A lot of things happening, overtakes all over the place. So much happened that I expect that race is soon over. I look at lap counter...it is 15th lap only. :roflmao:
Survived Clark's assassination attempt. Then we sent someone to change Hoy's tyres for bad set.
Last laps :confused:
Best comment: "Button will take 2nd. Oh no, but he doesn't have front wing (without pause) because he had to lap Schumacher". :roflmao:
Very happy to not be on receiving end of bad luck in the end. :cool:

Global Formula Automobilista season 3 announcement
The change from Season 2 to Season 3 will be pretty much the exact same as last time.

Firstly, the cars are going to update themselves by another few years as we will drive the early-2000s Formula V10 cars.

Most of the rules will stay the same, here's the carryover rules for clarity.

Season carryover
No team will carry any money over between seasons. You must spend all your money before the last race if you don't want it to go to waste. Any money earned in the final race of the season will be converted into an automatic reliability buy for next season. That is, every 100cr you get from the Automobilista Grand Prix will equate to an extra 5 seconds of reliability before any buys.

All teams will once again start the season with 4000cr to spend on your drivers and car for the same range randomisation process as we had this season. There is a small amount of Prize Money for constructors championship standings.

  • 1st: 250cr
  • 2nd, 3rd: 200 cr
  • 4th-8th: 150cr
  • 9th, 10th: 100cr
  • 11th+: 50cr
  • New team: 0cr
All driver stats will be reset. Teams can nominate up to one driver in their current driver pairing to stay in the team, everyone else will be "out of contract". Then I will allow managers in constructors championship order to choose their second driver (or first if they didn't keep) in order. You can choose a driver you previously used if they're available. Otherwise, you can completely replace your lineup with new drivers for the series, or steal someone from another team if they didn't "lose" their contract. This is just a way to shake up the grid.


Teams can opt to change their main livery colour, however you must still adhere to the one colour per team rule. If you wish to change to another colour that is in use, please talk to that user beforehand and negotiate a compromise. Otherwise, any livery is fine.

Downforce will just be Low or High, with the upgrade price higher. There will also be a Gearbox upgrade to get longer gears, like was applied for Adelaide. This price upgrade will be similar to the Downforce.


The initial plan was to change this into a driver's series rather than managers, but we don't have enough managers and players to make this switch, so it will stay as a managers series. To combat this, I'll try to make the race video Thumbnails and titles slightly more clickbaity to generate some extra clicks.

MOSS TAKES MAIDEN WIN AS KAS DOUBLE DNF
1599644763049.png

Stirling Moss scored Red Night's first ever GFA victory after coming out on top in a race long battle with Chris Hoy and Stefan Bellof, both of whom lost time with crashes. Gilles Villeneuve and Chris Hoy were ready to inherit podiums, but both retired on the last lap with suspension issues, leaving a Front Wing-less Jenson Button to take second place ahead of Antonio Felix da Costa taking his first podium. John Watson scored a sensational 4th place for 2KF1 Racing at the team's home race to cap off their recent upturn in form in the most spectacular way possible.
The driver's title was up for grabs here for Lewis Hamilton, but both Kas Racing drivers retired in crashes at the hairpin, with Inoue being wiped out by Jim Clark, leaving the title still open for the last race.

MARKET IS OPEN

Interviews
@Sasha Jednak, it's taken a long time, but the team has finally delivered on its promise. How are you and the boys celebrating?
@Aidan Keranen John scored you an absolute bucketload of points there in 4th, are you expecting this kind of pace to carry on to next season?
@oorjit07, you've dropped into last place in the Constructors Championship despite scoring points again, will next season be the time to get bangalore up the grid?

How?! Let's say don't expect good result from us next week... Team is super happy, celebrations started immediately after the race and they are still ongoing. So much that we are missing 10 mechanics that are nowhere to be found still. And not to mention that our drivers are doing 1:1 races with points for one who has more alcohol inside himself. Currently Fangio is leading 4-3 in wins and next one is with each having 2 bottles "consumed". But they are so wasted that they didn't notice we have been putting water in bottles for last 2 races.

GLOBAL FORMULA AUTOMOBILISTA SEASON 2 AWARDS
Like last season, the Automobilista Grand Prix will be filled with a load of awards to be handed out for the season. Please fill in this form below to vote in it.

Please try to be realistic in your vote, don't just vote for stuff that you could win (I can work out if you're just voting for your own responses *ahem* @Millsy24 *ahem*). The more votes the better.
@Aidan Keranen @kevintaddo10 @oorjit07 @Meff28s @rubaru @Márk Lintner @Omer Said @Tim.E @Kas. @Lesley Buurlage @ME9Swe @Sasha Jednak @the_sigman

It is also worth me mentioning the carry over rules for money next season.
There is no carry over. Any money not spent for the Automobilista Grand Prix (next race) will be removed from your accounts. Any money won at the Automobilista Grand Prix will be converted into an automatic reliability purchase for the beginning of next season. Constructors Championship position will grant a small bonus to your 4000cr budget at the start of next season.
