Circuit Cup 2009 - How the voting unfolded for the track competition

Published by Ryan Gault

In the follow up to the first Character Cup, Christine revealed on Sidepodcast Diaries 19 that the next step was the Character Cup. The draw for the first round was made on the 22nd May 2009. The actual polls started on May 26th.


All the circuits are involved with the exception of Abu Dhabi. This is for two reasons. The first is that it would need sixteen circuits for it to work and secondly, there has been no race so impossible to judge the character of it.
