    If you want #5 i'll put you as team 2, as they will be partnering each other.

    I think we'll bring GTORacing into this as team 1

    Yeah, since I can't have #76, I'll have 5 after Nigel Mansell... :D

    Also, are you not following ancient F1 traditions of skipping #13?

    You know what I think you could do @DirtyNurbKing58?

    Depending on if this may work.

    Implement money/credit into the series, like F1.

    Every team starts with $1,000,000.
    The car costs $100,000.
    Tyres cost $1,000 per set used.
    Race entries cost $2,500 per driver.

    Driver costs $100,000 for season 1. Prices of drivers for season 2 will depend on where they place in the championship.

    Credit will be earned by championship position, as such:

    1st place - $2,500,000
    2nd place - $2,000,000
    3rd place - $1,700,000
    4th place - $1,500,000
    5th place - $1,300,000
    6th place - $1,200,000
    7th place - $1,100,000
    8th place - $1,000,000

    Opinions?

    I thought something like that but the thing is you can't limit tyres/testing etc, best just to keep it this way

    by the way, what's the nationality of your team?

    Well if we don't charge tyres but everything else, do you think it could work?

    I believe it would be Anglo-South African. :)

    bit pointless, if we can have a bigger grid why stop that with money things?

    One or the other sorry :lol:

    I think we may start the race an hour earlier

    I did think that, but the thing is it's difficult if there is a small number of drivers as it is

    I haven't updated the OP, but we've cut races to one hour with a 20 minute Q session. Races will start at 19:00 GMT

    Is this still Ok?
