So, I wanted to make a Survival of the Fittest challenge, but it’s getting a bit stale, so I’m giving this a go.
#Welcome to the 1995 time attack series.
This is a perfect opportunity for both garage tuners to prove themselves and get access to a motorsport directed specifically at them, as well as an opportunity for large tuner companies to promote themselves to the masses.
The rules are simple, all you need to do is chose your car, modify it so it complies with the specifications given and see what it can do on a racetrack. Each venue is one stage, each stage consists of practice, qualification and attack runs.
In practice you get unlimited tries to set the best laptime, as well as enough time to select the proper tires for the wearther conditions. No modifiers to your laptime apply (More on that later).
First 3 places on the practice leaderboard receive points.
1st = 3 points
2nd = 2 points
3rd = 1 point
This will allow us to find out which is the fastest car of all without any random chances in the mix
#2 qualification runs
Qualification runs make sure that only competetive racecars are running on the track during the main event. This is done not because of safety concerns, but for the viewers to get the best action possible. The qualification margin is 110% of the leading lap time. Modifiers will apply. Qualification will not allow you enough time to dial the car in, so you might be starting on the wrong tires for the weather. You will start on the tires you’ve chosen in your build.
First 3 places on the qualifiaction leaderboard receive points.
1st = 3 points
2nd = 2 points
3rd = 1 point
This will allow us to find out which car is the fastest in the exact conditions and on the exact track we’re on
#3 Time Attack
Every car to pass qualification makes a single lap of time attack. Full modifiers are in use, once again, you use the tires you’ve chosen in your build, the drivability will also be a factor (Once again, more on that later).
First 6 places will receive points
1st = 20 points
2nd = 16 points
3rd = 12 points
4th = 8 points
5th = 4 points
6th = 2 points
This is the full banana, with all the modifiers in place
There are a lot less variables here than in the Survival of the fittest, but they’re more flexible and unpredictable.
###1. Tire choice and weather
Sports tires work well enough in all conditions, slick tires, however will require dry tarmac. You’re free to chose any tires of these two options, but while choosing slicks remember that they will bring up to a 5% time penalty in the rain. Sports tires do not involve penalties as they are less grippy in the dry by default
The weather is decided by excel choosing a random number from 0 (completely dry) to 5 (very wet), the resulting number will set the weather for the event.
###2. Drivability factor
The harder the car to drive, the more pressure on the driver. During the Time Attack event a driver may make a mistake which will cost him anywhere from 0% to 5% penalty (decided by excel random number generator individually for each racer). Each point of drivability removes 1% chance of this happening (Yes only a 100 drivability rating will save you from this, so no, nobody is actually completely safe from it, and yes, this chance is also calculated by the random number generator in excel).
