We will race 2 Championships: 1967 F1 and 1967 F2. There will also be an overall championship adding both of them.
1967 F1 Championship will consist of 6 races. Best 5 out of 6 results will count for the 1967 F1 title.
1967 F2 Championship will consist of 6 races, each including 2 heats. Each heat will count as a separate race. Best 5 out of 6 results will count for the 1967 F2 title.
Drivers will receive 10 points for finishing each race. If you do not complete all the laps, you will be awarded a percentage of the 10 points depending on the percentage of the race you completed. All drivers that start a race will receive their % of the basic 10 points, even if they finish the race in 9th position or higher.
In addition, the top 8 finishers will receive points as follows:
1st -10 points
2nd - 8
3rd - 6
4th - 5
5th - 4
6th - 3
7th - 2
8th - 1
Teams of up to 3 drivers are accepted. Teams' points will be equal to the total points received by the individual drivers but only the 2 best results will count. Teams with 3 members will receive the points earned by 2 drivers that finish in the 2 best positions in each race. Teams of 2 drivers will receive all the points earned by both drivers. All team members must drive the same cars.
If we have no teams conformed before the start of the season, points will be awarded according to the chassis used.
1967 F1 sessions will consist of a 30m Practice followed by a race, as defined in the Schedule. Races are set to be about 40% of a full GP. If the server is available, we will host a 2 hours Practice before the Official one.
1967 F2 races will consist of a 20 minutes practice followed by the 1st heat. Inmediatly after this 1st heat is finished, we will host a 15 minutes practice followed by the 2nd heat. Each heat will count as a separate race for the Points Table.
We will be hosting practice races in the OFF weekends. They will consist of 1 Int/short race at the next scheduled track with a 30 minutes practice.
Server IP: 188.8.131.52:31411
We will race on Saturdays, starting the Official Practice at 18:00GMT, but we will adapt this to the DST stuff when it changes.
We will be using Intermediate damage, so SHIFT-Rs are available to all drivers on lap 1, anywhere, without any penalty. On subsequent laps all drivers that are forced to SHIFT-R MUST come into the pits for a stop&go penalty.
If, as a consequence of an accident, a car stops inside the pits and must do a shift-R, that car must also serve the stop&go penalty. The driver can move his car inside the pits, do the stop&go and rejoin the race OR he can serve the penalty in any subsequent lap, except the final one.
The driver should announce his impending pit stop with "PI" or "pit in", and his exit with "PO" or "pit out". The driver must make one pit stop for each shift-R. Pit stops can be served at any time during the race, but must be served before the final lap. NO SHIFT-Rs are allowed in the last lap, so if you break your car in that lap, thatīs it. Your race is finished.
A 40 second penalty will be applied for any missed pit stop.
We do not allow any modifications to the 1967 F1 chassis/engines combos, period. Any driver found using altered physics will be banned from the League.
Same is valid for the 1967 F2 cars used in non-points events.
g. Chassis of Choice
Each team must select a Chassis before the start of the season. However, drivers can change their car of choice once per season.
No chatting is allowed after the official practice starts. Only 'PI' and 'PO' are allowed. If it would be possible, leave the 'sorry' for the post race comments.
i. Turn 1 incidents
They are very common and we would not like them to spoil the fun. All T1 incidents will be reviewed in detail and penalties will be applied if they are deserved. Be patient and keep the distance. No races are won at T1.
j. Post race reports
All drivers are encouraged to post his comments about each race, either positive or negative. However, we will not tolerate any flame war here. All protests about incidents must be emailed to me right after the race with a copy of the replay from the incident/s. No exceptions to this rule, period.
If anybody would want to discuss an incident in public, it is ok, BUT keep flames out of the thread. That discussion/analysis must be useful to avoid other incidents, not to find a guilty of charge.
If you have any doubt or question, shoot
All other AtlasF1 Legends League rules are in effect. We should meet at iGOR's AtlasF1 chatroom (Atlas) that IS NOT passworded. All practices and races will be passworded. We will use the same password we used in season 15, except a change is required, in which case I will announce it 1 week before the change is in effect.

Also the F2 race distances seem quite long if it isn't the combined lapcount.

THe idea is to race at the new Spa track whenever it is released.
About the F2 distances, we host 2 heats, 50% of the total laps each. One heat right next to the other.

Running it as two totally separate events is less harsh if you don't make it to the end of one or other race, since you still get points for the one you do finish, and I am not sure there would be any benefit in splitting the total laps into two races otherwise, since you might as well just do all the laps in one go if it is only points for aggregate results after teh full total of laps is completed, rather than making them separate races.

Glad to see you around
About the points stuff, using the combined time of both heats would be an extra work for the admin, me , since I would have to redo the beatiful Excel spreadsheet I use to calculate the points standings
Last season I took each heat as a separate race with full points. Sincé our points system is a mix of points for position and points for laps completed, I guess that giving each race half the points would give results pretty similar to the combined time procedure. With the old system, if you did not finish race 1 it would be extremely weird that you can win overall, but F2 gave twice the points of an F1 race, which was not fair I would say.

(Also agreed that doing things based on time and having to add stuff up by hand is also not going to help your admin workload, it was more in answer to Donnie's question about how they handled heats back in the 60s. The thing they also had, of course, was that there was most likely prize money for winning each heat, setting fastest lap etc., so again, even if you broke down in race 1 and so could no longer win overall, it was still worth trying again for race two, since there were other prizes up for grabs).

Ok. That´s a deal Off to modify the Excel file now!!
