  8. Are we postponing, canceling, or combining for this race? There are only six drivers.

  11. Maybe combine with the Cup grid on the 20th? The problem will be of course if we have more than 10 Signups.
     

  12. The question needed to be asked Friday 20:00GMT I'm afraid. Lack of information from all sides is more worrying :(

    Had no time to find a setup for Suzuka yet so cannot race competitive. If the race does not happen tonight at Suzuka I would like to propose a 50% race OSQ with engineers default settings at Silverstone instead. 20:30 GMT
    Sign ups before 18:30GMT:thumbsup:

    Looks like this league is going down the pan which is a shame.

    It's 'cos we split the leagues by pace and evidently fast doesnt mean commited. If we had made the league up based on attendence we'd still be near enough a full grid.

    Thats what we should do next season. Im sick of racing the first half of the season with complete time wasters that wont complete the season. Happened a few times now.

  17. I won't be doing another championship season next year. Finished 2nd in the main championship twice 2011/12 and dont know where ill finish this year but unfortuntley like Stirling Moss ill never be a champion.

    Feel sorry for anyone who has been putting a lot of laps in for this race, thankfully i didnt.

    Colin Knowles said we should of done a championship with the people who actually turn up every week instead of fast drivers who start crying and quit because they dont have a chance of winning anymore.

    I also think its fkn stupid that after watching Silverstone all weekend we get a flight over to Suzuka!!

    If i find the motivation and get the new game this year I'll be happy to be a reserve driver for next season.

  18. I agree. This is what the grid(s) would look like if based on attendance alone. The list is based on the attendance (and seniority in the case of Zach and I) of those who started the season, so people like Craig who just joined are not on the list.

  19. I'm not likely to make this either Chris. Il try and get back for it if it's still on.

    I hold my hands up with some responsibility for pushing for grids based on pace so much at season start to make both grids more competitive for all.

    There has been a select number of drivers who have repeatedly signed up for championship in particular at season start and do one after a few races. Harsh or not, I don't care, these drivers should be shown the door to another league.

    Many if not all the drivers in cup race for the fun of racing, I wish the same could be said for ALL of us in championship.

    I'd happily race in cup with a handicap, ie 2013 performance etc..rather than racing some who think they can turn up, win, dominate etc only to realise thier mouth is bigger than thier speed and consistency. Hot air, and a penny short.

    Let's remove the dropped results for starters. I've always thought this is bollocks, and I'm 100% sure @Graham Jarvis at least will share my sentiments, and based on attendance over the last season (s)

    Hmmmm seems like a few were unhappy at the way the league was being run. I doubt if it's going to continue if its in this state. I know a few have dropped out because of wheel trouble which is understandable but people need to sort out if there commited or not
