Now I see why Mike Swiss kept staring at the monitor after the race. He could understand how he had lost. LOL

The race was terrific, especially with all volunteer marshals.

 

The round-robin might of taken away a bit from figuring out exactly where everyone was.

 

Cheater has some corrections to make on what lanes the racer's best time was turned on.

Mike is correct. I rarely see LaneMaster print-outs and just misread the indication of the lane for racers' fastest lap. Fixing now...
