I added an option for the 911 RSR.

To change your vote, you have to remove your vote, and then re-vote for everything you like, which isn't a bad thing as it refreshes your current opinion.

Can you add the Porsche Cayman GT4 in? I think they'd make an awesome car for a season

Nice enough car but it really isn't much different to the one we're driving now...

That's true, but bear in mind that this isn't a poll for the next season, it's just a general poll to gauge what people wouldn't mind racing at some point in the future.

I wonder how it would go against the maserati gt4..   but I do find the cayman gt4 quite different..

I'd like to see a season with the cobra vs the bmw me e92 and the lotus evora s ( i think it was step1)

911 RSR - 1972. Not mid-engined, so doesn't count for you?

When the Porsche 962 comes out we will have three Group C cars.
The answer: -80538738812075974³ + 80435758145817515³ + 12602123297335631³ = 42

Maybe we should just add the full car list and see how it goes, the thing is there are so many good official cars out now that anything will be fun.

Id like some form of mixed class racing and for the can am we could do that along with the 911RSR. Or possibly Moby Dick which is a similar type boat but a bit closer in performance to the 917. There is still the Sauber c9, coming 787B, Porsche 919 red pack f1 cars so much to chose from that in the end I think youd be better voting for a type of car then specific cars.

Once the vote for the type of car is decided then you could vote specific cars. For example have classes, Modern road, Historic Road, Modern GT, Historic GT, Modern OW, Historic OW but even there you could probably come up with 20 options. So in the end it will come down to the executive Wally vote and we race whatever was close in polls and picked by our friendly dictator. :)

I'll always rotate broadly through the "types" of cars, such as single-seaters, road cars, GT cars, track day cars etc etc. Then within each type, I'll put up polls with a few of the popular options.

We're a real mixed bag league - i.e. we don't just always race GT3 cars or single seaters. Variety is the spice of life :)

One season, I'd like to try the idea of each driver nominating a round that they will get double points in, at the start of the season. You might choose a track you do well at, or a round when you know others are going to be away. Your "power play" round wouldn't be wasted if you missed that round for some reason - you'd be able to nominate another round. That would put pressure on you to do well in your nominated round, with double points at stake.
