Hello All,

Codemasters' F1 2013 Game was released over 5 years ago now, but is still an appraised and popular game in the franchise, with many people having fond memories of casual play and even racing back in the ARL/AOR main leagues of Season 7, 8 and 10. I am happy to announce that AOR is looking into a possibility to continue the game's legacy, with the Apex Online Racing Retro Codemasters F1 Game League.

This will not replace or compete with the main AOR Hype Energy F1 Game Leagues
, with races likely to run weekly on either Monday, Tuesday or Thursday depending on what we deem optimal for drivers, co-ordinators and potentially streamers. Being an old-gen game, running the league through Steam on PC seems the most sensible option.

To ensure a high driving standard, a modified version of the main AOR Hype Energy F1 League rule set will be employed (as seen here), as well as the standard stewards panel procedures.
The calendar is currently undecided, but we're looking for what works for the first time dipping our toes in the water - please feel free to suggest the number of rounds you'd like to see. The league getting up and running is decided by the interest from you, the community. Hopefully this thread can culminate an accurate representation of popularity and numbers for the season to see whether this league is worth pursuing to creating a sign-up thread in future.

NOTE: F1 2013 is not available on the steam store presently. This means obtaining the game for people who don't have it on Steam already is pretty difficult. As F1 2012 is a more accessible game, we are making a decision between running the league on either game based on their popularity. On the reply template, you can clarify which games you can drive on and this will decide what game the league is ran on.
PROVISIONAL DETAILS:
Game: F1 2013 (/F1 2012) by Codemasters
Platform: PC (Steam)
Race Time: 20:00 British Time (GMT/BST)
Race Day: TBD (Mon/Tue/Thur)
Calendar: TBD (≈10 races? + pre-season social races)
Allowed Assists: TBD
Qualifying: Short Qualifying
Race Length: 50%
Weather: Dynamic
Parc Ferme: On
Car Performance: Equal (2013 Cars)
Any other details will be finalised before a sign-up thread is released

If you have any interest in competing, please comment below in the format:

Gamertag/Steam ID: [Insert Personal Gamertag Here]
Would you compete in a league season on F1 2013 or F1 2012? [F1 2013/F1 2012/Both]
Which of the following days can you attend? [Include all applicable: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday]
Which assists would you run? [List assists]
Other Requests/Comments: [Anything about the dates/platform or general requests and questions about the league]

(Remember, this is not yet full sign-ups for the season, just a gauge for potential interest.)


Finally, if we could ask you to share this thread to people you think that might be interested. We want to engage with as many people who want to play F1 2013, as possible. We do aim to have this league broadcasted on the AOR channel and to do that we need commentators. Please DM myself if you're interested in commentating. Previous experience etc is required. Get sharing! we look forward to seeing the response to this interest thread, from the community. :)

Which of the following days can you attend? Tuesday
Which assists would you run? RL
Other Requests/Comments: Can only really do Tuesday as club cycling season starts end March and Mondays & Thursdays are regular 18:30 onwards. Malaysia, Korea and India (cutfest) have to be included. In response to @Julio Massa 5522 I do have the DLC, but not everyone does; AFAIK you have to have it to race in a lobby set with it.

Which of the following days can you attend? As far as I'm aware Monday = Tuesday = Thursday
Which assists would you run? None
Other Requests/Comments: If we used F1 2013, I'd love to use the additional classic tracks. On a personal note, I'd happily coordinate the league if there's enough interest and if possible, I may commentate instead of racing, of course if it's possible to make such an arrangement for me to return to my, let's be honest, favourite role.

Potentially interested, but my wheel (G29) doesn't work properly on f1 2013 (hence why I stopped the 1999 mod videos). And unfortunately I'm useless with a pad
