Please only vote if you belong to a club with more than 5 members.

I'm sorry if this seems unfair to home racers or those with (exceptionally) small clubs, but it's just something that I would like to know...

I know that the age groups are not equally spaced, but I suspect that the faster drivers will be near the bottom end of the scale (younger).

So what you need to do, is decide who you think the fastest driver is at your club, and vote for the age bracket that they are in.

Oh, and please put a reply stating your club name. If your club name has already been put down then please do not vote. Thanks!!

Thanks for your time.

One of the motorcycle masgazines used to sell a T shirt that said "the older I get, the faster I was!"

Without magnets, 20(26) - 30.

Two reasons, still got them reactions, and also will have good experience.

With magnets, 1-15.

Two reasons again, fast reactions, and blind faith as to wether the car will stay on or not.

Interestingly the top driver at our club is top with and without a magnet and although in his thirties, the next closest racer is 13 and may well take the title this year...`Flying Ads`.

The last two Champions of the Slot-Tech Porsche Open Challenge, which is a national event were 16 - 20 years. Can't understand why there's only me who's voted this age (so far).
Although, I'm just into that age bracket and starting to loose abit of interest... So I may swing more into the slightly older age range - 30ish.

Tough call, but an interesting topic!

I would have though the people in the 40 age range would be quickest because they would have great reflexes, huge experience and would know how to mod their car for ultimate performance.

Although the posted comments should be interesting in their variety of opinions, few clubs have enough regular members for poll results to be meaningful in any way. Many clubs will possibly not even have representation of certain age groups at all or may have only single members in any particular category. So take apparently indicated poll figures with a LARGE pinch of salt.

At my own club, although the frequent winners are mostly in the 40s age group, the reason for this is simply that the majority of members happen to be in that age group! So that assessment of results is almost inevitable on a purely statistical basis. Having said that, we still get winners from all age groups and it is impossible to draw a meaningful generalisation of ability, potential or actual, on age alone.
