Dave, I like the idea of Lemans start.
Let's try it!

I'm good with it too! Team Dave Powell and Dale Minnett combined age of 124 years! ( Might need a few steps head start! )

While the idea will certainly be fun to watch, I see potential problems when we file onto the track with moving rigs at different speeds, so I am not in favour.

I'd prefer a gridded start,but eliminate the empty row between the rows of rigs in each class.Only keep an empty row between each class.

I am neutral. If you forced me to vote, I would go with whatever my driver says.

I can run, and we need all the help we can get off the starts. I'm in as long as the exec ok's the process.

Thanks to all who responded on this. It seems to only have mediocre support at best so maybe we can revisit it when sidecar racing becomes too boring :D :D :D
The trouble with trouble is that it starts out as fun.

I don't think race control would allow this to happen. Having moving obstacles on a hot track (not temperature) while sidecars are frantically roaring off the line seems to me to be an unnecessary danger.
A risk vs. benefit analysis would deem this unsafe.
Why do I have to be the old fun ruining fuddyduddy? :?

I'm just saying, this would make Dean or Chris drop a steamer!

It would! But, there's nothing explicitly forbidding it. On a personal level I think it's a fun idea, but on a CC level I really don't like hearing about bad knees and bikes that don't idle... I have to admit it makes me nervous too, just not "Steamer Nervous". :)

My bike doesn't idle ( no idle circuit) so it would have to be started which it doesn't like to do lol. And getting mounted onto our sidecar is not a quick process. I'd like to carry on with the normal gridding procedure.

I agree with Andy .... it's a nightmare finding neutral with our Z1 engine ..

Sounds like you may need to take a look at the shift star on the end of the shift drum.... RZ350s and Banshees have this issue too. You can google Banshee shift start mod.
