2012 Season- Alfa 147 GT-R Trophy

 

HAVE YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES?

JOIN US TUESDAYS & SUNDAYS

www.Italianracer.co.uk

How we go racing:-

We race using the Alfa 147 GT-R Trophy Mod. Tracks are mainly British circuits apart from Andersthrop South. Normally 16 lap races.

Changeable weather, Damage is set to 40% to allow damge to occur but not put you out the race to prevent only a few cars finishing. 

The only driver aid we have on is Auto Clutch. 

Any driver view allowed. Any set up allowed. Qualifying is one out lap and one timed lap, once youve left the pits thats it. Once the race starts there is no restarting. We use a weight system to make the championship closer. The top 5 drivers in the championship have weights as follows 1st=100kg, 2nd=85kg, 3rd=70kg, 4th=55kg, 5th=40kg.  Two drivers on the same points will have equal weight, making a sixth driver have weight. No weight will be used for the first race of the season. No Fees or sign up to join us, just want clean racers. Any questions Email the 2 links on the right of this page.

Points System:- 1st=10

                       2nd=8

                       3rd=6

                       4th=5

                       5th=4

                       6th=3                      

                       7th=2

                       8th=1

          Pole Position=1

 

        THE JOKER CARD

This gives you Double points for one race only, but can only be used if you are 23 or more points behind the championship leader. Every driver can use it if they are more than 23 points behind. You MUST declare your going to use it BEFORE qualifying. All your points for that round will be doubled, making a total of 22 points available. This is to give drivers a chance to get back in the championship if they have missed races for what ever reason, but will not allow a driver to leap frog the championship leader. When a driver uses it, they will have a red block in the points table like the yellow pole position block. So we can keep track of who has used it.

HERO TO ZERO  (LITRES)

After a flawless race at Cadwell for DIEnamic, going from Flag to Flag..  He went from being HERO TO ZERO FUEL....at Croft.  (dont laugh lads).  But it was Bonner who did the Flag to Flag this time round. The last 3 races have been won from the pole man. Not pole as in Poland. The man on the front row, oh you know what i mean..... Pogo spat his dummy out after selecting Intermediate tyres for a dry race, but rain was forecast, so again...(dont laugh lads). Ezz is heading into Joker card territory, with being 19 points behind championship leader Martin.

DIE...  I did see someone running away from your pits laughing with a drill piece in their hand. Not gonna tell you who it was though cuz i like MR B.

Right.....  INDIANAPOLIS 50 Next  for a bit of  speed and tactical racing with plenty of pitsops. Only Futaba has won this race.  DONT LET HIM WIN AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

              ---------------------------------

If you remember, the first race, we did without Ezz and MR B. and then postponed the next race because Pogo couldnt make it. Seemed a bit unfair, so i gave Ezz and MrB the same minimum points scored at round 1, which was 3 points  each. Because this has happened its only fair to give all of us one chance to miss a race but be awarded minimum points. So Mick and Tony will be given 2 points each same as what Pogo scored at Cadwell. I know it's less than what Ezz & B scored but we cant say all score 3, because it dont seem fair that Pogo made the race and finished and they got more points. so its going to have to be minimum points for everyone. If someone gets a DNF then you will score Zero points too. Just luck of the draw.  I have updated the Points table. If anyone has an opinion leave it in the forum.

WEIGHTS UPDATED:-

FUTABA                 100kg

MARTIN                   85kg

DIE                            70kg

LEE                            55kg

MICK                          55kg

POGO                          40kg

MR  B                         40kg

BRANDTASTIC..? NOT REALLY

OK......2 Rounds gone. 2 Wet races. 2 clear points in the lead.....If Futaba carries on like that, he'll have 2 Black eyes & 2 Broken knee caps.

But apart from that, CONGRATULATIONS STU.....

Brands Indy was a bit uneventful, only one minor incident with Tony nudging Mr B. But no complaint from him, but i did notice some graffiti on Tony's car the next morning.

Someone had sprayed martin's nickname all down one side.............

Onto Cadwell next guys...

     NEXT RACE CADWELL

 ***NEW RACE DATE***

Brands Indy 5th Feb

Because the race was postponed, due to the fact that Jay couldnt make it, It seemed a bit unfair that we ran the first race without EZZ & Mr B. So i have given them both the minimum points that the last driver scored, which is 3 points. I'm sure you'll all agree this is the right thing to do. See ya sunday guys......BRING ON THE RAIN........

ANDERGAIN BONNER

WINS

The 2012 Season kicks off with a rain soaked Andersthorp, But the Reigning world champ (futaba)can do nothing in the rain. Tony put the Alfa on pole to show everyone how to drive in the rain, well... for one lap he did, then it was goodnight vienna. So Pole to possibly the dole if he carries on like that.

       

But  our photographer from china, Mr Foto ta ker.

shot this snap (below) for us of the new boy living up to his name.. DIE. 

Some drivers were saying the last time they saw a crash like that was at Imola 94 at the hands of Ayrton Senna. After the race it was DIEnamic's turn to drive to the pub, but all the drivers pulled out of the offer and said they were just too tired to go drinking , but thanks DIE...

       

Apart from the first lap incident it was a trouble free race with Lee taking the win for the 3rd time at Andersthorp. And DIE managing to recover well to take 3rd place behind Martin. So its off to Brands Indy next for Round 2. Dont forget to check who's doing what lap times round each circuit by clicking on the track name in  EVENTS & CLASSES link on the left.

   THE BOSS

"Now listen here you lot. ANY..... and I MEAN ANY.....trouble this season, with drivers taking each other out, and i dont mean for a drink. You all know what im talking about. And you will be Punished.

We all want to see wheel to wheel racing and yes a little bit of nudging, but if you take someone out then you must let them pass again. If you carry on, all the drivers will put on there wigs and gowns and view the replay to find a suitable outcome to the incidents. What happened last season was ridiculous, NO I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT FUTABA WINNING THE CHAMPIONSHIP. I Mean Mick and Martin throwing teddy's on the track and ramming each other off deliberately.

Thats all. Thank you for your time Gentlemen."

"But yeah, futaba winning was ridiculous too.."

***HAPPY NEW YEAR***

Here we go guys, 2012 season is about to get under way. kicking off on Sunday 15th January. Lets hope Martin and Mick are still going to entertain us on Teamspeak.

Weve all been on super diet's for the first race so  No weight for anyone. check out the RACERS link to see who's changed teams this year. Tracks still to be confirmed. It was suggested we dont do Monaco or any street circuits, because some drivers were bouncing off the barriers, not gonna mention any names cuz i like Martin.

So Futaba.....Can you retain the title this year or was it just a fluke.

Also i think we should make a habit of starting  the qualifying at 20:55 with the Race starting at bang on 21:00. So were not hanging about all night waiting.

Oh one more thing... to see/post your lap times on this site, click the link on the left called EVENTS AND CLASSES. Then click the track name in the list and wait a few seconds for the times to appear. You can add a time too by clicking the ADD TIME link. Remember to add the weight you were running with, and if it was online add (MP). We found the times were about a second quicker in single player offline mode.

GRAB YOUR KEYS GUYS...........

WERE GOING RACINNNNGGG..

Thursday 15th Dec 2011
