  1. RDFR S16 picture goes here but i do not have skills do edit. so i hope some kind soul can help me out. THANKS!

    The 16th running of the RaceDepartment Forum Racing Championship is here (RDFR S16). Can James Chant defend his championship, and can Red Bull Racing dominate again to win another title? Or will there be a completely new face to the top of the standings? Let's find out!

    Joining
    To join, just pick an empty slot from the list below. There are all teams from the 2012 F1 season.

    The Races
    The Sprint Race - At random times, i start races (GO GO GO), and when a race starts you will try to reply 'finish' here in the thread as fast as you can.

    The Feature Race - This race is a little longer, but not so hard. After the start is announced, players must post ‘Start’ as quickly as possible
    Then they must wait for one (1) hour, then post ‘pit’
    Then they must wait for another hour before posting ‘finish’ to end the race.
    The first person to post ‘start’ will receive 3 points as a “pole bonus”. Those pitting/finishing too early (before the hour have passed) will be handed a penalty of 1 hour added to their finishing time per each minute early they post, unless you post againg after the hour has passed. If your finishing time exseeds the time of the finish of the race, in which case you will be DQ’ed.

    Times will be counted in minutes via the 'Forum Clock' displayed at the bottom of each post.

    That's some bull! How'd I lose my seat at Ferrari? I was #1 driver last year with 2 race wins and finished 6th in the standings. How could the Scuderia do this to me? :cry::cry:

    I'll have to accept a contract for Mercedes if I can't get my seat back!

    Nah, after an exstensive talk with Ross Brawn, he's convinced me to come over to Mercedes. I helped rebuild Ferrari last year like Schumacher did, and now Brawn really wants to build the season 16 Mercedes team into a champion outfit after finishing 11th last season. He did say he'd like Carter to join me over there, though. He thinks we can win a championship together.:D

  17. Sorry to mess you about Linus but German presicion and a great DRS system is far more appealing than putting up with Rob Smedley telling me how to drive "badly". :p

    It's also because Danny is very persuasive so Im off to Mercedes ;)

    I won't be popular for doing this I feel :redface:

  18. Since nobody else is likely to join Williams I think I'd like to change teams and take the spot that's opened up at HRT
     
  19. @Alexander Macdonald HRT is also empty, but there will be more sign ups. the thread have only been up for one day :p
     
  20. yeah but HRT always seems to be more popular
