|7th out of 43 drivers, we'll take it!|
Once the drivers have their actual driving time, (down to the thousandth of a second), then each time is multiplied by a factor that attempts to level the playing field. This results in what is called the PAX time. Then, with everyone's PAX time, the Tidewater Sports Car Club uses a 100 point scale to award year-long championship points.
The fastest PAX driver always gets 100 points. After that, just divide the other driver's times into the winners PAX time, and there you have some number less than 100. Add up the best points results from 7 of the 9 events all year, and there you have the club champion.
After finishing 20th last year, the NMS FIAT driver is shooting for 15th or better, so this first event of the year will help meet that goal. Sure, it was cold and slippery out there, and some very fast drivers stayed home on Sunday, but you've got to play the game if you want to win!
Here are our UNOFFICIAL points calculations, so we'll just say that we'll once again claim FASTEST ITALIAN CAR OF THE DAY!
