Doesn't look like anything is being done with the hall at the moment, although saying that, the light on the outside of the hall isn't on at the moment.

yes i think all classes will be mass start.

tkd
29-08-2011, 01:24 PM
can i then ask why?....
and will we stager the cars on the grid, if so who will start 1st?, or do we just bunch up and go.? if so i think this will be a car killer and not a good idea for what are ment to be cheap club nights, tc's brake to easy for that type of thing.

I'm sure it'll be grid starts but Dave will comfirm.

Dave Dodd
29-08-2011, 03:48 PM
okay, I think what will happen is we will have a couple of lines marked out on the track, to give everyone a little space.

but if you are unsure or a little under powered then start near the back.

I know i probably will, as i have no idea how my mini will handle now :lol:

Mass starts.....get in!

Nothing annoys me more than having to work out where you are in a race, oh wait a minute maybe it does, listening to Martin gloat about beating me does annoy me quite a bit actually now I come to think of it.

Who is this Martin you speak of Lloyd. Will you be racing at all over the winter or have you sold everything now :(.

ok then see what happens friday night and what the other tc drivers have to say it mite be fun with a mini or a off road but i don't think the tc's will want this change and may be could have been left out of it, just my opinion.


just to add my luke took a side swipe at Cotswold track,
Witch took out the esc,motor sensor block and some plastic parts at a cost of more than 200, this was not a big hit just in the right place.
cos modern tc's don't have any protection on the sides for electrics.:thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbdown:

although that could at any point in a race :eh?:

we are just trying to make it more of a race than a rally (against the clock)

it all depends on the types of car/motor that turn up on the night really.

I hope the computer still has it's "special announcement" :wub..., as for the mass starts, finals are always mass start and i never hear any complaints about those, so i don't really see how it would be any different. :confused:

I thinks a grid stile start like in finals would be fine, it a group start off 1 or 2 lines I don't like, a finals start would be good practice. Could we not start running 2 qualis and 2 finals to spice it up a bit, as then you can chase for poll, then a win.

Dave,lukes crash was on a practice day to be fair was trying to make a point at how weak these cars are and how much damage 10 cars within such a small aera starting off could do. Not trying to be a kill joy

can we have an organised grid starting on the straight if we are all starting at the same time? :confused:

reg

i think we should have a reverse grid,and its not on the straight,if we have 10 cars,one starts on the first corner,the next on the second,the next on the third,or have 3 rounds of qualy then a final,this is the best way to make the results right,that way it ends up with a propper race at the end of every night

We could experiment with different ways, we could try having 4 start lines and the top 4 from the last heat start on the front line then the next four on the Second line ect, kinda like they do in Moto GP.

You planning on having 16 cars in a heat then rich? :D

How about 5 lines, two on each with grid order sorted by ftd after round 1. Should spread people out a bit before the first corner.

Shotgun not marshalling that one :woot:

Wes, I nearly sold the lot, but thankfully the guy pulled out and so I still have a crusty X6 and the General.

Gridding mass starts will just be a pain in the assholes in my opinion, just give it ultimate death off the line, and if you don't like it just hold back for a second and drive past the carnage on turn 1 :thumbsup:

it's ok but will put off new drivers when there cars keep getting bust, and with out them there will be no club sooner or later.
stick to girding like in big race days to give young and new drivers a good idea how it all works, and bring them on in the sport.
