    A 110% race @ms20. Always looking to go that extra mile!! :-)

    I wonder whether it would be quite cool to change the order a bit, a couple of ideas I had would be either:

    1) Reverse season. Start in Brazil, end in Melbourne
    or
    2) Align some races to race weekends. For instance on 9th September, we do Monza, having just seen it live the weekend before. That would be more complicated to work out than the simpler reverse season option.

    In terms of the season length I think 20 races, with 5 dropped makes sense, and with those breaks suggested I am confident that I would be able to attend enough races to make it worthwhile this season. I can only see myself missing 2 for certain based on what i know now.

    I’m not that keen on 100% race distances, but am happy to go with the majority on this.

    I can’t do the 15th of April for Sprint, but happy to miss it (I’ll be in France).

    I could do tomorrow, but I think that might be somewhat short notice?

    Also, if we’re starting on season 4 on 22nd, when are we going to start choosing teams for Season 4? Will we use the same method, e.g. everyone picks top 3 team preference, and then championship winner gets top pick, and so on?

    @strunk27, you fancy trying to tie up the Sauber seats for season 4 if its possible?

    Cheers

    Season 4 Calendar

    Im Quite Happy with it the schedule. Do we need 2 breaks especially if were having 4/5 dropped scores too.

    Date wise i think if were going to do 100% races the calendar should be looked at so the races we do at 100% are separated out. A Vote will be necessary once we’ve all got our views across.
    Maybe Canada, Belgium and Japan? As that’s a bit spread out. Having races matching the real F1 schedule could be pretty cool too but happy with your current calendar to be fair just throwing idea’s out there. As for how many 100% races i say between 1 and 3. “No double points” If we did 3 races we could have a 100% championship table on the side perhaps?

    Dropped scores
    I’m happy with 4. That’s enough

    F1 2012 game
    Yep we have to stick to this game.

    @lemon @infernojim @ljkobrien @kvothe @mrgrieves, @McWoblin, @powderfinger, @strunk27 @ms20 @Sparky2315 @jonny705 @dazzaarcher @cscottyf195 @dazza1782 @mat-k @i300rn-5urv1v0r @roblo97 @zsmokey @power

    Keep your ideas coming everyone! What do people think of @infernojims calendar ideas?

    @infernojim Just waiting for more responses to the awards/feedback questions before I announce the results. I will then set up the new forum and wiki – I’ll ask for team requests once that’s done (same process as last year – think it worked really well!)

    @roblo97 ok, I’ll put you down as a reserve driver for next season as it wouldn’t be fair on any new drivers that join us if there are no seats left. That ok?

    @mrgrieves some suggested that they would like breaks during the season even with the ‘dropped scores’. Just making sure everyone’s happy! 😊

    I like your 100% race ideas – it would be like the Atlantic/American Open (Canada), the European Open (Belgium) and the Asian Open (Japan). Yeah I’ll ask for circuit preferences with your team choices in the next forum!

    Yeah I suggested having a few breaks not only to benefit those that cannot guarantee turning up every week, but also for the times when a few get a little frustrated with their race or the game itself. I obviously had that five week period away where, at first, I was busy but afterwards had little desire to put the game on. Maddog I remember you hinting towards the end of the season that you were a little fed up of the game. Sometimes a week away can be a nice refresher.

    On the subject of infernojim’s ideas, I wouldn’t mind a season in a different order, but I wouldnt’ want to start with Brazil as we’ve just done it. I am, however, definitely in favour of number two. I used to run a league of my own and the entire basis for our calendar was when the actual races were, running our events in line with the real Grands Prix and then slot the races that weren’t on during the season’s timeframe in the ‘off weeks’. It worked a treat. After each real race, most people had an immediate desire to jump on F1 and hotlap the track they’ve just watched on TV.

    @jonny705 yeah I just got annoyed with the bugs in the game towards the end of the season.

    I do like the idea of a different season order – Means we would start in Bahrain on 22 April though as that’s the race on the weekend before. I’ll create a mock calendar alongside the calendar that we have now. I’ll be interested to see what you guys think.

    @mcwoblin dude we’ve started a new forum: havent heard anything from you so thought you weren’t interested in continuing – http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/groups/f1-games/forum/topic/f1f-xbox-360-world-championship-season-4-new-drivers-needed-12-days-to-go/

    Unfortunately 17 seats have already been filled. You may have to take seat 18 – which means there’s a possibility you won’t be able to race at some races if we have a full 16 grid. I held off long enough to let you choose your team but had to let all the new drivers choose theirs! – sorry dude…. Get your confirmation along with your team choice from those remaining up on the new forum!

    I’m writing up the results for the awards tomorrow so get them up before then if you can!
