Idk, you'll never please everyone imho.

Some people like to just lay it down and see the event come to an end, others love the build up and the pit atmosphere that comes with it.

Three days. When you include travel time, not many can take more than two vacation days for a race. Especially if you need to save vacation time for family trips and the holidays.

At the British Nats they are run as one dayers...Stock on Sat and Mod on Sun.

There are alot of different ways it can be done!

Just a few thoughts,

Barry
I would like to see this done everywhere. As long as the layout truly is new to everyone and the no practice before Friday rule is in fact enforced, I feel this would be the way to go. Sure the pressure to learn the layout quickly would be intense, but this is racing so it should be intense.

This is pushing the budget for me as well as the time off work, counting the travel time, using 1/3 to 1/2 my vacation for racing doesn't sit well on the home front and severely limits multiple Big events I can attend. I passed up Snowbirds in favor of Nationals because it saved 2 days. You can not attend seriously with out being there for all the practice offered, unless you want to settle for 1 or 2 controled practice runs
A true fresh layout with out home field advantage the weeks before and closed track till day before qualifying and at most only 3 rounds of qualifying. Show up Thursday night/Friday morning practice Qual, on saturday, Mains on Sunday. for big events. everything else should fit within a Saturday Sunday timeframe.

I think they should do a 3 say event and say that no one can show up before controlled practice on friday and hop to get track time so it is far to those of use who cant take all that time off.
