Handicapping
We will use the tokens system again this season. The tokens system used with the 67F1 cars is actually a chassis levelling system, not a form of handicapping. So to introduce a form of handicapping into the 1955 Grand Prix series, drivers who are classed as "Amateurs" will be given additional tokens.  This will take the form of 10 additional tokens at the start of the season.  However an "Amateur" driver who fails to start any of the first 5 races will only be eligible for an additional allocation of 5 tokens (rather than 10).  "Amateur" status will be declared by the divisional moderator at the start of the season.

There is no red zone for this championship. Drivers are reminded that Lap 1 incidents do carry an extra 1 place penalty.

The races will be run under Pro rules so no shift-Rs are allowed.

Only reported incidents will be moderated.

If you would like to enter this series please submit an entry in the poll.

Suppose I can always start with the Gordini at Dundrod to put a few Thornton Dollars in the kitty.  Roll Eyes

You might be able to re-write history too Clive. Nobody drove the Gordini in the actual race in 1955.  There is a Pathe News Reel of the event here which is very interesting but highlights the primitive safety standards at the time. I haven't worked out how many laps we can squeeze in for a 50 minute race but it won't be anything like the 84 laps of the real event!

That was a sports car race but still interesting.  The drivers used to race anything with wheels on back then.

Try typing Loynes into the search window.  ;-)  That was '58 but nearly as old!

You are right it is, but the track is period and the 300SLR is bored out version of a W196 with lights on so it should be an interesting challenge.

On on any track too. Walls, trees and telegraph poles didn't put them off   eek

I've found a dusty Connaught at the back of my garage at Zandvoort.  Says "mb connaught55".  Any idea where that came from?

DON'T TOUCH THAT CAR!!!!

It belongs to HER   shifty. and was parked in the wrong garage by incompetent mechanics ( there are a couple of likely suspects) in preparation for a return of the Mighty Wazas in season 34.

The "mbConnaught55" is a specially prepared car for the forthcoming season utilising Waza technology, you will not be able to handle its awesome power.  Grin

If you discover an oddly named Gordini....don't touch that either!!!

Evil Waza, now a completely reformed character!

Hope you enjoy it Alessandro.  Phil has taken it easy on people this season and avoided the brake management challenges of Aintree and Monaco.

LOL  I quite like it.  It is becoming my favourite.

Must look in the other garages to see if I can find the Gordini.   Grin

In my opinion 10 point for the amateurs are to few.The faster cars are expensive.Is not possible to encrease?

I don't think that the points system is intended to even out driver ability.  Tim has demonstrated by his past performances, at Spa in a Gordini, that this just isn't possible.

The Pro and Amateur competitions are completely separate but just happen to be on the track at the same time.

Maybe, but with my few laps with F1 55 seems that it's most important the brake management instead of speed
rather in a past season the impression for me was that Tokens are too many because was not too difficult to use performance cars specially for fast drivers, so few tokens forces to use slow cars

Agreed. 

But allowing the Ams faster cars will just mix them with the Pros more.
