since F-1 is on the plate for the upcoming event, may i respectfully suggest that F-1 would be the ideal class for showing off an awesome concourse competition to augment the on-track action.

I have one suggestion to make this race better.

Please use the fastest 3 consectutive lap seeding process that Scotty uses at the IIC. Why go to Cleveland for the first time and have to qualify out of the lowest heat like it has been in the past.

Fred

...or since every practice is run, scored and announced as a qualifier, why not just have 8 qualifiers, no "practices" and shuffle after rounds 2,4,6, and 7. Make the heats totally randam to start. Could make things interesting....

2 more thumbs up for the fast 3 consecutive practice laps seeding thing. I think that it would be appropriate to consider starting the practice runs according to past performances as a way to reward those who have attended previously and have done well in the past. But when it comes time for actual qualifying to begin, it's probably a good suggestion to let the fastest 10 guys from practice run together in their qualifiers. Seems fair enough to me even though there will probably be some quick "new" guys who will likely elbow me out of the masters A qualifier even before any official scoring begins.

Ian really looking forward to the race. I also like the idea of seating with fastest 3 consec laps. Also no practice on wed this year? Nice.

See ya in November.

Mike
