    Swinging away from the animalistic options.

    Bracket or heads up. For the two day meetings (most of them) how about running bracket on one day and heads up the next? Sportsman tree for bracket and Pro Tree for heads up. Similar format to Top Sportsman. I am sure York can handle the different routines, they do it all day in any case with rwyb, HRG and Super Cup (Pro Tree), Sportsman/Pro/ASS (Sportsman tree).

    Why do they have 2 different trees? To bracket race on a Pro tree would always give the slower car the advantage as to sit is stage for a few seconds waiting for the tree to run it is difficult to get a good reaction, whereas for the slower car they know pretty much when the tree will run, when both cars stage. Sportsman tree offers no advantage.

    all the other series are bracket racing, we dont need to make this one another. this would take away any advantage of having a faster car and then the slower, more economical cars would win every year by having the advantage off track and no disadvantage on track

    but would it attract more poeple?

    and who are we trying to attract? have we actually tried telling them about us or would we be changing the series just on the off chance they might see us?

    I just added the bit about why there are 2 trees in answer to your earlier question.

    Overall I think the Pro Tree, Heads Up format is the way to go.

    Im hoping for a bit of HRG and Super Stock, bracket and heads up. That way I can prove the car may be slow but at least the drivers rubbish too!
