2021 Yaname Electronics Super Formula - SIGN UP

Post by Dom_Wings »

Image

Super Formula is back!
Valtteri Bottas took home the 2020 title in a star-studded season which only saw reigning champion Naoki Yamamoto finish as the only Japanese driver in the top 7 of the championship. With Bottas moving to F1 with the Toyota factory team, it is all but certain that Super Formula will see a different champion than in the previous season.

TEAM CHANGES
North Star has left their partnership with Kondo Racing after an unsuccessful season. Right now there are no other changes, however:
Team Mugen can enter into a partnership with Team Goh at a gain of 2 CP for this season, however Team Goh will then split to make its own team for the 2022 season.
Team LeMans can enter into a partnership with ROOKIE Racing at a gain of 1.5 CP for this season, pending ROOKIE taking over the team for 2022.

RULE CHANGES
Perhaps the biggest change to this series will include a temporary driver bonus based on the circuit. As we know, some drivers are better on one track than another, and this will be implemented with an increase in the raw pace and qualifying stats for that race. I still haven't thought it out completely, but one thing I can tell you is, if Kamui Kobayashi returns for another season, he will get increased stats for Okayama.

Any Thai and Malaysian drivers will get dramatically increased stats for their respective home tracks. You are allowed to enter them for their home races only, as long as you abide by the rule below.

In addition, to help Japanese talent get more racing experience, the JAF are also enacting a rule where every two-car team must field at least one Japanese driver. The exceptions to that will be KCMG, which in addition is allowed to field a Hong Kong driver.

CALENDAR CHANGES
The calendar expands to 10 races, with Suzuka East returning to the championship for the first time since 2002, with drivers getting the same stat bonus as for the normal Suzuka layout. Fuji Speedway will get a second race.

TEAMS
Each team has 2 cars unless specified.
Red Bull Mugen Team Goh - Aislabie
Team TOM'S - Dom
P.mu/cerumo INGING - Dexter249
Team Impul - Petoli
Team Dandelion Racing - novitopoli
Team LeMans - Shawn040217
Bentley Team Kahama - Klon
Team KCMG - Getz
Kondo Racing - Pilot
Nakajima Racing - Wazzle
B-MAX Racing with Motopark - Pinkd56
MarchSixteen with ThreeBond - Hermann95
Autobacs Racing Team Aguri - Kinnikuniverse (1 car)

Waiting list:

CAR REGULATIONS
No changes here - the Dallara SF19 will be used in 2021. Toyota and Honda will remain as engine suppliers and Yokohama will remain as the sole tyre supplier. As of now, the differences between those two will only be cosmetic.

SEASON CALENDAR
TBA (10 races)

POINTS SYSTEM
Qualifying: 3-2-1 points for the top 3
Race: 20-15-11-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 points for the top 10

CAR POINTS SYSTEM
The CP will change at the end of every season, according to the teams' championship as follows:
1st: 12 CP
2nd: 11 CP
3rd-4th: 10 CP
5th: 9 CP
6th-7th: 8 CP
8th-9th: 7 CP
10th-11th: 6 CP
12th and below: 5 CP
-------
Grand Chelem: 1 CP
Hat-trick: 0.5 CP
BONUS: Teams will earn an extra 1 CP for each driver from their Development Program (1 driver = 1 CP, 2 drivers = 2 CP) + extra 1 CP for one of the drivers under the age of 23.

You can also gain CP by selecting certain sponsors and signing certain drivers.
New teams get 6 CP by default (for 2 cars).

NEW: If you downsize to one car, you will earn an extra 1.5 CP. On the other hand, if you expand to two cars, you will lose 1.5 CP.

As there is seemingly no more interest as of right now, sign-ups are open for everyone.

We'll be fine. It's Canon, non Kodak.

I'll take over Drago Corse with ThreeBond. They'll run under the name MarchSixteen with ThreeBond with immediate effect.
Please also note the wish to expand to two cars.
