Last year Patrick van Driel did a wonderful job of organizing F1 support races during real F1 race days (Sundays).

I would like to know if you would like to run such events again this year.
Currently 3 mods are available for this; CTDP 2006, MMG 2007 SE or MMG 2007 PE.

In the CTDP2006/MMG SE all cars perform the same. The PE has differences in car performance. If those will be run, we have to think of a format who drives which car, or switch cars after each race...etc.etc.

Input, input . I need your input. But please be realistic, we must be able to manage it without too much effort.

Thanks for advice/suggestions.

MMG 2007 PE is the best out of those 3 mods in my opinion - however we would have to have a system where you can only drive a car once then you have to change to keep it fair.

I would like to use the PE version, because it just seems more realistic to me that cars perform differently to each other. But then I may be in a minority of people who would happily drive a Force India for a season.

The intention is to run separate races, not for points etc.etc.
I prefer the MMG PE too, its more uptodate. Mandatory changing of car for each race would do the trick. But for now the other mods are open too :)

Input about format is welcome too. Tracklist, Race format, Setups (fixed/open), etc.

I suggest do the track that is on that weekend, half race distance one week and for the next event run the full distance, open setups as fixed might be horrible for the track.

well,if we're able to find the officials tracks of the season,and if they are all legals,than we should follow the official calendar to me.50% of the real race could be good enough,and open setup for more challenge,that's my 2cents:)

Agree on the tracks/setups :)
If someone can have the task of searching for Tracks and download links we can be prepared for the 'season'. We might run a test race next weekend already :)

The majority of the tracks are all available. Not sure on up to date configurations though or tracks like Singapore. Be cool to do that track though under floodlights.

I have a much better version of Spa, but its converted from GTL so i presume we aren't allowed to use it.

The Nurburgring comes with the game too :)
