Everybody will drop their lowest total points finish, effectively allowing us all to miss one race without too much of a points hit.
To be classified for points you must finish the lap on which 75%
of the total race distance takes place.
In order to make the events closer success ballast will be given to cars as follows.
Maximum success ballast to be 120kg. This will be kept under review during the season and may be refined as we progress.
RACE LENGTH, TIME ETC
15 minute quali session commences at 19:30 UK time (currently GMT)
Races commence at 19:45 UK time.
Races will be 45 minutes in length.
Drivers must pick a car prior to the season starting and then keep the same car for all events. This will help avoid the situation in which more experienced drivers or drivers with more time to test gain an advantage by picking the strongest car for each event. You can change car but this will incur a penalty of 35% of the points scored (rounded up to the nearest point) in the event you changed car. Following a car change you must either stay with the new car or incur the penalty again if you switch to any other car for the subsequent events.
All of the above is a work in progress. If anyone has an suggestions or idea's regarding any of the above please post below before we set dates for the season to commence.
