I'm just going to call it:
A Ferrari 599xx EVO season (feel the need for speed),
Followed by a Lotus 3-Eleven season.
That's strange. :-\ ???
They don't sound like open wheelers.........
Who said anything about open wheelers?
The wheel will turn... boom boom.

Both good, but must ask, what was the point of the poll considering neither of these were even on it? Lol
Yeah, this poll idea didn't really work out, I don't think. Maybe it shows in general what's a popular idea, but there are too many future possibilities.[/size]

You're outvoted. Revel in this period of simplicity, the burden of choice lifted!

Maybe because this poll was started in August 21, 2016 and probably long forgotten by most. ;)

Ahh, did not realise it’s an ancient poll, thought it was current for next season

If I can be completely honest, I have found that the most enjoyable seasons were those in not excessively fast race cars, preferably without too much electronics, but it is not mandatory. E.g., the 1970s F1 season, the Maserati GT4 and Porsche cup seasons. Road cars and trackday cars do not seem to give the same race pace, and some open-wheelers seemed to be a bit too complicated for some (perhaps most) of us. Even this current season is not too bad---it's just the format that is a bit tricky, as traffic is huge and the car is a bit too fast for it. It worked ok with the Japanese cars ot the GT86, but not so much with these. NOTE: all three seasons above were pretty regular races, with not so many artifices. I don't know... maybe I am the only one, but I really enjoyed fighting on pace and the occasional battle, rather that trying to squeeze through traffic.

BTW: I am back in Sydney and will try to join for next race---worst case scenario, the one after that. I am not very confident my PC problems are solved, but apparently you all say I should not spend money right now, so I am holing on... I just hope it does not ruin my Tuesdays.

Hey Wally, not fussy,  just about anything that DOESN"T include a reverse grid and I'm in.

Maybe like BTCC a reverse grid of the top 10. I think we've done something like that before.

Second the no reverse grid or top 10 reverse only, just causes carnage. Monday ROOZ fun run was reverse top 8 and that worked quiet well

I don't do reverse grids all that often, but they never seem to work out that well. We have also done reverse top 10 (or whatever), and then the guy finishes 11 complains that it's not fair, because they just missed out on pole for the next race. There's always someone who complains about something, so I have to develop a bit of a thicker skin about complaints and ignore most things that aren't crucial flaws.


But yeah, fill reverse grids will die a natural death, I think.

Reverse grids do work well in slow cars, The BMW might be a touch to rapid combined with tricky tracks which caused a bit of chaos at times.  ;D  Also depends on what the goal is of the races. Is it to find out who's the quickest or to have some fun racing?

For myself, I know who the quickest drivers are, that has been established from public races, practice servers and past races. And unless GB is driving, the driver would never be able to claim the alien title.

Thanks Freezer. Yeah, I think you have to keep mixing it up to keep it interesting. You can't just do the same format/rules week after week.

When I first started with you guys, it was the Escort and had restrictor applied to the faster guys/winners to give the slower guys a run at the front, I liked the idea and signed up. I also signed up for this season knowing the rules/conditions and have enjoyed both series. I also like that you are thinking outside the box, trying to give a bit of variety and bring a little bit of equality to the field. Not every plan will be 100% successful but don't give up, I might not be as encouraging if I'd been caught up in some the big incidents, but then you'd just think...sore loser lol. What I'm trying say is keep it up, it's good fun and much better than having the same people win all the races all of the time, thanks for all the effort you put in to keep this stuff going

Agreed always appreciate the effort you put into everything Wally. Changing things up and trying new things. Like Bueller said we all know the format and rules when we sign up. There has been a lot more complaining recently on voice chat mid race which I'd like to see stop. If people have issues it's best to wait till the end of the race than the distract everyone else.
