I asked myself: Why don’t we have a racing series that passes continuously through the years, whose rules are always up to technical and political developements to be very realistic (prepare for hot muscles in the late 60s, turbos in the 80s, and so on)?
Here it is, the ATC should become a championship that is funny and interessing for everyone, with unique rules and even cooler cars to take part.
** GENERAL RULES**
The cars have to be road-legal vehicles. That means they need lights, handles, at least minimum required cooling, and so on.
The body of that car should fit the season. It is not meant to be too strict, but please do not submit an early 40s design in 1965. A good orientaion is that the body should be able to choose in the last 10 years. The shape is not required. The aim is to have a great diversity of cars on the road. Engine position is normally not required, but maybe the size the engine has to have to match the rules excludes the one or other layout.
I guess DOHC is the common type of engine, you can hit fourteen times the quality slider, seven times for the engine and seven times for the rest consisting of suspension, brakes etc. Make sure you do not use it more than five times each category. A category is for exampe brakes or tires. It is possible to hit once +5 (e.g. fuel system to reach lower octane and tires if you otherwise can’t get rid of wheelspin) and give the rest the two points remaining.
An exception is for the type of engines.
The car must not be newer than the first year of the season. You can not take part with an 1961 car in the season 1960/1961. But you can take part with a 1958 car - if you want to and if it fits the 1960 rules.
As motor racing is a very dangerous thing, your cars need the ADVANCED SAFETY. For the same reason, NEGATIVE SLIDERS are allowed everywhere except interior and safety.

HOW THE RACES WORK
Each season has a duration of two years, so the first one is 1956/1957. The following will be 1958/1959 and so on. There will be driven three races per year, so 6 per season. Calendar is already in planning.
I am inspired by the Hot Lap Challenge, so I do it the most simple and easy way. I will let each car race one lap on every track. The fastest wins.
The six tracks have to be different. Both small, frisky and dull but strong-engined cars should have their chances. The racemaster has to keep that in mind.
My questions are:
How do you like that idea?
Do you have any suggestions what can maybe improved?
DO YOU TAKE PART?
SUBMISSIONS FOR THE FIRST SEASON will be accepted until 31.08.2016
