    I love the points system and how you get points for getting pole and the fastest lap of the race as well for leading a lap and most laps lead wish nascar did it that way as well.

    Also if it’ll be allowed can I request one more track and race to the schedule? The Japanese GP raced at the old layout Fuji Speedway Its one of only two road courses I actually like and it’s a great track that no one who plays this game even races at. I could make for an amazing race.

    Well, if I can find it, and it's any better than Suzuka Circuit, then I'll see. Thanks for the suggestion. I appreciate that people might actually enjoy my fantasy series.

    Oh no problem While Indy and F1 bore me this seems pretty cool so why not and I found the track. This is what the rack looks like in the download I can't find the a version to download of what it looks like now but I like the old configuration better anyway.

    OK, The Teams Are Here! 11 teams from the Indycar_Racing mod are set to race for the World Championship!

    Steinmann Motorsport 2018.png
    Yokka Performance are no strangers to being first over the finish line, holding their strong position at the top of the sport for the past two years. Daniel Whelan comes into this season the defending champion, winning his first championship in 2017. His teammate, Pablo Rodriguez has had even more success elsewhere, winning his two titles at Nitra Race Team and Oberhof Racing respectively. These two have created the ultimate driver pairing since 2016, running with Aston MRT as their engine supplier, and Mercedes as their manufacturer. The team are strongest on long runs, as their cars are more suited to being out on the track as long as they can, being pushed to their limit lap after lap. They are the only team to go undefeated at three circuits in the championship, in Vancouver, Phoenix, and Spielberg, the latter two being extremely helpful to be good at, with the performance gap between them and Scuderia Aston GP closing, thus spreading the title fight wide open, so it's good to be undefeated in two tracks late in the season, to get that extra edge over their competitors. Now that only spec parts are used in the championship, their two drivers will have to work harder than ever to return glory to Yokka.

    Scuderia Rossini 2018.png
    Scuderia Aston GP have seemed to spend the last decade sitting in a midfield slump. They've fought for the World Championship in the past, but only succeeded once, in 2009. Shane Slentz holds the bar as a two-time world champion, for Lockhart and Wolfhagen's Championship season. She hopes to fight Pablo Rodriguez to be the first triple World Champion. Mia Holgersen won the championship for Oberhof in 2012, and moved to Wolfhagen Racing in 2013. Both are in the final years of their contracts, so this season could be the last time you see this driver lineup in the Wolfhagen machines. This team have been on the rise performance-wise, and now look to take the title showdown to their closest rivals, Yokka Performance and Nitra Race Team.

    Panther Race Team 2018.png
    Nitra Race Team were the ultimate endurance team for a matter of years. Keyword "were". This team let their champion driver in Pablo Archer slip between their fingers, and have failed to win any title since. Rumours spread around that Rodriguez left due to a growing rivalry between himself, and the only threat for his second title year, his teammate Alex Patch. Steinmann haven't fallen too far behind, and with the equal performance, their last chances may still be slipping.

    Mersault Sport 2018.png
    Mersault Sport are former champions with Kyle Bettel, but like Steinmann, let their championship season driver slip. Signing Pascal Becker was a good decision from the executives for 2014. Milton Vervay was the replacement for Bettel, and it paid off, winning three races in his first season. Since then, the team slipped in performance, but have begun their rise, making a huge positive leap between 2016 and 2017. Now, with the era of equal performance and V10 Hybrid Engines, this Audi manufactured team will need to get every ounce of effort out of their R&D to get a leg up on the championship.

    Van Dort Racing 2018.png
    German outfit Lockhart Autosport used to dominate the midfield, but, much like Scuderia Aston in the lead pack, they messed up somewhere down the road, and now sit second behind Mersault. They've been an independent outfit for many years, but went into administration halfway through 2017. However, tyre supplier Lockhart came into to pay off the debts, and now they remain in the sport. British fan-favourite Joey Sylvander lines up as the first driver, and Matthew Hanlon runs as second driver, with only a year left on his contract. It's unknown where he might be next season.

    MacNeil Racing Team 2018.png
    Oberhof Racing have fallen INTO the midfield, after their 2010-2013 stretch, in which they won four World Constructor's Championships, and in which Pablo Archer won his first ever World Driver's Championship. There have been many a team that make an error and give away their champion driver, but Oberhof had Nico Surikov up their sleeve, and were prepared to let him go. Tomas Whitlock impressed in his first two seasons of the Open Wheel World Championship Series, and looks to chase more podiums, and possibly a win this season.

    Kitano Sport 2018.png
    The third Audi team in the championship, Bexbach Sport have made their name as the best motorsports outfit in Belgium, home to the famous Spa-Francorchamps Circuit. The team swept the honours in their first year in 2008, with Samuel Blanc winning the World Drivers' Championship. After being involved in a race-fixing scandal in the 2009 Phoenix 500, the team had their most disgraceful moment, being disqualified from the World Constructor's Championship after second driver Alex Da Souza spilled the truth to the GECC executives. Since then, the team have taken many memorable victories, including a historic last-lap pass to win at the storied Monza circuit. With the team being steeped in history through it's 10 years in the Cup, they look to remake history from 2008, and win both the World Drivers' and World Constructors' Championship eleven years forward. Louis van Norden and Mik Power are the drivers attempting to do so.

    Velan Racing 2018.png
    BMW return to manufacturing cars for Pamplona Racing Team, as this Swiss outfit see their history as front runners turn to present shame as backmarkers. Darren Brown and Kennedy Townsend are both former champions, in 2003 and 2004, but both are entering their final seasons in the sport, and hope to retire, stating, "We've had great careers, but look to move on. We'll miss the sport, but still stay close". Now, with the introduction of spec parts and equal performance, the team are no longer backmarkers. Can they take glory at last? We'll be watching...

    Windsor Racing 2018.png
    Marshall GP have been the average team of the era, and one of the oldest teams currently in the sport, the oldest being Scuderia Aston GP. They are one of the two British teams in the sport. Despite being in the sport for a long time, they've failed to amount to anything, and many have wondered when they may realize their time is up. Nevertheless, they keep pushing, and now have their first and best chances of redemption for all these years of struggling, with the spec parts programme being initiated. Can their all British lineup of Harry Williams and Jack Waren deliver, or are they stuck to another bland, boring season in 2018?

    Rezzato Corsa 2018.png
    Yuma Race Team enter the sport this year to up the Constructors to eleven. This Japanese outfit have shown potential throughout pre-season, both on and off the track. With Mercedes backing their car, and using year-old Steinmann Racing engines, this team hope for early points with a lineup of American James Wisconsin and New Zealander Roger Taylor.

    Well, that's the lineup. See you this weekend for the first race of the 2018 season!
