Every event should have at least 2 rounds of racing. Each racer will be allowed 1 call out per round for a total of 2 call outs per event.
First come first serve as far as call outs go. We'll use the next event as an example.
Calls out Jeff
|Result||sj is now #2, Jeff is #3|
|2. Jeff||Called out Dave|
Jeff is unable to race Dave because he lost his spot to sj.
Jeff will race sj again for #2.
Jeff loses and stays at #3
|3. SKR||Calls out #3|
Beats Jeff. SKR is now #3, Jeff #4
|4. nosub||Called out #4|
|Scenario||nosub races Jeff for #4|
Nosub wins and is now #4, Jeff #5
As you can see Jeff had to race 4 times in the first round, sj had 2 races leaving SKR and nosub with one race. Round 2 call outs can be made after round 1 ends. sj can now call out Dave for #1. If sj loses, he could end up like Jeff.....since most likely those that had advanced in the #1 round will call out the positions ahead of them.
It's very important to send your best performing car. Everyone wants to be #1, hopefully this type of racing will bring out the best in all of us and push us all to in becoming better tuners.
If at least 2 cars show up in the shark pool, there will be a run off to determine who will get a shot at #5. If there is only one shark pool car, then they will run #5 in the first round. The shark pool The winner of the shark pool could end up as high as #4 for the event. This guy could have a hot car which should push the top 3 guys to stay on their game.
Please post questions or feel free to suggest other ideas. As you can see, Jeff got beat up pretty bad at this event and depending on the call outs in the second round..... could end up off of the list for this event. Those that sent great tune ups have a shot at advancing a maximum of two spots at each event. Saying that means it would take a newbie 3 events before they could become #1. Since we don't race weekly, this could take up to 3-4 months however that gives the top positions guys to try and stay on top and makes the newbie work for it.
Ideally one race a month would be perfect.. We need more tracks involved so if you have any interest in holding event, let me know.
