New match Tour format thoughts

Post by 77fmod »

What does everyone think of that Match format?

My feelings are that they will not have the attendance they might be hoping for. It's a $95 entry and if you don't make the cut on Sat. you are done. $95 for 3 runs..

I hope they drop that idea..

I did a little reading:

It's 4 runs on the Saturday, if you don't make the cut you get two more on Sunday for the Last Chance Qualifier, then a shot at the random draw.

I don't like the idea. While I don't believe everyone should get a trophy for just showing up, "you're not fast enough, go home" doesn't fit into the spirit of what Autocross is. Leave that crap for IRL and Nascar...the guys that get paid to do this. We do this for fun. I already know I'm not competitive. Don't need anybody telling me I'm not good enough to participate.

MHO, YMMV.

In a word, I think it "sucks" :cry: I'll be "voting" with my car's lack of attendence, although I'm pretty sure my "hired gun" (son) could get into the final shootout on Sunday @ Dixie :P .
