2017 AmeriCar Road Racing Series

Post by bsoyuz on Thu Dec 01, 2016 4:06 pm

Ceej allowed me to take it over.



The Hanmore AmeriCar Championship Road Racing Series is a multi-class sports car series that holds races on road courses across North America, featuring a championship format (the "Knockout") that eliminates teams from contention over the last third of the season before the "final four" from each class are left to fight for the title in the final race.

The field is made up of three different classes, V8, V6, and 4-Cyl, with each class on track at the same time, fighting for their own separate race wins and championships.

The Cars + Painting Links:
This series will use the PWF Trans-Am mod. Templates are located here, and Car Viewer files are located here.

Saar Eagle (Chevy mesh)


Lenard Cheyenne R37 (Ford mesh)


Xenos Mace (Dodge mesh)


Isanni Inception (Pontiac mesh)
Ratings:
In NASCAR Racing 2003 Season, each AI car has a set of ratings that determines its competitiveness in multiple categories. The numbers given use MIN-MAX as the format. The numbers that you add to the ratings are added to the MIN and MAX together.

SECTION 1 - DRIVER TRAITS

Aggression
Consistency
Finishing
Qualifying

SECTION 2 - DRIVER SKILLS BY TRACK TYPE

Road Course
Short Track
Speedway
Superspeedway

SECTION 3 - CAR (This is determined by the team owner, and all cars on the same team must have the same ratings)

Aerodynamics
Chassis
Engine
Reliability

Pit crews will be rated 80-100.

For this series, 40-60 will be the base for all ratings except for the “Engine” rating, because each class will have its own base. The engine base ratings are as follows:

V8 Class: 80-100
V6 Class: 40-60
4 Cylinder Class: 0-20

For each section, you will submit ratings of 3, 6, 9, and 12. These are the numbers added to the base rating in each section. If you do not send me ratings, your entires will be set to 0-0 ratings on all atributes except engine, which will be a huge disadvantage. Don't assume that the Road Course track type will be used everywhere, so keep that in mind when filling out your ratings.

For example, you should send ratings like this:

Aggression 6
Consistency 12
Finishing 3
Qualifying 9

And so on until all three sections are filled. I will not accept ratings that are done incorrectly.
Points + Championship format:
POINTS

The top 8 finishers per class will receive points.

1st - 15
2nd - 13
3rd - 10
4th - 8
5th - 6
6th - 4
7th - 2
8th - 1

THE KNOCKOUT

Each class championship is decided by an 8-man Knockout. After race 8, all race winners as well as the remaining drivers in the top 8 without a victory will be locked into the Knockout. From there, points are no longer used among the championship contenders. During races 9-12, the lowest finishing contender will be eliminated from the Knockout until four drivers remain going into race 13. The highest-finishing contender in race 13 will win the championship in their class.

After race 9: 8th place eliminated.
After race 10: 7th place eliminated.
After race 11: 6th place eliminated.
After race 12: 5th place eliminated.

However, the points leader after race 8 will receive one mulligan during races 9-11. If they finish last among the contenders during one those races, they get to use the mulligan and stay in the Knockout, and no elimination will take place. The mulligan may only be used once, so finishing last again will mean elimination. The mulligan may not be used in race 12.

Team Chart and Schedule

Entry form:

Code:
Car Number: (V8's get 00-99; V6's 600-699; 4-Cyl 400-499)
Class: (V8, V6, 4-Cylinder)
Driver Name:
Age: (minimum age is 16)
Hometown/State/Province/Nation:
Sponsor: (real and fictional companies are allowed)
Make:
Team Name:
Team Owner:

Teams may field entries in multiple classes. As normal, I'll take the entries I feel like doing so. In V8, teams will only have up to 2 cars, in V6 and 4-Cyl the number rises to three cars per team.

I'd like to see class distribution follow, from most entries to fewest, V6 (14) > V8 (12) > 4-Cyl (10). All entries that are accepted will attempt every race; there will be no part-time teams.

All cars are due December 25th.

Go nuts.[/quote]

Pro Tip: ONLY SEND ME STUFF AFTER I APPROVE YOUR ENTRIES.

Also, DO NOT FORGET, ALL ENTRIES IN THIS SERIES ARE FULL-TIME, THEY BASICALLY MAKE YOUR DRIVERS INCAPABLE OF HAVING FULL-TIME COMMITMENTS ELSEWHERE, BE WARY OF WHO YOU PUT IN THE SERIES.

Check this out!

If "Mad" Max Gibson is awarded the final grid spot in the 2 digit # category...

He'll really be the "last of the V8s!"

CARS THAT I NEED THE RATINGS FROM:
#6 - Yannick Dubois (Mother of Invention)
#10 - Alexis Farr-Dubois (Mother of Invention)

#404 - Katie Maggio (Mother of Invention)
#464 - Keegan Mallory (Mother of Invention)

#611 - Bryce Wayne, III (Mother of Invention)
#631 - Jordan Scar (RedViperGaming)
#638 - Brenden Rourke (Casey Lester)
#674 - Treck Tauger (Rovenami)

CARS THAT I NEED FLATS FROM:
#460 - Natasha Pierce (V8fan12)

#619 - Rylan Lott (V8fan12)

If you do not get me at least the ratings until December 25 (exactly 7 days from now), your cars will either be replaced (in case you fail to send me both ratings and flats), or they will be set to 0-0 Ratings (in case I have only the flat), if you only fail to send me the flat, I'll just make a placehilder one, so at the least, get me the ratings.

There will be no exceptions.

Since I want to try something new, I've decided I won't do videos for AmeriCar, I'm gonna showcase what happens in the races with "magazine articles".

Here's the first one of the race in Sebring: >>>HERE<<<

Reactions:
MacPherson Motors reflects on season-opening race at Sebring
A day of pomp and circumstance for the newly resumed Hanmore AmeriCar World Series was a rough one for the MacPherson Motors drivers. Indira Patel had a mostly quiet 7th place finish, picking up 2 points, while team owner Connor MacPherson was involved in an early incident with Eddie Vaughan's #644 and came home 10th with no points.
"We had kind of a rough day today. I definitely apologize to Eddie, that was honestly just me racing him too hard in the opening laps. Glad Indira picked up the slack, we know what to expect and we'll work on it for Long Beach."
Privateer Scott O'Leary celebrates solid opening round
In a interview after his 3rd place finish in the V6 Class, the Oregonian expressed some surprise in his performance. "Really? This is pretty cool. I wasn't expecting to do this well in a car prepared by me and my buddies back in Medford at the Auto Palace. Hi Mom!"
Karson Garrison takes home 5th in V8
The young Texan was quoted with saying "My goal here is just to keep the fenders clean, and I did just that. If we keep doing that we can win one of these darn things."
V4 Report: Lindgren crashes, Gonzalez struggles
Swedish Erik Lindgren left touring cars for the series, and his first interview already seems homesick. "I know I'm in the lowest category out here, but I think the 631 should mind his manners a little when he's off pace. Can't really squeeze a guy going into turn 1." Young Mexican driver Isabella Gonzalez was mostly off-pace all day, finishing 8th and barely making a point. Lindgren was 7th.
OOC: I like this idea. It gives a cool Stock Car Racing-type feel and prevents a cluttered thread.

2017 Race 1 - Smash Beer AmeriCar Classic (Sebring International Raceway):
Wood Scores Podium Finish in First Professional Sports Car Outing


Flint, Michigan's Aubrey Wood earned an impressive podium finish in-class in the opening round of the 2017 Hanmore AmeriCar Championship Road Racing Series. The #413 Lenard R37 was the second car in the 4-Cylinder class to take the checkered flag among a total of ten starters.

After spending the first several years of her racing career competing in both club racing on road courses and stock car racing on short tracks, the Irish-born driver has recently steered her career towards the stock cars, having raced in numerous late model leagues as well as various divisions of FARC. With the discontinuation of the FARC Super Series program of Desert Star Motorsports - the team for which she drives in FARC - Wood was only able to compete in a handful of races last year, all coming in the Lowe Dollar Series.

While still attempting to arrange more FARC races in 2017, she has also decided to try her hand at road racing on the professional level by teaming up with Bernard Anderson for the full season of AmeriCar, competing in the 4-Cylinder class for Anderson's new team; Shamrock Enterprises.

Both Wood and Anderson made a good first impression in the series with their second-in-class result at the famed Sebring International Raceway, coming after a smoothly-executed and largely uneventful race from the team. Throughout the event, Wood was unable to put up a challenge to the 4-Cyl class winner Natasha Pierce, who led every lap and opened a commanding lead over the #413 Lenard R37.

Following the race, a delighted Wood would say to reporters, "I'm really, really happy with how the race went! I was sooo nervous all week and I had no idea how fast we would be or if I would ever find the right feel for the car, but it all went great! Second place is pretty awesome!"

Anderson stated that he was pleased with the efforts of the team and was confident that he had made the right choice in hiring Wood to drive the car.

The next race for AmeriCar will be on the streets of Long Beach, California in a companion event with V8 ChampCar.

Would it be possible to get at least 1 video for this series?!

I'd love to see this mod motoring around the track! Smile

I honestly can't make out any of the details of the cars... the pictures are just too small.

The intention for me is to finish the NAAC season before I step back into AmeriCar, the Dirt Series and another one I've planning to bring back. Since NAAC is in its halfway point for now, I believe I'll go back to these series by May/June

Since my motivation for AmeriCar somewhat dwindled because of track issues, I'll do quick writeups for the next few races. I may or may not do videos for the Knockout Stages, but nothing is confirmed.

Race 3 - Trois-Rivieres

The third race of the Americar season was the prestigious Grand Prix of Trois-Rivieres, 67 laps around the streets of the Quebéc city. The pole position was nailed by Dima van Hall in the Tony Long Autosport #19. In his left side Max Gibson was laid on.

However, after the startof the race, van hall quickly lost the lead to the australian, who would have a strangehold for the V8 Class lead, while Rip Tyler battled Reid Bullet for the lead of the V6 Class and Darnell Wright held on for the 4 Cylinder lead.

The first two drivers to retire were Kurt Gordon and Carl Astor, after contact in turn two in the second lap, Gordon would roll once, but ended on his wheels, and both drove back to their garages, a testament to the durability of the cars in the series.

Other notable incidents included Isabella Macena crashing into the Porte Duplessis tire wall on the 18th lap, Alexis Farr-Dubois would crash on the Depailler corner on lap 28, reitiring on the spot, and Jordan Scar was the last retirement due to crashes, after losing the car on the Stade right-hander by lap 59.

While Max Gibson ran away with the V8 lead, Rip Tyler was dominating on the V6, until an unknown mechanical failure took him out of the running with 15 laps to go, he was one of the many mechanical retirements of the race, which included: Aubrey Wood (Lap 14), Jesse Wales (Lap 27), Natasha Pierce (Lap 46), Mason Yokoyama (Lap 55), Scott O'Leary and Rylan Lott (Lap 56).

On the 4 cylinders it was a battle for supremacy and Darnell Wright and Isabella Gonzalez fought for the lead lap by lap, until an daring move by Gonzalez in the middle of Boulevart de Carmel, the fastest part of the circuit, with only 7 laps to go, guaranteed her the lead and the win, joining V8 winner Max Gibson, who only lost the lead to Dima van Hall in the pit cycles, and V6 winner Reid Bullet.
