Server is up, with ballast set by the official handicapper, who was even kind enough to find a prime number for Bacchulum.
I will modify the ballast on the night if it doesn't work out

Enjoy you surprises :)

instead of enduro or the usual sprint round does anyone have any suggestions or want to do something different like maybe 3 or 4 5 lap races only or a team based round maybe where the first and last in practice or qual are a team and second and second last etc.  then I could test that for an idea for a future season

What about team driver swaps? Say, driver 1 does 2 laps while driver 2 stays in pits, then driver 1 pits, says on TS "go", and driver 2 does 2 laps. You could do quite a few driver swaps with short stints.

Everyone could start off the line, with all the driver 2's pitting on lap 1.

Sounds like it could be some fun

I think you may have been a bit heavy handed with the ballast Phil, after 4 laps even I was quicker than Bacculum  ;D

I also like Wally's idea, but I think Silverstone is too short a track for driver swaps, plus I need at least 2 laps to even start to feel at ease in a car.
Should we finish this season with the status quo and try some of these ideas over the xmas break. I am also really looking forward to Brand's GP it is one of my alltime favourite  sim racing tracks , I would have clocked up over a thousand laps at this track over the years.

Driver swaps sounds like fun but also sounds like it would be a clusterf*ck if we actually tried it  ;D

driver swap sounds great but I really don't want to sit in my car for a few mins not moving lol.. I might fall asleep at the wheel.

Why don't we just have  2 compulsory pit stops .. say 1 for fuel and 1 must be tires. When you do them is up to you.

Isn't ballast here defined by championship position? Just did a few laps and saw Mael was way faster, then noticed he had 100kg and I had 140kg yet he's 3rd and I'm 8th?
