Yep, gotta slow the fastest guys down by 4 or 5 seconds. The bigger the spread of lap times, the higher the ballast.

Good to see GB and me are Ballast free, but that's kind of where the system breaks down a little if people do miss some races and come in with no ballast vs 100+kg against guys that I can normally run a similar pace to and GB generally beats everyone. I wonder if maybe first race starters should get at least 50% max ballast or something. Even the first race of the season it may be worth all starting on say 100kg ballast then people get adjusted + or - as needed, probably not for this season but it may be worth considering for future seasons if running ballast.

I think Marty and GB should start off every season with at least 50% max ballast period  :P

The first round is always a bit ”wild” ballast wise, but it settles down quickly. We used this same system in netKar for years to good effect.

Yes Marty, see Rolz's ballast thread.

Race 1 might be a bit of a challenge, but you'll no doubt drop ballast for race 2.
At Imola, you set the 2nd fastest lap time out of 18 racers with 66kg!

And in other news... looking at past FR3.5 times and other stats, I've given Marty 100 kg and Guybrush 130 kg.

Also, Marty has stepped into team Double G Racing, partnering G0RGAK, in place of Gratulin.

That sounds like a biased opinion to me!
