Topic: 2018-2019 Championship Season

The calendar is saying we're already about halfway through September, so it would be in our best interests to get the 2019 Point Series Championship underway.  We would like to get it started with the first Odd Thurs in October, which would make the kick off date Thurs, Oct 11.  The question is, what are the classes we will run?

We will decide democratically this year- pick the four classes you would like to have run and either post them here or send them to Al or me and we will count them up.  We would like the voting to be complete prior to next Odd Thurs, so get your input put in by Weds, 9/26.

Remember, our classes have been restructured and some have been modified starting this year.  Below is a brief summary of the eligible classes:

Class 1 Div I  - Classic Sports Car through 1967, Div I (14k, flat chassis)
Class 1 Div II - Classic Sports Car through 1967, Div II (18k & pods allowed)
Class 3 - BRM 1/24 Group C - Box stock with the allowance of alternate gears.
Class 4 - Trans Am - Scaley motors, some parts swap/mods allowed.
Class 6 - Over 50 - not everyone has one but it's still a class we have on the books.
Class 7 - Can Am - RTR stock to scratch built, hard bodies, 23k max motor
Class 8 - Le Mans Classics - restricted brands, stock motor; gears, axles, wheels, tires can change, some mods allowed.
Class 9 - GT3 - Scaley GT3 cars only, minor tuning allowed
Class 10 - BRM Classics - Box stock
Class 11 - BRM GT - Box stock
Class 12 - Carrera DTM - no-mag, BOSA rear tires, and lead for tuning
Class 13 - BRM Trans Am - Box stock
Class 14 - USRRC - see Can Am but 21k max

and then the evolution of the GT class, now known as Sportscar Era classes:
Pre-Ground Effect (PGE) Era - Full-fendered sportscars from 1968 through 1980, 22k motor limit
Ground Effect Era (GFX) - Full fendered sportscars from 1981 through 1993, 22k motor limit
LMP Era (LMP) - Full fendered sportscars from 1994 through current, 22k motor limit

And last but not least, the Open class (otherwise known as "Thunderslot" class).

The above is a quick cut and paste summary and may be wildly inaccurate.  The full rules are here:

http://naste.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=630

Visit them to ensure you are voting for the class you really want.  As an aside, F1 has too broad of a spectrum to include as part of the championship.

There are a handful of classes on here where not everyone has a car, but in the interest of full inclusion, they are included in the voting.

I believe I set the poll up to support selecting 4 options but that may not be the case.  If it's not, please either post your votes for all to see or email them to me or Al.

We can review the direction we're pointed at on 9/27 and ratify the decisions, and then it's game on for the series!

Look forward to your input.

Chris

Sorry- forgot to mention that I clearly couldn't get the poll option to support all the classes.  Please do what Doc did and post up here or email to me and Al.

Re: 2018-2019 Championship Season

Going back through this, I should have split Classics Div I and Div II into separate voting options.  If you have voted for one of them, please specify your preference.  If you truly have no preference, your vote will be applied to the "leading" division.

Monte/Stan - Please edit your vote options if you have a preference.

Re: 2018-2019 Championship Season

class 1 div I
class 1 div II
7 - can-am
8 - le mans

Re: 2018-2019 Championship Season

Can Am
LeMans Classic
GT-3
DTM
LMP

Re: 2018-2019 Championship Season

Class 1 II

Re: 2018-2019 Championship Season

What happened to "F-1" class(s)? I would still like to run them.

Re: 2018-2019 Championship Season

Classes 3,5,4,1 for me

Race cars are neither beautiful nor ugly. They become beautiful when they win.

From the initial post in this thread: "F1 has too broad of a spectrum to include as part of the championship."

The thought was there was such a diversity of sub-classes and a disparity of performance between them that it would be tough to run it equitably as a championship class.  The class(es) will still be run as part of Odd Thursdays but they won't be part of the championship.

Rico - Class 5 is not eligible so please choose another, and please specify which class 1 you would prefer.

Re: 2018-2019 Championship Season

Oops I used the number of votes I meant class 8 LeMans Classics

...and now that I am about to count your votes, I need to know which Class 1 Division you would like.  I should have just given them separate numbers.

Div I or Div II?
