CANZ Series Template
Hey all,

Below you'll find the template that should be used to give drivers all the details of the series you are planning so they can make informed decisions about whether it is a series they are interested in or not. While we offer the opportunity for everyone to open a series idea, we must stress that not all series can be run all at once, so some organisers may unfortunately miss out. To gauge interest in your idea, we recommend starting an Expression of Interest (EOI) thread prior to spending too much time putting together all the details found in the template below.

EOI's are to be used to scope interest in an idea, so you don't need the full gamut of information, but you should have a rock solid idea behind you so the community know what to expect (if it is too vague and results in confusion or excessive questions, go back and do some more work on it and start again - hopefully taking on board the questions and suggestions given by the community)

Official proposals are used to begin locking in registrations and as mentioned, if the series is popular enough (more than 8 drivers) then it will receive CANZ support via web pages etc. These threads must provide full information. You can still make some minor adjustments such as changing a track due to majority of community members requesting it, or dropping a round to shorten the season etc. But by and large, rules should be sorted, cars locked in etc.

Any questions on this post below, but for now here is the Official Series Template - just copy and paste into a new thread in the appropriate section and fill out the areas currently in light grey. The title of your thread should be: CANZ "your series name" [Official thread].

Please note: You must private message your Series thread through to the CANZ directors before posting your series to ensure all bases are covered. You do not need to PM expression of interest threads.
