Season 18 Ford Escort 1600 - Sign Up Thread
« on: July 08, 2017, 07:41:56 PM »
Season 18 will be in the Ford Escort 1600.

Format
Two sprints per round: race 1 about 15 mins after qualifying, race 2 about 35 mins, with the starting order set by the order of race 1 fastest lap times. Race 2 is double points.

No tyre warmers. No compulsory pit stops.

Balancing the field
Each round from round 2, the top half of the field according to the championship points, will all get the same amount of restrictor, such as 20% decreasing restrictor will be applied from 100% down to 0 across the whole field (e.g. 100,95,90,85...0) according to the championship standings, to close up the field and give backrunners a better shot at being up the pointy end.

Schedule
R1: Jul 25, Brands Hatch Indy [OSRW EXTRA PITS MOD], 17 laps + 39 laps
R2: Aug 8, Riverside Spike [DOWNLOAD], 9 laps + 21 laps (32 spots)
R3: Aug 15, Tsukuba [DOWNLOAD], 14 laps + 32 laps (32 spots)
R4: Aug 22, Bridgehampton [DOWNLOAD 2.0], 8 laps + 19 laps (new track version, must delete old bridgehampton track folder first) (44 spots)

- 2 week break while I'm away on holidays -

R5: Sep 12, Vallelunga [OSRW EXTRA PITS MOD], 8 laps + 18 laps (32 spots)
R6: Sep 19, Nurburgring Sprint GT [OSRW EXTRA PITS MOD], 9 laps + 20 laps (36 spots)
R7: Sep 26, Barbagallo [DOWNLOAD], 13 laps + 31 laps (30 spots)

Points
30 down to 1.
1 point for pole position.
1 point for fastest lap in each race.

Race 2 is double points. Worst round is dropped.

Penalties
70 kg ballast is applied for the first race only of the next round for causing lap 1 grief (or 10 second post-race 1 penalty in the final round). 70 kg should equate roughly to a 5 to 10 second penalty over the whole of race 1.

I had further thoughts about the restrictor. Restricting the top half of the field the same amount is unfair on the middle pack runners, as they will be hit disproportionately hard by the restrictor and won't be able to escape the middle of the field. So I've changed it to be evenly decreasing restrictor, from 100% (which costs roughly 2 seconds per 1:40 lap) down to 0, across the whole field according to the standings.

This also keeps similarly paced drivers closer together, e.g. Phil might be on 90% and Joe might be on 85%, so they will still be close to each other performance wise. This helps boost backrunners forward in the field more evenly, and will make the season a test of race craft as well as outright speed.

We'll try this out in a practice race after the three car fun run.
