Well, I dunno, I think there may be a place for a series that requires one
to qualify first. As the sport gets more and more popular, you're going to
need to stratify somehow in order to meet demand, and a series that caters
to the better drivers (and requires qualification to get in) is not a bad
IF it is done _in addition_ to the existing series. I can't see making the
current National Tours into this, but there's no reason why there couldn't
be a "Super Tour" series - perhaps requiring a trophy finish at a National
Tour to qualify, or something.
