So Comp Jet racers what do you think the chances are for you to get in ? After what I have been hearing it is going to be slim to none. I know what you are thinking here he goes again stirring the pot, but I have facts for you to back up my claim. Right now in the IERC there are two GN owners and one Comp Jet owner. To my understanding the driver/boat getting in to this years Hall of Champions from Inboard Endurance category will have only won 2 races. Yes one of the races was the Parker 300 but it was not a Divisional nor a National event, in fact it was a special event. He did not set a record in closed course racing or kilos. He also did not score as many points as our second place Comp Jet driver. Our high points winner in Comp Jet was able to pull 4 wins and win a National event, our 2nd place Comp Jet driver was able to set 2 records and pull off 2 wins.
1. An endurance race must be run on a closed course under one of the following formats.
A. 100 miles or more
B. 1 hour time duration.
C. 15 minute qualifying heat and 45 minute final.
D. Two (2) 30 minute heats with point accumulation to determine final order of finish.
E. Thirty (30) minute duration which may comprise two (2) fifteen (15) minute heats with point accumulation to determine final order of finish.
F. Fifteen (15) minute duration.
G. 5 miles.
H. Any combination of heats and/or finals when approved by the IERC as the format of a recognized racing series.RULE 13 • INBOARD ENDURANCE HALL OF CHAMPIONS SELECTION CRITERIA
1. The IERC will determine the nominee for the Hall of Champions from the drivers placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd in each class in the APBA Inboard
Endurance High Point standings at the end of the racing year.
The Hall of Champions requirements state the top three boats from the 3 classes and shouldn't the one with the most contribution and performance win the nomination? I am not real sure this is happening, being I have looked at the results and have really thought hard about this for the last 3 days. It has been stated that the Comp Jets don't really deserve to get into the hall. So we must do something about making a point system similar to the one they have in the Inboard categories. Mark cj169 and Ron cj511 worked very hard all season to accomplish what they did. Congrats to them both.
