sponsor deals
3 sponsors per team
each sponsor wants different goals
(podium finish, most race leads, slow pits, 2 finishes, etc, etc)
play sponsors off against each other?
sponsor level gains and drops depending on performance/targets?
random goals?

Formula De is back baby! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

This year will be a set of races with simplified build rules over new tracks that have not been used in previous years
These are the candidates for the races:
  • Austin 
    Barcelona
    Chicago
    Grand Prix of Baltimore
    Hockenheim (2009) 
    Monaco (1991)
    Montreal 
    Nevada Ride
    Road Race
    Sepang 
    Valencia
    Zhuhai
As for the simplified build rules:
1) Each team will have a tracker with 4 statistics, Fans, Drivers, Sponsors, Team
2) Teams will allocate points on these tracks to allow for advantages
3) For each positive point, the team gains a negative point.
4) All points must be spent and positive and negative points cannot be spent on the same category.

Im going to try to get a race in March if people are available.
Any comments on tracks preferred or comments on the new rules, put a post below

Mike Hunt would like to register a formal protest against the lack of Interlagos!

:evil:
Into the mercy seat I climb
My head is shaved, my head is wired
And like a moth that tries
To enter the bright eye
So I go shuffling out of life
Just to hide in death awhile
And anyway I never lied.

For millions of years mankind lived just like the animals
Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination

Mike Hunt can like it or lump it!
We had Interlagos the last 3 years, time to try some of the tracks that have never seen the screech of tyres or the smashing of Dav's bumpers :lol:

Are we shaking up the teams and/or bringing in new drivers? I think Shaun and Leanne were interested?

The idea is that we can include more drivers and have less impact from pre-race decisions
Personally I dont mind about changing teams, drivers, etc and would be happy for more people to join in.
I'll be asking at the club this Thursday for other participants.
