There was some information posted that the scoring system being used didn't allow the race to be stopped, and resumed later. I finally got a chance to talk to Mary at JLap (JL's wife). She looked at the results posted on their website, then told me:

Mary:
"With JLap, you could "halt" the race as it was when started to rain... (Pause) and when the track was open, you could start to count again... just by click the "Unpause" button... They used the latest build... the only mistake was that they didn't PAUSE the race while it was raining."

That would have solved one of the two problems at the race. Had the start/finish line been before the pits, and had the people running the computer known about the "pause" function, things would have gone much more smoothly.

Even though most people badmouth JLap, when its used correctly (staffing knowing the system) it is one of the best and has the most in-race features of ALL timing systems...The biggest problem is, most race directors don't take the time to "learn" JLap...Bummer, really

You hit the nail on the head there as they put me into 3rd place in masters since they dot't know how to read lap times I was runnig 19 and 20sec laps andthey took one 19sec lap away. after a flame out I passed the leader and got my lap back so Jlaps show me as the only one getting a lap on that line just as its shows no lap when you get passed by the leader.so thats the one they took then they tell me its a 15sec peantly for the flame out so I lose a lap and get a peantly so at end of race it showed

Harry 128 45m05s
maxy 127 45m 14s
Tim 127 dnf

now with out losing a lap I would have 128 (2nd place)
also does not having 127 dnf beat out 127 45m14sas I would be on my 128 lap


just me being a little upset after waiting for 3 1/2 hr thinking Iam 2nd then getting the 3rd place without time to file a protest

I would care to differ with you. I realize this one occassion was an operator error, but the real problem with Jlap is the software the database is driven from. Practically everywhere I've ever raced where they had Jlap running there were database problems. We spent over $800 on Jlap and tried for over a year to get it to work properly. The results were pitiful. We even lost racers because of the frustration. You can rest assured my partner and I are fluent with operating Jlap. We did everything short of rewriting the database program.

The best advice I can offer to track owners that have Jlap is; if you have a copy that works with your current computer, then don't upgrade the software and don't purchase a new computer- you are one of the lucky ones.
