I hope we get entries...

I wonder what the standard is to be on "the list" of races allowed to be posted on the main forum. Because I'm pretty sure we've outpaced a few of those races in entries both years we've run it.

Sorry, rant over, just a little salty.

Are the F1 tires listed the requirement or a suggestion? The reason that I ask is because the Pit tires aren't marked and you can't readily tell what compound you are looking at.

We haven't had an issue with people trying to cheat, but if it becomes an issue we would rectify it by marking approved tires or something to that effect. It's pretty easy to feel the difference in compounds.
