Ballast for tonight:
Latest standings (plus preview of dropped-scores) together with ballast for Suzuka on page 1 -news
Round 8 Monza
Variante del Rettifilo - the grid start of race 1 saw the field negotiate the tight 1980's chicane, braking hard from high speed
Round 8 Monza
Curva Vialone - AyrtonSchumacher (Sauber) and Sig (BMW) would each leave Monza with a race win
Round 8 Monza
Historic category - M1 and Flanked lead several Group C cars as they compete for the championship title
Suzuka and Le Mans
One of the key aims of the series was to emphasise the Le Mans/endurance theme, not necessarily through sheer number of laps but through elements such as time settings and circuit selection.
Each half of the season is essentially self-contained in order to maintain equality of car performance with regard to the mid-season car change. The races are designed to become tougher as the season progresses - an example being the first half whereby the racing ended with the tricky Laguna Seca and then at Spa, the location of many classic 24 hour races.
As we end the second half of the season, the final two races are at Suzuka (latest 2014 format) and then Le Mans. Suzuka is recognised as a difficult track while Le Mans will be raced in a 24 hour format for the double-points finale.
In order to allow good time for preparation the format for Le Mans will be as follows:
Race 1 - daytime sprint (20 mins)
2009 no-chicanes format
Cars will be racing flat out all of the way down the Mulsanne straight recreating Group C history
Race 2 - 24 hour endurance (60 mins)
2009 chicanes format
Race will begin M3 pacecar at night
The formation lap will also act as season end celebration
A night-day-night pattern will be followed overall

Unfortunately I will be unable to race again in this championship due to my wife giving birth to our baby daughter. I thought I could be racing again this weekend but its just not possible.
All the best to you all and may the best man win the championship!

Hi, will there be a second season and if yes, when?
Hi McCauley. Looking to run second season. Estimate start at beginning of Feb.
Update for Le Mans.
Race 1 2005 no chicanes
Race 2 2013 chicanes
Race 1 2009 no chicanes
Race 2 2009 chicanes
Between all of the variants there are minimal changes but it is more logical to use same one for both.
Why change ?
2009 and 2013 are essentially the same. However 2005 first corner is marginally different.
Running 2009 should make it easier for everyone plus runoff is more forgiving.
2009 is easier and 2005 first corner is really interesting.
I'm waiting for your final choice
