Yes, I am pretty sure me and Neil both made 20 laps with Neil finishing a few seconds before me. That's also in agreement with my and Neil's Strata data.

Sorry mate, rules is rules and points is points. And what do rules mean? Blazers!

Actually the rules about tandems were thrashed out some years ago by my esteemed predecessor, Mr Setter of Yorkshire. There are never enough tandems to form a class on their own so the simplest way to allow them to compete is to treat them as a single bike with a single rider. It was thought that the benefit of the extra power was pretty much balanced by the extra weight, fatter wheels, etc so there's no unfairness to other riders with no friends.

Could we change the times to those of the master timer:
Do we have the equivalent for the other three races or are we going with the original times?

The other 3 races are good timing-wise as far as we know. So the times for the other 3 races stay unchanged and we can keep the original times and lap counts. The very first race even has full video corroboration that I am going to enter for the Cannes Film Festival - it is very arty.
 
Thanks to the race organisers: John, Dave, Alan, and Netty.
 
It was great to see the Tandem whizzing round, the trike, and the 4-wheeler too.
