Season 20 car poll
« on: November 29, 2017, 07:58:17 PM »
You can vote for more than one car, and you can change your vote.

The round format is going to be three sprints:
  • Qualifying + Race 1
  • Race 2 in order of Race 1 finish
  • Race 3 in reverse grid order of Race 2 finish
There will be some fun runs coming up to give you a chance to try racing each car.

In addition
Every impact your car has will get a little bit of restrictor for the next race, and will remain for the rest of the round. This is to represent your team not being able to fix your car to 100% between races. It will only be mild - looking at past results, it would probably be a sliding scale of restrictor from 0% to 10% for impacts between 30 kph and 100 kph (capped at 10% for impacts at higher speeds). Most impacts are between 20 and 30 kph. This would be for car to car impacts (for both cars) and also impacts with barriers. This will add more tension to the racing and may make people be a little more cautious. I.e. there are consequences for hitting things with your car.

I voted for the Porsche and the BMW, because they gave the closest racing in my opinion, which is always what I prefer. One way you can look at the closeness of the racing is the "Busiest" stat for the last 4 races, which shows the smallest average gap to neighbouring cars, front and back.

The smallest average gaps were:
BMW - 1.90 secs
Porsche - 2.15 secs
Lotus - 3.61 secs
KTM - 6.40 secs

I preferred the Porsche because it gave close racing, but wasn't quite as easy as the BMW. It was easier for those around me to make mistakes, which lead to more position changes. Also, the tyres actually go off in the Porsche, whereas the BMW and Lotus tyres are much harder wearing without much degredation over the course of the race.
