Season 37 – 1955 Grand Prix – Round 5 – Reims
The fifth race in the 1955 Grand Prix series finds us at Reims in France.  The circuit is basically several long straights with a couple of hairpins and a few cornfields. Catching a tow is what this track is about. It normally produces close racing. Reims-Gueux was first established in 1926 on the public roads between the small French villages of Thillois and Gueux. The circuit had two very long straights between the towns, and teams strove to maximize straight-line speed of their cars; many slipstream battles ensued. Race organizers actually felled trees and demolished old houses in order to make the circuit even quicker. International racing came with the first official Formula One event occurring in 1950, the inaugural year of the Formula One world championship. The circuit layout was shortened and changed in 1952 to bypass the town. In the 1954 race, the long-awaited Mercedes W196 with its straight-8 fuel-injection engine made its debut with Juan Manuel Fangio transferring from Maserati to join an otherwise all-German line-up of Hans Herrmann, Karl Kling and pre-war driver Hermann Lang. It was a dominant return with Fangio recording a practice lap of 124.31 mph. He and Kling led away and continued to race side by side around the Reims track. The Ferrari drivers simply couldn't cope with the pace. There was no race at Reims in 1955 and when the Grand Prix circus returned in 1956, it was without the silver arrows. Fangio dominated again but this time in a resurgent Ferrari team who's drivers also claimed the remaining podium places.

Driver lists can be found on the championship standings page

Handicapping and chassis allocation.
The 1955 Grand Prix cars will be using a token system which allows drivers to purchase any chassis of their choice for a given number of tokens as published on the championship standings page. Drivers classed as Privateers will be allocated an additional 10 tokens.  The tokens available to each driver will be published in the race announcement. See table below.

Available Tokens:
Note: These are the tokens available to each driver before the 10 tokens are added for making the race start.

Note: In the last round JonnyO's Mercedes didn't get off the line so he didn't officially start the race, consequently he didn't loose the 20 tokens he spent on the W196 SL. By the same logic he doesn't receive the 10 tokens start money. In effect JonnyO starts this race with the same number of tokens he had after Round 3.

Hi guys wont be around for a while yet. Went into hospital the day after my last race for a pretty big op. Getting better. But not quite well enough to take up my, guardian of the rear slot yet.

Take care and enjoy.  See you all soon.

Not seen anything yet....  but if JonnyO has sent some cash he's wasted his money  Grin

The simple answer is this is how the token system has always worked. For the 67F1 cars the race importer works out the cost in tokens and the start money automatically. The algorithm uses the car the driver started the race in, which effectively means crossing the start line and registering a time. Trying to do anything else would make the importer too complicated. It would have to take account of situations where a driver joins a server in the wrong car. Realises their mistake and re-joins in a different car but doesn't start the race in either car. All the 67F1 championship announcements (including Season 37) make this clear. They include the statement:
Code:
A driver must cross the start line at least once under race conditions to qualify as a starter (this is determined automatically by
GPL not by the moderating staff).  This means if a driver makes the grid he must actually cross the start line to qualify as a starter,
simply making the grid is not sufficient.  Similarly if a driver fails to make the grid but decides to start from the pit lane, he must
cross the start line at least once under race conditions to qualify as a starter.  Depending on where his pit box is in relation to the
start line, this may mean he needs to complete a full lap in order to cross the start line.  Drivers must start the race to be eligible
for the 10 tokens "start money".

I maintain the token count for the 55GP cars in a spreadsheet, simply because we wanted to be sure the cost in tokens for each chassis was set correctly before we ask our web master to go to the trouble of updating the import algorithm to cater for the 55 cars as well as the 67s.

All I have done in this case is apply the rule as it will be implemented in the importer when it is updated.

Hope this clarifies the situation.

Thanks boys. 

If I manage to get a couple of drains removed,  then I'm hoping in a few days to try to gently put myself behind the wheel and pedals for a couple of laps.
