Default SCITCC - Round 11 Willow Park Raceway

Hello fellow racers Round 11 will be run on the May 16th ... But as you all know the tires are almost done meaning track dragging so we will be doing two min heats so good luck to all!

In the Round 10 thread Monte advised that 4 cars are running out of tires:


"Cars that probably won't make 4 more rounds on the tires they have.

AJK
Lez
Barc1
difinity

The Barc1 car is to the point of the body already touching the track.

All the other cars not listed will make the finish line on the tires they have."


So, to my mind that means that 17 cars are good to run as normal - or, is 'normal' being changed to suit those 4?


Cheers, Tony. (who appears to be becoming a real irritant in Proxy Land lately - sorry....)

OK, I'll see what these guys want to do about their tyres and finishing the last 4 races.

Guys if my car is any problem at all please park it,I'm good with that, personally I don't think it's right or fair that any car should be having tyres changed at any point in a proxy.Theres no way you can replace tyres with what you started the proxy with.

Don't forget that Mitch58 changed his tyres before the start of round 9 so that number of 4 cars needing tyres would be 5 and 17 would be 16 normal......and nothing has changed that I know of to suit the mentioned 4 only 1

in F1 you get penalties for engine and gear box change... how do we work on tire change?

In most proxies I think it's a 5 points penalty for tyre changes.

Lez and AJK are OK to go until their tyres run out, then park their cars. I've been in touch with Difinity and he's the same.

I'll send another message to Dan (YHR) to see what he wants to do.

Cheers

Paul
