2002's Final Statistics - Zak's Analysis

2002 was the first complete season at ZakStunts. Altough lots of things chnaged through the season, most of the rules were quite steady. Here you can find lots of  huge and intresting data tables, performance calculations, and nice graphs about the year. Page is quite enormous, so please be patient. :)

All the graphs are based on the scores without the CPU racers, so it may differ somewhere from the ones you can find on the site. Also there may be any mistypes, please forgive me :)
Our first graph shows an intresting thing: Number of the real (non-CPU) drivers each month. Irt was never less than 12, and this is a success, we also reached 20. I hope we'll have even more racers in 2003 :)
 

you can clearly see that in the summer and in December there was less activity than usual. This is normal I guess.

Just to make everything clear, in the next table I enlist each racer's position on each track, without the CPU racers. This was the base for all tables and graphs below:

Well, this was it. The next section is about racer performance, and how a racer's performance changed during the season. I used the following method:
the winner's performance is 100%. the last driver's performance = 100/racer number that month. Second from below gets twice this amount, and so on. So it's equally divided throughout the scoreboard. In the next table you can read each drivers performance each race, the SUM of these (bot really intresting), and the average performance (SUM divided by number of races). This is quite similar to average ranking, but it shows a percentage, not a ranking. Why is this table here, altough it doesn't show the real skills? You can find the answer below. :)

Ok, that was it. Now the intresting stuff. I can show the change of performance in the factor of time for those racers, who raced a lot. It's quite nice on a graph, and you can learn a lot from it. So here it is, the performance history graph for those who raced 10, 11 or 12 races through the year:

and for those who raced 6, 7, 8 or 9 races through the season:

Quite impressive. I was curious, how would have looked this year's seasonal rankings, if used another system more similar to this year's pro system, and I created one. Here I summarized the performance percentages for each racer, and divided them by 12 (number of races this year). I was really shocked, because this table is quite similar to the final scoreboard, altough I thought it'll differ a lot. Here you are. Of course those who raced more have much better results:

So much about performance. And another very inreesting topic as the last subject, how the Seasonal Scoreboard changed through the year. Here you can find a nice table containing each racer's SUM each month, and below some comparison graphs:
