AOR Founder & League Admin
- Jan 12, 2014
Welcome to Season 11 of the AOR Formula Renault 2.0 Championship! Season 10 saw Rene Osterkamp finally bested, with Patrick Kessler taking the title after a very quick but also incredibly consistent season. Rene Osterkamp fell only to 2nd in the championship, with Phil Reid taking 3rd. SimRC once again were able to take the teams championship, but there was strong competition from the PSR Green team. Team AOR Orange finished 3rd.
Coming into this season, can Patrick defend his title, will Rene take back the crown or will a new challenger take the fight to the top of the table? Season 10 marked an incredible two and half years of running the Formula Renault 2.0 league, whilst season 11 will make it 4 years of running the iRacing league on AOR. It has been an incredible journey so far, so let's go out and make season 11 one to remember. (And here's hoping we can start season 1 in a new open wheel car sooner rather than later.)
Please make sure you read the info in this post, and also the driver briefing in the post below.
What day and time do events start? The race nights will begin every Friday from 19:20/19:40 UK time (BST), with qualifying commencing at 20:30 UK time (BST). The time zone will change on October 28th, so the race from 2nd of November onward will go back to GMT.
When will the season start? The first race of the season will run in the first week of the 2018 S4 iRacing season. The race calendar follows the official iRacing schedule.
What are the entry requirements? You will need to have a licence class of D Class 4.00 or above. You are free to sign up during pre-season regardless, but you will be denied entry upon the start of the season if you do not meet the requirement, in which case drivers who do meet the requirement will be given priority over you. You are also expected to be active on the forum in order to receive the latest updates. If you are completely new to the series, we will check to see if you are suitable for the league, which will be dependant on having done a sufficient amount of racing and running in the car at a reasonable pace.
How do I register as part of a team? Simply state your team preferences in this thread - the name of your team and name of the driver you're teaming up with. There will be a maximum of 2 drivers per team at any one time. Drivers can be changed during the season but this will need to be authorised by the League Coordinators.
How many spaces are available? There will be a maximum of 36 spaces, with a reserve list (maximum of 10 at one time). If all of the spaces have been allocated, the sign-up thread will be closed until a seat has been vacated.
What happens if I'm on the reserve list? All drivers on the reserve list will be approached every week by the League Coordinators who will offer you a seat in place of an absent driver. Please keep active on the forums in order to receive these messages and accept any potential invites. Members that are inactive on the forums for two weeks will be removed from the reserve list.
Can I participate in a 'one off' race? We will not be accepting one-off 'wildcard' entries for drivers who wish to dip their toe in the water. It's recommended that you get to know the car in the official iRacing series before committing to the league. Once you sign up, you are expected to participate across all 12 race nights.
How is the Championship structured? The Championship consists of 10 race nights including a Feature Race and a Sprint Race at the same circuit, and 2 race nights with just one main race, with a separate points scoring system. A total of 12 race nights overall.
Overall, there are three drop weeks permitted. There will be three drop weeks, meaning that the points score from your three worst race nights will be dropped at the completion of the season. Any bonus points scored during a drop week will still count.
Race night structure?
● 70-minute practice session
● 10-minute qualifying (maximum 3 laps allowed)
● 40-minute Feature Race (grid based on qualifying, mandatory pit-stop)
● 25-minute Sprint Race (grid reversed* based on Feature Race results)
● 50-minute practice session
● 10-minute qualifying (maximum 3 laps allowed)
● 60-minute Race (grid based on qualifying, mandatory pit-stop)
*Only drivers who finished in the top 20 in the Feature Race, and finish either on the lead lap or one lap down, will be part of the reversed order. Drivers who don't meet this requirement must still participate, but will start from the back in the positions they finished in the feature race.
More details can be found in the rules thread.
Are setups permitted? The Championship is open to setup modification.
What is the points system? Points are awarded to the top 20 finishers in the Feature Race, and the top 16 in the Sprint Race. In addition to the normal points system for finishing positions, 1 additional point is handed out for pole position (Feature Race only) and fastest lap. Additionally, 2 points will be awarded for completing the race with 0x incident points, and 1 point will be awarded for completing the race with 1x incident point. The single race format has a combined points system of the feature and sprint races, although the bonus points remain the same.
Full details on points scoring can be found in the rules thread.
Are there any recommended files to download? If you wish to create your own team livery you can find the Formula Renault 2.0 template under the "Paint" section of the iRacing website. Trading Paints is recommended to upload and show off your livery on race nights as well as making the rest of the grid look suited and booted!
Will there be any coverage of the races? For most of the recent seasons, we have had professional live broadcasts for the league produced by Global SimRacing Channel (GSRC). We hope that this will continue for this season, but it will as usual depend on whether it's possible to achieve sufficient donations from the drivers to cover the costs. Donation link can be found here.
Below is the list of drivers who have expressed an interest in competing in this league. You will need to further confirm your interest once the deadline passes in order to claim your space on the grid.
Priority will be given to drivers who took part in at least 8 rounds (full race nights) in Season 10, but there will be several spaces available beyond this. The priority deadline is set to Saturday 8th September at 20:00 UK time (BST).
After 8 rounds, the sign-ups will close and will no longer take any further applicants until the end of the season, regardless of spaces available.
Please make your entry in the following format:
Number preference - Name - Nationality - Team (if applicable) - Licence - Have you read and understood the rules?
#44 - Phil Reid - UK - Team AOR Orange - A 4.02 - I have read and understood the rules
