Skip qual with random grid would be nice. Also, could we instigate a safety car process for those who will inevitably crash. Will give them a chance to rejoin the tail of the pack.

The crashfests that have been predicted on Thursday nights do not seem to eventuate  :) :) :) ( high standards of driving and not racing for sheep stations attitude probably helps). With this in mind I was thinking 10min Qual, 10 laps 1 st. race and 12 laps 2 nd. race reverse grid, this track is not as demanding on the driver as others we have raced in this car. These lengths of races should also allow the natural order of things to eventuate 8).

NB this reply has been sent using a WIFI hotspot as my NBN FTTP connection is down, I am just hoping it is fixed before tonight.

My suggestion was not about there being a crashfest rather that it is quite easy to miss a braking point and end in a paddock or wall or whatever. If that occurred in a real race there would be a safety car. I realise we will have no damage so that minimises the delay caused by a crash.

I agree about missing a braking point. I do not think they were using safety cars back when these cars were racing, I always like to relive the actual conditions of the day if possible.

Congratulations Bacchulum  on the championship. It's a nice one to win I think in memory of Bruce. I hope everyone enjoyed it.

Also well done to Wally with second in the standings :)


Shortly after his victory Bacchulum has these words to say to the press

Bacchulum has said securing another championship is an achievement he is enjoying equally as much as his first. Speaking after the Longford race he declined to make any further comment on the allegations of tax avoidance made in the Paradise Papers.
 
“It feels good walking into the paddock as a world champion,” said Bacchulum who also said he had received more than 300 messages of congratulation. “It feels like the first time. I don’t know why, but it feels so fresh and so new, it feels great.”

Since taking the title Bacchulum has been one of the high-profile personalities identified in the Paradise Papers; the leak revealed he avoided a $6.3m GST bill when importing a private jet. His team have stated that the matter is in the hands of his lawyers and he would make no further comment. “My team released a statement and I don’t have anything else to add,” he said.

“The championship doesn’t really change anything except that you have the number one next to your name. I am still a racing driver at heart and I have lots of fight left in me.

Well done Bacchulum

Congratulations Bacchulum.
I was aided by generally being without restrictor, but I'll take it :)
Thanks Phil.

Congratulations Bacchulum, Wally and Phil.  Nice words Bacchulum glad to hear you are still a racing driver at heart with plenty of fight left in you ;D ;D. It was a good season and a fitting tribute to Flattop Bruce, thanks Phil and all the other  drivers who took part.

Yep, well done Dave, Phil and Wally. Another great season thanks to Phil and Dennis and not forgetting Seanus and Andrew.

I think Bruce would be proud of how Thursday's have turned out. Just a fun night with old mates and old cars. Thanks Bruce.

Well, kinda, but not really.
It's an A380, so less a 'private jet' and more a 'mobile, flying night club'. ;D ;D 8)

Maybe we could start a "go fund me" to help Bacchulum pay his tax bill? ;D
