So I guess you like DRS and push to pass?
Bad idea...so artificial.
^ Nobody wants to be consistently spanked time and time again on the racetrack. That's how people get turned away from running in a series or class. Yes this is "club" racing and not pro, but there are guys who can wheel their cars pretty well but just don't have the funds or car to be competitive enough to run at such a high level or as consistently as the usual front runners (Ex: E36's usually struggle to stay at the front in GTS3 because of the E46/E92 M3's wider tires and more broad power band in detuned form). Give the mid-pack cars a taste of the action of being in or closer to the front. Similar to World Challenge where you get rewards weight for winning/or finishing up front.
Nobody wants to see the same damn cars winning all the time (it can get really boring). Good example for this:
Mercedes-Benz in Formula 1
Some of the best battles often take place mid-pack, so wouldn't it be a bit better if they were all near the front doing that? That would surely get more people riled up and wanting to watch them run or possibly join the class in the future too.Pros:
-More of the mid-pack cars get a shot at what its like to lead or be closer to the front of the pack in class.
-Drivers may pick up pointers/skills as they watch the front runners on what to do and what not to do -> could make them better drivers (or at least go a few tenths quicker each lap)
-Even closer racing/battles to remember and learn from= more of a positive outlook on the GTS class/organizaton.
-Better for spectators Cons:
-Extra weight will probably use up the tires faster grip-wise (BUT on the other hand, this may teach drivers how to manage tire wear and learn how to conserve the tires while running at 9/10ths or higher)
-People might purposely start to sandbag lol
Just my $0.02 here.
I think it'd be something to consider by NASA. Great idea Hi Speed!
