If we only have a (normal) 12 race calendar, that makes 4 outings/circuits.

Half the fun of racing is to visit as many circuits as we can in any one, or two, years. Different challenges on different circuits make for a more interesting/fun year. If you're just out to win a championship, then ok, but the majority of us are out there for enjoyment & the taking part. We need the fun element to keep grid numbers up. We are not professionals aiming at progressing up the ladder. We need variety & reliability.

The other half of the fun, for us, is the social side of the paddock. We do actually look forward to seeing PEOPLE. If it's only a few times a year we may have to find another way of gathering for a giggle somewhere else.

You've made some very good points - but I'd like to think that we can get back to "Normal" being 14 rounds rather than just 12.....

How about on Triple headers (and Double headers?), if a driver can't make the 2nd/3rd race for various reasons, then the club issue a part refund of their entry fee?

I can hear the 750MC accountants taking a deep breath....

The Club does the pre-season test day at Donnington. Another test day mid-season could be useful for giving potential competitors the chance to try a few laps in a 750 car. Especially if the sessions were shorter and there were more of them. The detail would need some working out but in principle a 5 lap taster session would be enough to enthuse anyone likely to join the formula.
