Gridding via points vs. entry date
« on: April 06, 2011, 03:09:42 pm »
What is the logic behind CCS gridding race events by order of entry received?  It seems to be more fair if grids were set based on points standings in that class followed by received entry date.  This rewards the person who is working hard to attend the events and get good results.

Hell, yeah!  It's a financially competitive market for grid position.

Grids are small enough that it doesn't even make a difference.

Just trying to keep us all safe.  Being a lonely 2-stroke in a sea of 4-strokes makes coming off the line much harder to do.  Big 4T twins are so much easier to launch than my bike.  I have zero toque until about 7,000 to 7,500 RPM and then it hits hard.  I either wheelie or bog off the line.  But, once rolling she runs pretty good.

I personally would like to see the grids set by lap times.

For me it doesnt matter. Being on a smaller displacement bike I get killed on the start and many times get stuck behind them going into T1. I typically get by a few of them at T1 but lose out again on the straights.

They like to do it by entry so folks sign up sooner I suppose.  It should be really easy to obtain grids from those timed practices.   Shouldn't be too much work right?
