PostSubject: ** RULE CHANGE FOR ROAD COURSES **   ** RULE CHANGE FOR ROAD COURSES ** Icon_minitimeMon 7 Aug 2017 - 16:46

The admins are announcing a rule change for the 1988 CART Series going forward:

- All remaining road course races will not feature full course yellows.

While this may seem like a positive development for some, the reality is that it is not. The admins are forced to take this step because the standard of driving on road courses in this series has dropped to a very low level.  The "H" in "HSO" stands for historic, and this is the key reason so many of us are passionate about racing here.  So naturally, we, the admins, are disappointed that we now have to run historically inaccurate races to accommodate several drivers with bad habits -- drivers who keep on triggering excessive, needless yellows; ruining the fun for the others and forcing those in mainland Europe to stay up very late on a Sunday night, thus negatively affecting the following work day.   

This rule change does not mean that we will be turning a blind eye to bad driving. We will continue to issue warnings and race suspensions as we see fit.  The point of this rule change is not to lower the standard of driving further, but rather to ensure that the drivers who are of high quality can have an enjoyable race and get to bed at a decent hour.  We hope this announcement serves as a wake up call for those who contributed to this situation, and will hopefully now try to improve their driving habits.

Thank you.
