A dedicated Touring Car series would be cool.

My 2cents suggestion, would be run on Saturdays since some guys have long drives and going home on Sundays with a long drive is rough.

The problem for some of us for a Saturday race is that some of us would have to take off work on Friday. I like the current format. We usually finish fairly early on Sunday.

If this kicks off its 1 day & Sunday that way if drivers want more practice the host track can have a Saturday practice if needed

Please space out the races. This month, for example, is crazy for on road racing. Many of us have families and attending three or four two day races in a month may contribute to increased divorced rates.

Getting a divorce will give you more time to race though. Silver lining. Just saying...

In the divorce the wife gets all your money. Then you all the time in the world to race but no money. Catch 20 20

Only problem with every other month is, it would take over a year to finish a series. I thInk we need to look into the CTS series that Lex Tyler runs in Cali and try to mirror it, as they are having great success and Having Fun.

Every two to three weeks might be a possible solution. It is also important to be mindful of other events... i.e Roar Regionals.....and club races at tracks that have a good turnout. One wants to draw from them, and not compete with them....

I have seen what the cts has been doing
Remember 6 races there are certain months & with other events to work around it all depends
On everyone working together to make this flourish
