Suggestions for new Formula Renault 3.5 Season
« on: June 09, 2016, 08:41:PM »
We have done a rethink of our race format and have decided to allow any view among other settings.  Please look through the league essential thread to familiarize with all the specifics.  We also are opening a discussion of any suggestion you can share to make our season more desirable to participate in and welcome your ideas no matter how off-the wall you think they are.  Se let's hear them.

Update on season settings:  We are looking in changing from a 50% F1 official length to 2 races at 30 and 15% lengths.  We figured with the fragility of the formula cars that the likelihood of terminal damage still exists and if it occurs in the early laps, most people would just leave.  That is the reason for the 30 and 15% length proposal.  People are most likely to stay wait for the shorter race and salvage points.   The damage is set presently to Performance affecting and should give you greater odds in being able to continue in the race by driving a slightly damaged car or by making it to the pits for repairs.   Points have been adjusted so the everyone receives points (see schedule in league information thread) and will make it tight in points all through the grid; there will not be a run-away points leader and everyone will have a point of challenge throughout the grid.    Still dabating tire wear, should we increase it to make you stop midway the race or just leave it at real but force a pit?


You are welcome to submit your ideas and or discuss the above.

We are still looking for more drivers to fill up the seasts. As per our conversation today, it looks like we are going to choose the Dallara if that is what the majority wants. We have a list of 15 historic F1 tracks we intended to use but we are allowing people to select their favorite track to be included if is not on the list.  It appears we are going to have a 12 race season and you will be able to drop your worse 4 and have 8 to be applied to the points race; so conceivably, you will be able to join up to a month and still fight for points. Our points system will keep the points race close all up and down the grid and there will not be a runaway champion. Once we finalize the track choice we will then make an announcement. Join us now to be part of the socials we hold every Thursday with the 1 hour optional practice starting at 8 PM London. We will be announcing the start of the season in about 2-3 weeks. For next week we have selected Brno to race again with the Dallara. Join us and help us tailor the season by voting on car and tracks to use. So far we know we will be including Road America and Willow Springs International.
