    So far Friday or Saturday nights have been floated, would be good for those who have expressed interest to indicate what nights are likely to work for them.

    Maybe put a poll up? Help gauge which night works best.

    To be added or to replace an existing round? We would have no option but to run the combined circuit as it's the only long track that has pits.

    Also up for discussion will be how to run the lobby, my thoughts were to run both practice and qually, or perhaps an extended qually session to allow people to fine tune setup for the conditions. Nords and perhaps Le Mans would require an extended qually anyway due to time taken just to do one flying lap.

    there is a glitch in effect that if someone is continuing to tune when the session countdown expires the room freezes up as it's loading the next session (the ever swirling red icon in the lower right of screen), seen this a couple of times online now

    Just a thought and I could be the minority but what say the races all go up by 15-20 mins (1hr 20) as while 1hr can be classed as an 'enduro' our races in season at the moment take on average 40-50 minutes anyways don't they? I don't know just something more that could perhaps help further differentiate itself from the normal stuff in the seasonal leagues and give it even more 'identity'?

    I do agree from a strategy point of view as it may make fuel strategy more of a factor which would be good for enduros.

    So increase the 1 hour races to 1:20, Bathurst to 2 hours and leave Le Mans at 2.4? And are we adding a 2.4 hour Nurb in November?

    Glad to see I ain't in the minority :D

    but yeah benny that sounds good having a 2 hour Bathurst race in the month of Bathurst seems fitting, maybe make le-mans 2.6? but mind you 2.4 hours is a long time as it is. Keen for nurb as well.

    Oh man I hope I'll be able to squeeze into this series, sounds awesome already!

    OP Updated. You wanted marathons, you gonna get it. Might be wishful thinking, but if we get enough interest we can always run 2 rooms.

    I don't see any way to add a vote to this existing thread, I'm guessing I would need to start a dedicated thread to have a day vote?

    Maybe it would just be easier for me to ask, who wouldn't be able to run Saturday night?

    I think the best idea is to organise a team before people start putting down car suggestions. It’s called the teams championship for a reason :p.
    1) get a team of four together.
    2) work out within your team who’s driving what.
    3) provide those details to Benny.
