I understand, and like I said, I haven't had the opportunity to read through all the threads yet to understand how the car selection works.

I like any system that causes more racers to chose different cars. I'd hate to race any series that has most of the drivers choosing one vehicle because it's better than others. But I'd also like to know that the car I race is the car I have for the season. I'd take pride in knowing that I'm racing a lesser car and beating better opponents. And as a new driver to the league, I'd have no problem in knowing that I'd be assigned or given the choice of a lesser car either until I've proven myself in a season or otherwise. Also, I'm not in favor of penalizing people who finish well with weight penalties. I've read many series who do that, and I'm not sure I like that.

So: I'll be racing a FW07 in the Zolder race this Sunday, but I won't be proud if it. I do so only because it's what I've been practicing with and I feel safe with. But as a new driver, I don't feel like I'm entitled to drive what seems to be the best car. But it's my entry into a new league and I'll go from there.

Just take FW07 and win at Zolder, if fortune wants it. :)

Don't care about the system. You won't disturb the final classification doing this so don't care about it. You have free choice and make the best you can. I luckily took the champ title one race before the season's end so I take Fittipaldi F6A which is even not an average car. But I hope I will have a good time with it. :)

Yeah, I have no intention that I might win. My only hope is that I'm safe and don't cause anyone to crash. After that, if I don't finish last, then I'll be happy. :)

We should put the post below in a separate thread and make it a sticky thread.

I lost 15 minutes to find it again as I didn't remember that the car rules are actually in the track thread :laugh:

And I knew that the information was somewhere... many new people will not see this at all :(

Admin wrote: I understand your point of view but "learning the car" shouldn't so big problem if you have 2 weeks for it. However, you mentioned very important thing that the system which forced the drivers to select the cars they maybe don't want to race. I must think it again... and I think I have the solution. Just give me some time. I invented dozens of systems for GP1979. The most important thing is to not kill the series by stupid regulations.

EDIT:

Maybe system below will suit better.

Cars are ordered as follows:

1. Williams FW07
2. Ligier JS11
3. Renault RS12
4. Ferrari T4
5. Lotus 79
6. Renault RS11
7. Lotus 80
8. McLaren M29
9. Brabham BT49
10. Tyrrell 009
11. Brabham BT48
12. Wolf WR79
13. Arrows A2
14. Alfa Romeo
15. Ferrari T3
16. McLaren M28
17. Arrows A1
18. Ensign N179
19. Williams FW06
20. Renault RS01
21. Shadow Dn9
22. Fittipaldi F5/F6
23. Rebaque HR79/100
24. ATS
25. Merzario
26. Ensign N177

The system bases on current drivers classification. First race the car choice is FREE. After the first race we take a look at drivers classification and block some cars according to drivers current position.

P1-P2 driver - Top8 cars blocked
P3-P4 driver - Top6 cars blocked
P5-P6 driver - Top4 cars blocked
P7-P8 driver - Top2 cars blocked

So we can see only Top8 cars can be temporary restricted. The rest of cars (BT49 or lower) are available all the time. The most interested thing is JOKER. It's a feature allowing to take ANY car in the season. There is ONE JOKER at the start of the season, but used once it can be unblocked by taking any SLOWER car TWO times (any time, not in a row). Slower cars would be 17-26 cars (Arrows A1 or lower).

Example of using JOKER during the season (with FW07 as the best car):

R1: FW07
R2: FW07 (joker)
R3: 17-26 car
R4: 17-26 car
R5: FW07 (joker)
R6: 17-26 car
R7: 17-26 car
R8: FW07 (joker)
R9: 17-26 car
R10: 17-26 car
R11: FW07 (joker)
R12: normal car taken according to the current position

Description of the example:
In Race 1 I start with FW07. In Race 2 I use FW07 again, as a joker. I lost joker but I can unblock it by taking any 17-26 car in two races. So, in Race 3 I use Shadow Dn9, in Race 4 I use Shadow Dn9 again. Joker is unblock. In Race 5 I use FW07 as a joker. In Race 6 and 7 the situation repeats: I use 17-26 car twice. In Race 8 I can use FW07 as a joker again. It repeats in R9 to R11 when I can take FW07 as a joker finally. I can't unblock it because of Race 11 is penultimative race. In Race 12 I use the car that is allowed by the system. Over.

I think it's not so complicated, because "car availability" is clear, visible, updated and published by admins. You just click on the link, see and decide which car can be used.

I would say no... there aren't "two wheels fully on the grey stuff at all times" which is the common rule in any race league.

Moreover, why would you spoil that beautiful piece of walkway with your skid marks? The Princes of Monaco would be mad at you!!! :lol:

Hi Guys,
sorry for missing the race :-(

I have been busy in the garden all weekend and I needed to clean it up from the autumn leaves... after one week of wind and rain we could hardly walk into the garden and next week we might have snow, so I HAD to take advantage of the beautiful sun this afternoon and complete the clean-up. Took us the whole afternoon (three people working) and now we have probably 30 cubic meters of leaves to collect... all stacked up in 4 piles as high as myself!
