Will the race to the lanes be with a handicapped start? :-)

The guys who lay back, just want to say they were in the race longer than the other first round non-winnwer.

Default Re: Lane Choice

 Lane loading during qualifying –assign odd numbered lanes for LL and even for RL – let the competitors get the lane they want if possible – If the end of the session results in a single lane of competitors, the first competitor in the front of the line will receive the desired lane, the competitor immediately following will be put in the opposite lane. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHOULD SINGLES BE RAN UNLESS THERE IS ONLY ONE LEFT.

One suggestion to this rule: The person who arrives last should have the least opportunity to choose a lane. The last car in line should have to take the first un-wanted lane choice. Then, the next last car should fill the next unwanted lane choice, etc., etc. The only argument that I can see against this would be it would require an official to police. However, there is generally someone running the staging lanes. We all know the procedure. That official could go to the back of the lanes and handle the pairings.

Seems random pairings works on the fly on lane assignment. I'm not saying I want all random pairing either.

If it remains coin flip in sportsman so be it, I will say, I am not a fan of the games associated with this method.
