Weekend Warrior - [DONE]



Paul is a 57 year old bussinesman with an interest in motorsports. He thinks his life is too boring right now, and wants to go racing to spice it up a little.

However, he doesn’t have the money or time to go racing, so he plans to buy a sports car to use on track days and maybe take it for a cruise on some winding roads on the weekends. Paul doesn’t have a preference for any type of car, it could be a light and nimble machine or a top speed monster with a huge engine.

Basically, build a road legal track car for a man in a mid life crisis.



  • Model year: Free, Trim year: 2020
  • Car has to be road legal: Wipers, headlights, tail lights, brake lights, indicators, mirrors and a three-way catalytic (normal or high flow) converter are required
  • Interiors: Won’t be judged
  • Dowforce: Maximum 150kg combined front and rear on the test track screen (negative downforce will be ignored)
  • Seats: Free, but there will be a penalty for having only one
  • Legacy and open wheel bodies are banned
  • Advanced settings are allowed but be sensible
  • Max price: $70,000


  • Family year: Free, Variant year: Free
  • Fuel: Unleaded of any type (penalty for 100)
  • Loudness: 60 maximum
  • No V16 engines


  • Racing parts are allowed but will have a $300 penalty for your svc per part
  • Techpool: everything at +5
  • Even though the trim year is 2020 that doesn’t mean you have to make a modern car, that rule is there to give everyone access to the same technology
  • If you have any doubts feel free to ask either in the thread or my DMs.


Performance is everything for a track car. This will take into consideration ATT lap time, acceleration(0-100km/h and 80-120km/h) and power to weight ratio.

The car should be fun to drive, there’s no point in taking a boring car to a track day.

If you go fast a bad accident is more likely to happen, so the car should be as safe as possible.

Service Costs
Track cars need constant parts replacements, if the costs are too expensive, Paul will only be able to afford a couple of track days a year.

Paul is not a professional racing driver, he needs something that’s not too hard to drive.

Paul is not that young anymore so try making the car as comfortable as possible.

It would be really annoying to lose track time because the car keeps breaking down.

While speed is the most important thing here, nobody wants to spend so much money on an ugly car.

Fuel Economy
This is a sports car that isn’t going to be driven everyday so fuel economy is not expected to be great, but the lower the better .

He doesn’t mind paying more for a better car, but the price has to be justified when compared to the competition.

  • Priorities have been rebalanced
  • Cleared race part penalty
  • SVC limit removed

This would make a great QFC or CSR, but the current rounds for both are still ongoing, so it makes sense to turn it into a standalone challenge.

What kind of penalty do you have in mind for race parts? My two cents:

I interpret…

… race intake to be unfiltered open intake runners. In states with strict emissions laws, they’re illegal even though they don’t significantly affect emissions; states with sniff-only or no testing should have no problem with them as long as total noise is within limits. They are relatively easy to swap back and forth, depending on engine layout. If not swapped for HPDE use, the engine sucks up a lot of dirt and its longevity decreases.

… race headers to be highly developed and optimized exhaust manifolds. Expensive up front but don’t really have major downsides in use. Same deal as intake regarding legality. Generally an impractical amount of work to swap for events. Do not affect reliability, don’t add much noise (in fact often lower it), but might increase service costs slightly.

… semi-slicks to be actual slicks, not street-legal like DOT-R. Don’t affect emissions even in strict states, but can lead to the car impounded if driven on the street with them. Sudden rain or puddles can make for an entertaining and hopefully not tragic day. It’s very common for HPDE cars to bring a second set of wheels with track tires on them, as they’re very easy to swap. This could be reflected in upfront and service costs.

Using race parts will give an extra $300 service cost penalty per part, also since service costs are now a 3 star priority I’m removing the $3000 limit

Submissions are now open.

Good luck and most importantly have fun.


Could you clarify what parts will qualify for the race parts penalty? Obviously anything that says race in it, but what about the various underfloor options, magnesium/carbon rims, semi-slicks, etc.? Thanks!

ETA Sorry this came after rules deliberation, I didn’t think about it now…

Is full 3d allowed?

Working on it…


Everything that has “race” in the name and semi slicks count as a race part, anything else is okay.

Yes it’s allowed, just make sure the length and overhangs are close to the body you choose.

2022 Genarro Vatiara

The entry level sports car from the italian automotive house Genarro will ensure you a pleasant driving experience on both your daily commute and the tight corners of a racetrack.

It sports a twin turbo charged 3.5L V8 producing 510hp which will definitely put a smile on your face. Weighting in at only 1455kg it’s very nimble and easy to control.

The Vatiara promises you the full Genarro experience at just $62,500



just to clear up, is this the downforce number we have to pay attention to?


or is it this one?

the first one


Yeah, new cars are all well and good, but they lack the style, the character, the essence of a classic car. And classic cars… well, they can be temperamental at the best of times.

So, what if you were to take the body of a classic 60s couple but imbue it with a more modern, more potent engine and chassis? The boffins over at Team X has the solution in the Pegasus 260CR.

It features fully revised and built springs and dampers in all four corners, racing style sports seat and upgraded entertainment package, classic aftermarket wheels with modern sports tyres and a subtle compliment of front splitter and rear spoiler to help keep the car planted to the road or racetrack. And under the long, sleek bonnet sits the beating heart from it’s 22 year younger brother, a 2.6L I6 with Twin Cams, 24 valves and 2 turbos from factory. Ready for a lead foot and some wide open roads.

If I understand correctly you’re saying both the car family and the engine family have to be named in the specified format, but the car trim and engine variant can have whatever name you want?
