The Organizzazione del Corso di Fruinia cordially invites all manufacturers and private persons to register for competition!
Rallegrati tutti! For we have conquered the dark days of the war and a new dawn of creativity has taken charge of our car industry. What better forum to demostrare what your cars can do than a trip across the sometimes beautiful and the sometimes lacking roads of rural Fruinia.
We welcome everyone to enter - and every our amici dall’America have voiced their interests so far - our Corso di Fruinia. Whether production car, race car or shed-built custom vehicle, you may compete.
We only require that your car has working headlights, taillights and indicators. Safety is fully your own responsabilità. We highly recommend making a macchina that is both sturdy and reliable.
Entrants will all compete against each other but also be categorized into cinque categorie:
- below (and including) 799cc
- 800cc to 1399cc
- 1400cc to 2199cc
- 2200cc to 3299cc
- above (and including) 3300cc
Manufacturers may enter a vehicle in each category. There will be a manufacturers title as well.
We also value a measure of socialismo here in Fruinia, for that reason a points system will be used to give an advantage for the cheapest car - l’auto del popolo - achieving the best time.
Buona fortuna e viaggi magnificetici!
So that translate to:
Any car produced up to and including 1952 is allowed (all workshop mods allowed).
Every user is allowed but in no way required to enter a vehicle in every engine size category.
I will drive every car on BeamNG on 3 time trials with mixed surface, to simulate dodgy early 50s road conditions. These will be the three stages of the competition. I will drive every car once on each track (although I’ll drive it beforehand on other maps to get familiar with it). I will do my utmost best and will drive carefully yet fast, but if I spin out, you lose time. If I crash and cannot continue, you DNF.
While I believe a good and realistically built and tuned car in Automation is a good car in BeamNG, I will foresee a bonus for cars with good (better than average) drivability in Automation that end up driving badly in BeamNG (if the person - on their word of honour) declares not to own BeamNG. The size of this bonus will be determined on the basis of all the times, but proportionate to how high the drivability is over average.
There are no restrictions on the vehicle in Automation apart from production date before and including 1952, but there are some safeguards (see below).
Reliability will play a roll as each of the stage times will be subject to three random rolls based on your reliability to simulate mechanical breakdowns. These add time to your stage time. Here it might also play a role if you remove all seats except one. The car might be lighter, but you cannot take a navigator. That navigator might be useful to help in case of negative breakdowns. Cars without place for navigator will take twice as long to repair.
To counter quality spam, the total price of your vehicle will be compared against the average on a 0/100 points system. The total time will be compared to average as well and equally translated to a 0/100 scoring system. There will be two winners. The one purely in time, and the one in terms of those two quotations added up. This counts both for the overall winners, as well as the winners per category.
Lore and realistic vehicles (production, race spec/stripped) with background story are heavily encouraged.
