I thought the same thing at various points whilst writing what I did last night. It could be perceived as just us guys near the front throwing our toys out of the pram. But ultimately from the 2010-2012 seasons we had no control over our teams and simply gave TMLW an entry with a team name and two drivers and away we went. I'm all for this greater involvement in the series, but it must come with an opportunity for us to make our views heard.
This is something that has happened, and it's good to see it's been done in a civil and and respectful manner. I'd like to thank all those that have contributed over the past day or so in the discussion, because it seems we've made some real progress.
I'm not convinced about the pre-qualifying cup though. TMLW ran the Aguri Suzuki Cup during the old incarnation and it died a slow death after about 5 races. With the credits as an incentive that probably won't happen this time, but unless someone is prepared to run it properly then it's not worth it. I think it may be better to keep it more simple by having credits awarded through one system, in-house, and overseen by Aerond.
That's right Eddie, that was me with the banner, Spanish GP, 2002. This pile of legal forms won't fill itself in you know...
