Just thinking Botts, with the main race being reverse grid, to give people incentive to battle in the sprint race, maybe something could be done like in F2 where it is a reverse grid for the top 8 on the grid for the second race. Might stop people who have a bad start completely phoning it in just to get that reverse grid pole

So 8th goes to 1st and 1st goes to 8th and so on? I like that idea Barb

I have a couple of suggestions for this series

1) Maybe for reverse grid instead of splitting the field, why don't you do reverse divisions, as in the slower division is at the front of the grid, with the race order reversed, then the faster division is next on the grid, with the race order reversed as well. If not, I suggest you make it the top half of the field is reversed, rather than the top 8, because what happens if we only get 9 cars showing up, seems a bit unfair on the 9th car haha.

2) Having that second race at one hour may make this night a bit long, maybe bring it back to 45 minutes, then put that tyre wear back up. That'd bring different tyres into play if someone wants to try a one stopper or a two stopper, or maybe don't make pit stops compulsory so that if someone wants to run hards for a whole race then they're able to go for it.

3) Is points for pole necessary?, the biggest concern is that someone might be able to snag the championship by just qualifying well. Maybe change it to the fastest lap in the feature race because that can be harder to get, or get rid of it altogether.

Those are just some things for you to think about it, feel free to include any of these or not. I can also give you the password to the youtube channel if you want to make highlight videos or live stream the events. You should also post some dates soon, so we can start recruiting for this series haha

Don't finish 9th then lol.

I like how it is just incase you want to know what people think Botts.

If you feel it will run too long you could shorten the practice or qualifying.

If you put they tyre wear up that will be less about racing and more about being slow and steady (will also affect controller users more.) I race to be as fast as I can that is why I enjoy it.

I am looking forward to it Botts! Hopefully some good close racing
