Oh nothing to much in the way skins, more so a team points championship. So we have 22 drivers = 11 teams. Normal championship takes precedence with a team championship running as well. Just to keep some extra interest but it maybe to difficult to do. What ever points you score gets pooled together with your team mate which creates a team championship as well as normal championship. Maybe easier to do such a thing down the track if there is enough interest I guess.

Maybe we'll consider that for the future, once we see what extra features the game brings.

I think teams of 2 is a great idea. Might provide an opportunity to get together and help each other if you don't just have the better drivers all on each other's team.

Well, for now, I'll leave it up to you to form teams of two or three. I'll put up a separate post about this.

It would be good just to somehow have a practice server where we could all go to do some laps and talk about the meaning of life, etc.

Are you talking about at the start of race night, or the 24x7 server?

24X7 please
If you mean the server that has the booking - the one that runs other than race nights - then that becomes a pain, because you could have a 1 hour practice session, but then you can't join it until the long practice session is over and you can book again. Once they get rid of this painful booking system, I think life will be easier for everyone.

Yea the booking system is just awful

I just wanted to suggest maybe not for this season but for the future ones to implement a 10 minutes qual(3 laps) at Imola(or any track) and add 5 minutes to the race(25 minutes) in this way we can make the qual more thrilling, and the longer race would give us chances to use stategy  or recover from a mistake  or  spin for example...

eventually I` d love to see a hot lap for qual ,is working very well with other legues in iracing

this is only my opinion,,,

cheers guys

Thanks for the thoughts. It will all adapt as the game matures - e.g. hopefully with pitstops etc. We can certainly try longer races. It's just that some people need to start late to fit in with life and others need to finish early to fit in with the alarm clock.
