Naming convention for race tracks/events

Post by PTRACER » 5 years ago

I think we should go as simple as possible for the names, but also add the country on the end:

Eg. Brands Hatch, England
Elgin, USA

We should also keep the event names as 'English' as possible. For example: Hungarian Grand Prix, not Magyar Nagydij

If it's the French Grand Prix, for example, we should call it simply 'French Grand Prix', not XXVII French Grand Prix. The idea is to make the photos as simple to find as possible. Results pages on the web should help us name everything :thumbsup:
