Let me start by saying, whatever the rules for this or any series on the GSRC broadcast schedule, GSRC will always support the decided upon rules without question.

That said, GSRC is always trying to improve the "show". GSRC prides itself on its ability to tell a story. Not just the story of the race, but the story of the season. Building to a dramatic conclusion at the season finale.

So for the sake of a dramatic season finale, may I suggest series officials consider making the season finale a "No Drop" event. Racing without a net, without the insurance that a bad result can be dropped, cranks up the drama to eleven.

Rule gimmicks can cheapen a points championship and certainly a no drop finale could be thought of as a gimmick. So choosing not to go that direction is understandable.

Thanks for reading.

Our apologies, we forgot to update the point system to reflect real life IMSA series system. It's updated now!

Am I right in assuming NO DROP RACES for teams?

If there are drop races for teams
Q1: How many drop rounds?
Q2: Is it the team total of a round that gets dropped, or are team points simply the combined total of each of the two drivers after each driver drops his/her worse result

Thanks
