Not thats its likely to happen but bonus points would make racing more interesting, after all anyone could chose a car thats a bit slower and would give them the bonus points. If there is nothing like that then no reason for the quick guys not to simply pick the quickest cars and be 2 seconds or so a lap ahead of the others in the same car.  ;)

As is there really isnt much incentive to chose a slower car

Then don't make it an incentive. Make it a rule. You know who the fast drivers are from previous seasons and races. Top 8 - 10 drivers will use X car, everyone else use another car 2-3 seconds faster. DONE.

That's why I reckon use the 458 and the MP4 for group A (fast guys) and lambs and Gt3 RS for group B.

Using your lap times Marty, that's keeping a constant entity in selecting different cars of the same performance. If you use different drivers in different cars, there is too much variance in skill and drive style to be accurate.

If any of the slower guys get the top 3 cars it would give them more chance of running up front which would bring the racing closer but still some may find one car easier over others so it doesnt mean always the bottom half pace wise will be fastest in those. Whichever way it goes is fine my suggestion for the ranking was based on what gzero posted earlier, and the points bonus would be more to encourage quicker guys to go for slower cars. They would be more likely to still get these cars up near the front of the pack so could take advantage of a bonus and also if one chose the faster car then they would likely need very good results every race to score enough points which is why that sort of system of encouraging slower car choice could work best

I don't think bonus points should be awarded then. The slower drivers even in faster cars most likely will not produce the same lap times as a fast driver, therefore the driver/car offset is already applied. Giving the bonus points to faster drivers who are more likely to be in top 8 is only going to keep fast drivers ahead in the points and harder for the rest of the pack to achieve competitive points through the season.

I say keep with the ballast system and drivers need to learn to adjust.

why don't we just narrow the car choice down to the 458 and the MP4. Marty's best times with those cars are 2.36 - wouldn't that be a more fair choice between cars?

If we wanted to add a driver/car ranking system, then the slower guys can drive the Lambo or the GT3 RS. That way, the slower guys get a faster car, the faster guys gets a choice of 2 cars of equal times.

problem solved.

Marty - according to the RSR times you posted, the lambo is one of the bottom 3 slowest cars. With what you just suggested, you want now give bonus points for the faster cars? I put out a damn good time in the Lamborghini last night (2.35.750) and all of a sudden it's bonus points for all but the one I like.

I can understand if people don't want to keep changing cars, but if they're good drivers, they should be able to race anything.
Having said that, a good notice is required so that drivers who are changing cars can get some practice to dial in their car.

I'll sign up, I'm enjoying the Thursday nights so I'll see how we go for tuesdays :)

Shameless and I have been comparing a lot of different cars over a long time. We usually test on Nords due to the vast variety of corners, straights, climbs and slopes. You will find our theme is Old vs New and surprisingly, these have been the best matches. The old (Lotus 49, Cobra and yellowbird) are fast, loose and driving style is suited for those that like it raw. The New (Mclaren 650S, BMW and the SLS) offer better handling, later braking and tighter cornering.
Lotus 49 to the McLaren 650S
RUF Yellowbird vs Mercedes SLS
Cobra vs BMW M3 E92 Step 1

These matches, we think, will be worth a try in a full race environment.

THANK YOU so much for another series Phill :)

Considering I missed about 4 races earlier on, consistency is key and the GT40 was a great drive.

Despite a lonely final race, I knew I had to be either Pole or 2nd spot with a good start and thankfully it turned out well. The first few laps, I must of been a little nervous and didn't get my groove until about lap 6 on wards. Had a ferrari behind me that I was eyeing off and making sure I kept some distance. Most of the race, I just had to keep focus and ride out till the end.

See you all soon :)

is it a possibility that too much weight was applied? For the Praga, it's already a very sensitive car..

Ballast system works. I've copped some heavy ballast penalties and while it sucks, it can bring the racing a bit closer. The trouble is knowing how much weight is fair and the time it takes to configure it correctly.

I don't think any form of compulsory pit-stop or race-start delay is a better option.

I voted for MX5.

Less car setup means the cars will be similar. Even run a fixed setup if possible, that way it's more about driver skill rather than the car.

Also, don't make the races too short. Sprints are ok, but sometimes there is not enough time for recovery if you're caught up in a collision.

Cheers everyone for the race, Tight track and almost blind into some corners.

I'm chuffed I bagged a 1.49.8 - Don't drive it like you own it, drive it like you stole it! lol

3 restarts in the second race, bit annoying knowing how tight the track is. Granted I got off the line quickly to get mid field from near last and scraped through most of the carnage.

till next week :)

5 laps? make it at least 15 to be worth it!

Nice screenshot Wally - It was quite unpleasant seated in the GT40 going through that experience in VR!

Unfortunately after a few bumps, the pitting system is what really let me down. I spent almost 3 minutes trying to work out what was going on in the pits before I managed to refuel.

F1 im in :)
