    Welcome to the inaugural Formula Ford Championship! In this championship, there will be 7 rounds where racers compete to earn championship points to become the inaugural International Formula Ford Champion! Now, onto the specifics!

    [​IMG]
    Light Car Company Rocket '07

    500PP

    Tyres- Racing Hard (They do have quite a bit of grip on the Rockets, Softs are too grippy.)​


    Driving Aids
    Traction Control (TCS)-
    OFF
    ABS- OFF
    Skid Recovery Force (SRF)- OFF
    Active Stability Management (ASM)- OFF
    Driving Line- Optional

    TCS and ABS are not available on an actual Formula Ford, so they will not be allowed here.

    Rules

    Just with any series, there are rules enforced. In this series, we will follow a slightly modified and relaxed, OLR, if you haven't already, check it out. If any rules need to be modified, this post will outline all changes made.

    Teams

    Teams will be allowed in this series as there is a planned Team Championship. Teams of up to 3 are able to be created but the third driver will be unable to score points in order to keep things tight.

    Wildcard Entries
    Wildcard entries are available to anyone who is unable to fully commit to the series but still can race part-time through out the series whilst earning championship points without full commitment. A limited amount of wildcard entries will be a available to avoid an influx of part-time drivers. Wildcard drivers can dictate when they want to race.

    Numbers
    Numbers will be in use in this series. Any number between 2-99 are able to be used as #1 is reserved for the series/season champion. The shape must be the Circle with a black outline. In regards of teams, you do not need numbers that are one after another.

    Drivers
    In order to sign up for this series, you will need to leave your car number, GTP ID, PSN ID and car colour in this format;
    PSN ID // GTP ID // # // Colour
    I will also need a friend request from everyone as the room is hosted under 'Friends Only'

    Keep an eye on this post for more updates as they become available!

    I hope you are able to join this fantastic, friendly and fun series and contribute to the benefit of others as we are all here to have an enjoyable experience whilst meeting new people. For more info, start up a convo with me, NW48, and ask away and I'll happily answer all questions!!

    Season 1 Developments
    Race Start: The race start will be a standing start with false start check, this is the best way to do it and also the most realistic.

    Drivers: If a driver has deemed that they cannot go on, they should communicate this by typing "Retiring" into text chat. This may be the only time text chat is permitted in the race.

    Rain-Drenched Conditions: In the rare instance that the track becomes "too wet", the Head of Race Control can suspend the race for a period of time for a restart. The Head of Race Control will simply type in "Race Suspended" in the text chat. In the case of a red flag (race suspension), all cars must return to pitlane and we will go from there. The most likely circumstance will be a restart with an adjusted weather and slight time adjustment. The laps to go will be the amount of laps left to go in the restarted race, as per usual.

    Time Certainty: All rounds will be run with time certainty. All races must be done within the two hours that the room is up for. Failure for that to happen, the race that we are on when we hit 12:00pm AEST will be concluded immediately with positions taken from 1 lap back from when the race was called.

    Generic Race Schedule:
    9:50am AEST- Room Opens
    10:15am AEST- Race 1 Begins
    10:27am AEST- Race 1 ends, 5 minute break
    10:32am AEST- Race 2 Begins
    10:45 AEST- Race 2 ends, 10 minute break
    10:55am AEST- Race 3 Begins
    12:00pm AEST- Race Meet Must End (Time Certainty)

    Rules Extension: Kerbs/Ripplestrips ARE part of the track. Until you put 3 or more wheels off the track, it is not leaving track limits.​

    Season 2 Developments
    For Season 2, I am considering implementing a Conference System. 2 Conferences, Euro-American (Europe, Africa, America) and Asia-Pacific (Asia and Pacific Countries like Australia). These two conferences will run two different championships with the Top 5 from each conference going into a one-race final to decide the final positions overall (including both conferences).

    Couple of questions, what number types and fonts are we using?

    And what tyres are we racing with? sports, racing, or comfort?

    Also I do suggest that you put some kind of firm dates down for each round. You could just put down the Friday - Sunday dates (eg. 26-28 December) for now and then put the confirmed dates in at a later time, but that way people will be more likely to commit if they know for sure they will be around on those weekends. :)

    In regards to dates, I plan on having this start somewhere between 11th-15th of December so we can get all the rounds done just after January ends.

    Hi NW48 - good luck with the series - great choice of car!

    I'm using this car next year in a 1960 Formula 2 Championship (it looks incredibly like the Porsche 718 F2 car) - I tested it at 170bhp with all the tyres and found it had so much grip that I've opted for Comfort Hards - you might find that Race Hards are a bit much for the car at 115bhp.

    Yep, I'll put you down when I can!

    Firstly, thank you for the support! And that Porsche looks like a split image of the Rocket! The only difference would be the nose and the side vents. Anyway, I'll have to try putting it at a lower grip tyre as I hadn't really tried it any lower than Racing tres. Thanks for the input and the tip!
