February LCC Rocket
« on: January 06, 2014, 11:17:11 AM »

The car specs for the Rocket are 581 points and 197 HP maximums. Naturally aspirated only please but other than that bolt on any engine parts you wish to get these numbers. Tuning is open. Tires are sports softs.

points for the series will be awarded as follows

pos.=pts.
1=35        9=16
2=32       10=14
3=29       11=12
4=26       12=10
5=24       13=8
6=22       14=6
7=20       15=4
8=18       16=2

There will be bonus points this time around as well. In a field of eight or less qualifiers the pole sitter will get two points. In a field with more than eight qualifiers the pole sitter is awarded four points and his front row counterpart will get two points. And no matter the size of the field the runner of the fastest lap in the race gets three points.

Format will be enough qualifying time for three maybe four laps. Then a race of approximately 25 mins.

As was the case this past month the room officially opens at 9 Q starts at 9:30. All times are eastern. The lounge of choice at this moment will be Baked's place. Want to join in, I must receive your friend invite by 5 on Friday. Consider that the pre registration deadline.

Any questions have I not been clear? More than possible but rather quite likely, just ask.

Have you decided on the tracks for this event?

Silverstone in various configurations and Matterhorn.

Promoters note the sponsor for the Matterhorn races dropped out and those races have been replaced with ones at Apricot Hill and Brands Hatch.

Will there be a spec for this vehicle, or stock/tuneless?

I would imagine tuning is open, because of the low top speed when stock?

Thanks

Tracks we will start and finish the month at Silverstone first week will be the National and International circuits. While week 4 will have us on Stowe and the full Grand Prix tracks. The two weeks in the middle we have us visiting Apricot forward and reverse and both Brands Hatch courses..

Man in the cockpit view around these track I can imagine what it was like to be a F1 driver back in the 60's. Hopefully it will be enjoyable enough to others to generate enough interest for the series.

I am really looking forward to this one.  I love these little cars, to the point I'd love to have a real one.

I just kinda wish there was one week at Cote de Azure.


I guess I could still try to plan and organize a full Gran Prix, 78 lapper, there.  :) Once the pit stop bug is fixed.

Do it so it would coincide with the real Monaco GP.

I've thought about that, but Monaco GP is the same day as the Indy 500. Which means it'd have to be close to the Undy 500.  I figure that may be a bit of a long race overload.
