All the threads about overtaking, whether it's a good thing or a bad thing, and what could change, has got me wondering. I think that we all have slightly different ideals.
So I'm inviting you to invent a hypothetical racing series. It's NOT formula one. But what would give you the best racing spectacle? High top speed or High corner speed? Close battles? Single-Spec machinery? Fast corners or Twisty technical complexes? City-centre vistas or hilly topography? The world's your oyster.
(but let's assume that driver safety as a priority is a given)
I'd like to see a racing series with :
-Small light nimble cars
-Zero or v little aero downforce
-Really thin pram wheels with tyres made of wood
-Brakes made of cheese
-Wide open regs
Hmm, sounds like i've invented F1 circa 1967 so far, but also...
-Limited fossil fuel & battery energy allowance
-Unlimited energy harvesting, including KERS, solar, wind power etc.
And because of driver safety, there would need to be lower speeds involved in such a series. But that's okay, because top speed is less interesting to me than the challenge of low grip
How about you?
