Time Limits might be imposed in SCARTS races.

Post by Burnout on Sun Aug 08, 2010 7:21 pm

In effort to reduce cautions and lengthy red flags, SCARTS is proposing to enact time limits to get the races done quickly. We will still use the lap count system, but there will be a maximum time set for each race to get the race completed within.

If a race that had 15 second average laptimes went caution free for 200 laps, the race would take 50 minutes. Of course there is fuel, cautions and red flags and that will be accounted for, but those will fall into a '20 minute grace period.' So for this race described here, I would set a 70 minute time limit to get the race in from green flag to checkered flag.

Now 70 minutes should be fine for most of our tracks, but of course that value will fluctuate depending on the track like Dover.

We might enact this for the upcoming races at Michigan, so please provide any input.

Good Idea..It is a common concept used in most actual racing series...we don't need another marathon like Pocono..If we could of had this there the race would have finished before the initial server crash

Burnout, think about it though, extend it to 90 minutes and I will be satisfied, I mean what happens if we still get caught in a server crash or something or we are still running the race under green. We have had a lot of races that go on for more than 2 hours.

90 minutes is acceptable, everyone should be alright with that
