I’m glad I was a bit overkill on the cooling for our Vauxhall engines this season, we’ve been sitting on the grid for a long time now! When are the lights going to go out Virtual Charlie Whiting!??!9th August 2014, 19:18 at 7:18 pm #270232
@jamiefranklinf1 If you’re going to be playing, surely you’d rather have Franklin for the name of your team?7th August 2014, 15:20 at 3:20 pm #269650
Do you have a date from Apple that they will be putting it on the App Store? And have you got any more news on a team and driver editor update? I’m looking forward to buying this so much, this could be the best game I’ve ever seen on iPad!6th August 2014, 20:41 at 8:41 pm #2696125th August 2014, 10:51 at 10:51 am #269522
@bradley13 Milkovich would be good too, I’m not fussy as long as there are two Franklins with no front wings or wheels!5th August 2014, 10:20 at 10:20 am #269519
The titles over. Come on Powers, spear into Ruiz and Hoskins in turn one. That’s my only hope!4th August 2014, 18:32 at 6:32 pm #269499
@redmist as I say, details will be finalised closer to the time, and you will be creating a team, but that’s all there is to tell you at the moment4th August 2014, 16:41 at 4:41 pm #269488
@redmist it certainly is the junior championship, if you want a team for next season, you definitely can do, final details will be sorted closer to the time :)4th August 2014, 9:48 at 9:48 am #269468
Can I just point out, Option 2 and 3 two possibilities within them, can you please select one of those if you chose 2 or 3, and can you send them to me in a private message, otherwise they will get lost within the forum and I won’t be able to add them together – make my life easy guys! :P
And @sirspuddington its not you or anyone, I just think that now we have so many options regarding EJGPC drivers, two new drivers each per season would be slightly overkill, as Bradley says3rd August 2014, 18:17 at 6:17 pm #269441
I think perhaps the penalty was a little harsh, but either way I love the official twitter account of the championship giving the reasons for the penalty, it is just something that will help the fans understand a little bit better what the issue was, which is great!3rd August 2014, 17:12 at 5:12 pm #269434
Thinking about next season for the IJGPC, I am wondering whether a format change would be in the best interests of the game. As such, I’ve come up with a couple of options for the series going forward. If you would send me a PRIVATE MESSAGE with your preferred option, I would appreciate it :)
Option 1) Keep it all as it is. Everyone who wants to can run a team in the IJGPC, and create two drivers to race in their team. PROS: Everyone who wants a team can create two drivers to possibly become part of their team in the future. CONS: If someone chooses not to have a team, they don’t get a chance to create any drivers to race in the series.
Option 2a) All teams get to create a single driver, and they will be run in fictional teams in the IJGPC alongside other drivers randomly created. PROS: everyone can create a driver, and nobody can create more than one, meaning there is no chance for someone to make two drivers that will be amazing. Fictional teams mean their own history can be created, without the ties to real life records. CONS: Fictional teams may not be a problem, but newly created teams won’t have such an identity for people to support.
Option 2b) All teams get to create a single driver, and they will be run in teams that have ran in the real life junior motorsport series, such as ART Grand Prix and Prema Powerteam. PROS: as above, nobody can create two drivers that can be dominant, while real life teams give instant support to some teams above others for some of us, I’m sure I’m not the only one who supports certain teams in the Junior championships around the world. CONS: people could become hung up on the name of the team, which is not a deciding factor in the success of a driver, every team is equally as good. Also, it comes with a history, as the teams have previous records in other series.
Option 3a) All teams can create two drivers and they will be run in fictional teams in the IJGPC. PROS: Two drivers created per team means plenty of choice come the end of the season, and the opportunity to create two world class drivers. CONS: People could make two great drivers, disadvantaging others
Option 3b) All teams can create two drivers, and they will be run in teams that have run in the real life junior motorsport series. Pros and Cons as above.
I look forward to hearing people’s opinions through Private Message, please pick one option, and if there is a tiebreak come the end, the tied options will move forward to a second vote. Thank you :)3rd August 2014, 12:44 at 12:44 pm #269426
@davidnotcoulthard Ooh, what is your job? Are you Charlie Whiting in disguise, pressing the big button that gets it all going? :P3rd August 2014, 10:51 at 10:51 am #269411
I think F1 97 was a slightly different case, as the whole livery remained intact, it was just the actual Rothmans word that was changed, exactly the same as when non tobacco advertising was used in real life. The difference here is that the Williams won’t be using a real livery at all, but an all blue effort without even accurately representing the livery of the car in say, Bahrain where alcohol advertising was banned. However, Codemasters have said they did all they could, so that livery won’t be affecting my decision of whether or not I will buy the game at all, as ultimately when you are sitting in the car you won’t see all that much of the livery any way – the price and possibility of a release of another game in the near future will determine that.29th July 2014, 15:14 at 3:14 pm #26869628th July 2014, 14:06 at 2:06 pm #268567
