F1F Xbox 360 World Championship – Season 2: NOW COMPLETE!
7th June 2012, 20:17 at 8:17 pm #131513
Newcomers! Although the championship has already begun, anyone is still free to join whenever they like! We currently have a full grid of 16 drivers across 8 teams and we cannot increase that number as F1 2011 is limited to running 16 cars in a online race. If you join we will place you on reserve… HOWEVER this doesn’t mean that you will just be a ‘bench warmer’ and not get a race. It is highly unlikely that ALL the 16 drivers will be in any one race due to other commitments. The reserve driver will take the place of the absent drivers seat for that race. Post on the forum if you are interested!
So…. Here it is… Season 2 of the critically acclaimed F1F XBOX 360 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
If you have a copy of F1 2011, a Xbox 360 to play it on and a Xbox Live subscription then you have come to the right place!
We currently have a great group of drivers who race cleanly and fairly. Season 1 of the championship was simply amazing. The championship was won by Herbert Lemon after finishing level on points with his rival Omorfos Kevin (Powderfinger).
Want to be part of the online Championship? Take a look at our wiki page for information on the rules, the race calendar and the team vacancies still available.
We race on Monday evenings where invites are sent around 8.20pm (GMT).
Please post indicating which team you’d like to drive for along with your Xbox gamertag. New drivers will be distributed teams on a first come, first serve basis.
May the best driver win… but most importantly…
Have fun!7th June 2012, 20:21 at 8:21 pm #202774

Please note the following rule changes from last season. If you disagree with these let me know. I created these rules to clarify problems from last season.
1.If a driver would like to appeal the race result, they must lodge their appeal before 8.00pm (GMT) on the day following the race. Although the whole season was virtually trouble-free, this is in response to the problems we had in the aftermath of the final round. It did take nearly a week to confirm the race result!! If no-one claims they would like to appeal, the result will be declared at 8.00pm (GMT).
2. To score points you must finish the race. This is to prevent drivers in last place disconnecting before the race ends. With the few drivers we had in some races last season, there were cases where drivers disconnected happlily knowing they would still get points. This rule is to encourage drivers to race to the flag.. and you never know.. might even make a place on the last lap!
To check out the rules as well as the calendar and the current driver line-ups see the new wiki page below.7th June 2012, 21:04 at 9:04 pm #2027807th June 2012, 21:06 at 9:06 pm #202781

2nd Choice: Mercedes
3rd Choice: Sauber10th June 2012, 15:47 at 3:47 pm #202784

So Mclaren have 3 drivers this season? Seems like an unfair advantage over me and McWoblin in the Renault :P11th June 2012, 17:40 at 5:40 pm #202787
