I like the ability to see both types of chart - laptimes and positions.  :thumbup:

The change had me confused for a few minutes -- I thought everything had gotten scrambled or corrupted.  But I figured it out and I think having the laptime displayed is a good improvement.

I just noticed this  :duh:  I really should concentrate sometimes   :oops:    

Well done Ed  :thumbup:   I think I have improved my best time at each track so far, great way to improve ranks chasing these Aliens  :P

edit 2: the chart doesn't work in firefox for me but when I load it in IE it works, I still don't like it though.
Does it still not load in Firefox? I have no problems on my own (Mac) version of Firefox. Are you running a script-blocker by any chance?

I have Firefox set to automatic updates and it works OK now. Maybe something was fixed or I may have been running something that interfered with it at the time, seemed to be a problem for a few days but the problem went away  :idunno:  But, yes, it is working in Firefox for me now.  :thumbup:

How does this track promotion thing work then? I've just submitted a new time for Opatija in the Brabham and it doesn't appear, do i have to wait for it to be updated?
:idunno:

Also i can only see a chart. Is there a way to look at a table of names and times?

Ahhh i see, thanks Sven.

Thanks Pedro. It took a long time to get the feel back after not driving GPL for a while but it was really fun to throw the Brab around such a great track  :thumbup:

Great time Stewart.  I was wondering if someone would break 2 minutes.  I came frustratingly close, but didn't manage it.  I might take another crack later today to see if I can.  I don't think I can find another 8 tenths to challenge you though.

Cheers,
Dave

The standings are updated once every six hours.

There are two possible views. It defaults to a laptimes chart, but choose 'positions' and it will show the positions development of the track promotion. On the right hand side the current standings are shown with laptime and chassis for each driver.

Hope you like it. Please post ideas for improving the feature.

Thanks Dave, its such a hard track to nail all the sectors. Each sector seems to have a tricky corner in it that you must get right to go sub 2 minute. I was trying to get into the 58's but it just wouldn't happen.

It seems that the positions option doesn't appear at home. I'm on my work laptop using Firefox on Windows XP and i now see what you mean but my home PC has IE9 and Windows 7 and if i remember correctly it just says please wait for the chart to load there.

This is such a great concept Ed that its lured me back into GPL ;)
