This is currently a kind of draft until submissions open. This will be my first challenge I’ll ever have hosted, so let me know if I should include anything else, or if I can help clarify anything.
The regulations require the use of unleaded fuels - so which types are we allowed to use? 95 and 98 RON unleaded would be most likely.
Because the V class production cars are supposed to be standard engines, they’ll likely run either regular or premium. For anything else, use whatever fuel you’d like that you think your team can afford. Just have fun designing a bit of a racing team.
I do want to address some commonly asked questions though, and clear some things up.
The trim year for your car and the engine variant for your car should be as modern as possible for your team. This serves as a "last refurbished in" date, and puts modern technology in your car and engine. You don't want to be running this race with semi-slick tires from the 1980's.
In the SP (Special), H (Historic) and CUP category, you can completely replace the material of the panels and the chassis from the 'road car'. Just keep in mind your team has to have the budget to do so.
Fuel efficiency will be mostly determined by how efficient your engine is in the top 25% of it's RPM range.
(Ex: 8000 RPM, efficiency between 6000 and 8000 RPM.)
Alright, good luck everybody, and have fun.
2020 Alba Project GT - Mk2

I think you still got something wrong with the historic groups. According to the official 2020 regulations the possible groups are:
- H2 is up to and including 2000cc - Manta is H2 (2.0 engine, originally 1.8)
- H4 is over 2000 cc up to 6250 cc (you called that one H2 in the OP) - Porsche 964 is H4
Turbos are considered with a turbo factor of 1.7 (multiply cc by 1.7 to get the capacity determining the group)
Cars for the historic classes must be from 2009 or earlier.
Please allow both H2 and H4 - I have a car available for H2 without needing much extra work
You are completely correct, but here’s a few things as to why I’m doing it this way.
The year cutoff moving up one year is probably just because of the 2019 series regulations and the 2020 series regulations. In general, it’s a 12 year cutoff. Either way, it’s not the biggest detail of this competition.
Thanks for the turbo capacity multiplier, I was struggling to find that information on my own. Since we’re now in the competition with some people already submitted, I’ll leave it as is. I haven’t seen anybody doing anything too over the top.
H2 is a catch all at the moment for any car in the Historical category. If need be, and we start seeing widely varying performance levels and looks in the Historic class, I’ll make the call to split them into H2 and H4. But yes, both are available.
added the drivers because apparently other people are doing that
Hirochi Prasu GT3
#90 Hirochi-Hatzenbach Racing
2020 Marks the year of Hirochi’s return to motorsports. The base for the new GT3-spec car was the just-released Hirochi Prasu GT, of which was a collab with Gearhouse Studios. The car was developed alongside its road-going cousin and was finished just in time for the 2020 VLN SP9 class debut. It wears the historic Fujisaki livery last seen on the iconic 1997 JGTC GT500 Prasu
because the designers at gearhouse are being lazy again, and is a favourite amonst many fans. The car is prepared and raced by Hatzenbach Racing located just next to the world-famous and expensive toll road, who used to race GT4-spec Hirochi SBR4s.

Am I reading this wrong or is aesthetics most important and pace least important?

2020 Delta Tantra X
#404 SCH Racing
Delta, an Austria-based motorcycle manufacturer created the original Tantra to be a somewhat affordable track car. After adapting the Tantra to a GT4 specification, SCH purchased a GT4 and standard road going model, and began their work to make a overhauled version.
Much of the underlying suspension, interior, and rear clamshell were pulled from the GT4, and placed into the normal Tantra chassis, creating a unique shape, unseen by any Tantra before. Inside, an inhouse SCH built 3L Twin Turbo V8 was fit in place of the normal 2L Inline 4.

2 Hirochis made by 2 different people…
Not complaining, just feeling a bit weird.

This marks their 2020 Retro replica of the 2008 JGTC Tengai Fuji. The team simplified many components and created a custom carbon fiber chassis with latest 2020 technology from Suisei itself. The team is sponsored by Suisei Automotive Racing Team, the offical racing team, supplying official credited parts. This year the car is bearing the characters from the anime series, Girls Und Panzer as they gain a sponsorship for they upcoming Part III movie Das Finale as well as the manga series, Girls & Panzer - Ribbon no Musha.
