    [FONT=&quot]How To Play ? [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    At random times, I start races.

    When I start a sprint race, you will come and post " finish " . It’s as simple as that!

    If I start a Feature Race you will come and post " start " then wait for one hour, then say " pit ". Then one more hour, then " finish ". [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]If I start an Endurence Race you come and post “start” then wait for one hour, then say “pit 1” wait one hour “pit2” wait one more hour “pit3” and one final hour “finish”[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]All you need to sign up is to choose an unpicked driver seat from the teams list bottom of the post.

    IMPORTANT! : If you double post at a sprint race, or don't wait for one hour in feature race your engine will blow up. And you can't finish the race.

    Séb and me for the green car, pls. :D
     
  3. Are you sure you want to keep the bonus : [FONT=&quot]Scoring Points at All of the Races : [/FONT][FONT=&quot]+5 points

    [/FONT]
    Because with the new scoring point system, lot of drivers will have this bonus.
     
  4. Due to the controversy of the polls, I will quit this season. :(

    Till then I will emphasize my 2 race per GP rule, until I'll be back on Season 10 to start races (if stupid Matt doesn't change the rules again :p)

    NOTE: I'll emphasize it again. BOTH races (Sprint and Feature) WILL award points
     
  5. I'll take the number 11 Williams please. :D Maybe Ben will join me again...
     
  6. I do formally apologise to Resi for my mistake, I put in my system and missed out Resi's. I am truly sorry mate, please accept my most humble apologies :(
     
  7. ...
     
  8. Thanked = partly forgiven. :)

    If next season will be a Sprint + Feature, you will be fully forgiven!
     
  9. Calender up and running :)
     
  10. EDIT: post no longer needed
     
  11. Jordan offered new contract for one year and I will take seat in there.
     
  12. Season Preview, 7 November 2009
    (Note: I will still do write-ups and reviews, my official protest only stated that I won't race this season)

    [​IMG]Jaguar
    01. Sebastien Levret
    02. Honk

    And we have our first entrant of the season. The infamous green outfit of Jaguar (who almost ran over a joker :D)

    Honk was once a long-forgotten driver of the Forum Racing (this will tell atleast), always running in the back of the grid, then he disappeared out of sight (IF the Awards were already out that time, he would win the Tom Jones award). He, finally, came back on season 8 thanks to this team, with a shocking instant good results, and was one of the championship contenders of the season.

    Levret, in other hand, came in as a fresh rookie last season. His speed is amazing compared to "The Legends of RDFRC" gang, and, much predictably, clinches the title at his first outing, making him the only rookie to win a RD Forum Racing World Driver's (AND Golf Trophies) Championship title, also knocked away the Legends.

    This perfect combination is definitely the one to watch for.

    Prediction: 1st place

    [​IMG]Sauber

    04.

    Sauber, being left by Levret who moved to Jaguar, is in the verge of collapse after last season's successions, and tried to overcome the situation by recruiting (H)Omer Said.

    Omer Said, is a true racecar driver. I still remember the moment when he was forced to resign several season seasons ago due to medical issues. He gradually recovers and made his comeback in Season 7 with a SHOCKING victory in his first ever race in months!

    Racing, indeed, is in Omer's blood. I believe, he will keep Sauber's morale.

    Prediction: 3rd place

    [​IMG]Jordan
    07[FONT=&quot].[/FONT] Viljar Parts
    08[FONT=&quot].[/FONT] Peter Duivelaar

    Jordan IS still alive. Eddie Jordan extended another consistent rookie Viljar Parts' contract for another go at Jordan. Viljar, being an awesome rookie last season, posted consistent results throughout the season and finished 3rd on the Championship.

    Another one is Peter "Patrick" Duivelaar, another veteran of the Championship so far, finishing a respectable 5th place on the Championship last year. He left Renault and made Jordan his other home.

    Eddie Jordan once again proves that he's not only good at picking babes, he's also good driver handpicker.

    Prediction: 3rd place


    [​IMG]Williams
    11. Rhys Gardiner
    12.

    Well, what do we have here, another competitive blue creation by Frank Williams? Apparently not. Last season rookie Rhys "Hermann Tilke" Gardiner has nothing but being rear-ended numerous times and just got lucky when he finished in the top 3.

    As for the second spot, still no statements released whether they're going to re-recruit Tusting or not.

    Prediction: 5th place

    Look left. Look right. Don't walk. See that shiny white outfit (with a glowing red "button" on the sides).

    Yep, you guessed it. Lucky BAR is back, after the misery of last season of not being able to enter one single race. With new CEO David Richards, with his amazing theory of "F1 = golfing" that combines both of the sports' precision into the driver's minds.

    Let's see if this theory comes to work.

    Prediction: 6th place


    Test Day
    Jerez, Spain


    [​IMG]

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aEZQmIpfjQ[/ame]

    The winter testing season returns to the home of its own, the famous Jerez de la Frontera circuit, former host of the European Grand Prix.

    Jerez offers amateur drivers an F1 experience without the cost or risk involved in racing. It was designed as an F1 track and is popular with drivers, however its location meant it couldn’t draw the crowds that the F1 needed, so the race moved to Barcelona. F1’s loss is our gain as this beautiful, state of the art track is just 240km from Malaga and can be hired for trackdays.

    The Jerez race course first opened in 1985 and boasts many state of the art facilities, including excellent safety systems, large spectator areas and bars and cafes. It held several Formula 1 races and is a popular place for car and bike testing with the majority of F1 Teams using the circuit for Winter testing

    Overview



    • 4,428 meters long
    • 11m wide
    • 600m straight
    • 15 corners (9 right / 6 left)
    • 1 chicane
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It is 4,423 metres long and has 15 bends and a chicane which was added in the 1990s as part of safety improvement works. They pride themselves on their safety measures, so it’s a great place to enjoy a trackday. There are wide run off areas of deep gravel and a revolutionary air-fence to protect any vehicles making contact with the side. The current lap record is 1:15.650 and was set by the great Michael Schumacher in a Ferrari in 2004.
    The long straight sections make this a very fast circuit with just enough challenging twists and turns to put your driving abilities to the test and make you feel like a real racing driver.
