As ideas go, this... surely was a winner. See, what you do is, you make a balloon out of lead and then you fly it. Oh, it won't fly... well crap.
That brings us to our next invention, the Super Weekend. Basically, we will run some Majors events on the same weekend as the iRacing official endurance special events. The below survey results tell the story well, the idea is unloved, like literally hated.
To the drivers credit, many of them gave it a try and some warmed up to the concept, a little, but the overall results were obvious, turnout for the opening round was lower than hoped for and I think the Super Weekend is largely the culprit.
I am happy to announce that we have have worked with our broadcast partners and will be moving Le Mans and Spa. Le Mans will be one week later than originally planned and Spa will be 1 week earlier.

One of things we always try to do is highlight and support some charities that do wonderful work in our world. This week we are running for the Houston SPCA (chosen by Blake Reynolds)
From their website ~ For nearly 100 years the Houston SPCA has been Houston’s first and largest animal protection agency in the Gulf Coast region, providing more than a dozen vital services and programs for our community. Our mission is to promote commitment to and respect for all animals and free them from suffering, abuse and exploitation.
I am proud to say the extra qualifying attempts have resulted in $282 in funds, and $141 of that has gone to the Houston SPCA.
Thanks for your ambition and drive to do well! (in many ways).
