NationStates World Grand Prix Championship 7 - SIGNUPS
(NS WGPC 7, brought to you by Liventia Airways!)
Based off what I've seen from here (http://forums.jolt.co.uk/showthread.php?t=586084), there seems to be quite some support for the return of the World Grand Prix Championship.
As I have the scorinator that I used in F1GP 4 and Cas used for WGPC 5 and prior to that, and which Bos and Oli used for the incomplete WGPC6, I think it's time for the WGPC's return.
Each nation may sign up ONE team of TWO drivers and ONE backup, as well as up to TWO tracks each (although ultimately most nations will only get one GP, so please indicate which is your main track).
Each team gets 20 points to distribute in aerodynamics, cornering and reliability. The maximum in any one category is 10. Then, your drivers. The first should, in theory, be the better one, and will therefore recieve a minor bonus. Now, each driver gets a bonus point to one of the three stats. So one could be driving a car that's 8-7-6 and the other could be driving a car that's 7-7-7. If you miss that, you don't get to go back and add it in once we start.
This is how a team sign up should look.
TEAM NAME (NATION)
DRIVER 1 (bonus category)
DRIVER 2 (bonus category)
You may also wish to include an IC designation for your car (MP4-24, as a RL example)
Strictly no puppet teams at this point, but we'll see how it goes. You MAY however submit ONE track from a puppet .
To submit a track for a race, you need:
The name of the circuit, a track map, and a fastest lap time would be nice to have. Please, where possible, indicate the LENGTH (km/miles) of one lap.
You may submit ovals, but only as a secondary track and not as a primary one. We will only use ovals if there's a shortage of tracks.
I'm aiming for 10-15 teams and about 25-30 tracks (only 15-20 of which will actually be used).
If any of the above is confusing, please ask below.

(OOC: Pretty much the same one as last year; why change it when it is an OK introduction?)
Van Luxemburg, as a Number 1 Motorsport nation, welcomes Formula One with open arms to it’s nation, and would gladly host two races for the season. Our rich history in automobile racing will certainly come in handy as NSF1 visits Van Luxemburg and can taste the great motoring atmosphere.
As in the year before, Monteluci would like to offer several Duca's to the Formula One Organization, for use as safety car and medical vehicle. Because F1 is somewhat more demanding than regular road use, the vehicle has been modified electronically wise to make the standard atmospheric 4.2 litre V8 deliver 413 HP, and modified the exhaust systems, aswell as increased the engine size to 4.7 litres and some other minor adjustments, to provide an additional 77 HP; making 490 HP.
Monteluci expects that the car, which can do 310 km/h in the 400 HP SFS version, has a top speed of about 325 km/h, while the acceleration can take place in 4.5 seconds. For safety reasons, the Duca has been equipped with permanent ‘smart’ 4-wheel drive, distributing power to all four wheels. Furthermore, the SFS has been equipped with a LED lightbar, colour orange, which has an exceptionally high light output. LED strobes have also been mounted in the grille and rear bumper of the car, as well as the blinkers, that have been modified to serve as strobe lights. The Duca is also equipped with a radio system that allows the driver or passenger to contact the F1 organisation or other instances on the course. The system can also contact Van Luxemburgian Emergency Services via the standard Van Luxemburgian network. The medical car will be equipped with a regular medical kit, as well as an AED for emergency situations. It has been equipped with the same lighting solution as the Safety Car, although blue strobe lights have also been added in for road use in Van Luxemburg, in case the vehicle needs to leave the track during an emergency situation.
Entry: Monteluci F1
Monteluci is a company with a long racing history. It was founded by the Monteluci Family, most notably Gilberto Monteluci. In 1907, Gilberto built his first car, the Pangea. Quickly followed by multiple, more powerful models, Monteluci soon joined the top by winning several races since their entry into racing in 1913. His cars were the absolute benchmark in both luxury and speed, while also offering unparalleled driving dynamics. Gilberto was a frequent guest in all kinds of races around the world, especially when his cars participated. In 1934, he built the truly magical Tipo 188, which quickly conquered the racing world and lead the world’s most prestigious drivers to the finish in agonizing races of skill and tactics. The Tipo 188 was constantly improved to remain the world benchmark, and the vehicle remained top-notch until 1940, when the racing leagues were halted to favour the Second World War. During the war, Monteluci mainly constructed trucks and other light vehicles, to fulfil the large orders made by the national Armed Forces. During the war, Gilberto Monteluci died, 63 years of age, due to a fatal accident in the Monteluci factory in Venezia (Venice). After the war, Monteluci had to restart production of automobiles, since their pre-war vehicles were considered outdated by the new direttore generale, Battisto Monteluci, and he immediately ordered the development of new automobiles, which included a new Formula 1 car. Once again, Monteluci reigned the tracks and roads. However, interest in their road-legal automobiles was fading; Vehicles were too expensive and couldn’t compete with the cheaper VLT’s, a nationalised company established in 1946. Due to this, Monteluci relocated funds from their Formula 1 team to their road-legal department, which caused the achievements of the F1 team to slowly degrade, after a few seasons, the Monteluci F1 team was no more than a mediocre racing team, a shadow of what it used to be. The second blow came in 1973, when the oil crisis struck the Monteluci road-legal cars aswell; sales were reduced to a minimum. Through the next years, Monteluci slowly went downhill, upgrading and facelifting the 1973 models due to a lack of money. In 1995, the last update for the Tipo G came, a model which showed slight differences to the previous models, but still building on the same 70’s technologies. In 2007, the Direttore Generale of Monteluci sold the brand to VLT, becoming the manager for the next 5 years. After having run in the last season of NSF1, which was little successful and blamed on a ‘starting team’, Monteluci Squadra Forze Sportive F1 is back with a new car, the RF13, and a team that trained round the clock to improve it’s potential. With the new RF13 and the now well-trained team, they hope to achieve a top position in the F1 world.

The Pista di Moiano (as it is abbreviated to from the official name, or sometimes called only ‘Moiano’) was originally a private track built by Gilberto Monteluci in 1909 to test his various race cars and automobiles. As the time progressed and Monteluci grew larger and became more and more infamous for it’s racing achievements, the Moiano grounds expanded until it spanned a staggering 300 hectares of proving grounds in 1946. However, the downfall of the Monteluci brand after the second world war caused the track to fall into disrepair, with large cracks appearing in the banked track in the late 1970’s. When the Motorway Police Driving School moved away from Moiano and Monteluci lost it’s subsidy for the upkeep of the track, it became even worse. Roads in large parts of the grounds, laying in forested areas, were covered over by all kinds of plants, causing the surface to be undriveable. With the VLT takeover, this all turned around. The Autodromo was lovingly restored and modernised, and parts of the track renovated so races could take place in the future. This future is now, and the Autodromo Nazionale Motorsport is open to the F1 season of 2008, being the home of Monteluci SFS F1, and hopefully host to one of the races in the season.
(OOC: If necessary, I can submit the good old Kreuzbadinsel Street track:
Kreuzbad Street Course, Kreuzbadinsel (High-Res, again) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b76/VanLuxemburg/KITrack1.png)
Length: 20.2 Km
Lap Record: 7:56:88 (Driven with V6-powered touring cars, may not represent F1 times)
Maximum Spectators: Variable, mostly around the 100,000 mark.
The Kreuzbad Street course was originally set up for touring car races, but can also be used for Formula 1 racing. The drivers race straight through the streets of the scenic city of Kreuzbad, the capital of the Kreuzbadinsel Colony. Inbetween the Atlantik-Curve and the Rothschildtener Garten,, speeds of 300 kilometres an hour and upwards are possible, but the driver is required to break for Rothschildtener Garten, to prevent him or her from crashing into the city park. Other interesting corners are the Große S-Kurve, stretching across two bridges over the river Kreuz. The Leeds-Karussell is a place where the cars will have to brake hard, before steering into the hairpin. Then, the Großherzog is also an interesting place, where the cars have to steer past two sharp corners, before heading towards the wide Meer-S. The most dangerous part is most likely the Reisetschanze, where the touring car driver Christian Reiset crashed his Weiß-VLT into the scenery, a wooded area of the circuit. This is because of the small downward slope, and too much throttle means that the vehicles can possibly take off and start a short scenic fly past the trees, before crashing into one of them. Unfortunately, Christian Reiset did not survive the 1976 crash, and the Reisetschanze has been named in honour of him.
A short drive over the circuit.
One starts at Start-Finish, from where one travels across several unnamed corners, before hitting the Großcorniche corner, which leads out of Kreuzbad. Woods, with the occasional villa start to make up the scenery here, with foliage consisting off temperate plants, such as palms, olive trees, but also deciduous forest. The Luxkurve is a sharp corner that offers a scenic view of the Atlantic Ocean. From the Luxkurve to the Tal corner, the road descends into a small valley, from where the road starts climbing again, towards the Leeds-Karussell. There, the driver will have to slow down, to take a full hairpin, followed by another tight corner. Then, a very wide piece of asphalt will take us down to Enzelsberg, from where the road is relatively straight and level until the Reisetschanze. From there on, the road descends steeply, obliging the drivers to brake hard for the Schanze. Then we’ll head into the Facheler S-Kurve, which is relatively wide, although the road still descends from the top of the Enzelsberg (which is more of a hill) towards the Atlantic Ocean. Then, two sharp corners that make up the Großherzog. From there, one enters the city of Kreuzbad again andcan accelerate towards the Meer-S, which has a large and wide piece of asphalt in the middle. After the Meer-S, the car can use all of it’s acceleration to head towards the Rothschildtener Garten, past both commercial and residential construction, mainly higher buildings. The driver will then have to brake hard for the Rothschildtener Garten. From there, a short straight piece towards the Vogelsecke, named after the many birds that reside in that part of the Kreuzbad city park. Then the driver will drive from the Vogelsecke to Verstappenergrund, following a slight curve in the last part of the run. After Verstappener Grund, one will have to break for the Große S-kurve, covering two bridges across the river Kreuz. From there, the driver can finish at Start/Finish, having driven 20.2 kilometres.
Windizi Meshe Racing (RENNIDAN)
Windizi is a relatively new company to the racing world, although they have been making family and super cars for the last fifty years. Recently they’ve done their best to spread out, having their vehicles perform in rally, NASCAR, drift, Grand Prix and Formula 1 races (their motor bikes are also prominently used by Rennidanians competing in motocross and super bike races).
In F1 racing, their vehicles are known for their good speed, good steering and good reliability. There’s nothing special about the vehicles, as Rennidan would rather show that it’s their driver’s skill that gets them by, rather than who uses the bigger engines. In what could be dubbed as the WGPC6.5, hosted by Pablicosta a long time ago, Rennidan came through to show they have some skill in the area. Here's hoping that luck can strike again.

Maximum Spectators: 35,000
At first glance, or even on their first time around the track, many believe that this track can be overcome with better aerodynamics than cornering.
They usually crash and die in a brutal fire of nasty on the first corner.
1 – Burial – So called because of the number of drivers that have either met an untimely end or a very large medical bill. The long straight before it allows most drivers to hit top speed, meaning that if they don’t brake in time, their car will be taking a flying lesson very, very soon.
2 – Sleepy Man’s Corner (SMC) – This corner should be tough, but after the serious braking from Burial, it’s easy enough to take at low speed.
3 – Lanberd – So called because of a spectacular spin-out by Michael Lanberd in the early days of the track. He managed to wipe out all the other racers on this corner.
4 - Relax – So called because, after this corner, you’re out of the ‘Dire 4’, the first four corners which can be a right pain in the butt (and the ribs, the skull, the groin, etc. etc.).
5 – Understeer – So called because, after the ferocity of the ‘Dire 4’, many drivers forget they can now take it easy.
6 – Bump – It looks like a bump. What more is there to it?
7 – Oversteer – So called because, after the simplicity of Understeer and Bump, many drivers end up off the track here.
8 – Motaveli – So called because this is where Feros Motaveli flipped his car and died at the tragically young age of 19.
9 – Back Zee – So called because of how, instead of being an S-bend, looks more like a backwards ‘z’.
10 – Sweforf – So called because this is where Oliver Sweforf met his untimely end when his touring car went off the track and into the large ditch, catching fire and, eventually, exploding, showering every first aider within a hundred foot in metal debris.
11 – Uliv – So called because this is where Micah Uliv crashed and lost his hand. We still haven’t found it, by the way.
12 – Hensworth – So called because this is where Phil Hensworth managed to roll his touring car, but managed to continue the race and, eventually, won the season.
13 – Unlucky For Some – So called because it’s corner 13, and four drivers have ended up in hospital in the last year thanks to this corner.
14 – Ease – So called because this is where Harry Ease was hit by an opponents car when he staggered from his crash in a daze.
15 – Raiser – So called because of the sudden bump of elevation on the apex in this turn.
16 – Level – So called because here the track returns to even.
17 – Moyles – So called because here is where the current team manager was left paralysed from the waist down in a horrifying twelve car pile-up.
18 – Flow – So called because this is supposedly the smoothest corner to ride through on the track.
19 – Demins – So called because this is where Simon Demins totalled his car, yet walked away without a scratch. (Later turned out he had internal bleeding and he died in his sleep).
20 – Junior – So called because this is probably the easiest goddamned turn on the track. No one has died on this! BE HAPPY!
21 – Blackjack – 21st corner, blackjack… gettit? Gettit? Get—Ah, screw it.
22 – Elbow – Not because it’s shaped like an elbow, but because where Gilligan Jones lost his arm from the elbow down.
23 – Smokey – So called because of the tire smoke that often fumigates this turn. The grass around it is dead from the lack of good air.
24 – Swifty – So called because you need swift reactions to keep top speed on this little bump.
25 – Standard – So called because it’s a standard turn.
26 – And Again So called because, well, now you've got to do it all again...

Track to come if somone could make a picture of one i could describe.
Cafundéu's F1 Team:
Team Name: Globo/Velog F1

Driver 1: Bruno "Valeta" Borghi (Cafundéu): 10-7-4
Driver 2: André Luís Caconde (Cafundéu): 9-7-5

Cafundéu also wants to submit a track:
Name: Autódromo Afonso Lacraia Velog (aka Velogão)
Lap times around 1:18.750 (Romualdo Siqueira has the record: 1:18.119) - Length is 4,500m
An anticlockwise circuit, the Velogão has many curves, but most of them are high speed curves. The first curve (without numbers) is extremely dangerous, and some accidents can happen in the first lap or in other ones. The curves with numbers 5, 8 and 11 demand a good brake system, but in general, this is a short and fast circuit, with areas of overtaking opportunities (probably fewer than in other circuits).
It is located in the capital city, Cafundó do Juta, near the Lake Acarajé. It is also close to many factories, especially Canabrava Cachaça's main factory, and Velog Automobiles' factory.
Important: the probability of rain in Cafundó do Juta is very high. From January to April, it reaches 50%. From May to September, it is 20%. From October to December, it is 33%.

Taeshan, you need to decide on ONE single A-C-R for your team. Each of your drivers then gets to add one point to any of A, C or R. They can't have two different A-C-Rs.

Also nicknamed "le castor ronge".
Proposed location for the Grand Prix du Kelssek (English: Grand Prix of Kelssek).
Cornering 0.60, Aero 0.40.
Lap record 1:14.102.
Blouman, it is not a requirement to enter a track as well as a team. You can enter one in either, or one in both.
Kelssek, same thing as Taeshan, you can only have one single A-C-R across both drivers, who each then get a bonus point in any category of your choice.
Sorry, got a bit confused with the instructions and just bunged in what I did last time. Fixed.

Will post one of my two tracks when I have time
Also, will make a new car template.
Nethertopia's one and only racing team will participate in this competition. Based in Mignon, mister big spender Sam Wendell has once again been bored, as it seems. After the takeover of Candelariasian football club Marquez-Onwere and the sponsorship of the Nethertopian highest football league he's now found a hobby in possessing his own race team.
Anyway, let's get on with it. We have two drivers, who remain yet quite unknown. Extensive bio's will probably appear after the start of this competition. Yaay. We have no technical mumbo jumbo due to the fact that someone was too lazy to read through the F1 car wikipage. What we do have, is a template.
Driver one: Arie de Winter (aged 27)
Driver two: Xabier Overtoon (aged 20)
Backup driver: Alexis de Souza (aged 28)
We also have a proposed circuit. Huzzah. The green lines indicate the end of a sector and the big red line is the start/finish, as you've prolly guessed already.
The Mignon Race Circuit
Length: 5.573 km

We would like to submit a second track, to be used if necessary (this would be the Landau Institute GP rather than a 2nd Cafundéu GP):
Name: Autódromo Local Doutor Armando Paz (aka Armando Paz) - located inside the Landau Institute
Lap times around 47 seconds (Doctor Sandro Murchid has the record: 0:45.830) - Length is 3,247m
As usual with tracks located in the region close to Cafundéu and Estresse Intenso, this is an anti-clockwise circuit. It is a pretty easy one, and very enjoyable, to drive in, as the drivers will be able to be in nearly maximum speed for most part of the track. As this circuit is located inside the Landau Institute, it is indoor, so climate doesn't affect it (there is air conditioning). The only problem is that cars broken inside the track won't be removed easily. To compensate this, at least injured drivers can be assured they'll have a good assistance, as there are a lot of doctors there.

ALL SIGNUPS WILL CLOSE AT 12:00 UTC WEDNESDAY MARCH 18 (8 am EDT)
If there's a local translation of your Grand Prix name you'd like me to use (e.g. Grand Prix du Kelssek rather than Grand Prix of Kelssek), or if you'd prefer to use an adjective form (e.g. Bostopian Grand Prix rather than Grand Prix of Bostopia) please do let me know.
As a side point, qualifying for WGPC 7 will be run to the RL format as far as the scorinator allows. Currently it's set up to give 12 qualifying runs, with the best lap counting. I intend to adjust this such that the first four, next four and last four columns are each treated as Q1, Q2 and Q3 IRL.
However, with an enlarged number of drivers compared to RL (currently 30 drivers) it's likely Q1 will eliminate all the DNQs (bottom 6-12, depending on the final number of drivers) and Q2 will settle the bottom half of the starting grid, with Q3 settling the top half (compared to bottom 5-next 5-top 10 IRL).

And signups are closed. Unfortunately I'm not able to include The Candrian Empire due to an incomplete signup.
There are 15 teams this season (30 drivers); 24 will qualify for each Grand Prix.
There will be 12 races, with none of the five backup tracks used.
Each race will comprise of a qualifying day and a race day. Practice will not be scorinated, but you may RP your own teams' practice.
There will be between two and five days between each Grand Prix weekend; at most this will mean a season of 83 days (it won't actually last that long), and at the least 48 days (more likely closer to this number).
Qualifying will be conducted in three sessions. The first session will knock out six drivers (the non-qualifiers for the race). The second session will eliminate the 12 slowest cars, who will fill spots 13-24 on the grid. The final session will determine the starting order for the top 12.
Points will be awarded to the top 10 finishers for each race (or, when there are less than 10 finishers, for drivers classified in the top 10), as per follows: 18-14-11-9-6-5-4-3-2-1. Teams will also score the same number of points scored by their drivers. The driver and team with the most points at the end of the 12 races will be crowned World Drivers' and World Team Champions.
The first race weekend will be scorinated this Saturday, March 21, at 0400 UTC (qualifying) and Sunday, March 22, at 0500 UTC (race). An RP thread will be put up (together with the finalised GP race schedule) tomorrow, Thursday March 19.
Liventia, what about Car Numbers?? Just asking.
Car numbers will be allocated based on each team's average points per race from WGPC 5 and 6.
So waht does that mean for non earlier entered teams just the numbers left after that i guess.
That's right. Car numbers only matter in terms of placing in the pits.
So what would those In Fact be?
The Candrian Empire
Team Plan (A-C-R)
James KeFlinger +1 Reli
Scott LeCroix +1 Corner
both tracks + preferred track will be up in a minute; have to find the records based on previous runs and figure out which one is the preferred one (it rotates)

You've really put me in a bind, as I clearly said signups would close yesterday at 1200 UTC and made a post at 1330 saying I'm not able to include your entry as you didn't sign up in time. It's unfortunate and I would like to have seen you involved but I'm not going to go back on my word. Apologies.
Here are the averages by team for WGPC5 and 6 (this does NOT include the Pablicosta-run "WGPC7"). If you've participated in either one but are listed as being new, please inform me. New teams are listed in order of WGPC7 signup.

Reserve drivers will be given car numbers 31 onwards in order of necessity.
Due to their not being a true WDC due to WGPC6 not finishing, we feel it would be inappropriate to take car number 1.
Bostopia F1 requests that their first driver, Jack Berry have number 0, and Luke Marsh 2. We thank the authorities for their co-operation in this matter, and look forward to hearing back from them.
Um when you do the races and stuff the Taeshan can be dropped from the name.
