So tell me what you think of this idea...

No dual entries ever. You sign up for either one or more regional championships, or the national championship, or none of the above and pay the registration fees accordingly. If you DNF any day, but get your car fixed (eg: fuel pump replaced) before the end of the event, you're officially out of the standings as a DNF but you're welcome to rejoin the fray to gain the seat time we could all use. Due to safety concerns, you would be placed back into the sequence where you "should be" according to your speed factor and so on (steward's decision).

That would take a few bucks out of the organizer's pocket.

Note that unless you signed up for the regional championship, your result won't count against those who are signed up for it. So if Stig dual entered and won everything overall, he isn't going to affect the regional championship standings.

Would you want to allow anybody to sign up for the national championship along with one or more regional championships? It would seem kinda silly to be the national champion, and the central champion to me. Then again, competition may actually be stiffer in the regional championships than in the national!

You run the risk of having your results affected by someone who has DNF'd already, but if you ever DNF (er, when you DNF?) you gain the advantage of getting the seat time without having to fork over more dough so it's a give & take not just a give.

What do y'all think makes the most sense?

Cheers,

Jake that's the intent- you can get back into things as quickly as you can fix your car and have it OK'd by a tech (it would need to be at the next available MTC out).

Eric the new guys need the seat time the most. If someone was obviously crashing like you mentioned I'm sure the stewards would just tell them "no" and their license record would possibly indicate that we should not invite them back to play anymore ever. As far as the ruts from a non-points earning car affecting you while you're still in the hunt, there's no way we're going to stick fast guys at the end of the pack so if enough of you say you don't want to put up with that aspect of things even though it may work to your benefit at some point, then the whole idea gets scrapped.

More opinions are necessary. Speak up so we can look for common opinion, or an arbitrary decision will be made one way or the other!
