The Automation Compact Car Championship | Race 4, Sepang International Circuit + Final results!


#1

Welcome to the Automation Compact Car Championship!

The Automation Compact Car Championship is a fictional series based on the one from Gran Turismo. Focused on small cars and compacts, this series consists of 4 races in different locations all around the world.

Car makers can modify and promote their smallest models in this championship!


The calculations:

Every car will run a number of laps each race. A random number will be generated every quarter of lap, meaning four random numbers will be generated per lap; if the number is higher than the car’s drivability divided by 100, the driver will have made a mistake, and the magnitude of the mistake, determined by a random number between 0.001 and 0.500, will be the number of seconds the driver has lost.

The formula is as it follows:

LAP TIME = RAW LAP TIME + (DRIVER MISTAKES*THEIR MAGNITUDES)


How the results will be punctuated:

1st place: 10 points.
2nd place: 8 points.
3rd place: 6 points.
4th place: 4 points.
5th place: 2 points.
6th place: 1 point.
From 7th place to last: 0 points.

Changes in the rules:

The two seats must no longer be sports ones.
Added minimum safety rule.
Added minimum overall reliability.


#2

Some balancing issues:

= not a whole lot of budget to play with, since sports interiors in the 10s are very expensive (think an extra 3 grand). Sports seats are for prestige applications.

Also, do you want to specify either a minimum weight or a minimum safety? That would probably be far fairer than simply specifying “standard 10s” safety. If not, do any special restrictions apply to tech sliders on the safety, or will everybody be pretty much submitting standard 10s -2 tech?


#3

Gotcha! Changed these rules, I hope the designing phase is more balanced now.


#4

There’ll probably be more questions, I already had a couple more lol.

  • Any restrictions on tyre type and also tech (frequently we’re locked to a single spec)
  • Must we continue to use standard safety or just shoot for a score of 38 minimum?
  • Is that reliability value for the engine or combined
  • Any restrictions on ventilation i.e. must we at least meet minimum engine cooling requirements or just to hit a score of 55 will do?
  • Are there any restrictions on total slider points in the trim and chassis sections?

#5

-Tyre type and tech is open in this case.
-You must still continue using standard safety and, at the same time, shoot for the 38 score minimum.
-The reliability value is for the engine (will edit it, thanks for pointing it out!)
-Ventilation is unrestricted.
-There’s no limitation in total slider points in trim and chassis.


#6

If ventilation is unrestricted, then we’ll need a total reliability value to shoot for too, otherwise we’d just aim for 55 in the engine tab and cut the ventilation to minimum possible to run the car. That’s probably not something you want happening!


#7

Gotcha! Looks like I should’ve polished the idea a little bit more, but hopefully it is ready to go now. ^^U


#8

I don’t think carbon-ceramic brakes will be allowed in this series. They’re too expensive for a compact car anyway…


#10

Some suggentions:

This sould be under Stock car regulations

There is no rule that race car must be a trim of stock car. That’s quite a big rule hole to discver :slight_smile:

Why no I6?

Will there be standing start lap times or flying lap?

How about every third? Like every sector…it becomes more RL or comment friendly .

I’ll most likely join :slight_smile:

EDIT: Kee engine?

EDIT2: Are you sure all the bodies are allowed? And all the shapes? Maybe stock car must have 4+ seats?

EDIT3: my first prototype is doing sub 2.16 on ATT


#11

Also is there a capacity limit on engines? An overall limit or specific limits for certain engine types ?

Edit: Is there a noise limit or restriction to using cooling flaps or active wings.


#12

Going to pry here. What’s your top speed? I’m a few seconds behind you.


#13

If there is power to weight limit I don’t see and need for extra limitations.

Around 290-300 km/h (180mph)


#14

Lap times will be standing start. It will be done in Kee engine. Stock car doesn’t have to have 4 seats.


#15

I may have something in the works that can be tweaked for it. Just me filling out the Dynamite Motors car list a bit, but… Well, I’m willing to show a picture of it.

(Still a work in progress on styling)


This is the Dynamite O6, their first attempt in years to make a budget ‘sports’ car. Don’t let the ugly looks fool you, though, because it will be quick. Hopefully.


#16

100% want to submit a lore car to this, but being lightweight and FF is going to really hurt it on high speed tracks.

Could still do it for shits and giggles.


#17

same… maybe we can race in the compact class? :smiley:


#18

Does the race car engine have to be in the same family as the stock car? Or can we engineer an entirely different engine specifically for the race car?


#19

You are allowed to engineer a different engine.


#20

Will we have to make one car with two separate trims? Will the stock car race too? This challenge is too confusing


#21

One car with two separate trims, yes. (Stock and race)
