    So, I’m still confused so I am going to guess on a few things.

    Qualifying starts, “EVERYBODY enters the course, and the scorekeeper goes, this would mean that nobody is in the menu. How do we determine who goes next, and then next and then next?

    Do we just wait till someone goes? If nobody goes then 3 of us decide to go, then we have a cluster outside the pits, then others in the pits would go, then more of a pile outside of the pits, then we are back to the old system at that point.

    The old system had us lined up and we knew who was next. Now we have no idea who’s suppose to go.

    There is no who goes next. This part is taken right from the text.

    Once the scorekeeper has begun his out lap and qualifying, all drivers lined up on pit road will leave pit road and create a sufficient, 5 seconds, gap to the car ahead and behind during the out lap.

    Everybody but the scorekeeper and host leave the pits at the same time and build the gaps during the out lap.

    Now that the bullet point before that one is gone it all makes sense now. Before following the bullet point ahead of the one you posted it read and sounded different to me. Thank you.

    With Broad Bean combo around 40 seconds per lap, the max number of drivers per qually should not be more than 6

    With the Scorekeeper going first in the first group and the Host going last in the final group, the Rest will split up evenly between the two groups. The easiest to identify your group is to look at the list of drivers on the right hand side while you entered the race, but you are still in the lobby screen. The Host will be No.1 and you will know who the scorekeeper is. (For example: if you have 11 people in the room, then lets assume the scorekeeper is no 4) With 11 people in the lobby, the first group will be 6 people and the second group will be 5 people. When the host types to "Start Qually" the Scorekeeper (No 4) Press "Enter Course" and immediately starts the out lap. When the next 5 people (Nos 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7) see the scorekeeper goes, they all press "Enter Course" and immediately start their out laps. During the out lap each one builds a sufficient gap to the driver ahead before they start the hot laps. (With such a short track I recommend that you try and exit in the number order and make sure to have a proper gap early in the out lap so that you are not compromised on your hot lap. Do not try and draft the driver ahead.....)

    The rest of the drivers remain in the lobby screen and follows the progress on the track map. The second group can start their out lap any time after the last driver in the first group started his hot lap. The host will type when the second group can start. They (Nos 8, 9, 10, 11) all leave at the same time (followed by the Host (No 1) and quickly build a gap to the driver ahead on the out lap before they start their hot laps.

    If you have 13 or more drivers, then you need 3 groups

    Advantages: For Round 1 the total qually time might be similar to the previous procedure, but at least you will start your out lap on hot tires (especially the second group). I think we will save time on Round 2 and Round 3 qually plus you will start the out lap on hot tires.

    The 50 sec count down is to save time.

    The reason for the time saving is to make the races slightly longer. We now have a 13 minute limit on race duration vs. a 12 minute limit in the past.

    All hosts should start tonight's racing at the scheduled time. The only reason to hold the start is to give someone who was already in the lobby their three minutes to return from the time they left, provided they are believed to have been disconnected, or to sort invisible driver issues.

    @JLBowler @Rednose58 I am liking the new Qualifying format. It went through smoothly for me as Host for everyone to sit in the pits till the clear is given and each driver just exits the pits automatically starting the qualifying. No need to pull off to the first turn or so the way the previous format was run. I don't know if others like the new format for Qualifying but the new format is more stream lined if that makes any sense. Able to as well to monitor if any non members come into the room. Under the previous format, i would have to leave the track and back into the lobby if a non member entered the track on official race night but the new format makes it easier to tell if a non member enters the track and more faster to take care of the issues in the room.

    The below data table applies what I call "JL's formula" for determining laps for a 13 minute race based on mid-division lap time.

    -> “15 second laps for a total of 52 laps”
    Maybe if you take the Tomahawk SRT with 2500 hp on the shortest oval? Okay, I can shorten the table.

    While it matters not, I would be remiss if I didn't say that the S2k at Spa is one of, if not the most enjoyable driving combo I've seen in a very long time.

    Great call, Kg. :tup:
