Season 19 thoughts
« on: September 20, 2017, 08:11:16 PM »
With the Excort season drawing to a close, it's time to start thinking about the next season. I'd be keen to try a multiclass season, with something like these two options:
  • Historic: Porsche 962 C Long Tail/Mercedes-Benz C9 1989 LM/Porsche 911 GT1-98 versus Porsche 908 LH/Ford GT40/Ferrari 330 P4
  • Modern: Porsche 919 Hybrid 2015/Toyota TS040 Hybrid 2014/Audi R18 e-tron quattro 2014 versus some comparable GT3's
I see it being like an hour race, set up so that the faster class will lap the slower class several times. I'd use ballast and/or restrictor for certain makes to try to get them closer in terms of performance. One thing I'd like to achieve somehow is fairly balanced numbers in each class, i.e. I wouldn't want to see everyone in GT3's with only a couple of LMP1 cars.
What do you reckon?

We're long overdue a multi-class season and I'm inclined to vote for the modern one.
Between Thursdays and the Escort season, even I'm all historic-ed out. :o

Modern version for me too. All the cars are really close in year and spec, so I'd hope only the tiniest amount of weight/restrictor would do the trick.

While I do prefer the older cars personally I feel like the modern car season would work better.

Nobody puts Mael in the corner.

Now armco's That's a different matter!

If we going to do multi-class races how about requiring teams to be split into the two classes?  It may help to balance the class numbers.

I'm not really worried about the class splits.
In the WEC, there's only 8 LMP1's (at best) in a field of over 50 cars, so if we get more than that were ahead of the FIA. ;)
So as long as we hit 1:4, I think it would OK. 8)
