As usual, you all have the option to create two new drivers to go into Tier 3 for the 2017 season. Can you please send me a private message with the names and nationalities of your new created drivers. If you do not wish to create any drivers can you please let me know anyway. I will be accepting entries for new drivers until the end of January.7th January 2017, 14:36 at 2:36 pm #3342192nd January 2017, 14:28 at 2:28 pm #33416731st December 2016, 12:36 at 12:36 pm #334151
@aiera-music – As always that is a truly beautiful car! I’m not sure I love it as much as last year without the white, but as ever a stunning piece of work.29th December 2016, 13:41 at 1:41 pm #334136
@formula-1 – You reckon you’ll be well placed then? So – what do you predict as an order come Melbourne? :)
So, with the announcement that Hoskins will switch to AMR – and the expected announcement from Franklin that Jochem van Snelheid will take the second seat, as Nic says above that is the racing line-up sorted for 2017.
That just leaves four teams (FUN, Franklin, Ingram and North Star) with a reserve driver to purchase and then the entry list is totally completed (save chassis & engine names, and in North Star’s case their engine supplier which doesn’t appear to have been confirmed yet?)
Please also note for teams with junior drivers, you only have two days left to re-sign any 2016 juniors for the 2017 season as these must be done before 1st January 2017. Those juniors who have note yet been re-signed to teams are:
Qing Xun Zhao – Downton (@bradley13)
Rodolfo de la Fuente & Leo Brzyski – Franklin (@jamiefranklinf1)
Drake Davies – Lopez (@pezlo2013)
Rodrigo Sanchez – Meteor (@formula-1)
Lowell Hamm – North Star (@theawesomefish)
Hilario Bull – Ocelot (@redmist)
Will Taylor – Westwood (@sirspuddington)
I am aware some teams may not wish to re-sign certain juniors, but just a heads up that if any of you do wish to re-sign any, they do need doing!24th December 2016, 11:25 at 11:25 am #334080
Apologies that this is so late, if I’m honest it totally slipped my mind!
On that note however, now you get both days in one go! So here are the results of the 2016 Young Driver Test!21st December 2016, 13:51 at 1:51 pm #334060
As of now I will be sending out messages to certain IndyVirtual teams to announce their drivers. This is simply to those teams who can announce their drivers as they are at no risk of being signed by an FV team. For those who intend to use former/current FV drivers, your message will come once to announce your drivers once I feel content that those you have chosen are at little to no risk of being wanted by an FV team. If, after announcing a driver, an FV team does want one of your drivers, they will be able to use them and a replacement will need to be found.
And on that note of driver announcements: http://formulav.weebly.com/indyvirtual/palma-announced-at-formation-competition-for-201718th December 2016, 13:48 at 1:48 pm #334024
Please note I currently have the following entry list for 2017: http://f1fanatic.shoutwiki.com/wiki/2017_Formula_Virtual_season#Teams_and_drivers
I have currently associated drivers their car numbers within a team by:
– What I remember previously being informed of by teams
– If one driver has remained, they get the higher car number over any new drivers joining the team, irrespective of whether the new driver finished higher in the championship
– If both drivers are new/remaining, the one who finished higher in the championship has been awarded the higher car number.
If ANY are incorrect as to which car numbers you want each driver in, please let me know via private message and I will switch them around.17th December 2016, 20:41 at 8:41 pm #334019
Just a little bit of news on the engine front: http://formulav.weebly.com/formula-v-news/ds-and-downton-confirm-lopez-as-2017-customer17th December 2016, 14:06 at 2:06 pm #33401616th December 2016, 21:04 at 9:04 pm #33401111th December 2016, 12:04 at 12:04 pm #333946
It’s that time again for the Young Driver Test!
This year it will take place in Jerez after the final race of the season, with the now familiar format. One car per team, two days worth of young drivers testing. You can either use two different drivers, or one driver can do both days. Please note anyone who has competed in five Formula Virtual races or less is eligible to participate. Those who have done 6 or more FV races are not.
Can you please private message me and Nic your choices.11th December 2016, 0:04 at 12:04 am #333938
@blockwall2 – I agree totally on Gerrard. Also interesting to see that you think Franklin will be ahead of us in 2017…
In fact, that brings me on to something I was going to ask the other day:
@robocat, @bradley13, @diceman, @formula-1, @jamiefranklinf1, @mathers, @pezlo2013, @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1, @sirspuddington, @aiera-music, @redmist, @blockwall2, @theawesomefish, @holmqvist
To add to Nic’s list of predictions, what does everyone think the pecking order will be in pre-season testing/come Australia? (which I’m assuming will be the first race again)10th December 2016, 22:05 at 10:05 pm #333935
@mathers – I was just about to ask if that was a stuff-up, it’s fine by me – I’m sure you’re not the first or last!10th December 2016, 21:58 at 9:58 pm #333933
@formula-1 – Check your inbox, sorry for the delay!
@theawesomefish – The problem is rFactor2 in the rain. Drivers tend to pit every five laps, but it’s not just Brazil, Nic tested it at Germany & Japan (both of which worked fine in the wet last season) but the same problem occurred. No settings have been changed (Nic has changed all of them since the problem arose but to no avail) but there was an update at some point apparently – I’m sure @robocat could give more information in case anyone here has a solution?
@redmist – All of the championship standings should now be updated on the Wiki pages. I’m hoping to do all Rookie & Team standings tomorrow.
