richard migliori Posted December 29, 2009 Author Share Posted December 29, 2009 SCCA runoffs are like the sprint nats, not an enduro format. it could be compared to nasa sprints. So, where would you format a qualifier for enduros when some regions don't offer the chance to qualify? It sounds like this is one of the last q's to be discussed. Some ideas already posted: Sprint races 1 enduro min 1 year competition driving without incident So, what would the reason be for a qualifier anyway? It is all about the bottom line and making the event profitable. It is not a good idea to turn down customers ( racers) when it is about putting on a show for profit. What if a racer decides a month before the event that he sees the entrants in his class and decides he can't finish any better than 10th place and then sees he can have a chance at winning the enduro class but did not do some qualifier? He stays home, doesn't enjoy the National experience, and Nasa loses an entry fee. The only time a qualifier would have a benefit in racing is when the demand exceeds the number of positions in the race. That is not the case here. When you know you have 70 positions and you have 100 entries then a qualifier would be required, or a lottery draw. RM Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
