    Come on guys, I’ve only had five teams confirm their line-ups for the Young Driver Test! Let me know your choices for the test to run after the Japanese V-Prix.

    @bnm123 – I still need your reserve number for next year please.

    Also @diceman, @Formula-1, @bnm123, @JamieFranklinF1, @full-throttle-f1, @mathers, @pezlo2013, @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1, @sirspuddington, @aiera-music, @redmist, @blockwall2, @theawesomefish

    The Young Driver test will take place once again this year, this time at Fuji. Rules are the same as last season:
    – Two day test
    – You can run one driver per day, or one driver over both days
    – Whomever you run must have competed in less than 5 FV races
    – You cannot run drivers whom are part of another teams academy unless I receive written permission from that team

    Can you please PM your line-ups for the test that will take place once the season concludes.

    @formula-1 – I have to say I agree. Hutchinson had a much easier time of finishing 5th in Australia when the car was much much quicker, but then there weren’t many cars left in this race…

    I’m torn on Harrison, he seemed good in FV2, and has been sporadically good, but he seems to have thus far been beaten by every team mate – although he has suffered terribly from reliability, however he needs to up his game ahead of next year or he risks a pasting from Halvosen.

    SPOILERS

    Well wasn’t that just the race that kept on giving?! Certainly wasn’t expecting that rain shower and the controversy at the end is huge! Gutted for Marcus, was driving a brilliant race from a poor qualifying until he retired, and while I’m happy with Powers in fourth, can’t help but a feel a podium slipped through his grasp with all the spins, but still a solid twelve points and a happy team principal. Delighted for Westwood, thoroughly deserved podium after the speed but problems encountered in recent races, likewise Meteor who earn some valuable points, but I cannot express how gutted I am for Felix Beyer and AMR. If I’m not mistaken the lad led most of the race and was on for fourth at the very least, but I suppose that’s the nature of the beast. Hopefully he can return with another strong showing at his home track next time out and prove he needs to be re-signed!

    @formula-1 – I don’t mean to sound harsh – and I certainly can’t talk because I’ve been myself in your position – but there’s only one person’s fault that you’re in debt in the first place.

    Also, I’m sure you’re far from the only team that doesn’t currently have any money to spend on next year.

    Hard to read that session I feel, as surely Westwood and AMR haven’t suddenly shot that far up the order? Also nice to see we still have both cars inside the top ten, just. Nonetheless as Jamie said kudos to them, but I don’t see it lasting.

    You watch, they’ll now lock out the front two rows in qualifying…

    After the most recent Junior Series’ rounds, we have a couple of Champions!

    Congratulations to Hunter Ryan and Felix Perez who have won the VOARS and VARS Championships respectively, both with two rounds to spare! VERS is now a close(ish) fight from nowhere with Leo Brzyski challenging Dmytro Kovalenko, while with three rounds to go in FV3, it is a truly two-horse affair between Drake Davies and Thierry Xylander. Viktor Ostberg is closing in on Klaas van Snelheid in the VWRS, but Kiara Thunder is just a handful of points from taking the title in FV2.

    Important Youth Academy Information
    Youth Academy bidding will stay as it is until the mid-point of the FV2 Winter Series, so as soon as the sprint race of the third round has been posted. Any on-going bids will still count, but new bids will go towards 2017. This also goes for re-signing your young drivers to the academy! If you have not re-signed your young drivers by the time the sprint race of the third FV2 Winter Series round is posted, you will lose them from your academy and be – as per the rules – blocked from bidding on them for three years.

    To date, those who have not re-signed their young drivers for 2016 are:
    Franklin – Rodolfo de la Fuente
    FUN – Yrjänä Vähäsöyrinki
    Ingram – Daniel Bruner
    Liverpool – Didier Arnaud
    Meteor – Nikolajis Christodoulou
    Ocelot – Brittany Johnson
    Rossi – Luca Andreolli

    @Holmqvist, @RoboCAT, @davidnotcoulthard, @ajcross, @sizza, @alexf11995, @fastiesty, @lolzerbob, @bronislav, @hawkaussie

    After this point (sprint race of third round of FV2 Winter Series) I will open seat bidding / deals for the 2016 junior series’ in stages. More will be announced at the time.

    Absolutely delighted with that session, especially after practice! Just.. wow! What laps from the lads. The biggest challenge will be holding those positions now, but it really would be nice to see one of the them sneak a podium…

    Well, that’s rather unimpressive, still – not unexpected. It’d still be nice to get both cars into the top ten in qualifying however.

    @rjoconnell – Absolutely agreed on Lefebrve, astonishingly clean result. Regarding Evans, his rally was insane. Two punctures and still won by over two minutes, and only finished one place lower than he did last year!

    @xtwl – Absolutely, hopefully it gives him a huge confidence boost. Also impressive to see the Hyundai’s speed these last two days, maybe once they’ve got the car sorted they genuinely CAN challenge VW…

    Though it looks like Meeke’s already there, just a shame we won’t get him for every round.

    @lolzerbob – Unfortunately there have been…

    Actually, it probably makes sense to take everyone here: @RoboCAT, @bradley13, @diceman, @Formula-1, @bnm123, @JamieFranklinF1, @full-throttle-f1, @mathers, @pezlo2013, @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1, @sirspuddington, @aiera-music, @redmist

    Unfortunately there have been some issues with the race and so it cannot be broadcast this weekend. All this means is the scheduled one week break between USA & Germany is brought forward a week, and from here on in it should be more or less a complete run to the seasons end.

    Also @Holmqvist – Wonderful. I think your rankings are pretty much spot on and all the work you and @blockwall2 have put into these articles are awesome!
