Challenge Austrian Grand Prix

  • A return of crash-happy starts and the introduction of a crash-happy rF_Scan causes headaches for drivers and admin alike at Round 5 in Spain. Emanuel Gaczella takes his customary pole and Race 1 victory, while Jeremy Allen mirrors his teammate's achievement at Hungary and wins Race 2 from pole. With Ari Nieminen still absent, Gaczella is marching away with the championship.  
  • Round 4 in Hungary sees 27 post-race penalties handed out after Race 1 and a further 16 after Race 2; most are time penalties relating to drivers repeatedly exceeding the confines of the track. Original Race 1 winner Danny Asbury is demoted and the win given to Emanuel Gaczella. Patrick Fogel wins Race 2 from pole. The new launch control sees a considerable improvement to the race starts, though overall attrition is still high. Gaczella suffers a relatively-scruffy round; despite inheriting the Race 1 win, he is demoted in Race 2; however, as the only top-3 driver present, Gaczella extends his lead in the championship considerably.  
  • In light of controversy surrounding startline accidents, the GPVWC introduces new regulations dictating the mandatory use of launch control at race starts. Further changes include the introduction of a randomised starting order for the first 15-20 cars in race two.  
  • Round 3 in Austria, and fears of a huge and embarrassing accident at the first corner are thankfully allayed, when the huge and embarrassing accident instead happens on the start line. Again. Oscar Hardwick proves the surprise package, in the inaptly-named BackMarker Brigade, dominating qualifying and the first race. A disastrous second race for Ari Nieminen sees main rival, and Race 2 winner, Emanuel Gaczella shoot into the lead of the championship by 23 points. Top 3 drivers now 40 points clear of the rest of the field.  
  • The 2013 Formula Challenge mod is revealed to be based on Formula 2 and both the trackpack and mod are now available via simsync.
