    Odyssey2 Spin-out!, Barrier Track, Fastest Time - Sean Conner, 10 seconds

    Track impossible to clear in 10 seconds.

    How did we get here?

    Walter Day entered Conner's race onto the scoreboard under this Spin-Out track in 2010 upon discovery of the achievement in his personal archives, but it was a guess that proved incorrect.

    Conner's race conducted in 1983, but variation not created until 2006, and then Connor's time was entered in 2010.

    TG member Rage outlines how the inclusion of Conner's score came about, which was done with good intentions but has ultimately proved to be incompatible with the variation set-up.

    Please watch my submission video at the following link. I believe it's clear from the video that, based on the maximum speed of your car and the lay-out of the track, a 10 second completion time is only possible if someone is tracking two laps rather than three.

    The video evidence makes it clear that the time is only possible based on two, rather than three laps.
    We are accepting this dispute and removing the score. As always, thank you for the input.
