For a few, perhaps the term "best series ever" doesn't apply to anything regarding the V8's.

Personally I'd like to see some longer races, but I know everyone isn't a fan of that so what I would suggest is this

Week 1:
Qualifying
Endurance race (length: 45 - 80 minutes)

Week 2:
Race

This would see us do endurance races in the same cars in place of a support series.
The way that it would work is that it would be a separate championship with a different points table to the regular shorter format races. The grid order would be set by the results of the first qualifying session and drivers are free to participate in both or only one

Decent point....
Perhaps have a second championship the way soccer is set up in Europe (uefa and premier league ect)...two different comps....im in for that.

To the point of lagging.....well we've seen less networking dramas in the last two rounds because the "laggers" have done the right thing by stepping aside...kudos to them.
Do we need to look at introducing criteria in regards to networking performance? Every entrant needs to post speedtest results? Or we hold two test days where it is compulsory to attend at least one of those sessions in order to better understand everyones connection..?! Seems unfair perhaps, yes, but what I and im sure most dont like is the late nights because of the delayed starts...


The last two rounds have been reletively fine but most quali and race rounds before that, races in room 1 started no earlier than 15 mins after the 9pm scheduled start and dramas for the following races that night. Nurburgring race night was FUBAR, 40 mins late...

And if it is obvious that someone isnt committed, then do we need to be "cruel to be kind" and say "no, you are not invited this series unless you are 100% committed to attending because you f#####d us around last series". I can understand one round out of 7 or 8 rounds total (I myself missed out of Silverstone as I went to a bday dinner that went later then expected, then I played taxi....) but I have turned up to every race and quali other than that. I havent done quali and not turned up the next week...orrr some other rubbish excuse but then you find them on a different game....

Im confident now we have filtered out the laggers and time wasters and the remaining lobby-and-a-half will stay as is and enjoy racing for the remaining of the series.
