Ok, i'm looking at a mid-June start. All we have to agree on is the night we want to race on. Race format would best be a Sprint Race with a standing start and qualifying (10 minute race) followed by a Feature Race with a pitstop and reverse grid (15-20 minute race).

The lobby would open at 8pm BST for a 30 minute warm-up session, drivers can join at any point during warm-up. We would then go straight into Qualifying from there.

Qualifying would be done with the in-game provided single lap qualifying which sets the Race 1 grid. Race 2 will use a reverse grid with BTCC style variable reverse grid style. I'll get a number from 1-12 (or whatever number of drivers turn up) out of a number generator to decide where the grid gets reversed from. We would then do a rolling start to settle the grid.

Feature race pit-window would be pre-determined before the race begins, both on the forum and in the lobby. I'm also toying with the idea of having a ''double pit window'' format, where there are two narrow pit-windows to chose from during the race, but you may only use one, to introduce some strategy to the race.

Car choice is completely free before the season starts. There will be no teams championship, just a drivers championship. Any driver who changes car during the season will have to start from the back of the grid for the next Sprint AND Feature race.
