A big YES. I can help you out with anything especially with presetting the batch file. If we end up using this great feature in this series and future, I'd suggest we apply the ballast to all the point scorers so this way it will be success ballast.

And what about the 1st race? It could make sense if best car carries the most weight and worst the least.

Example:

Event 1 - 1st place +60 kg
Event 2 - 7th +60 kg (no change due to 0 kg for 7th place)
Event 3 - 3rd +90 kg (+30 kg for 3rd place)
Event 4 - 1st +100 kg (+60 kg but max weight is 100 kg)
...and so on.

I like it.

My vote is NO to weight handicap, but if most people say yes, a trophy is a good time to try it.

P1: 2017 1st DRM Trophy. Ford
P1: 2015 R2P S37 Steel Wheels by Simracers 1979 Formula 1. Ligier-Ford Cosworth
P2: 2014 R2P S33 True Power by Simracers Grand Prix 1979.
P2: 2012 GP1979 Season 3.
P3: 2018 5th Historic GT Season.
P3: 2018 3rd Historic GT Season.

Y agree with weight handicap.

As to how much, I really can't say and leave that choice for someone with experience in that field.

I think Antonio, we all can practise different amount of weights (10~100) ourselves to learn how much weight has how much effect to our laptimes and share our experience with admin to make his life easier when deciding the optimum amounts for the best result :)

As far as I can remember, 60kg slowed me down by 1.5 second in a modern F1 car on an average circuit where I was lapping ~1:30.000 But I do think a GT car will be effected less than an F1 car in terms of laptimes. We shall see :)
