Re: V8 supercar qualifying

Wow, at this early stage, 100% of people have said yes. That's pretty conclusive!

Re: V8 supercar qualifying

As a poll starter i will not vote but
IMHO it would make the qualifying more interesting rather than a flying lap with enogh fuel to finish the lap but not much more
with the big enduro coming up you would need enough fuel to make the first window thus seting up a X stop plan before the race has begun would make for a intersting bathurst or other enduro

Re: V8 supercar qualifying

i said no because, If it aint broke dont fix it. the one thing i really dislike about F1 is not the fact that they have to use the same fuel loads and settings, But the commentators "i think schumakers running heavy today, which is good for raikkonen because he's running lean"

i know it ads more "excitment" but c'mon they do get annoying.

Re: V8 supercar qualifying

No .Leave it how it is. We would never see the fast laps that the drivers are doing now if they were carrying 1/2 or 2/3 fuel load to make it to the first stop in the race. Cant wait untill this afternoon ,will a sub 2.07:00 lap time be possible if the conditions are right.

Re: V8 supercar qualifying

I do not want V8's to follow the path of F1. I like it the way it is...

Tongue Re: V8 supercar qualifying

I say no, because you can't always get a "Hot Lap" in qualifying. Imagine if, everytime you tried to punch out a quick lap, and you were half-way around the track when suddenly you come across someone swerving from side to side trying to heat up their tyres. Or even just a slower car that might be in your way. You need to give the fast guys a chance to show what they can do when there's no traffic around.
