Discussions on future myKART enduros
Folks - just want to kick off a discussion in relation to future myKART enduro events.
As I mentioned in [url=http://my-kart.org/web/index.php?q=node/81]another forum topic[/url], we would like to have a quarterly enduro.
Azlan's response quoted below for convenience:
Fazz & I were toying with the idea of holding a Quarterly Enduro which would also count towards individual's league points as well.
The idea's still sketchy but the Enduro will run more or less along the same format as MyME, with the following difference:
- you enter as individuals, not groups
- we then ballot individuals into groups, in other words each team formed will compose of randomly selected members....you will quickly need to make friends with your new team mates and quickly formulate a strategy based on your team's situation
- to ensure fair distribution of weight, individuals may be places into 2 or more weight categories, names put into a hat, then ballot.
so, for example, to form a team for Kart 1, the organiser will pick names from hat A (featherweight), hat B (middleweight), hat C (heavies...yeah), etc..
so, once teams are formed, the rest of the event runs very much like MyME.
You will then score individual points based on how your team finishes, eg 1st place, all team members score 20 points (or less?) towards the league table, and so on....this will add up on the the points you score for individual races in between the Enduro...
In summary , the above hopefully promotes more team work, team spirit within MyKart (ie you really have to work closely with random team members), the balloting of teams also eliminates the need for late penalty if a team member does not turn up on time, etc, and despite being in random teams for each Enduro, if you are really good individually, you should be able to score points in the team, and even more if you foster team spirit and encourage the "slower" ones to improve...
Anyway, these are my ideas, .... pls comment, add more ideas, or tell me if it totally sucks..... in any case let's generate ideas for a more exciting 2005 season! (yes, anti-clockwise racing IS an option this time!)....
Some ideas rolling in my head include:
[*]format: 3 x 1 hour races & swap karts
[*]2 hour, 2 driver enduros (this was done by a group on Sunday 30th Jan)... looked interesting... although the karts may be shot by the end...
