It seems an unnecessary theory---slow cars give closer racing because the limit is not much faster that driving badly. This seems a much more parsimonious explanation.
parsimonious! I love it! This has bubbled up into my "most favourite words", thanks grat.  :-*

Proposed selection of cars for a Thursday season based on hp per kg

Alfa 155 V6         2.50 kg/hp

Lotus 2 eleven         2.65 kg/hp

Merc 190 Evo II      2.64 kg/hp

Mazda RX7 Tuned      2.96 kg/hp

BMW M3 E30 DTM      2.70 kg/hp

The performance of these cars can also be altered with selection of tyres by limiting some to Street tyres only, Server defined.

The concept of this selection is for the faster drivers to select the slower cars to allow close racing for all with no ballast.  Some form of retribution will be applied to drivers who ignore the spirit of the racing in order to win.  I am sure Phil with help from others will be able to devise a suitable disincentive.

I would like to throw open the selection of tracks (with a maximum lap time of  2min 30s) to all drivers. Good MOD tracks welcome, Mills Park comes to mind.  I think 8 weeks would be good, with a break in the middle.  There are plenty of 1988 tracks available from NoGrip.

All comments welcome.

nice season Denis!

The GT40 is a great wild ride around here, but it's pretty easy to slide out into the rails and get bounced into the track. Will have to be careful.

I have enjoyed the couple of laps done here so far, not sure on others' timing, but I have 10 seconds to find if I want to see Bacch!

Race 1, start 1, almost managed to get through the tangles and just caught a richocheting car as the restart was called, had a good place :)
Start 2, picked up a PB, so that was good, but out classed and stumbled a couple of times on the closing laps. next week!

PS: Love the GT40!  :D

The magic of Porsche engineering was at full chat in the early 1950s when the upstart sports car company revealed its remarkable and groundbreaking flat-four engine with four overhead camshafts, two per side.

Designed by Ernst Fuhrman, the complex engines were small in displacement but mighty in high-revving output, and they quickly earned Porsche the reputation of a giant killer on international race tracks at the top of the competition game.

The 22nd annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida honors those unique racing machines March 12 in a special competition class of Porsche 4-Cylinder Giant Killers, featuring a display of such four-cam-powered cars as the 550 Spyder, 718, RSK and RS60.

“The four-cam, the 550 Spyder and the 718, is where Porsche’s ‘giant killer’ legend begins,” Bill Warner, founder and chairman of the Amelia Island Concours, said in a news release. “We’re honored to have the 1960 Sebring winning RS60 confirmed for the 2017 Amelia. This is one of the most important cars that launched Porsche on its current course earning Porsche its reputation as a ‘giant killer’.” Read more...
