    As promised, 5th August!
    <a cheeky picture goes here>

    Welcome ladies and gentlemen boys and girls children of all ages, to the first season of my custom-built Racing Manager game, as a forum game. Racing Manager is a slightly complex F1 team manager game.

    Regulations
    I have compiled some regulations, which you can read here (they are reasonably long)
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/15yR0fbMHmvBioc3RfSlNyJydFyQVbD0ppjjcJ76MbVQ/edit?usp=sharing
    If you already read my regulations in the HoF & Discussion thread, the changes so far are in red. If you've already read those, the new updates are marked in blue.

    Don't want to read such long regulations? Try the shortened version, it'll get you into the groove of things.
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DW9hzIP3YkeBvCHrllG2dNL9Wlwsj-sUtOSrHjCh5_Y/edit?usp=sharing
    Knowing either regulations is a MUST before attempting to appeal any decisions made by the moderator. I will guide you to the correct section if you want, but I will not accept it if you completely ignore them.

    Calendar:
    The season 1 calendar is chosen completely by the moderator, and is final. Complain as you wish, for next season I may allow managers to choose a certain number of tracks.
    1-Australian Grand Prix (Melbourne) - 8th March
    2-Brazillian Grand Prix (Interlagos) - 29th March
    3-San Marino Grand Prix (Pre-2006 Imola) - 12th April
    4-Serbian Grand Prix (Mišeluk) - 26th April
    5-Spanish Grand Prix (Catalunya) - 10th May
    6-Monacan Grand Prix (Monte Carlo) - 24th May
    7-Canadian Grand Prix (Montreal) - 7th June
    8-British Grand Prix (Pre-2010 Silverstone) - 28th June
    9-French Grand Prix (Pre-2002 Magny-Cours) - 12th July
    10-Austrian Grand Prix (A1-Ring) - 26th July
    11-Dutch Grand Prix (Assen, modern version) - 2nd August
    12-German Grand Prix (Pre-2002 Hockenheim) - 16th August
    13-Hungarian Grand Prix (Pre-2003 Hungaroring) - 23rd August
    14-Belgian Grand Prix (Pre-2007 Spa-Francorchamps) - 30th August
    15-Italian Grand Prix (pre-2000 Monza) - 13th September
    16-European Grand Prix (pre-2002 Nurburgring) - 27th September
    17-Japanese Grand Prix (pre-2002 Suzuka) - 10th October

    Standings:
    Nothing here so far

    Game Beta
    After the second race, I will hand out a copy of the game to everyone who asks me in the team conversation (more on this later). At that point you have signed up for the beta and will recieve updates after every race here, unless you say otherwise. Optionally, you may report any issues back to me for a further test.
    The only requirement for the beta is that you have a Windows PC/laptop and are a manager in the forum game, or give me a good enough reason that forces you out of the game. Once you sign out of the game, you will stop recieving updates for the beta.

    FAQ
    If you ever wish to ask me something, search here first, it might have already been asked. (use Ctrl+F on your browser)

    Now i know the calendar looks like a copy of 1998 and pretty much everything looks like a copy of F1 1998 but I thought I'd base it around that year for a start, I feel like it'll be the best fit for the game.

    Oh and if you're wondering why I need team colours so detailed, here's a crop from the preview pic I posted in the discussion thread:
    nTF9iyF.png
    Basically, the game reads RGB values, so I need RGB values. Can still look them up myself but the result may not be what you are hoping for, so I'd recommend do it yourself to avoid problems.

    Yep, our car will be sponsored by Bounty for the upcoming season! (Sponsorship will probably change every season!)

    I will sort out RGB values later

    actually, why did I add a commercial name if I was going to send out actual sponsor offers to reams? :laugh:

    Correct
    A side note, I'll allow this as long as the numbers are not yet taken, or you come to a swap agreement with the other manager. In your case, they were not taken so it is fine.

    I've been asked to reserve numbers 20 and 21, if the person joins he will get those, otherwise, all teams beyond that will move up one.

    Also I've been asked by @Andy 'Mars Bar' Graham to keep bounty in the commercial name, so I have come up with the idea to have sponsors named as "Sponsor 1", "sponsor 2" etc, with the ability to rename.
    So I've put back the commercial name into the signup, go fill it up if you haven't :thumbsup:

    also, TAG ATTACK time
    @kedy89 @Decenten @Sasha Jednak @Matteo Heymans @TTupsi @Azabadaza @Jack Hunsley @Smartbean @Márk Lintner @Benutzername @oorjit07 @Joel @Diehl @Matt @Davin.Rizuki (who knows!)
     
  19. looks fun, but in the end i'm not going to join, looks way to complicated for me to handle
