SPECIAL Press Conference for the SNAIL Super Formula Series.
Good afternoon my fellow drivers. Last Wednesday was the first test for the SNAIL Super Formula Series as much of you know. We learned a lot about the cars and the races and we realized changes needed to be made.
For starters we will be delaying the start of the season by another week. It was scheduled to start April 24th but will now begin May 1st.
On April 24th we will be doing another test to lock in our new race package to further make the series better.
We had 2 45 minute races and I do not believe an Endurance style race is the direction we need to go. We will leave that to the official Endurance Series. With the huge popularity to the Manufacturer & Nation Series we have decided that shorter races will be better.
The new schedule will have two 30 minute races instead of 45’s. The room will open at 8:30 and race 1 will begin at 8:45. With a 30 minute race (in lap form) the race will end hopefully at 9:15. 9:30 will start race 2 and we will end at 10:00 EST. It’s not like Sundays when we all have the entire night. The new format cuts out 45 minutes of unneeded time. Wednesday’s are a more difficult time to make so shorter races will make it easier to commit.
With shorter races we will be adding more of a mix. Before the rules were use Racing Hard & Softs at least once with Fuel at x3 and Tires at x5. The NEW rules will be all 4 Racing Tires (SuperSoft, Soft, Medium, and Hard) will be available. You must use at least 2 compounds of your choice. The fuel will now be at x6 & x7 for the test races, and Tire wear will be at x19!
This Wednesday we will be holding our 2nd test on April 24th at 8:30 pm EST with 20 laps at Barcelona & 19 laps at Dragon Trail - Seaside.
I hope everyone enjoys the changes. I hope everyone can make next weeks race and if you didn’t enjoy last week or maybe you did, come on back and try it again. Thank you to everyone who helped last week, the data and way everyone drove I watched everyone’s race and learned ALOT. So next week we will try again.
I really like these changes and I'm looking forward to next week's test race at Dragon Trail.
Oh, and thanks for letting the Endurance Series keep the endurance style all to ourselves!
