I agree with RATT, a combination of young and experienced. Some of the younger drivers go a bit too gung ho and end up trashing the cars but then on the other hand maybe some of the older drivers aren't as hungry for the win and perhaps their reflexes etc are a tad slower than the other younger guys.
I'm not sure about the international guys, Max Wilson for example can put in quick times but loses on consistency and stupid errors.
I think drivers should do like an "apprenticeship" first. Start off in Go-karts, progress through to Formula Ford/Holden and then maybe if they are good enough the Konica V8s. Run them a couple of years in that and if they are say within the say Top 5 of the field let them step up to Level 1 V8s.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
