Given how "good" we all are, I am not so sure it's a slam dunk... Sounds like we should test your theory...you know... for science.

I just found out my house closing is being pushed back to June 20th. So I will be missing the first 2 or 3 rounds. So if we get into a waiting list situation, i will pull my name off the list. Otherwise, I will hopefully be back for the end of the season.

Hi all, I see that this Season is set as a standing start , has anyone ever discussed a rolling start, as this would make sure everyone has warm tires , and that seems to be a major issue, carnage at the 1st corner at the start of a race, rolling would severely reduce this situation. That's just my opinion..

F3 is standing starts.  I did some officials races and had no problem with the starts.  F3 with cold tires is not as bad as the radical or the Pro Mazda.  Rolling start don’t do anything about warming tires, it the opposite, it cools them, running at 60mph, for a lap, try it.  Take the HPD, you have tire temp and pressure on the dashboard, put the tires to 22psi, do a lap at 55-60 mph around Watkins’s glen., or any other track.
