I think that if it were a timed event, where points were awarded seperately from the subjective judges scoring, based on the time taken to complete the course.... people might be more interested. A "knockoff time" could be set according to average et's in qualifying; and those that complete the course slower than that time would be disqualified. Those who beat that time would be awarded more points based on the margin by which they beat said time. The expected ET could progressively get shorter as the event goes on, similar to blinds in a poker game only inverse.

Right now it's basically a car show, with driving (skilled driving I might add) but I doubt that it will have a high visibility place in automotive culture for an extended period if there isn't anything concrete by which to quantify the driver's performance on track.



They did a "3d" event at Fontanna a few years ago which started out as a 1/8th mile drag, at the end of which was the initiation into the drift course, at the end of which was a set of timing lights that lead into an autocross. There was a points based on your performance for each catagory.


In current qualifying for FD and D1, they have radar guns to measure your speed, It's one of the main 3 judging criteria, if you are slow you won't qualify. D1 has individual apex judges at every main clipping point to quantify the distance from the apexes.

In the tandem rounds it eliminates any question of speed, if you can't keep up you lose, if you pull away you win.
