    Hello Jussi, why changing the schedule? Last year's was ok - saturday 2wd + sunday 4 wd. Wrenching on and driving 1 car a day is more than enough - especially for an old fart like me. Controlled practice at sunday is imo wasted time. And truck class - why not? But make it a Fun class for everyone - kids, wifes, mechanics.... qualifying at saturday + mains on sunday best regards from Germany Ebi

    Hello Ebi,

    Thanks for the feedback! We decided to change the format for couple of reasons. First was the guys driving only 4WD. Now they would have to come to track on Friday to get some practice and on Saturday they don't have anything to do. Second thing is promotion. Now we can promote the Sunday for public as it's the finals day. The third reason is evening programs as this format gives us more flexibility with the schedule. For example we can move one round of qualifying to Sunday.

    I think you can wrench one car at a time as the plan is to drive all 2WD heats first and switch to 4WD will be done after 2WD is completed.

    The problem with truck class is that we don't have trucks in Finland, so I'm a bit afraid that we don't get enough participants. Maybe we can put it there and let's see if someone sends an entry.

    I hope this answers your questions.

    Thanks,
    Jussi
