Also, to close the year, I propose a race on the last Sunday before Christmas, December 22nd. A race where some drivers who never ride together (example : Fleurke Vs Joao, Farina, Palud, Dulima, Sosa, Gardner or Fierroford) could, for once, oppose each other.
At a time when there were still 5 French-speaking championships, from 2007 to 2013, I proposed a race resulting from the "MultiGPLigues challenge".
Also, this year, I would like to renew with this period by proposing you an invitational race that I would call "GPL World Masters".
These invitations concern the drivers I consider to be the best of this year 2019, those ranked in the top 16 places in the "GPL World Ranking".
The format of the race would be as follows :
.Date : Sunday, 22.12.2019
.Vroc : 20h15, French time (GMT+1) - Training : 20h20 - Race: 20h50
[Another hour can be discussed (as long as it doesn't lead us into an endless debate).]
.Track : TBA
.Training : 30 mn
.Race : 1h - the number of laps will be specified when the name of the track is announced.
.Cars : F1 1967, free chassis.
.36 or 60 fps (To be specified).
For the moment, the Top 16 ranking is as follows, at the end of September:
1 Robert Fleurke - Interested
2 Joao Marcon - Jonny O - Interested
3 Enrique Farina - Interested
4 Miguel Palud - Alboretto
5 Eduardo Lima
6 Frank Miele
7 Tristan Bot
8 Pablo Sosa - Interested
9 Ulrich Hofmann
10 Paul Skingley
11 Clive Gardner - EvilClive
12 Claudio Callipo
13 José Fierroford
14 Yannick Verheijen
15 David Rainier
16 Tim Roedl
Seeing the current (points &) ranking, we can consider that the top 9 are already almost certain to finish in the Top 16.
Obviously this ranking will still evolve and, if it will be definitively closed after 18.12, we will already have a very precise idea at the end of November.
In the meantime, to be sure that this race can take place, I need to know if a good number of the drivers concerned are interested in participating.
The top 16 will be directly qualified to participate.
If there are pilots who cannot or will not participate (which is obvious), the next ones, from place 17 to 30, will be reservists.
They will therefore be able to complete the grid.
Here are those, who currently could be reservists if their ranking is maintained.
17 Iestyn Davies - Interested
18 Ricardo Silva
19 Donnie Yourth - Lance DeBoyle
20 Tames Oud
21 Axel Cookie
22 Clive Loynes
23 Roy van Drunen
24 Andreas Gebhardt
25 Patrick Cornu
26 Mario Wilhelm
27 Eric Bilodeau
28 Andres Oggero
29 Alain Maurice
30 Andre Jahren
Future qualified or reservists, if you are interested, please let me know here, indicating at the same time, the track(s) (Papy, a number of 3, max) on which you would like to see this race compete (and if you prefer 36 or 60 fps).
It is your vote that will determine the choice of the track.
Here, if you are reading this subject, do not hesitate to report it to other drivers you know in your leagues who would be concerned.
The success of this initiative will surely depend on other proposals I would like to make to you for next year.
