All VCS Series Results Provisional
Today the VCS experienced errors when calculating the series points for many classes.
We do not know yet all the classes and which positions were affected.
All affected competitors will be contacted directly when we have had time to review thoroughly in the next few days. (We do not expect any update tonight)
We take the calculation of the series points very seriously, however the double checking processes we have in place failed this year.
Two separate issues affected us that had not been uncovered in our earlier checking;
The first issue involved a software bug that replicated the same result for each heat and final at Ballarat, the results of other rounds were not affected.
The second issue may involve a difference between the DNF rule the series has run in the past, and what is listed in the sporting regulations.
As a series we feel truly awful about this situation and cannot apologise enough to the competitors who will be disappointed by today’s result or any changed result.
We will do whatever we can to rectify this situation, but first we need to finish the investigation of how many results were affected.
Please hold on to your prizes and trophies for the time being until we have had time to review affected classes and form a solution.
I personally apologise again for the errors made today.
