibly a few others used one set for qual (6 runs) and saved the second set for the finals.
