Subject: Season 2020
Hi all

Is there interest in a 2020 season, and if so, are there any changes desired? If I remember correctly, I heard this quotes:
- It would be nice to have 2 more adjustments, brake balance and front wing
- Tire change time needs adjustment (suggestion/discussion)

How was the "single car only championship", I heard nothing negative about it, so you want to keep it? After car-1, the choice for this season would be car 2.

Thank you for your feedback.

Kind regards
Bernhard

    I'm certainly interested. There were many suggestions in this thread http://www.berniw.org/trb/forum/showthread.php?topicid=5933. I would sum them up to the following list:

    1. Reduce the time for tyre-changes by 5 seconds or so.
    2. Allowing front and rear wing, brake balance, and diff gear ratio.
    3. Weight handicap depending on the number of points a driver got in the current season.
    4. Using two car types, teams (car1 + car2) next season by each participant (2021 car2 + car3 and so on).
    5. Reverse grid based on the results of the previous race, with only the first race of the season using qualifying,
    6. Only increase damage to the car that's driving into the opponent, not both.

    Maybe we could make a list with all the suggestions where there is someone willing to do the work and then vote on each point.

      Should note that options 3 and 5 are mutually exclusive.

    It looks as if everyone is busy with more important things at the moment ;)
    I myself wouldn't be disappointed, if there was no championship this season. Maybe we should better use this year to make some well tested changes and then set up the championship really early next year to give the racers enough time to prepare.

      Yes next year would be better for me too. Moved to a new city (Canberra), new job, things are pretty hectic. Doubt I'd be able to do half of what I hoped for should the championship run this year.

    Hi All!

    There is a lot of work this year and I will not have much time, but if there are races this season, I will try to prepare the team.
