    Still not enough sign ups though, and we'd have to do placement tests amongst other things, would have to push the season back 2-3 weeks

    If enough people show interest it wouldn't be the worst thing to take a week to sort it out and get the most amount of people on track. I did it in IRS for the Blancpain Championship and it worked quite well. Have people submit time trials

    Definitely keep an open mind about it. I'm not gonna tell you what to do but I would suggest being open about the idea of two lobbies. It's tough but can work out if you get a really large group. If you have 16-20 I'd say stick with one lobby and a few reserves. There's always someone that misses a week.

    We could also just split the one lobby and run 2 pro/am classes

    What timezone league uses? BST/GMT?

    I will sign up as a reserve, possibly open for full time if spot opens.

    We could but if someone gets spun off or something, then how would you count it?
    Good suggestion nonetheless

    Firstly. We would have to do placement tests, because to run 2 splits we'd need 28 sign-ups, incase you haven't noticed, only 16 get in a lobby.

    Secondly. An exhibition race, would not just be impossible, but silly, if there is an incident and someone who has the pace to be in a pro split has their race ended, what are we gonna do? Put them in am?

    You don't just have their finishing position to go on. There's also where they qualified, their fastest lap and their overall race pace which can seen on replay. I get that it's a lot of work but it's not actually impossible. Just a lot of hard work

    Do you even know what a placement test is? A 7 lap stint in your car of choice at two circuits, taking the fastest laps from both circuits for data.

    You could rank also from past experience, considering that the large majority of drivers here know each other from other series

    Cut entry list to 2 groups, 2x 30-minute sessions, random track, no fuel/tyre wear, just flat out.
    30-minutes should be enough time for drivers to show their pace, and admin can publish final entry list with reserves based on those times.

    I'd be interested in two lobbies if the car selection list grows in openings to accommodate for such.

    If you get taken out and therefore relegated to Am split that isn't a fair representation of your pace. This leads to you losing a round while your actual rank is sorted, and causes more headaches for organisers.

    Your statement is puzzling because it's so ignorant, and also because you should know the potential headaches that come with running and organising series'.

    Where did anyone say that nothing is meant to be taken seriously? It's all about context.
