Just a suggestion for next season.  Could we mirror the official schedule for whatever car we run.  I would suggest running what ever track the official series ran the week before.  This would give everyone plenty of time to practice in race settings diring the week.  It will also make it much easier to get setups and find track tutorials.  It would help myself quite a bit and it may help others too.   It may attract more people too.  It seems like we are lucky to get 10 starters in our races these days.  It gets boring when 5 mins into the race everyone is by themselves.

It's something we will think about of course. The other idea we have had is to have the same track for the Tuesday and Thursday Series (except for oval). That way, it will be less expensive to our member and give enough time to get use to the car.

Both Ferrari and Ford GTE might be available for next season and we might switch to those cars! If we are switching, to make sure we have setups, yes we will try to take track that iRacing ran there in their season.

Also, it's sometimes difficult to fit our schedule with iRacing as we are offset to their schedule.

Yea, my issue is I have to decide between practicing for league races or doing Official races in my playtime. It would be easier to do both when we run the same tracks. I start to lose interest in it when you practice throughout the week for the race, you get to race day and 6 people start the race, 2 die on T1, and by then end of lap 2 there is a 30 second gap infront and behind you. You could run the same schedule, then pick a race during week 13, and announce that the rest of the season will continue to follow the schedule once its announced.

I like this idea a LOT.

In the summer, I really struggle to make time to practice. The racing isn't usually an issue too much, but fitting in practice for 2 or more series is really tough. If both were at the same track, I think your participation would go up.

Relative to official, I cannot comment as I don't race many official races. I would use them as practice, however. Great idea Carsten.
