Information on Seat Racing by Duncan Holland
This relates to my posting of an excel sheet for use with a pair matrix, and our poll on selection.
He includes some important points:

- Fit the test to the training (and events) at the time - longer in winter, shorter in summer.
- Seat racing assumes athletes have comparable fitness, skill, honesty and motivation.
