Thanks for your replies. Not being into the historical details it never occurred to me that the short track might have been what was actually used in 1971, especially since SimRank implied that the "inaccuracy" of the Glen71 track layout was why it wasn't used for rank.
The second part of my inquiry in my original post with the attachment still stands. There must be something wrong with the implementation at SimRank for the "all chassis" screen to show as it does.
it seems that there're still some confusing about the different versions of Watkins Glen.Below again the two '71 tracklayouts we have in GPL.
The track was rebuilt in 1971, but was not ready in time (with the boot-section) for the CanAm race in july 1971, that's the reason why we have two versions of 1971.The final one with the boot-section and a beta without the boot-section.
The confusing with GPLRank was my fault!I haven't the final glen71 track in my GPL installation, only the proper beta version for the CanAm's and I named this beta track "glen71" in my installation, because I never cared of the other glen71.I didn't think about it as I submit my laptimes.
Sorry, my fault!
