bmw22 Posted March 10, 2008 Author Share Posted March 10, 2008 Before I write this reply, just remember that I'm looking at this from both sides of the issue and as the administrator of the series. Carl referred to adding other makes as "dilution" Yes, he is right, it would be diluting GTS as we know it. But there is another form of dilution to look at. What if someone starts the ERS (European Race Series) in NASA. Chances are, it would be a 13/13 series similar to GTS. Therefore, it would most likely be on track with GTS. Now we have 5 more classes of cars running times similar to GTS times. We just multiplied the instances on "out of class racing" Also, the "ERS" would be open to German cars....we are already loosing existing and potential drivers to the 19 classes (slight exaggeration) for 944 and E30 cars. In this new ERS, they would be open to any car from europe, without limitation. Have you ever seen an SCCA Prod F,G or H race where the track doesn't get oiled down by some over bored british car? As far as the difference between a 2000 Lotus with a 11 to 1 p/w ratio vs a 3000 BMW with the same p/w ratio....... we can always adjust the rules. In the end, it's going to come down to more makes in GTS or more classes on track in our run group. This fall, we are going to decided this one way or the other. Your opinions and suggests count, so keep them coming. As a GTS racer, I lean towards not making any changes. As the National coordinator, I am split right down the middle on this, I see the pros and cons of both sides. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
