Re: [DML] New and improved Millennium Concours format



Hi Andy,

You pose a really good question and I'm sorry I didn't proactively 
address it since it is so fundamental to the way the program 
operates.

A lot of research was put into setting up the new format and the 
points threaholds, including review of all the historical scores to 
see how the new format would have played out if it had been applied 
to previous competitions.

As you would expect, in some cases no cars would have qualified for 
the new "stainless" level while in other cases more than one car 
would have qualified.

After careful scrutiny of all the historical scores, I'm convinced 
that the new thresholds for the three levels corresponds to a 
reasonable arrangement that results in cars at the various levels 
being recognized. I do not expect the top cars being any less "top" 
(the bar might actually be a hair higher based on review of the 
historical scores).

The thresholds were not selected without research into the 
historical numbers and establishing confidence that they correspond 
to the levels they reflect.
