yes this topic is precisely to launch ideas, then we create a group to finally develop something definitive.

  my points system is based on the ratio of the 60s,

the 1st has 1/3 more points than the 2nd place and 1/3 more than 3rd place ( 9-6-4)

if you only have two servers the ratio would be ..... 86,57,38,37,36,35,34,33.....

Lord's ideas about scheduling seem appropriate, (post #40).

Why are there various proposals about points?
What "issues" are there?

Top 30% earn points? It could be 40%.
Or could be points earned among all entries for laps completed regardless of place?
Points for pole, fastest lap, points for most advanced from grid, most advanced during race?
Points for top finishers by marque?

How would a point system encourage entry and participation?

If the option is to award points as they were historically in r/l, why is this concerning in this case?

nothing too serious, just an isolated idea,
can be only 9 6 4 3 2 1
an idea about a participation of 3 servers, 30 40 pilots, with a 70% finish in the race

while in the 1960s the index of mechanical problems was high.

If there is points incentive to continue and finish it could make for better races?

IRL, probably the correlation of significance to point systems is the size of the prize and how it is distributed.
This will not likely be the case unless it is agreed to accept donated modest or commemorative contributions to the purse.

With no respective purse the point system could be freed up to represent a broader reflection of the event, such as described in my recent post above.

Some race sponsors pay show-up money and for laps completed in the main event...the GPL 2018 WC could pay for that with points instead of cash.



:D

My main concern is what how you combine two races into 1 result. Assuming we'd split the field by FP laptimes, the second split is going to be the slower one. So awarding the same amount of points as the first would be unfair in my opinion since the winner of the second split would most likely not make the podium in the first.That's where the whole thought process started for me.I'm happy with 9-6-4-3-2-1 & 1 for fastest lap. Just not sure how to award them across multiple splits.

Not understanding the two races into one result idea.
This is because...?

I assume you're having 7 races because of the 7 cars? How about this so you can run 11 races and use all the track.

For the first 7 races, you have to use a different car. After that, you can pick any car as long as you haven't scored any points with it.

This comes from the assumption that grids can be larger than 19 cars. Which leads to the question how do you split 20+ cars in a fair way. I've suggested using laptimes as the metric. Based on this you'd end up with grids sorted by speed.Now it seems unfair to me to award the same amount of points to the same place on a slower gird than a faster one. So some way of putting performances across grids in perspective would be nice.
