Mid week competition

as the title says just wondering if there would be enough interest in a lower class championship.

Would only be a small 4 week championship leading right into forza 4.

Just want to see who or how many people would be interested in racing

3 cars with slight differnace in abiltiy, the faster guys get the slower, the slow guys get the faster car, or if one make comp, 3 set-ups offering the slower guys a slight speed advantage and the faster guys with a st-up slower than the others.

Might be a little easier to do same car with 3 builds?
As ive found getting different cars 'right' is fraught at the least!

I may be up for this. I think same car with with differing front tyre sizes, tyre compounds, final drive gearbox.

Or just have the one build regardless of skill.

What has worked in the past, if you win a race, you get a "success ballast". But seeing as weight makes very little difference on Forza 3, then a HorsePower drop perhaps?

We experimented with using in game options and grouping with variable success.
The options aint tight enough (5, 10, 15, 20% etc) but might make the small amount needed OK for this? Losing 35 bhp on cars was noticable. Perhaps losing 5% off a 150 bhp car @ 7.5 bhp will still be fairly tight?
Needs experimenting with first

Like for like drivers of course.........not much good a testing a newbie Racing yourself, Mike, Warrior, Tricky etc etc
