Community Event Feeler

Post by MrShannon2U on Thu 8 Sep 2016 - 19:05

Putting an idea out there to gage interest for a community event. It would either be a one night event on multiple tracks, or possibly a series. Here's the basics.

Spec series featuring a B or A class car (after upgrades)
NO tuning (i.e. sport suspension and trans, some engine mods to speed things up, etc. The only thing tuneable would be tires, so honor system on that.)
The car needs to be a reasonably balanced/well driving car to start with.
No TCS, no ABS, no ASM.

This should create some extremely close racing with minimal time investment. Winning should be entirely on who's the best driver, eliminating the variable of tuning from the equation. (We could call it, say... The Driver's Series?)

Car ideas:
BMW E30 M3
BMW E46 M3
Lotus Elise Cup
Nissan 370Z
Subaru BRZ
....
Open to feedback, suggestions, any sort of input really.

I like the idea of a sprint series, kind of like how Grid 1 worked (3 races at 3 tracks, 4-5 laps per race, points from each race would win "the event")

On the topic of "no tuning beyond tires", i like the theory but I dont know how well the honor system works when its a bunch of internet strangers... Maybe if there was a requirement that every driver had to share their tune? That way if someone is suspicious, you just grab their tune while in the lobby.

Overall my opinion is "the more options available for race nights/events, the better" so I'd be interested if it was in a day/time that worked for me.

I'm just trying to gage interest, figured general discussion was a good place to engage the whole community before I go as far as drawing up a TCR application and whatnot.

I think Myles' point was that you posted in the iRacing.com general discussion instead of the Forza6 general discussion... lol I didn't notice til now.
