View Full Version : World record qualifying times

I know that lap total world records must
be done with a full field at the beginning
of the race. What about world record
qualifying qualifying times? Must they be
done with a full field of racers also?

Gary it seems to me that since qualifying is done individually the number of participants in the event should have no bearing on the acceptance of any record qual. time that may be posted. Case in point, recently, at a well known raceway up north, issues with the lap counter precluded race laps being considered for a record yet the qulifying times stood. It only made sense for it to go that way.

If anything getting a qualifying record is harder with a smaller field (track conditions). The amount of entries should have no bearing on it. I think it should count, as long as it is done before a race.
