I'm looking for any variations of ghost drivers charts that anyone would care to share.

 

The picture below is of the one that is used at The Raceway.biz in Melbourne, FL.

 

I assume other raceways have different forms of a ghost drivers chart, and hopefully, there are some that cover more than just the two scenarios in the picture.

 

I personally would prefer not to start a real driver in white or green because in white, you only drive one heat then sit out, and in green, you drive all but one heat then sit out.

 

Any help will be appreciated.

Since nobody has posted ghost driver charts, I've been creating some.  

 
I didn't fill in all of the cells in the charts (like was done on the chart in post #1) because it doesn't seem to be helpful.  
 
I think the only thing a race director needs to know is how many ghosts are needed and where to put them in the first heat.  Everything else takes care of itself.
 
At first glance it might not make much sense to create a chart that results in only one turn marshal, but if your raceway needs 4 marshals, and you have 3 volunteers, then the "1 Marshal" chart would be the one to use in order to get that 4th turn marshal needed.
 
I'll continue to post more of the charts as I get them done.
 
If you want to print the charts, you can download and print the PDF file so all three of the charts will print on one page.

thanks for doing this--have tried to get several raceways to do this for us with no results.

Buddy Houser and I created the table that Bill uses about 12 years ago at Buddy’s Slot Car Speedway in Jacksonville.

Buddy liked to run one race of 10 instead of two races of 5 but we rarely had any volunteers so we needed a way to insure we’d have marshals every heat.
