    New thread started, don't take some of the opening post things too seriously as the regs are still WIP a little bit.
    We're aiming for a 23rd May start, get your info together for me and we'll get this thing underway again!

    As per usual (managers),
    Constructor Name
    Commercial Name
    Car Chassis Name
    Car Chassis (historical)
    Drivers

    that's a good way to start it all :thumbsup:

    Drivers come along and say hi, if you're not pre-contracted this season then tell me, and your name will be added to the list for all to see.

    I remember you guys talking about changing names, so I need to find out to what extent that is or isn't happening.

    @Aidan Keranen Why on earth has the T3 engine moved down to 790. I mean there is a bigger risk now of getting a possible shait engine but there isn't any risk gain if you compare with the T2 engine. I mean prices are a difference, but I'd still like to know why it was lowered?

    Had things gone my way, who knows.. Premium Member

    T3 engines are cheaper to upgrade. So if both T2 and T3 get 790, over time the T3 will have a massive edge due to BHP cost.
    (on this, I will say that I think you nerfed them a bit too much, looking at the CoF)

    Constructor Name: ART
    Commercial Name Apex Racing Team (we are still discussing sponsors, something might appear here)
    Car Chassis Name ARCE (Apex Racing Championship Edition :D)

    Time will tell, I'm happy to have T3 CoF reduced.

    Also I am aware Nathan is racing, you have numbers 3 & 4 in that case

    Brawn won the CC in 2009, but Button went to McLaren, so they had 1 & 2, while Merc were 3 and 4.

    Regs also say that #1 is champion and #2 is his teammate, always pays to read those
