Normally, we try to bump the races around for our season to avoid the big US holidays that have people out of town and create smaller grids. I don't want people to need to decide between their favorite track and a family gathering.

The holidays we normally have to address are the long weekends, such as Labor Day ( Sept 2 ), Memorial Day ( May 27 ), and Independence day ( July 4 ) . I'll look over the calendar and see how things fall this year. Please give me your input so I can consider everything as I make the schedule.

It looks like We don't have a conflict with Labor Day, since it's not on a race weekend. July 4 is on a race weekend, but it falls on Thursday so there should be no party conflicts. Memorial Day is on a race weekend, so we might need to move that one around.

I've been considering the schedule. Even though it's a big " get out of town " weekend for the US, I don't see a good way to move it. If I move it back one week, we only have 1 week of practice for the GP of Monaco after Spain. I don't know about you, but I need all the time I can get for that damn track. So, I'm for leaving the schedule as is listed , as far as that weekend is concerned. You guys need to flood my mail box if lots of you are going to be out of town.

Now, there are some issues with the schedule. Maybe they won't mean much. It's the gap between some races and that 10th race which is a TBA...

We have 3 weeks between Malaysia and China. We have three weeks between Bahrain and Spain. Three weeks between Canada and Britain. A MONTH from Turkey to Spa.

Is anyone going to the Canadian GP and wants it moved ? We could push it one week forward and then have just a week to Silverstone. Just a thought. I don't think we have any active Canadians racing anymore, so this may not be an issue.


Please let me know in this thread or via PM if you have a preference.
