Egg 2020 VASC Calendar

The summer series seems to have gone into hiatus...

...yet there are pressures from existing contracts, timing of the Grand Prix, and an as yet unexplained desire to put a long mid season break in the middle of the championship

Story Here

Perhaps the new season will start in January.. maybe it won't..
Presumably the teams might like to know like soonish to plan car & parts builds and/or sales deliveries, leave requirements and any other thing..

Forda should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The summer series push was a ridiculous concept.

If that's been put aside, then any revised alternative based on the current series has got to be a better option.

They should schedule every second race somewhere overseas with a capable wind tunnel in close vicinity - complete two races, adjust parity, complete two races, adjust parity etc.

My preference would be to adjust parity before the season, but I'm not as intelligent as the men and women who decide these things

Mid season break has been explained many times - team members actually need a break, they're gagging for it now but if the calendar starts earlier and finishes later than now, then the break will be sorely needed.

Amazes me that the author of the story thinks that a night race at SMP might suit January - with daylight saving and the long summer days, that would be a LATE starting race!

Yes, those breaks have their uses. It’s common sense, but must be done at the right time.

A night race would be good, but again that must be the right time

If they spend the millions on permanent lighting at Eastern Creek and run the race in January they realise that only the last 40-50 minutes of the race will actually need the lights right?

I hardly think the lights are going in for the Supercars race, that would just be a bonus
