I'd like to poll this to see what the interest would be.

Seeing as there were quite a few that can't race because it's a Week Day series, I'd like to see if we could move the finale to Sunday the 2nd of December.

Would that be something everyone would want or agree with?

It would of course mean that we will have a few extra cars available just like back in the day when the big long races were hosted.
We would also allow for shared rides and make the race a bit longer (so that everyone driving solo would still be able to drive but to make it worthwhile to run as 2 drivers if you'd be so inclined).

It's when the series isn't run on a Saturday or Sunday. Several of our American friends can't drive on weekdays since the races goes ahead at midday for them.

So it would be fun to extend the grid and make the event a little bit more special and lifelike Smile

I was kinda thinking about doing at least the final race, but this might prove difficult as I might be away that date.

We'll see.

Now that I have committed on doing the rest of the races, I too am in favour of moving it to a Sunday. I would probably race that Wednesday too, but do have to go up to work at 6 in the morning the day after (will meet this years' Nobel prize winners at the museum I'm working at (just saying)). Suspect

Seeing as a Majority of the field seems to agree with changing the date to the Sunday I'm sorry to any of our full-time drivers who may not be able to compete on a Sunday evening.

The Wellington Event is now set for the 2nd of December. It'll also be around 2 hours, meaning that if someone would want to drive as a Duo, that should be possible.

I'll post the thread for the race as soon as I can after next round so everyone has time and chance to practice beforehand.

Can be the date changed also at HSO website? I have a friend who maybe want to take part in that race, if it's on 2nd of December. I can't race because of different event there.
