Due to a lack of time until the first race we can't spend time debating this, people (or me) need to test :p
We'll use Prz's order, i'll create a proper calendar later in the next 3 hours or so
Wait, if Suzuka and Japan both got five votes then both should be included although one under the pacific GP title. We need to drop one from:

Either way we need a final calendar by the end of today, even if we have 21 circuits.
Out of those i'd be happy to see Korea go, everyone else post your thoughts
My vote is to say (Nananaheyhey) goodbye to Singapore (High priority) or India (second)
Right so one vote for: China, Korea and Singapore
Malaysia, India, Italy, Europe (Paul Ricard) are the other tracks you can vote on, remember we're looking to drop one here!
We MUST have a calendar by midnight!
When I announced the track voting, I mentioned that there may only be 1 GP per country, with the exception of GP of Europe. So I think all voters were aware, that in a situation like this, some unlucky track may drop out.
Frankly I wasn't aware of the pacific GP (in fact in modern times it only took place twice, in 1994 and 1995) and I did not put it as one of the options. That's why I left it for the new president to decide which track to kick.
Along the 4-voters I'd gladly get rid of Korea or Singapore, not too fond of China either. I think the new president should have a final say about this. Either one of the japanese tracks or one 4-voter has to go.
Even though im in a good position to win elections, i will not say anything about this topic now cause everything can change, so it wouldnt be proper to do it. If votings stays like this i will ASAP post a decision on the matter. But if you want my honest opinion as candidate only, i think instead of having 1 country with 2 GP´s, its better to have 2 countrys represented with one GP each. Its more fair i think.
Hiatus mode activated!!!
I think the Pacific GP was kind of "forced". GP of Europe is too, but not as clearly. I think since I only mentioned GP of Europe in my track vote, it would be fair to choose 1 japanese track from the two.
Also, I thought the presidential vote has ended last night, but now I see it's gonna last until the 9th - oops my bad.
In that case, formally the president is still Pete, so he can make a decision on it and if the future president disagrees, we may change the calendar. But honestly I don't think anyone would do that, not too "professional" .
My vote would be to drop China or India.
OK I have set online laptimes in Australia and Brazil. The lapcounts are as follows:
AUS: 14 min / 31.100 sec = 27 laps
BRA: 14 min / 44.200 sec = 19 laps
I also found a relation between my best online and offline laptimes: ONLINE = OFFLINE * 1.165
EDIT: OK, I have based my calculation on Afonso's offline laptimes, multiplied by 117% to get online laptimes. Now, Afonso, we need you to set some laptimes on new tracks
Will complete the calendar by tomorrow afternoon
Out of the old tracks I'd drop India and out of the Japanese ones Suzuka, 'cause we ain't never had Fuji like this before
I'd like to confirm my seat for next season, I will be driving for......Lotus.
