Discussion in 'F1 Classic 1967 Series Closed' started by John vd Geest, Nov 28, 2018.
I was only fast because I had the Lotus really, so I'm allowed to pick a fast car
Choose a car from the pack of 4 cars....I was fast like you in a Eagle (that is also a lot easier than Lotus)
Good discussion guys ! some great ideas ! keep them coming ..
I feel If we want to do a F1 style series with these F1 cars & keep it kind of real maybe we should only allow 3 of each car (or what ever number fills the grid) & then have a lottery /random draw for drivers to have 1st pick ,2nd pic ectt …
I'm not racing, but I'd say, drop the lotus, eagle and Ferrari, and have free choice of all of the others which seem pretty even.
Anyway, I'll be watching the broadcast.
I make another proposal that could work for this champ that is based on an old italian champ with Power and Glory mod for GTR2 in which I used to race 5 or 6 years or so.
This champ will consist of 7 races. We can split the champ in 2 stages of 3 races and than make a final special event at Monza with the Lotus of Jim Clark.
We pick three cars for the 1st stage (for example Cooper - McLaren - Brabham), and each driver must select a different car every race before the first race of the champ (I'd say, at least a week before the start of the champ to let the admins prepare the entry list for the server).
Example 1st stage (obviously you can choose every combination you prefere):
Round 1 Riverside Long - Cooper
Round 2 Thomson Road GP - McLaren
Round 3 Deutschlandring - Brabham
Same goes for the next three races, in which we will pick anohter 3 cars of the mod. And than we will have the Super final at Monza with the Lotus.
I don't know if you can manage the entry list with some sort of file on AC, but I would be glad to help you in the compilation of any file for every race to not bother the organizers too much. We could even keep "secret" our choice until the last day, sending it via pm to an organizer (John, or Rob, or whoever you want), if we want to avoid some leader - follower popular psicological games
This kind of champ will allow us to drive the entire field of cars without bothering with balance of performances and other similar nonsenses
What do you think about it?
I think all the suggestions are great, some are maybe a bit too complex but I also think John is not liking this much.
I want to drive the Cooper myself, but I'm afraid a lot of people will pick the fast cars even fast guys. So I will be doing some testing myself first.
Looking at the previous season we had a lot of people not showing up. Wasn't part of that related to the fact that they knew their car was not competitive at all on some tracks ?
Cooper also here, thanks!
Could allow those who scored zero points in season 1 the choice of the lotus, eagle and Ferrari (and any others if they prefer)
All point scorers and new entries have to choose one of the other 'slower' cars.
Fabrizio, I think you wrong posted here, and also @Laurent Londes
This is the thread for Season2 car choice:
I like this actually !
Noooooooooo, I scored 1 in the last race Whyyyy oh whyyyyyy??????
Just kidding I'm really proud about my POINT
I'm fine with any of these, but friday's are bit hard for me.
