No sorry guys, this slipped between two chairs :( My bad and it's too late notice for the broadcast.

We are starting the signups tonight for the next season and I'll add it to my to do list for the first two races or R2-R3.

A suggestion for the next 90 minute race. If the limits of incidents and fast repairs are doubled for the purpose of having the greatest number of cars reach the finish line, it is incoherent that the rule by which a pilot scores points by running at least 10 minutes continues. I think that if we want the race to be entertaining (yesterday it was not) this rule should be modified. So those pilots who want to score points must make an effort to remain in the race and not abandon the first problem

This will not affect my results/standings as I had 7 incident points. 

In the interest of fairness, the race was double time and double incident points.  Should the bonus points for 3 incidents or less also double to 6?

In my opinion, this race should be treated x2 in every aspect. Not only in the limit of incidents, but also in the bonus points for incidents(*) and the minimum distance to be able to score.

(*) I would be one of the "beneficiaries" of that

Will have a look about bonus, I think it makes sense.

less than 6 incidents after 90 minutes around that circuit is worthy of the bonus points IMO.

No one seems to want to stick it out and overcome adversity anymore. I didn't have the best of races but there is never a reason to just give up. In a short 10 laps sprint if you get smashed up in the first lap then well maybe ok. But a lot can happen in 90 minutes of racing.

Hell..Charlie was unhappy with his pace last night and literally pulled over and stopped to avoid the chaos in the chicane at the start and still finished in the top 10 just from sticking it out and running clean the rest of the race.

Well I sucked here as pace goes but I knew there was going to be trouble on the start and just wanted to run by myself to avoid getting in the way for one and I did not want to get hit this race early. I like this track but life has really got me in a time crunch now. So wheel time is very limited. We got crashed coming back from the races in Atlanta and both race bikes are heavily damaged. One was ejected from the trailer onto 85 the other was smashed into on the trailer. The trailer has a bent axle and there is no recourse on funding as the two cars that hit the trailer took off. We are ok no injuries so the bike can be fixed but it is a week and a half before next round and I am down 2 bikes.

Results have been updated for this round.

I've added bonus point to all drivers who have had 6 incidents and less.

I did a mistake with last position, he didn't complete 10 minutes of racing.
