I just don’t understand the drop offs over a series, do people turn up expecting to win then quit when they realise they are only 5th-15th fastest?  Undecided. It’s very frustrating, especially when a lot do zilch practise then complain the car or track sucks on the night  Roll Eyes

Honestly, If anyone wants to take on organising a series or races, be my guest, I’d rather spend my spare time driving than organising events.  nuke boat

To be blunt where is the fun in having to drive a difficult car, that many people don't know how to setup or drive or really have the time to put in 10's or hundreds of laps, on your own for 30-40mins. If there are not people of similar ability that you can measure yourself against and feel like your competing against then where is the incentive? and if grids start to decline it just makes thing worse.

To be fair we have gained a number of people who now race with us, so yes advertising does help. Try facebook, reddit as well, people dont seem to use forums and have created a group on facebook to run events/ leagues.

So guys, in result of all things happend to simracing, Mazda MX5 Cup in modern series will be, imho, an ideal choice. But now this series is in action in SRS site, which can disable some new possible pilots for UKAC. 3 servers is full of pilots each round. Very handfull and fun car for close racing.  
And yes, i still prefer 2x20 format for mazdas. But imho, not more than 6 rounds.
But better, give me an another such car , but paddles shift equiped!

PS . Maybe Jeff will offer something better?

I'm sure you will get close racing in mx5's but personally I'd find it hard to get too excited about practising or racing with one  sleep1

As for the Evoras or alfas being difficult to drive, sorry I totally disagree. I even posted setups for the Evora from the start and other than tweaking the tyre pressures I was able to be top 6 pace every round with it. Only my own lack of sim racing talent stopped me getting very good race results with it. Embarrassed

Fundamentally, You just can't turn up with no practise and expect to run well (for 95% of racers). It's obvious week in, week out.

You mean that mx5 will be dull for practice?  Wink
I thinked so too and after that i tested this car in Laguna Seca 50+ laps. And i can say that its not so easy to move this car enough fast and have a good lap time, despite the seeming simplicity in management  Smiley
It's was the reason that i've recommend this car for series  Smiley
But sure, i am not insist on this choice.

Is the Ford powered Lola able to run with the F330 P4 vs GT 40 vs Porsche 908 maybe??

Nice...:

No, we haven't. All that's needed is a double header test race. You can drive whichever car you want in the first race, but must then drive the other in the second.

Yes, i think that is wise (and fun). The same goes for the small block Lola, 330 P4, GT40 and 908.
As i recall we test raced the Ginetta GT4, 90's DTM, Lotus 72D, 330 P4 and GPL mod. All are usable for some sort of championship i quess?
MX-5 cup could be fun too, as long as it isn't too long of a scedule. (the "slow" Alfa's are great fun too!)

I'm a bit late to the party, but I'd vote for that all day every day

with the added kick - if one car turns out to be faster than the other, all fast drivers should be forced to upgrade to the slower car, just to make the grids closer
