Well seeing as the break week has disappeared (which makes sense to be fair), guess that means 'Jack Wins' will have to be moved to a later date.
Though I think 2 weeks after the end of this season (November 12th) could be the date to hold it, also give me a bit time to create some solid plans for things like track & cars combo possibilities, Jack I'll probably PM you about this in a few days once I've done that as I think you should get a big say in this since this is a night in your honour basically.
Moving on to future league matters though we know Xmas cup is up next and I imagine theres already plans in the works for it (I think I remember Bl99dy mentioning a while it was going to be a 5 round affair this time), but I was looking at the calendar in December and 2 of the Thursday's in that month are on the 24th & 31st, which ain't exactly socially good to run on, 24th will surely have to be a non-starter as for some people around the world 24th is treated like xmas day, also I'm not sure how many would be free to race on xmas eve anyway.
Then you have the 31st which is new years eve, normally for me thats a night I would either go out and celebrate but considering the state of things with covid currently and the likelihood we're all going to be stuck indoors anyway there might be enough people who would want to see the new year in by league racing lol.
Finally something that I've banging the drum about in the past and will continue to do, I'd still like to put forward the idea of a Rally/Oval combo round in the xmas cup as that's 2 racing disciplines that our league still hasn't done a single official league race off, so it would kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
How I think it could be done both races would be split down the middle on the night so two 30 minute races, with the Rally tracks I don't believe there is a pitlane on any of the 3, so there would be no fuel or tyre wear also if you wanted qualy you would have to have a regular session (as I remember cars being parked on the track when your not driving).
As for a potential Oval race there can be only one real track candidate and that's Blue Moon Bay Oval, as much as I would love the uncertainly and randomness of Route X 30 minutes would be too long there, Northern Isle Speedway I think people would get dizzy by the end considering its a half mile oval, so the only option has to be BMB Oval and by extension you the co-ords would have to decide how you would want the oval race to be like, there again 2 choices either go with a car and tyre combo that makes T1 & T3 both full braking corners or focus it more towards keeping the field spread as tight as possible, ie pack racing.
