    OK guys. Tonights race although fun was rather low turnout. I have a feeling it is because of just finishing the Mini league so with that said do you want to continue with the mini friday events or try something different for a few weeks??

    I voted yes because I've always loved the close racing of the Mini events. That said, I haven't actually raced them in AMS because I'm not usually free on Friday evenings at the moment. (That might change soon.) Perhaps attendance will drop for a short while because people are taking a break after the championship? It might pick up in a few weeks as people want to get back to the fun. Even if they're dropped as a permanent feature, maybe run them once a month or something. Be a shame if they disappeared completely.

    I seem to remember we had a drop after season 9 too, then numbers went up again... Ross idea seems quite good to me, switch between Minis and 'something else' for a while, but Mini Friday only once a month seems really low to me; every 2 weeks would seems more reasonable!
    What I like about the Mini Fridays is that you can easily come in practice and forget about the week, no need to practice a difficult combo a few days in advance...:whistling: So the 'something else' could be the new ARC Camaro, the Clios, some karts maybe? (The Caterham and F3 are already successful on other evenings...)

    Swapping cars sounds like a good idea to me. The Clios would be great now that the problems have we ironed out?

    I enjoy the minis, but I didn't sign up because I think 80 minutes is too long a race for these. Two 30 minute races would be much better, as these usually get boring as soon as the pitstops happen. Have a reverse grid race 2 and it'll be much better.

    I would love to do the mini races but sadly can't race Fridays. Maybe swap days with Thursday every now and again :)

    I plan to race in Mini Fridays regularly, so please don't get rid of it :D I also personally like the endurance factor.

    Well, they could still be Mini Friday with some slight variation. Perhaps half the time is the 80 Minute and the other half are two shorter races.

    We could replace it with something like SuperV8s, Formula Truck or even some V10 F1s in there.

    I like the idea between the 2x 30 min and the reverse grid on the second. switching with the Clio or something similar every other week could be an option too

    I want to come back next week but have been busy with workload and this week rebuilding the cockpit pedals!

    Maybe we should switch different classes and cars but maintain the mini Friday date!
