Thursday Poll: Photo finish?

Now that we’ve announced the plans for an entirely upgraded timing system at raceday 2010, it’s time to take bets on how close the race is going to be this year. ¬†Will our high-tech digital photo finish equipment come in handy to measure the fine line between 1st and 2nd, or will it be so much of a blowout that we could time this thing with an hourglass?

For some perspective, the recent margins of victory in the men’s races:

  • 3.95 sec SDC over Fringe
  • 0.15 sec PiKA over SDC
  • 3.21 sec PiKA over Fringe
  • 2.49 sec PiKA over PiKA B
  • 2.30 sec PiKA over Fringe
  • 1.65 sec PiKA B over Spirit
  • 1.28 sec PiKA over Fringe
  • 0.25 sec PiKA over Fringe
  • 0.83 sec Fringe over PiKA
  • 4.24 sec PiKA over Fringe


How big will the margin of victory be in the 2010 men's races?

  • 1 - 2 sec : closer than the 10 year average (41%, 17 Votes)
  • < 1 sec : within a buggy length at the line (34%, 14 Votes)
  • 2 - 4 sec : comfortable, but not gaudy (20%, 8 Votes)
  • > 4 sec : blowout; total domination (5%, 2 Votes)

Total Voters: 41
