Season 17 car poll - open wheelers
« on: May 06, 2017, 08:56:30 AM »
It will be a single-make series in the chosen cars (real open wheelers!), a 5 week season most likely starting May 23.


As usual, you can vote for more than one car.



I want to keep life simple... no comments about other cars to add to the mix please. This caters to the full spectrum of open wheeler types.


But I would like to hear what format you'd like - 1 hour races, two 30 min races, pitstops etc. My leaning would be towards a mix of both: 1hr races with a pit stop, mixed with 2 x 30 mins.

Lotus 72 is the last OW car we raced so even though I like it I wont vote for it again. If its been a whioe then maybe we need more OW seasons and not a fake prada product.  ;D

Format wise none of these cars had planned pit stops when they raced.

The exos was never raced but if stock it just has one hard compound slick. I would prefer races without forced stops if there was a modern f1 car then stops are the quicker way, if a race would be faster without a stop but you need to manage tyres. I think its better then having 30m races and 1hr races that are just split into 30 min stints.

In a 2 race format I would also prefer either 2x qualy or a reverse grid race 2, the current format of race one start order just makes it like the 1 hour 2x30 stints with a stop in the middle. Then a 1 hour race with stops makes all races pretty mich the same thing in both of those.

Any ideas with tracks? I guess some F1 circuits - but different to last season?

Yep, something suitable to the car, but I try to mix it up as well.

I've voted the 25 and the 49 simply because I struggle a lot with the others. With the 25 and 49 I still struggle but not quite as much  ;D

I prefer the 25 over the 49. It's a little more predictable than the 49, being less powerful. It's more like a little Skip Barber type of car. The 49 rear end can seem to get a mind of its own.
