Slow series

Since a couple of people have mentioned they'd like to try out some of the slower cars, I figured it was worth seeing how many people are actually up for it. I'm thinking something with staggered starting times (mix of night, day and transitioning), and at least some random weather since it seems to have worked so well.

Also, if you are interested, can you vote for which "slow" car you'd prefer to race (would be a one-make series).

I wouldn't be in a position to start it until the last weekend in October anyway so time to work things out.

The kart is a zippy little thing, but nothing like as evil as the 125cc. The Caterham can be a handful in stock form, but I hope my tune (on here) has made it much easier to run. Only run the Ginetta once and that was just after launch, but it seemed reasonably tame. And haven't run the Clio or Formula Rookie so can't comment directly on them, but other people on here seemed to like both.

Wouldn't be interested in the Kart or the Caterham but any of the other three would make a good comp imo.

Clio leading at the moment. I think that we're currently at 4 who have voted plus 3 more who have registered an interest (including myself), so it would be nice if we could get that sort of numbers in the field.

For the record, if there's a tie and it comes down to a casting vote from me, I'd go with the Ginettas, but if there's a majority for one car we'll go with that.

Looks like the Ginettas then.

As I can't do next week, I'm thinking practice/test race on the 25th, then a 6-week series around the UK tracks after that which should lead us close to Christmas
