1- The Car

Formula Ford
PI: S781
Tune by: Jedeye Jones (Filename: OZFMFINAL)


For every race, every car will be using this LOCKED TUNE. You can search for "OZFMFINAL" in the description or search for the creator "Jedeye Jones".

Please display your Race Number on the Car. You can download the Series Numberboard by searching for "ozfm ff" by "Jedeye Jones". There are no other Livery Guidelines, so go nuts. Just remember nothing offensive or anything that breaches the Forza 6 Livery Rules.

4- The Championship

There will be Two Championships, a Driver and a Team Championship. You need to participate in 5 out of 8 Rounds to be eligible for both the Drivers Championship and Team Championship. There will be NO DROPPED ROUNDS.

Team Championship (2 Drivers per Team)

You don't have to race in a Team, however if you choose to, you will need to have the same livery.

Please try to have one fast driver and one not so fast driver in the team, if possible.

Weekly points will be combined from both drivers.

6- Series Rules

Some additional Rules to go along with anything else already mentioned in this thread:

1- Every Race will have One Mandatory Pit-Stop.

2-  After each Round (based on Total Round Points), the following Head Start will apply for the next Round:

Top 3 = No Head Start
Everyone Else = Time Based Head Start Depending on Track

This is to try and keep things close and interesting for everyone each week.

All cars will be running at 80% power for the series. This improves the control of the car.

3- Every Race will be a RANDOM GRID with NO ROLLING STARTS.

4- There is also the possibility of Championship Point Penalties if it is deemed necessary, this will be determined by an COMS Officials in their dedicated sections.

5- Settings are forced to Traction Control Off, Stability Control Off, ABS Off. Manual or Manual with Clutch.

6- All Races will be a Forced Cockpit View.
