NZST R7 Ruapuna 24-25th Nov Mike Pero 350

Not long to go now so probably as good a time as any for a fresh thread.

I see the format for Ruapuna is the same as it was for Taupo. i.e. The co-drivers also qualify and there are 'pik n mix' grids.

I do prefer this format as it benefits teams that search out quality co-drivers and is point of difference for the series

I see Ruapuna has fitted more timing loops so there will be sector times

Good work Ruapuna fellas!

Also looking forward to seeing some full on racing compared to R2 now that ST have introduced their 'racing line' driving conduct rule.

The sector splits is a cool thing, and hopefully something that TV3 can pick up on as well, especially if there is a T10 shootout.

Either way i am sure this event will provide a perfect end to a very successful year for the ST guys

I think you may find that not to be the case. I understand they are reverting to the Taupo qualifying format.

Buggar! oh well, it'll still be a great event no doubt, and also one that many Cantabrians are talking about right now

Must say though a T10 shootout is always good for the watching

Whoever he is, his cheque-book will precede him.

Thanks nistfan, I see it's on the ST website now. That's great news, I was disappointed that Davison was not able to race in earlier rounds due to the Andy Knight debacle

Got to ask, why change back to a formula that people didn't like. I would say that change the nomination time of the race driver to the day of qualifying so you can get it in the Sunday papers and out on the internet so the fans can know when they get to the track.

I heard that they had changed it slightly to accommodate this.

In this format it should be interesting, but I have to say I did enjoy the Shoot Out at Pukekohe more than Taupo qualifying.

The team must nominate which driver will start Race One no later than 30 minutes after qualifying. The grid for the first race will be based on the qualifying time of the driver nominated to start.

Race Two must be started by the driver who did not start Race One. Grid Determination for that race will be based on the qualifying times of the driver starting.
