Why is BARC cutting the sprints races short?

All races were regular times lengths.

Yes Doug, the races were the appropriate length, but Warm Up was only 5 minutes and Qualifying only 10 minutes. So I would say we lost track time yet again.
With a split qualifying group, could we not have at least 15 minutes? In the big scheme of things what difference would it make? Everyone else gets at least 20 minutes and some even 22 min's.

In retrospect, we probably got that wrong. The GT Sprints group had the same time as the other groups, but each competitor had only 90 minutes.

Considering the number of competitors in GT Sprints, it might be fairer to give the group more time to give the competitor five minutes more of qualifying.

It's difficult to set schedules when you don't know what the number of entries is going to be, but point taken. We'll remember it for next year.

Thank you BARC (whoever you are?) for the positive response.
