The results are now OFFICIAL. Good job everyone for making it safely around and with little and no impact to our desert. Very good.
Having said that, when we checked the "trackers" we found some very interesting things:
1. Some of you need to practice more with your "Navigator" so that you don't blow the turns and miss the course.
2. You also need to get back to the point of exit, when you miss the course. You cannot cross through virgin land.
3. If you are lost, as a few of you were in various sections of the course, you cannot try to go back against the course, to get back where you missed the course.
Several of us, were going through the "trackers" and were wondering if we did something wrong with the course layout. There were several racers who were right on the course, even though, they too, missed the turns at several points.
One thing that was obvious to three of us, none of the racers tried to cheat, they were just lost.
Because we had a few new racers to our desert, we also considered that.
At the end, we decided NOT to penalize anyone--thistime--but to give warnings to those who miss the course: YOU MUST GET BACK TO THE POINT OF EXIT.
In almost every ase, we also took into consideration that those that missed the course took a lot more time than what we would orinarily penalize.
Therefore, our decicion not to penalize anyone.
PRO PAYBACK WILL BE GOING OUT, AS WELL AS THE CERTIFICATES WE POSTED BEFORE THE EVENT.
We will see everyone at our next event, the PURE "300" - Race #2 - April 18, 2020. - Course Rating = 5.9 (10 = Freeway)
