    Dispute Evidence / RationaleThe elapsed time for this race is not possible and likely a typo. The time is not showing correctly on this dispute form. A snip of the what the time actually is, as displayed on the track leaderboard is below.



    The fastest lap recorded by the same player is 1:10.668. The distance for the Easy difficulty race is 2 laps. The elapsed time for the best lap x 2 = 2:21.336, nine seconds slower than the time listed on the leaderboard.



    The race always starts from a stop position. So the first lap is always several seconds slower than the subsequent lap, since those laps start from a moving position. The difference between the first lap and subsequent laps will vary depending on car class. For the S class, it probably ranges from 6.5 to 9 seconds. This would estimate the elapsed time for a two lap race would likely range from ~ 2:28 to 2:30.5.

    I posted a submission for this track. Please use the link to view the performance as a comparison to the time that I'm disputing. And to keep it on point, I'm disputing the time and not the player. This is likely a typo or a time applied to the wrong track. I have nothing but respect for Frankie as a skilled competitor.
