The first scheduled race will be Oct 20. Not exactly sure on the time but I'm thinking around 9:30. Any thoughts?

Need more safety striping.

Of course, that's me and my affinity for nasty livery talking.

Good job.

Set the car up last night, tried running on Laguna. Made it up to the corkscrew before I just screw it and turned the xbox off. No opinion on the car. I just wasn't paying attention last night.

Looking good guys...

I was working on my build and livery last night.... I was just about done with the livery when I accidentally (due to being REALLY tired) canceled out (hit X instead of A on exit) of a really good design session and lost a lot of livery goodness... I was pissed, so I rage quit my Xbox LOL.... I'll finish it up tonight.... and post pics this weekend...

Low.. I will say that I questions whether or not I am in the pro class, but I guess we'll wait and see...

I do suggest that you have an active classification system where you adjust the class through the series, or use the first race as a determination of class... we can look at the results and determine high or low class based on total race times... The reason I say this is that the car has a lot to do with how your place in a race, as does tune.... With both of those out of the equation, we'll see a purer representation of driver skill.... Thoughts?

I like this!!! I will volunteer to work out a handicap system to give slower guys a little more PI.

Idea 1 - Honor system... More accurate / less bias / People could sandbag
Everyone runs 7 laps in the spec miata separately (no traffic/ghosts to skew times) at several less popular tracks (remove any track advantage from practice) and report simple average of their times [total time ÷ 7] . Then compare individuals to the rest of the participants to produce a scale.

Idea 2 - Prior results... More bias / no sandbagging
The results from previous series races are available in the archives. Since folks were in those races were in it to win, it's probably safe to say using those times would prevent any sandbagging. We can compile total race times compared to the rest of the participants to figure out how we rank between each other.

I'm thinking that the first race its what I'll use to set everyone in their class. Probably just split it down the middle. There will be 1,2,3 prizes for both class. I'll still move people around based on their skill throughout the series. I trust the people here enough that I don't feel anyone will really sand bag a race or two just to get into the rookie class. I'm going to be running balls to the wall no matter what. Even if I move myself to pro and then come in last in that class I'm still going to be happy with how I finish.

I wouldn't sandbag to drop in class. I would however be prone to screwing up thereby leaving me in a bad position. Then I'd have to Beef my way to the front.

Yeah but screwing up is different. I screw up huge a lot, you and some other guys in the club rarely screw up. That's a big difference.
