Is the Formula OverDrive Series going to use the Auto 3000 templates?

Overdrive will not use the Auto3000 templates, Overdrive will be using OWR, while the Auto3000 mod is Indycar V1.1.

With that, all possible full-time slots are taken for the upcoming season of Formula Overdrive.

AmeriCar still has 4 slots left.

Also:

Cromwell Raceworks 400K One-Offs

The Overdrive Championship Series will close its season on the high banked Texas Motor Speedway, by a clear "oversight" on the part of track and series promoters, the race takes place on November 18th, 2018, 6 years after the ill-fated Hanmore World Championship race, that killed 5 drivers in its running.

36 cars are expected to start the 166 lap event that will give double points to the whole field. There will also be $1,000,000 at stake for the winner, and if a driver voluntarily scraps their starting position, choosing to start 36th, and manages to win the race, they'll win an additional Million Dollars.

Entry form:

Code:
Car Number:
Driver Name:
Age: (minimum age is 16)
Hometown/State/Province/Nation:
Sponsor: (real and fictional companies are allowed)
Team Name:
Team Owner:
Team Hometown/State/Province/Nation:

* I'll take in as many entries as I see fit (I'll probably lock it down on 50-60 total entrants), full-time and part-time cars are all automatically in.
* A number is not taken unless it's on the team charts on TMPedia. I will resolve all number conflicts the way I'd see fitting. I would prefer 3 digit numbers for one-off cars, with either 1, 2, or 9 as the leading digit.


approved one-offs:
#4 - ???
#18 - Ihor Hrystsenko
#51 - Isabella Macena
#71 - Gabriel Macena
#91 - Katherine Williams
#96 - TBA
#190 - Honoka Naito
#196 - Naomi Alnako
#197 - Hiroko Nakawa
#237 - Johann Sigurdsson
#279 - Tanner Steele
#505 - Patrick O'Hannagan
#660 - Gabby McDowell

I am in the process of reforming the ratings system to better fit my intentions for both series. Stand by.

In the meantime continue to enter cars for either AmeriCar or Overdrive Cromwell 400K.

I HAVE POSTED THE NEW SYSTEM. ADAPT YOUR RATINGS ACCORDINGLY.

Thundersport GP + Andrew Van Zant - Race 1 & 2 Press Releases:
Mexico City
37 year old Andrew Van Zant (or Zandt), of New Zealand came into AmeriCar with the intent to race his heart out and grow his dream of being the owner of a legendary team of his own. Coming into his first season, with Xenos and Pirtek on board, Zant qualified fairly well for his first race in his AmeriCar season.

Qualifying seventh, he raced clean and hard and claimed an eighth place finish to which he stated post-race "I am proud of my finish today. Even if I lost a spot, I made it home and got myself and my team, even if it is only me, its first top ten, and I could not be more proud."

He left Mexico City in relatively high spirits.

Circuit of the Americas
Andrew Van Zant returned to the next race and set a fast lap to qualify eighth in only his second start. Due to attrition and fails of ahead, he flew his way to third place and looked as if he had a car to win the race with. Coming off one of the hairpins, himself and Hogan Dundee fought, but Dundee spun him, relegating him to tenth place.

It was so late in the race come his spin that Zant could not regain back to third. He finished in eighth place after recovering some of his spots back. During his post-race interview, it was pretty clear that Zant was none too pleased with Dundee's actions.
"I was racing him cleanly, and he turned and dumped me. I would care to have a chat with him." was all Van Zant would say before he turned away and walked off. It is unsaid if any altercation went down between Van Zant and Dundee.

Nevertheless, with his eighth place finish, Zant currently sits in fifth place in the points standings, behind by thirteen points to first place.

Mexico City:
Casey Lester: HELL YES! That's how we start off the season! Had a lightning-fast car all race and I was gone once I got out front. Gotta thank Terry and the entire team for the hot rod. If this is a sign of things to come, I'm pretty happy about it! Can't believe we did it!

Mardiros Fermanian: We had a good car, but get into a crash. At least we finish 11th.

Provo:
Casey Lester: Another awesome day at the office, eh? Man, that was a fun battle with Andriy there. Congratulations to Emi [Satou] and ATK Racing too! Just didn't quite have it in the second race, but it's excused by how Race 1 went! Spectacular day yet again!

Re: 2018 AmeriCar Championship Road Racing Series and Overdrive Championship Series

Post by UndyingLight Yesterday at 3:21 pm

Oh boy, I need to catch up on the press releases!

Thundersport GP @ Mexico City:
Andrew Van Zant (occasionally spelled Zandt, as is in this series), who is coming into his first owner/driver seat in a racing format. Usually, he runs in a series and has someone else own his car. However, this isn't the case with his first stint in AmeriCar, as he owns this one-car team and he is driving for it. Nonetheless, Zant has shown to be pretty quick in his #77 Pirtek Xenos chassis.

"I am to try my best here at Mexico City, and rather, the full extent of this season. Pirtek and Xenos have jumped on board to help me in my likeness to try and win some races, and perhaps, a championship title. This is not the fastest car out here, but you can understand that I will hunt you down, and pass you as best I possibly can."

"Here's to a good season, in AmeriCar. May the best lad win."

Coming out of qualifying, Zant has a decent day with qualifying tenth. He will make his way through the field. During the race, which was plagued with a bit of chaos, Zant kept his nose clean throughout the day, and maintained good pace. He would come home eighth. A good debut, for the New Zealander.



Austin - Circuit of the Americas:

Coming in to the round of Austin, at the Circuit of the America's, Zant showed a faster pace during practice and qualifying, even at one point, having the lap to beat. However, his pace dropped marginally in qualifying, where he would take a seventh place grid start, to which he promptly said over the radio "I did better....and I can do better."

During the race, Andrew Van Zant capitalized on the failures and whoas of the leaders, eventually finding himself in second place. Coming out of a turn, Hogan Dundee and Andrew Van Zant slide together and Zant would go around out of the second position. "What was that for?" was all that was said over the radio. Nevertheless, Andrew Van Zant got very little damage and was able to continue on in tenth place.

The ground Zant lost to Dundee spinning him was very little gained back. Zant would finish ninth, after having such a promising run. During his post-race interview, Zant was explicitly displeased. While there were no swears, and Zant remained calm, you could tell he was not very happy with Hogan Dundee. He again stated "What was that for?" and proceeded to hop off stage and head to his hauler. He shunned the reporters who followed, too.


Provo - Provo Motorsports Park:
Being unfamiliar with Provo Motorsports Park, naturally, it took Andrew Van Zant to catch his rhythm while in practice and qualifying. He did not qualify well, outside the top ten and had ground to make up. To which, he promptly did not make up as he would finish outside the top ten. He never caught his rhythm and he made note of in his press release.

"I stayed clean, but I could not find my footing on this blasted track, and that cost me in the end. I will do better next time."

Long Beach:
That he did, as even though he qualified poorly, he was able to make his way up through the pack due to attrition and he kept his nose clean. No fights were picked, and no nosebleeds are to have happened. He ended the day with a finish in seventh, which would award him his third top ten in four races. He would be placed in seventh in points. Not too shabby for a New Zealander.

Edmonton:
Arguably his worst performance yet, he was brutally slow in pace during practice, and he thought it could have been faulty machinery. Nothing was done but a couple tweaks, and a changed radiator, but this did not help as he couldn't grasp the track, and he qualified down past 20th place. His worst qualifying yet.

Consider this: He kept his nose clean all race long, but was never once prevelant in this race. He finished outside the top ten, and top fifteen to make up his worst finish and worst result yet at a track this season. Knowing Zant, would he try to wittle his way with a big finish at Mosport, the next track on the schedule?

That is left up to Zant to be determined, and he has said "I will do amazing things next race, betofore my machinery should decide not to give up on me."

He leaves Edmonton in ninth in points.

Mosport:
He turns a new page and is incredibly fast, more speed than prior at Mosport. Having been here a couple times to Canada in racing ventures, he has raced Mosport dozens of times and knows the track well. In practice, he was one to watch as he would set quick times, which are comparable to the top three in points. Qualifying was no exception, as he set a blazing fast lap to fourth place grid spot.

He used this to his advantage and was able to weasel his way through attrition and his opponants to finish a distant, but great second place. His best of the season.

His post-race interview was very short, as he'd say "That is more like it, folks," wink, and exit the room.

He now sits in seventh in points. He may be an underdog for the championship. Keep an eye out on Andrew Van Zant
