IRL Nations Cup – Details Announcement

It’s the end of a long season, and equally a long game. Three seasons on F1 2019 has seen multiple first-time champions, and a number of championships retained.

Now we have one final event to celebrate a successful season, but also have some fun with some casual competition.

The event details are listed below and now announced are the team allocations.

The cars have been pre-designed, and drivers will be asked to design a car to match the livery to keep consistent across the team. Team have been created as fairly as possible to includes drivers for F1, F2 and F3 in each team.

There will be two semi-finals on Monday and Tuesday, and on Wednesday will be the final, which will be competed by the top five performing teams from the two semi finals. This will be the top 2 from each night plus the highest point scoring ‘lucky losers’ who will make up the 5th and final team for Wednesdays final.

RULES AND FORMAT

  • We will use the ‘multiplayer car’, and the designs for each team will be standard so that they are easily distinguishable on the live-stream of the race. These will be designed pre-event and posted on social media. they can then be replicated by the teams before the event begins.
  • The evening will consist of three races at a 25% distance, the tracks will NOT be announced ahead of time, and instead will be randomly drawn on stream by the commentary team – This negates any advantage of practice, and makes it equal for all.
  • The first race will see a ONE SHOT qualifying – This event will all be about maximising opportunity, so a one shot lap will offer you the chance at perhaps out-qualifying a driver in a league higher, or perhaps locking out a 1-2-3 with your team if all achieve perfect laps.
  • We will run with usual IRL lobby settings – Dynamic weather, Strict rules, Parc Firme ON, Assists Allowed, Damage FULL.
  • However it will be STOCK SET-UPS on the cars
  • Once the first race has been completed, the points will be tallied, and the standings announced on both the stream and Twitter @InvictusRL, the lobby will then continue to race two where the grid will be reversed from the results from race one (Including DNF’s) – DNF’S and DSQ’s start at back of field.
  • The reverse grid will then compete race two, and upon completion of race two the same tallying/announcement will continue whilst the grid for the final race was completed. This grid will be decided by nations standing order – This means if Team Netherlands are in the lead after two races, they will start 18th,19th and 20th whilst the nation at the bottom will lock out the top two/three places. This is to promote overtaking, excitement and equally make drivers work hard to represent their nation.
  • The points used will be different to standard IRL as every driver will be eligible to score – This promotes continuing racing, and not retiring as points will be crucial come the final race.

2nd – 22

3rd – 20

  • Points will also be added for the fastest lap (inside top 10), and equally a bonus three points to a team if they manage to score a double podium and five points if they lock out the podium.
  • Points will be awarded to drivers and teams collectively, and although the event is a teamwork based event and drivers are representing their nation, we will have a Nations Cup MVP, along with the Nations Cup Champions.
  • Stewards will be available on the night, and for incidents on stream (or replayed back to them between races) – They can penalise. However, penalties will come in the form of points deductions for the team as a whole to keep drivers from acting in an unsportsmanlike manner.
  • Major incident – 5pt deduction
  • Medium incident – 3pt deduction
  • Minor incident – 1pt deduction
  • Once the event has been completed, the points will be scored and the winning team announced, they will then be invited into the commentary box for an interview and wrap up, and invited back to retain their title in 2021 – We will then complete the stream, and equally end our time as a league on F1 2019.
