Thought I'd pose the question here at SRMZ as in a GP67 grind yesterday at Estoril with the UKGPL clan, there was a near dead heat finish with but 1/1000s the margin between P3 and P4. In the images below showing shots from TV1 and TV2, Clive Gardner is in the BRM and I in the Red Ball Special. Three frames are involved. Two show the cars two frames from registering the finish of the lap. Two show the first frame where the lap is shown completed. Speeds were 165-169mph which for one millisecond translates to just shy of three inches(say 70mm).
Are there actual instances of true dead heats?
The screen shots plus the readout in GPLRA...

You're invited to join the Lange Ringnacht (Long Night of the Ring), hosted by EOLC.
On Saturday 17 December 2016, we meet at 19.00 h in the EOLC chatroom of VROC. The name of the race server is EOLC1. We'll race at Nürburgring. At about 19:05, a 15 minute long warm-up session will begin, with race 1 following immediately.
All in all, there are seven regular races, each 3 laps long. That gives you the chance to drive all GPL chassis during the Long Night of the Ring! Shift R everywhere allowed without penalty!
The starting order in each grid is determined by our gridtool. Fast drivers start from the back, slower ones start up at front: For race 1, (an estimation of) your GPLRank handicap is considered. For the other races, your (current) position in the standings of the Night of the Ring will decide the matter.
The results of the seven races are used to calculate a ranking. The points for position at finish are 20 - 17 - 15 - 14 - 13 - ...- 2 - 2 - 1 - 1
There are no extra chassis points, but best result you achieve with each chassis gives double points. I.e. if you drive every chassis, all you results are doubled!
If, after the seven regular races have been completed, there are still pilots willing to drive a few laps, a full-length PRO-GP will be started, concluding the Long Night of the Ring.
Everyone who wants to take part may sign up in the forum of eolc in this topic. You can also write to firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. It would be a help if you mention your GPLRank handicap. This will make it easier for me to make grid.txt, a file we need for the reversed grid.
We have room for 19 drivers. In 2015, sixteen drivers completed the 7th race.
The results of 2015 are found here.
