during the last month (without having any electronic time system) our most favorite Race mode was a group-race where a group of drivers have together reach a lap-target against another group.

Itīs a very good system if you have different skilled drivers an different cars on the same track - first qualifying and than mixing the drivers for equal teams.

Is there any possibility to include this funktion in the programm?

When driving without time system every driver counts the lap numbers of his team loud when going through the finish line - for example red 1, green 1, red 2, red 3 .....

so everbody in the Race knows exactly where his and his opponent team stands - this makes really a funny and exiting race atmosphere.

the same would be nice with voice output of flipside software - team name an lap number would be enough.

If it helps to donate it would us be worth around 40 Euro for having this feature.

I have given this some thought and poked around in my code a bit. While it is an interesting idea I do not think it is something I can work on any time soon. It would take a lot of changes and additions to the software for this to work well and not something that I think would get much use by clubs.

Thanks for your suggestion though, I always appreciate new ideas even if it is not something I can immediately use.

Our group also does odd types of races.

We have done this style of group racing in the past, and again, we just yell out the Team Name & # when we go through the loop.

Another thing we run, is a relay race, basically a racer goes around 1 or two laps, then the next guy go's. We typically have 2-3 in a team.

We set the race parameters to a lap based count, and the first team to 20 or so wins.

We basically end up doing it in a small group of two.
We use normal race results to pair one fast racer with one slow racer in order to keep the teams on par.

All these types of races are fun, and that's what our group likes to do, is have fun. =)

I'm really interested in having the qualifying option working, then e can do a qualifier and easily see where to place racers...
