Default Super Lap Series and Wheel to wheel

Let's hypothesise that a new track is ready by February or so of next year. If this comes to fruittion I am wondering how many of the old SLS and W2W guys would be around to participate in events and if we needed to charge a bit more if these folks would be willing to fork up a little extra cash.

Can someone do a survey?

We're all out of the SLS shirts. Ironically, I called Maui Bay T-shirts the other day to see if they still had our screens. They didn't, but the manager said he'll give me a good deal to make new ones. Probably after our first event we'll print shirts again.

That sounds like a good idea. How much time will you have?

The idea is to have another element to the competition. Elimination will be implimented. 3 competitions ending in 1 winner. Keep in mind we had an issue with slower cars that led to group division. Also, keep in mind the sponorship potential that will enhance the series. We want a good show, but at the same time accommodate practicing drivers.

Ideas are very welcome.

Definitely waiting for the day to come. Barry Raff said he can't wait; in fact, he said he's now going to think about parts for his 996 that'll be useful for SLS (or whatever you're going to call it now). I know that Mike Ward is dying for SLS to come back too - he's always talking about it.

Sad to say I only participated in the last SLS, but I had a blast and would definitely come out for this.
Problem being I built up my E30 318 for the SLS and then the track closed and I have since sold my E30. However, I'm sure I can get another car to play with.

I had thought about running SLS like knock out quali awhile back but forgot all about it. i think that would be the perfect format. its very organized and super efficient.
