Posted by BMSOUZA on 8 January 2015 in Brazilian Portuguese (Português do Brasil)

As "current CEO" of OGFIA, I would like do organize a season in 2015 of the "Formula Plus", the stock car league.

My first idea was using the table of Stock Car Brasil in 2015. The same dates but with no repetition of raceways during the season, like the real StockCar Brasil will does.

If you all create a lot of raceways around OGF World, so, I can use the F1 table.

A rule I want to follow is use only one raceway by country, except if there are semi-independent nations in some country. For example: I can use a raceway in Belgravia and another in Brasonia because are two diferent nations inside Gran-Luslandia.

For now, we have eight raceways:

Slovech (BL)/ Sta.Cruz do Norte (LL)/ Salinas (LT)/ Siete Colinas (AR)/ Elegantia (ZL)/ Mirim Açú (CC)/ Gobras City (GB)/ Margonas (AL)

If I use the StockCar Brasil table, we need more two raceways. If we use the F1 tabel, we will need more twelve raceways.

Feel free to name some racers and racing teams too!!!! I created some racers from various countries in OGF World

-Andruja Balrus (Belgravia)/ -Dario Marques (Brasonia)/ -Irving Zamperton (Gobrassanya)/ -Franck Chamberlain (Ataraxia)/ -Girolamo Gavazzi (Darcodia)/ -Thamy Carandiru (Cariocas)/ -Otokar Dartmor (???)/ -Edwin Berry (???)/ -Svoboda Sivebaek (???)

and some racing teams: -Svarczman (Belgravia)/ -Volante (Brasonia)/ -Astromega (Gobrassanya)/ -Standard (???)/ -Excelsior (???)

but I will not necessarily use all of them. It depends of the colaboration of everyone. I prefer use the names you all creates than that ones I mentioned.

So, we need to decide this untill 14/03. Reply, friends! hehehe

Good idea! Here is my current thinking for F1 format in my countries...

We can stage the Ardisphere Grand Prix at Siete Colinas.

I am planning to build a Grand Prix track in Tárrases... currently "under construction" (planning stage - probably a "street course" not a dedicated track).

The Ardispherian racing team is called "Verde y Blanco" (from the flag - "green and white") Main F1 driver is Néstor "Lolo" Xenakis. Medium level of success.

The Tarrasean team is called "Sea Dragon". Main F1 driver is Afrodita Carapreta (who is the daughter of the Duchess Cleopatra II, ruler of Tárrases). Very successful team despite small country because it is a hobby of the ruling family.

Mahhal does not host a Grand Prix but maybe they have a team and driver. Team name "Star of the South", driver Ttemexarissy (Mahhalians do not have last names). Not a very successful team but a matter of pride to participate if possible.

For stock racing, I think only the Ardisphere has it, but they LOVE it and it is very popular. National premier race PetroSphere 500 at Cartagén and maybe others.

I guess as additional note, I have mostly thought about F1, but for "Formula Plus" I think I would prefer different track (not 7 colinas) - I am making a long track at Princesa on the south coast, following your suggestion. We could put it there...

In Cordoba / Latina there will be a new F1-Raceway. O.k. - then two in Latina, but Cordoba is a 5.000.000 people-metropole with some car-works in or beneath. Will draw it today in the evening. Name is "Giaconda Raceway".

Hi! In Bengonia there is a track here I've added it in the OGFIA article on the wiki.

I am happy with three answers in 24h!!

@Luciano: I am saving the names you mention, but feel free to creatre more racers. A racing team is not necessarily a national racing team, but I will consider the teams you created. Some another tarrasean racer can participate in another racing team from another country. Can exist two or three ardispherian racing teams...

@Histor: I feel myself not etic because I use two (or three) raceways in Gran Lusland only because they are three diferent nations inside the same country, but in your case I can use Cordoba like a exception, because in real F-1, there was a Europa GP and a Germany GP.

@Yiyi: Thank you about including a new raceway in OGFIA! Sure I will include this in F-Plus calendar!

@All: Initially I was thinking only in a StockCar league, based in the F1-2015 table, but I see you all are excited about a Formula league. I created confusion naming a StockCar league as "Formula" Plus, sorry... I will think a way to do this. Maybe, we organize these two leagues. A good way could be using the same calendar to two leagues, but a week later to the second league. Ex: this weekend, a GP of Formula Plus in Bengonia. Next weekend, a StockCar GP in Bengonia too.

Regards!! Bruno Moreira

Another point that I would like to make clearly, adding what I said to Luciano:

Mu intention is use the F1 like example at all. In the GP`s calendar, and in number of racers and racing teams too.

So, if anyone create a racer, say me relatively what real racer he will be. Because I dont have a way to simulate a GP result (al least untill today), so I would like to use the real results.

Suposing Néstor Xenakis (AR) would be Lewis Hamilton, Andruja Balrus (BEL) could be Felipe Massa, etc etc etc

But if anyone show a better idea, we will assume this new idea to create our results. I am the current CEO of OGFIA, but I am not a king. I would like to listen suggestions to do this better.

I have recently built the Belphenia International Speedway in the north suburbs of Remiville in the Olympia territory and would like to participate.

Comment from Tamarindia on 13 January 2015 at 07:13

Hello! If there is room I would like a Tamarindian team, called TTAD, with drivers Erik Valdez Raya & Elcira Núñez (this assumes female drivers permitted?). Whilst massively well supported in their home country, the TTAD team will always be toward the back of the starting grid and plagued with technical troubles... finishing at all will be considered a victory in most races.

I may nominate a raceway if I can get one done before the deadline, I will let you know if that happens. Thanks!

I forgot to add real-life equivalents, I'm not sure who they would be but pick a terrible F1 team - lets say Caterham! Another way to generate results could be to use a simulator. This is a good one although quite tricky to learn... http://www.thirdgeek.com/ns/xkoranate/

@Tamarindia: You can include your racing team directly in OGFIA wiki article, but no problem, I do it for you. And female drivers are permitted, of course. I, Luciano and Histor created someones. About a raceway in Tamarindia, it would be very good. This way, if you finished before February end`s, I cut off Luslandia GP and put Tamarindia in the table. (No problem, because Luslandia is one of my countries, Really, Luslandia is a semi-autonomous republic, like Belgravia, inside Gran-Luslandia)

You mentioned a results simulator. I can not download it this week because I am at work, and in my off-duty I do not have Internet (yeah, I work off-shore). I go home next week, so I can download and test it. Thank you!

@Easky30: Hahaha, you based on "our Brazilian" Interlagos! hehehe! I went to Sao Paulo sometimes but I never went to Interlagos, in the "so far" south zone... Strand Point is very nice!!

Like I said, there are not problems if someone build more than one raceways in his country. We can use each one in different competitions. For now, OGFIA is organizing Formula Plus (like NASCAR, DTM, etc) and Premier Formula (like F1).

(Exception is Latina, but Latina race represent the country, and Cordoba represent the continent)

In the list of raceways, someones are still being build, but now we have a number of raceways similar to F1 table (we are only waiting Akinyaka GP some details to include it in the list) but I can wait tom_m7 finishing it.

Great, PColumbus73!! I will include it in OGFIA wiki article.

About the table of competitions, is nothing decided yet, but, if we use the F1 table, I will exclude Mecyna GP and include Drevet GP.
