I just want to share with you, of a slightly new form of racing that we currently are using with great success in our club.
 
With the latest version of LapMaster, a new "Team race" mode was added. However this is team racing with a twist.
 
We are actual racing an individual race, and a team race at the same time.
​Each driver uses his own car and races for the straight-out individual win, just like a traditional race.
But at the same time, the racers that are assigned to be a group, also​ count towards a cummulative team count​.
 
Usual we pair strongest driver with least strong driver, then the next two, etc., or sometimes we just set random teams.
Usual we use two- or three-man teams.
Racing like this has made it a lot more interesting because:
  • Each race usual produce three winners: the individual winner, and the two winners of the team race. ​(And usually, the middle team can be a winner = shared success)
  • The better racer is motivated to help out his less capable team driver in order to get the best possible team result.
  • The lesser racer has to man-up in order not to completly sink the team.
  • When you marshal, you have a much higher interest in the race, since your teammate is propably racing.
  • The LapMaster team mode let's you follow both the individual and the team race in real time.
At least in our club, people are very happy racing this new mode.

​The idea was given to me from one of the LapMaster users, "Claus." Thank you for suggesting this great idea.
