WRC Stages would be great, a proper streamed rally stage idea has never been done before, so that'd be great. I dont see why people vote for endurance series when some people are complaining about "this is getting boring, i want something new" but still vote for endurance :>
Those times were just filler space, length of races could change.
No more arguments!
GTAL went from 40 to 24. iTCC went from >100 to 16. TBOC did drop a small bit. Not saying all do that, but instead of just doing the same thing over and over and seeing drops, how about try something new?
Read Liane's post. Based on FIA GT1, so nothing like current GTR leagues.
As said, layouts are done.
Tracker would collect the times and total etc. Fortitude's Hillclimb Challenge doesn't relate to WRC, this would.
GTRs are only in 1 round (unless you count nGT as a GTR). More info about this below.
Was going to list this, but too close to MiniFBM IMO. Both couldn't run together.
I'll give you an example schedule for 2 seasons, maybe you will fully understand then.
I'm affraid this is something related to league racing/LFS league racing, there are very very few leagues with no interrest drops. At some point people gets bored/realised they somehow realise they won't win the champ and leave. Not sure if we really need new leagues, we mostly need new people.
Obviously iTCC was a real joke with the 100 to 16 drop. But other leagues went pretty much nicely, GTAL's 40 to 24 isn't bad if you consider that most of the teams are small and have trouble coping with longer races. And I belive you can be tempted to remove out of the 40 the few numpty teams that obviously were never going to take the start of any race.
Just compare the whole thing with MoE/IGTC, it isn't that bad really.
As for other leagues, TBOC/LFSCART Light/Mini-FBM only dropped of a few people. LFSCART did drop a bit more but the FO8 is quite demanding training wise for the average LFSer, the season is long, and the races held on Saturdays don't help at all. So nothing surprising IMO.
At the end of the day we are always going to lose a few people, I doubt we can do anything about that, and I guess it isn't worth worrying about it, as long as there aren't too many(iTCC), or as long as there are people to replace them.
Sure, but we'd still end up driving GTRs in the end.
If it is ran by trackers I guess this could be done without much work comparing to another league(no need to have several admins on race day, no need to investigate incidents, etc), so definitely worth considering then. I like the idea.
Obviously Fortitude doesn't relate to WRC, but you'd still come up with similar(-ish) layouts, no?
That's true, we had a 2 one-off events in Fun Racing League recently(a one hour race and a two hour race), and in the end we were more than pleased by the nice turn-up, and managed to get a few new people too.
Yes, it seems like people really like the FOX, though it gives some slightly silly racing on ovals. And since there doesn't seem to be any 100% FOX league(OWRL basically has 4 FOX events a year nowadays), why not.
Personally I miss proper NGT league. BTCC or WTCC race format would be good. Maybe even some enduranceish rounds in the schedule...
IMO NGT tire physics are the best one in LFS. Aslo race between UFR and XFR is spetacular. I hope that there will be enough supporters for this idea
In regards to the iTCC drop, I think personally that I / the admins have to take some of the blame - getting the password PMs out less than 24h before the race surely doesn't help, but then again, it can also be contended that the racers should know the schedule and be willing and ready to go no matter when results / points / threads / PMs go out.
Every series ever surely has had some form of interest drop - so surely every series going forward should be expected to have some form of such.
I'm personally not dissatisfied with how things have been recently in terms of participation, so I won't complain.
That's true, but in the end I think it was more like because of the rather "elitist" race format and point system. Many of those knocked out in shootout for the first 1-2 rounds probably decided to not bother anymore, because they wrongly thought they had no chance to race for the whole season. Same goes to the ones who made it to the races in rounds 1-2, failed to get in the points/crashed/got crashed and thought they'd have no chance to ever fight for the top 10 and therefore decided to stop plainly.
look up this years rules and you will see
I don't say something like that just for fun, you know
There has been a drop, true that, but from where this Championship came, I cannot regard it as a drop.
As that is my cup of tea: There have been difficulties this past winter time. Generally last year there has been a huge amount of FOX racing, so it was temporarily suspended. There will be at least one LFSCART Light race as event race this summer. (It's not dead it's just sleeping).
