Hi really enjoyed 2nights racing,it made a change to race for position in each race,only thing i didnt like was the starts,ok if everyone had the same idea that its a 5 min race and you dont need to be first round the first corner to win the race,i think if its going to be a mass start,instead of going off like we did,just go in a stagger,that way,hopfully everyone can get some practice for big race events and learn how to race close at the start,unless im at the back :woot::thumbsup:

Top night chaps, first time tonight and we will definately come again.

Not totally sold on four heats, no finals , as I would have liked to have a poke at the quick lads, but still had a great time.. :thumbsup:

its the same as real racing.

the 1st round is based on the car number given to you on the night (so its a bit like a qualifier), then its based on your finish position (laps/time) for the following rounds, so that's how they are staggered..

So do you have 2 start lines e.g 1 to 5 on the front row and 6 to 10 on the second for the first rnd , then where you finish for the second rnd and so on ?
Or do you have a final type stagger ? Sounds cool

well, we ended up with 5 lines with 2 cars on a line slightly staggered :)

I love the new mass starts! awesome races, Shark we had 5 lines and had two cars per line, then for the next race you were sorted on the grid by FTD from then on.

Looking forward to racing indoors again this week, especially with the mass start system. Sounds good.
