Actually it's an interesting question. Will RCS run both protocols (not at the same time)? In which case as long as the track is identical I would have thought the protocol on each track could be a local choice if the data streams can be integrated on the website.
For the largest possible participation, I would suggest SSD, if only because oXigen would require an investment of no small amount by groups that aren't already prepared for it. As for running SSD and oXigen in the same "race" I would say that it's not unimaginable that some would feel that the *other* system is either a distinct advantage, or disadvantage, and not want to share the field with it for that reason alone. A lot of things can be equalized between the systems, but the way the simulations work, as well as the degree of control provided by O2, may be enough of a difference, all other things being made to be equal, to disqualify it.
Worth some discussion, though. If my group participates, it would probably be SSD, though we could go hybrid O2.
If we go for the route of having SSD and O2 in the same race then we could have a different class: SSD-GT-AM and O2-GT-Pro...however this means that there should be enough O2 entrants.
If not, we will be happy to race SSD.
However, in terms of cars how about stepping this up a notch? For instance, instead of going for scalex GT cars, we could go for the DiSCA Euro series regulations with scaleauto motor and sponge tyres. This means that over the 3 hours we might need to change tyres for real....
Take it easy guys! For sure the RCS team wants to pick this up again, but our first focus is the release of RCS O2. Than we collaberated with kiwi for his website, not sure what the status is at the moment. And Martin has ideas to do it another way with regards to the host. Definetely on our agenda but a bit too early.
