Rookiecup For what it is necessary Rookie-Cup?

For what it is necessary Rookie-Cup? To obtain the licence, many will answer. What to do to people who cannot obtain the licence? Never probably they will obtain the licence. Very many people take part periodically and not constantly. The full season goes nobody. What for it is necessary then the total table? Why it is impossible to make 3 championships on 12 races, instead of 1 championship on 36 races? Periodically, in the end of the championship (spring, summer and autumn) to give licences to people but to leave behind them the rights to reach championship Rookie-Cup till the end of last 12 races (spring, summer or autumn according to). To define the champion following the results of Spring, Summer and Autumn. Many will try to go either in the spring, or in the summer, or in the autumn. Who as can. All rules to leave the same. To me personally has already bothered to go for the sake of an estimation. Many failures occur because of inadequate actions of contenders (which do not warn that at them the car is damaged) and my big ping (I can do nothing with it).

The Rookie Cup isn´t there to find a winner at the end of the season....

What position you are in at the end of the season doesn´t matter.

You can be first, but you have, e.g., 500 penalty points....
No one will give you the licence for that "success".

And there are 36 races, beacuse the real Nascar Sprint Cup drives 36 races, too...


The RC is there to gain experience, a fairly driving style, and car control.

Some drivers show that they can drive and get their licence after a few races, others drive like hell and need longer to get them...

The number of races does not effect how good or bad you drive...(like what I wrote above)

Let there will be a high-grade championship, instead of that we have that now. I will repeat, the total table what for is necessary? I began the championship, and I did not think that will leave half of racers in the season beginning. The majority of good racers has left, very much it be not become interesting to me.

Obviously the results have to be uploaded somewhere, and while we're at it, we can also sum them up into an overall points table. Furthermore, these standings allow you to see at a glance how many penalty points per race every driver has racked up, which is among the things we look at when it comes to license promotions.

I understand your point.
but I think your motivation has to be to get the licence as soon as possible and nothing else.

A table will probbably only result in even more risky actions of the drivers and even more yellow flags.
on the contrary, the table should be removed (or better: just visible for the admins but not for the public) exactly because it gives a wrong idea of what the rookie cup is all about. i also had the wrong idea when i started here... and we will not be the last ones... :rolleyes:

as long as you don't cause to wreck others, don't bother about others wrecking you. the admins will notice and consider it (I hope.. :)).

regards.

It is possible to make penalty points board.

It is possible to make penalty points board.
... but it would be extra work, someone would have to do. The DB is there and can be used, so we use it. It's just a few clicks (and some typing for the penalties), and the DB gives us most of the info we like to see (when it comes to checking numbers).

We could think about hiding the DB so that only admins can see it. But other Rookies still like to take a look. The easiest way would be to just ignore it. It's there but it's of no interest, since it's basically not relevant for any kind of official championship.

Btw., the RC went a long time without DB - and the Rookies always complained about it ;)
