    confused Dont Understand.....

    Here is a video of me racing a Vectra Elite 2.8 V6 Turbo Automatic with the EDS 305 BHP remap (same power as my VXR)

    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=qooWhpdWd4c

    But... when I came round to talk with the guys, they all saw the readout and it beat me...

    I got 15 seconds and he got 14.8 seconds ??

    On the video, it looks like I won... how can this be ??

    Only thing I can think is that he started later than you did.

    ... so although you beat him over the finish line, it's possible he got a better time.

    Having said that, you were faster over the finish, so not sure how that's possible.

    you beat him by more than 0.2sec so they did not get the print-outs mixed up...

    Thats the thing... it was the last run of the day and I didnt bother walking down to the office to get the last printout

    The times were read out to me from a photo that one of the lads had taken (although I didnt see the picture for myself).

    It wasnt until I got home and viewed the video myself that I thought it was really strange.

    Good job I've got the video evidence, nobody would believe you. When the guys were telling me the Elite had beated me I wondered if they were talking about the same race as I'd just had, as it didnt look that way from where I was sitting ... and then the video footage.... very strange
