Lightbulb Just a thought right now.....

Watering down classes is something I'm not a fan of, but with the huge E-buggy turnout at last year's series races and 4x4 sct dwindling, there's a lot of newer guys and youngsters getting into E-buggy. I am considering having an E-buggy and E-buggy Expert class for this series. What does everyone think?

If we go with splitting the class, I'll also be looking for some ideas on how to police it.

This series kicked a$$ last year...I can't wait to do it again! Thanks to the hosting tracks and series organizers (DAK!) for putting this together again.

I think the need to police it, answers the question...
You could set up a rookie ebuggy class, less $, no points, pay outs or awards. If the intent is to let more people 'win' then my $0.02 is no.

I would love to see an Expert and an Intermediate class. Here's a couple simple guidelines:

-Top 5 finishers in Intermediate MUST run Expert next season.

-If the race directors feel that after the first race someone is racing in Intermediate but should be in Expert, they move said person to Expert and give him/her points total equal to where his winning time would be. Meaning if you win the main with 10 laps in 10:10 and that time would have made you 6th in the Expert main, you get points for 6th in Expert class and are bumped up. For the most part, we all know each other and each other's abilities. The only exceptions should be if someone new to the area joins the series.

Resort after the first round of heats and your class separation is somewhat done. You already have a novice class

I agree with the resort format. Seems fare, run the best you can and start in the main with other racers of comparable speed. I usually stay in sportsman class. I know I'm not as fast as the pro level drivers. If you do split the class's I think any driver with sponsorship of any kind should automatically be in the pro division. Come on spring!

And it saves time in overall race program for the day.
