Formula 5 is a long-running online league, hosted by open-wheel enthusiasts, for open-wheel enthusiasts. Starting March 1st, Formula 5 will be starting its eighteenth season of racing (we've been doing this since 2009)! We'll run every Thursday night, with practice starting at 7:30 ET. We use the IndyCar V1.1 mod in .pta physics, on mostly road courses and short ovals.

Some additional notes:

-We run with a hacked .exe that makes the cars lighter, gives them more torque, and expands the garage settings. The cars drive something similar to how Champ Cars would drive in the late-90's. We also run with open setups. Your setups for vanilla NR will work, but you will probably want to tighten them up a fair bit.

-We also run with AI cars, or "bots". The reason for having bots is to give the player a goal to beat, so if you show up and you can at least outrun a few bots, you're probably in good shape for the race. The Top 10 in driver's points at the end of the season are allowed (but not required) to enter their own bot for the following season.

-Drivers of all backgrounds, talents, and experience levels are allowed. We're all doing this for fun in our leisure time, so we don't take ourselves as seriously as certain other leagues. If you show up and make a fool of yourself, you probably won't make too many people happy, but it's better that you do it here than somewhere else (this isn't an invitation to deliberately make a fool of yourself. We have rules and we enforce them).

Everything you'll need to come run with us can be found on our Discord server. We do have a list of claimed numbers, so you'll want to check the #online_league_stuff channel to make sure the number you want isn't taken. We look forward to having some new people race with us!

We just had a legendary race at Gravis City Zone 11 tonight. Video coming at some point, either from me or somebody else. This race deserves it either way. All I can say is that it ended in a stupider version of Wickens vs. Rossi for the last podium position.

Congrats to John Poole III for whacking the field in his first run with us! We've been impressed by the car counts for the three races we've run so far. Rounding together fifteen people for an NR race in 2018 is a difficult thing to do.
