Big like for Simon
The week before would have been better for Victorians to combine with the Melbourne Cup weekend but beggars can't be choosers :-P

Expressions of interest are now being requested. This is to gauge what entries may be like so we can determine pricing and garaging requirements.

A brand new track, with a decent layout, I'd be looking at around 120 competitors to kick of negotiations.

What's the track density? That's vital in determining how many heats are required. Which is something the track promotor will want to know.

Are you running all separate U2L and O2L heats? Or combined heats and separate finals?

Track density is still unknown and won’t be known until they have certification.
Separate overs/unders will be determined on interest.

FIA track density is a factor of length and lap time, so my estimate would be around mid 40's. For good racing around 85% usually works well, so high 30's in each heat would be my target. Could get away with 3 heats (~120) but 4 would be better for the competitors.

Catch 22 on the separate U2L, if there's no separate heats then less will enter. I'd guess around high 20's with only a separate final and mid 30's with separate heats as well.

Not much doubt that there will be 2 X fields of O2L and 1 X field of U2L, that's 100 or so which should be a done deal, as long as the cost isn't too high. Too high a cost (which includes travel and entry) will reduce the numbers. Personally I'd be aiming for 120+ and 4 X fields and keeping the cost as low as possible, but in the end it's up to you guys. Totally confident it will be a great event and I'm really looking forward to it.
