    Hi all.

    Since I no longer can attend Sunday Night racing I thought I would try my hand at hosting a championship on Friday nights to get my racing fix.
    I'll be testing the waters to see if anyone will be interested in my Friday Night Awesome National League, "Friday Night ANL" for short. It will follow the calander times of whenever the Sunday night races come down on (but on a Friday) and it will use the same car and track selection as the main event also.

    What differentiates it from the main Sunday course then, I hear you ask? The championship will focus on hard and fast sprint races. Here is a run down of the proposed championship.


    • 7 rounds over the championship
    • Each round will consist of 3 races.
    • 1st race will have a 1 lap qualifier for grid placement.
    • 2nd and 3rd race will be reversed grid based on previous race results.
    • At this stage I will probably use/steel Bryan_F Success Ballast system for handling handicaps like he does for his TCR series as I feel it worked pretty good. But I will be going a little further with it. A percent ballast will be given to a driver based on their championship position. How far down I go is something I will closely monitor. A percent power buff to the bottom racers is also being considered.
    • Standard Rooz room settings and rules apply

      Why you should sign up:
    • It will lesson the amount of time needed to practice for different races and cars. You'll literally be practicing for Sunday Nights race while you are having fun with others.
    • This is purely focused on close racing and race craft. The faster guys will really need to hone their skills and momentum once the ballast system kicks in.
    • You get 3 chances at glory.
    • The slower guys will get a chance to mix it with the best at the top end of the field
    • I think it will end up being a light hearted fun event in the lead up to the main event on Sunday night. So grab a drink!

    Chuck your name down now for some Friday night action!

    I'll put myself down as a maybe at this stage, only because I'm not sure if I will be available EVERY Friday night, but most of them. So sign me up, and we'll see where this takes us :)

    I'm liking the layout of sprint races and ballast system to equal things out :thumbsup:

    The abbreviations make the mind wander, but sounds like fun. Interested depending upon race start time and I'll likely miss a few

    Really the thread is just preparing you for the inevitable rear contact that will occur when someone misses a braking point.
