Oldest NOL winner
Youngest NOL winner
Highest win percentage

Most seconds - don't know, but wouldn't be surprised if it's Simon.

Most NOL races attended - I've run in 292 (out of a possible 334). Don't think anyone would have done more, although I'd guess Bruce and Jim would be above 250?

Oldest winner - Tash in last year's sprint champs (turned 45 shortly afterwards). Perhaps surprisingly, no M40+ has won an NOL race (Warren and Grant, both of whose last wins came at 39, have got closest).

Youngest winner - Hanny and Tim Robertson both won races in the year they turned 17. Hanny's win was in March so I suspect she's youngest (I don't know when Tim's birthday is; his win was in September).

Highest win percentage - probably Ralph Street (6 wins from 8 starts). Of those who've done a reasonable number of races I suspect it's Hanny.

By the way, no-one's done a clean sweep in a season - Julian got closest in 2010, winning all but one race (the slightly infamous 'microscopic boulders' WOC long trial at Belanglo).

who's got the most nol starts of the women? and what about cumulative points? and scoring races?

Now that I've got most of the results in a standard format it should be possible for someone to get them into a database to do those types of calculations.

I suspect you'd be up there in the most starts list for the women - those like Jo, Tracy and Tash who've been around for longer have also had significant chunks of time out. Jenny would probably be up there too.

More likely Susanne. She was in at the very beginning, before SA even had its own team.

Well... this is my year to break that M40 drought given I've just hit that age range. Just let me know of the next race where 80% of the field doesn't turn up (the upper portion that is).
