Formula SGK 2018 Summer Series!

4,569 KingHandspider  3.4 years ago

The first Formula Silver Grand Championship is set to begin with the 2018 Summer Season!

Formula SGK is a new development in SimplePlanes, with teams building a car, having an appointed driver drive the car on a pre-determined course, over a number of laps, while recording their screen, after which their race will be compared to others. A time-trial, essentially.
The development period has already begun, as has the choosing of race locations. At this time, the only three Grands Prix currently planned are:

Maywar Grand Prix, held at Maywar's Mirage Speedway

Wright Isles Grand Prix, held at Sky Park City's GP Raceway

Smirish Grand Prix, held at Smireland's Athair Speedway

(Any mods which implement similar speedways to the three listed above, albeit in alternate locations, may apply for their own additional Grand Prix race. Final application date for the 2018 Summer Season is June 1st.)
(Grand Prix Application Form)

The only two teams currently registered and developing are:

Aurora Racing

Takitech

Demon Industries

Team Registration (Application Form) for the 2018 Summer Season will continue until May 10th.

AN ADVISORY TO ALL PARTICIPANTS!

I highly recommend checking the various regulation manuals often, as I am making regular updates to all of them.

AN ADVISORY TO PEOPLE WHO ARE MORE POPULAR THAN ME!

I would appreciate it if people could get the word out about this! Because with two teams, there won't be very much competition.

ANOTHER ADVISORY

If you mess up on a RACE lap (this does not include corner cutting >:( ) such as flipping the car, or "rapid unexpected disassembly", then you will be allowed to restart that lap, continuing from there.

If all four wheels leave the track, then 5 seconds will be added to your time.

    @Caveman999 Not yet, and that is true. if the default tires are used, and the car is sufficiently drag-free and light, it will be enough.

    @DemonSniper8 okay sounds good. Sadly we are not allowed to build our own car in this season so we need to use the andycar. I'll make a team post soon

    @TakicraftCorporation well I'm great at making active aero work, and my cars tend to get pretty fast around a track. My Shentha G-X4 that I just released corners at over 300mph on gold prix.

    @TakicraftCorporation can I join your team? I'll take mine out, because I can't find a driver. It'd be cool to make our own car, but we'd need a driver because I'm not on pc and can't get maywar lol

    @KingHandspider regarding JMicah4’s map, it’s unusable because of terrain glitches, unable to drive on them

    It’s pretty old though, have to test it next morning
