It is that time again, last list was in 2019.  There have been 5 Challenges since I updated the list I have compiled:

  1. I can guarantee it is not perfectly accurate
  2. The list is based on the number of entries, not the absolute number of cars that have been to an event. If a car was run more than one year(or twice at the same event), it will be counted for each entry.
  3. A plus sign means the vehicle was in the "Race" class in 2001
  4. I skipped the cars in 2015 that ran in exhibition as part of the challenge anniversary, and any of the over budget entries in the newer events.

Interesting trivia:

  1. There have been 55 3-Series BMW entries so far.  E30s are the most popular, although none have been entered since 2018.   
  2. 2024 was the first year an AWD car won the event.  The last time a FWD car won was 2013(Congrats SDAC!).  Most winners are RWD.   
  3. There have been 5 Mercedes entries, all separate models, and the only year more than one showed up was 2019.
  4. AFAIK(I could have missed something), Ford (sort of) holds several records for longest gap between challenge events.  The Suprang holds the record for longest gap for a specific car between events, competing in 2004 and 2005, then not again until 2022.  The Ford Taurus is the longest model name gap between events.  A 2nd gen competed in 2005, and the next to show up was the Ecoboost Police Interceptor Taurus in 2022.  The 2nd gen(US) Ford E scort holds the record for longest gap in a single generation of a model showing up in 2004 and not returning until 2021.  Interesting to note the gap is the same for all three.

I absolutely love how the makes are jumbled. Do not correct it.

Too late, fixificated.

Besides, if you figure out the pattern, you can recreate the incorrect list laugh

I have converted it to Excel if you want it.

drop me a msg and I will send it to you.

Or create your own using the Left(x,find(":",x)-1) and Right(x,2) formulas on the list as posted. x is the raw data posted to the spreadsheet, for each line.

Ahh, it's a relic.  In the older lists, I had an asterisk for each time a entry had won an event.  Partway through updating the list, I realized the asterisks didn't survive the conversion from Excel to OpenOffice, so I decided to be lazy, and just remove them from what I had added in the last few days.  Looks like I missed one.  smiley
