Same day always would be better but I'm happy for the rotation to stay if it means more people get to compete.

On a different note, when I finalize everything, once the season is up and running can I get help from people for things like wiki editing etc? I don't have much time to myself these days, and any help would be much appreciated.

I can help out in small ways but won't have time to do race result tables and the like.

Basically anything but an acronym.

Just spotted on the Wiki:

Event Format[edit]
Events start with a practice session opening at 7:30pm. Once all confirmed drivers are connected and ready, they will advance to a ten minute qualifying session. All cars will be on track together for qualifying, starting from the pits. This session will set the grid for the first race.

Race one will be a 40 minute endurance race*.

Race two will be a 20 minute sprint race, with a grid reversed from the results of race one.

Points are awarded equally in both races*.

*Subject to club feedback


I think 40/20 is a good split; 40's a decent race length and slightly shorter than what VM does.

I feel that points should be equal for both races. I remember when we did the F1 seasons that it didn't feel right that a decent performance in the sprint could mean "nothing" compared to the longer race. Both types of race require a similar degree of skill and focus to finish in a top position and should be rewarded as such.

That sounds good to me - although I'd knock 5 minutes from each race to bring the overall length of the event down a bit.

I'm wondering why we'll be using the longest version of each track except Brands, where we'll be using the Indy layout. Wouldn't it make more sense to use the full GP layout?

Hopefully a good fictional circuit (Trial Mountain ;)) will be the missing race :)

I'd rather we used short versions of circuits if I'm honest. These cars will just feel lost on big tracks with long straights.

Just putting some posts together - all will be revealed shortly . :)

Nothing is set in stone yet, so everybody will have the chance to chip in with their thoughts and help fine-tune the season.

Please try them on track before judging, and bear in mind, as with every series I create, the emphasis is on pack raving.

EDIT: to be honest Spa could probably come out.
