    Default Formula Ultra Qualifying?

    I read in the Jan 14' minutes, that the Eboard decided to use the last Saturday practice, as a qualifier for Formula Ultra. Could use some clarification on this change. The notes indicate that this is just to determine grid position; meaning the normal points-based rules aren't being used for this one class, or will there be a minimum lap time in order to grid for the class. Also, how does this affect the Sunday FU race?

    It was my understanding that this will be used to determine your grid position

    Sundays grid position would be based on your finishing position on Saturday

    Any idea about why the change was made? Is this a one time thing, or will it be every round?

    So are they doing this for all classes for the 1st race then? This is the way we did it in AMRRA they just took your practice times for your grid at the 1st race of the year.

    The last Group 5 practice on Saturday will be used as a qualifier for the Saturday Formula Ultra class only. There is no min/max laptime, it's just used for gridding position for the Saturday Formula Ultra race. Also remember, we do the 4x3x4x3 grids at The Ridge, vs 5x4x5x4 at Pacific.

    We'll bring this up during the morning riders meeting, and then get the racers input during the General Membership meeting at the track that night. If you are interested in applying this qualifying practice to all classes, let your rider rep know, or attend the General Membership meeting on April 26th @ 7pm in the pits at the Ridge.

    for now this is just going to be in FU and if it goes well look for it to be added to other classes too in the future

    What if you're practicing in group 5, but not racing in FU? You're not out there in practice to set a blistering pace, but maybe to shake down some new settings?

    I can see this being a huge cluster.
