Formula De Season 3 ideas

Post by Ravenpolar » Fri Aug 14, 2015 12:12 pm

So this post will begin the collation of ideas for season 3 of Formula De racing being the 2015/16 races.
I will post some polls here in an effort to gain agreement on some of the major issues that we have faced over the last 2 seasons and also to try and encourage new teams and drivers.

Next Poll... they think its all over!...... It is now! :shock:

What was the idea we had for reigning in the pit lane problem, limiting the cars to 3rd gear?
Into the mercy seat I climb
My head is shaved, my head is wired
And like a moth that tries
To enter the bright eye
So I go shuffling out of life
Just to hide in death awhile
And anyway I never lied.

You'll find out the options under consideration when we get to question 9.
For now, that is one of the options yes.

If we going to do set dates then please can I politely request that we avoid the F1 calendar (those are days we socialise with other petrol heads) and the 'local' BTCC events (Snetterton, Rockingham, Brands Hatch (occasionally))

That kind of defeats the idea of "fixed" dates. I.e first Sunday of the month as a date is no longer viable.
Can I kindly ask that you or Nic post a schedule as it seems to be you both that we need to work around.

Looks like fixed dates are a go
We will have to plan around BTCC and F1 but all dates will be available before the season starts

So we will do one street circuit and it looks like a choice between Docks and something else

Would help if you m,arked the ones that you count as street circuits as such.

Monaco is a street circuit for example, but not by Form D standards

You want to race on the Long Beach course twice in one season?
