What? Slow French cars? Sign me up!

Wednesday! Wednesday! Wednesday! 2CVs at 8:00 PM Eastern (EDT) (GMT-4) on Wednesday!

If you’ve been wanting to play Forza with everyone but weekends are bad for you, boy do I have the series for you! This one is being run by Viggen, but I’m handling posting about it for now because he lost his password (lol rip). Many of the same people who have raced in Oppo Endurance will also be doing this.

You are allowed to use shared tunes, however they must be built to the correct spec or you will be disqualified.


THE TRACKS

Tracks have been chosen based on length, to better suit the agricultural nature of the car.

This will be a 2 race event format, with each race being equal to approximately 25 minutes, with the number of laps being determined by the median qualifying pace. The final race of the series will be a two hour endurance race.

Weather permutations will be used at the discretion of the race director.

THE RACING

This is folk racing, so contact is to be expected due to the traditionally amateur nature of the races. However, while I may have said these cars are agricultural, do not moo your way through traffic.

Basically think this: If you can pull a Pipo Derani at Sebring 2016, go for it. But don’t be Chaz Mostert at Bathurst!

All races will be run with “Fuel and Tires” damage.

Manual with clutch is forbidden because some people’s wheels prevent the use of clutch.

Notice that the gap between points awarded per position decreases the farther down the grid you finish. Never give up during a race, you can make up a ton of points with just a few positions.

  • If you do not finish race 1 or do not participate in it, you will start from the rear of race 2.

LIVERY RULES

  • Driver number must be displayed prominently on both sides.
  • No tobacco sponsorship. You can change wording to use similar logos, but no names of said companies can be used.
  • There is no required number panel.
