    Looks good. I can imagine one of the challenges will be communication. People might get confused about what room they're supposed to join, particularly as some don't know right until the last minute whether they can join or not

    I like the fresh idea but who's to say someone in Room 2 or 3 doesn't have a better race then some in Room 1 (may be better on a certain track) and get disadvantaged in points. Or are points allocated based on overall finishing time across all rooms?

    Definitely sounds interesting, though a little bit confusing as well. But hey, I am easy and open to (most) things!!!

    yes someone who has a better race in room 2 than someone in room 1 is disadvantaged as they will score less. But likely next round they will be up in room 1 and able to score more points than they would be able to in room 2

    Hmm ok definitely viable. But I guess technically there would only be 1 overall winner across all entrants?
    It would also take away a little of the prestige of winning a championship for those that are the equivalent of the current Div 2/3/4/5 entrants

    there would still be the div 2-5 winners but they would have the opportunity to get bigger points in higher rooms

    Ah ok so graded into a division at the start of season but with the ability to move up and earn greater points with good performances. I like it

    So based on this idea, I have taken the data @Matthyus collated on the total race time for all drivers from round 1 and done the calculations (adding 5secs for div2, 10secs div3, 15s div4 & 20s d5)
    Each driver who DSC, DNS or parks up, gets one round where this doesn't cause a drop to the division below (only exception is a DNS where the driver has informed they cannot attend in writing either on forum or psn chat pre-race - this can also be done by another driver)

    The drivers from round 1 who DNS and did not leave a message in writing were:
    @MINT_GTR
    @Cameron Neane
    @shaun0899@gmail
    @GlaserHalfFull
    @Mickez123

    So in this instance, if we were running this format, is what the rooms for round 2 would look like:

    ROOM 1

    Worth a try, with a bit more data behind it

    @Hatfield so penalties are carried across? Without it I would have been 10th at Tsukuba. It's good if it is. Might make people think more long term about pulling risky moves (or Mezzy moves lol). :thumbsup:

    What about A & B classings in each divison regardless of size to give guys lower down the table something to race for, maybe it will help keep numbers higher during the season this way.

    Or even a rookie championship like how Indycar does it for new drivers to that division.

    So split the div in 2, A first 8, B second 8? Changeable as the ladder changes I suppose.

    Taking @Hatfield's proposed model for Season 13, and using his post of the round 2 starting line up plus data kindly supplied by @Matthyus here's what the other rounds we've run would have looked like. The drivers in blue are those the did not start and are on their first allowed drop round. Those is red had DSC the round before.

    @Hatfield this going to need some process planning as there's a bit of admin required to ge this right. You'll need to consider what happens to drivers who miss rounds where they have nominated and also what happens to drivers that miss consecutive rounds w/o notice but then return.
    I'm working on what the points standings would using the new points system too.
    Oh, and @Matthyus, really appreciate your work each week. :thumbsup:
