PostSubject: [PROPOSAL] NASCAR omnium   Fri Jul 27, 2012 6:29 am

Most of you may not know a single thing about track cycling but I think the sport is pretty cool so I've tried to replicate its newest addition to the Olympic schedule for online racing in NR2003. The discipline is called omnium and it's a 6-event discipline where both pure speed, strategy and consistency counts

Here it's the format of competition

NASCAR omnium


1 - FLYING LAP
Standard qualification procedure
Daytona or Talladega

2 - POINTS RACE
10 5-lap dashes, top10 get points (12-10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1)
Those 10 get to the back of the grid but reversed in the cooling down lap. 2 laps (cooling+formation) between each dash
1.5 mile speedway

3 - ELIMINATION
5 race laps to warm-up, then the last driver retires after every lap. No restarts
Daytona or Talladega

4 - INDIVIDUAL PURSUIT
5 consecutive flying laps in practice to add time. Always 2 cars in the track
Bristol

5 - SCRATCH RACE
1 standard race with a mandatory pitstop. No yellow flags
Roadcourse

6 - TIME TRIAL
3 consecutive flying laps in practice. Lone car
Indianapolis

POINTS ARE SCORED IN REVERSE
The driver with the lowest number of points scored wins

If there's a tie in points, all times of the time trials will be added

In the time trial sessions order will be reversed so the leader in points knows which times are the ones to beat

What do you think about the event??
Do you see it doable??
Would you change the tracks for one or more events??



PS : if this is doable I may think about adding the extremely fun and chaotic madison discipline or a team time trial (4-car drafting in Daytona to get the best time!!!)

Any opinion about the actual event??
The main of the event is too find the omnium (total) NASCAR driver. It could be a season-ending thing but since the Olympic omnium will happen during the next week I think it could be a good idea to give it a first try

PS : it should be done in 2 days. 3 events per day

It's actually an interesting idea, it seems like it could be a cool thing to do, if the interest is there. It's not one of those "OMG WE MUST DO THIS" ideas, but it's something kinda cool that we could look at doing on the side.

It's not a bad idea at all, could be entertaining. Who knows?
