Fajita FWD Cup! Congrats to Hemiata!

Postby Azzkker » Fri Apr 05, 2013 10:47 am

We're going to switch things up a little here. We've seen some success with our mixer type series in the past. This time I want to mush some classic ideas together with some of the clever stuff sofa's seen in the past. So without further adieu, I announce to everyone the Fajita Front Wheel Drive Cup!

The “Fajita FWD Cup" is an ongoing series race composed of 10 events over 5 weeks. Each event will have two races driven in a single night. The series will begin on April 14th with races beginning at 9:30pm (Qualifying will be open by 9:00). So what's the catch? Drivers must enter two vehicles into the competition, and must drive both of them in a night. It is up to the drivers to choose which car they will use for which track, but both must be driven.

Locations:
week 1
madrid - 22 laps
autumn ring - 25 laps

week 2
daytona road corse - 13 laps
high speed ring - 18 laps

week 3
monaco - 22 laps
tsukuba - 35 laps

week 4
cape ring south - 22 laps
Grand Valley east Reverse - 24 laps

week 5
nurby gp/f - 14 laps
rome - 21 laps

Regulations:
Vehicle Regulations: Production Vehicles only, race modded vehicles are not allowed
Drivetrain: Front wheel drive only
Performance Points: 400
Horsepower: Unlimited (However engine limiting beyond 5% is prohibited).
Weight Limit: Unlimited
Tires: Comfort Soft

Driving aids: All driving aids will be disabled, ABS is allowed
Damage: Low
Penalties: Off

Scoring will be based on a standard logarithmic scale. Results will be tallied and recorded after each race, and posted at the top of this thread. The Point structure breakdown:
1st: 20pts
2nd: 17pts
3rd: 15pts
4th: 13pts
5th: 12pts
6th: 11pts
7th: 10pts
8th: 9pts
9th: 8pts
10th: 7pts

Is that during the month of Toyotathon?

And do we enter two cars for the entire series, or two cars each week?

D'oh! I blame it on Blorf. I asked him to proofread it!!
But, yeah... Just July.

As for cars, 2 for the entire series, NOT PER NIGHT.

And if some wants to step up and host it, cool, otherwise I'll be out of this series for two to three weeks based on stuff that's happening in my life. Didn't realize that until after I posted it. If someone wants to host something else (Karts, 2nr?) then feel free to drop a new series thread and I'll put this on the back burner for later.

The first race will be next sunday, so that will give enough people time to pick what they want to drive. At 400pp there is a large variety of choices out there. Please note, that your 2 models of car have to be a completely different model, just not a year difference.

This will be a very fun setup, and remember, you can only limit the engine power down to 95%. All cars that will be run in the series will be set to shared list after the first race for reg check.

Happy hunting!

Sounds interesting. I would like to do this. Might be a bit rough on an old man staying up that late and having to get up for work at 5am but I'm game :)

if need be we can move the start time up a little if that helps anyone out and nobody minds.

These FF are fun to drive, got to baby them to make the fronts last.

Fun stuff!

Unfortunately I won't be able to make quite a few of the race nights, so I'm out of this series.

I don't have any time to get cars together. Can I show up in whatever and not race for points?

I know what two (or at least one for sure) I'll be racing... so I plan to race when I can, and just enjoy the camaraderie of it.

Infact, here's what I'll be bringing to the track:
Lupo GTI '01
Celica SS-II (ZZT231) '99
Ford Focus Sedan SE '09
Troybilt Quantum XM '07

No need to dupe, I've got like 800–900 cars now, it's more a matter of not having any time to test and see what I like before the series start. I'll just be picking something more or less at random if I can make it!

I can't just bring a hacked X2010 and expect to race? What a load of crap.

I'm not sure if I'll be running this one ... but I think it would be nice if the PP were a little higher to allow more premium cars to run like the VW's and Mini's. ... I take that all back and actually read prior posts ... so now it's 400 PP, that's much better :roll:

are we allowed to make modifications to the cars, i.e, suspension, trans, engine as long as with in the 95%, and so forth. or do they have to be completely stock?
