In the prep for the whistler gtg I've been thinking about how the Whistler F1GP will shape up.

A regular grand prix weekend has 3 timed practice sessions, 2 timed for 1.5hr and one that is 1hr. I don't think we have with time for that and enjoy other sedan class racing so I'm gong to half those amounts. These are specific to F1 only and will be free of other cars.... which also means that F1s are only allowed on track during these practice sessions and keep other time free for sedan class.

FP1-45 min
FP2-45 min
FP3- 30 min

Qualifying sessions are timed events and have a knockout quality to them. We obviously will not have an entire grid of 20ish racers to contend with but based on attendance I will figure out a knockout format. Times and knockout example below and will have short breaks in between sessions for battery changes if needed:

(Based on 6 racers)
Q1: 12min-5 fastest move to Q2/slowest eliminated
Q2: 9min- 4 fastest move to Q3/slowest eliminated
Q3: 6min- timed for grid positions

The actual GP will be a timed event lasting 30-40min and can include a battery "pit stop "... I'm not set in stone about the Larry part but I would like a longer than normal heat to get the feel of F1.

Thoughts?

So as it turns out I'm going to have to cancel the upcoming Mini-Z gtg in Whistler.


I just got offered and accepted a big landscape reno/rebuild that will take up a lot of my time in September and part of October.

See you guys in late October, hopefully.
