    Welcome everyone to the fifth season of our well beloved, tailored to RD, Formula FG Championship.

    If you've been tagged in the first post as a manager, I need confirmation that you are indeed taking part this season. If you are not, please let me know as soon as possible, it's important that we make sure we have a filled grid as soon as possible.

    Otherwise we have an open slot for a team manager at the moment (and possibly a few more). Keep in mind that if you want a manager slot right now, you will have to give up your driving seat. If we need to in the future we can discuss ways around this.

    Also, for anyone new (or just can't remember them), the regulations currently are in need of a major facelift, so while I do encourage you to have a read and refresher, keep in mind that certain sections (ie T1 engines, driver contracts, test drivers especially) are most likely going to be changed ahead of the season. Naturally, there will be messages sent out about this.

    Don't forget that we are moving to a 2 race per week schedule, I fancy that the season will start around September, however there will be a few delays through until October before we should have plain sailing to season end.

    I'm also going to chuck out a tag to @Joel, our defending series champion. Haven't seen him around in a bit, obviously as Apex have also left, the #1 will follow him around, if he's left, then we are going to be using 0 and 2.

    Assumed that much, not sure if Andy and Driftslide/Black Box will return either. Will see if Donald will return with DCT.
    Maybe 4 team slots going, could be a massive change in regulations :D

    The car is the 2010 Sauber. Engine is Renault and tyres are Bridgestone.

    Just to remind everyone how awesome our car looks. That being said though, it changed a bit since that pic was taken.
