Lockdown Fantasy Series Fun

A little bit of a fun brain ticker for all stuck in the boredom of lockdown:

Pick your fantasy series!

You must pick 3 classes of car current, future or past.

You can select 10 race meetings for the calendar on tracks current, or using old configurations.

Pick your qualifying and race format, whether its a consistent format for all events or different throughout.

You can specify driver ranking restrictions, car count limits, pit stop formats, SC/FCY regs, you name it.

Should be fun!

OK, I'll bite. I'm keeping this somewhat realistic.

DRM - deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft

This series will be born from the ashes of DTM. The idea is to continue with the existing class-1-cars at least for two or three years until a new top class can be established. Simultaneously, the series aims to bring back the spirit of the Nürburgring 24h race between 2003 and 2005 when Audi and Opel ran their DTM cars and BMW and Porsche joined in with their GT2 contenders.

Three classes:

Class A - Prototype: This class is for the existing class-1-cars, which would however be downtuned in an effort to make it possible for privateers to run in the series. The current and very expensive 2.0l turbo engines would be swapped out for the old V8s and power would be capped at around 450bhp. Porsche would be invited to run their mid-engined RSR in this class as well. Ideally, you'd get a grid of 2x factory BMW M4s, 2x Abt Audi RS5s, 2x Porsche AG RSRs and then a few more assorted privateer cars. Personally, I'd be more than happy to see ten cars in this class. There is no BoP in this class, but all cars need to adhere to a set power-to-weight-ratio. For 2023, an adoption of LMDH rules for this class will be evaluated.

Class B - Grand Touring: This class is for GTs and pony-cars and allows silhouette cars as well as production-body GT-cars. There are two types of cars that are intended to be the back-bone of this class, but other can be homologated as well. These two are the current Porsche 911 GT3 Cup-cars and the TA2-type Mustang/Camaro. This should be a cost-effective class, so there will be a BoP here. I'd expect another ten cars in this class.

Class C - Touring: TCR. Maybe allow in the new BMW M2 customer car.


Calender:
April: Zolder
May 1: Hockenheim
May 2: An airfield circuit, location TBA.
June: Zeltweg
July 1: Norisring (2x 100 miles)
July 2:Oschersleben
August 1: Nürburgring-GP-loop
August 2: Lausitzring (Saturday night, 500km race)
September 1: Sachsenring (1000km)
September 2: Hockenheim

If teams are in favor of a shorter calender, cut the first round at Hockenheim and Oschersleben.

All races would be 90 minutes except where otherwise indicated.
Class A is run with a single-driver format except in the enduros; in classes B and C drivers can run alone or do a driver change.

Qualifying format: Except for the first practice session of a weekend, all practice sessions count towards setting the grid.

Driver ratings: None for class A and C; Class B needs to be either Pro/Am or an amateur racing on his own.

DS" should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
In general, my ideas for all three classes is based around a performance triangle, to balance out all cars. The cornerstones of such a triangle would be power, downforce and weight. The logic being that for example a very light car won't have that much horse power and downforce, a very powerful car having lots of weight and not much downforce, while a car with lots of downforce doesn't have that much engine power, while also weighing more. Of course there are other factors to consider, such as engine torque, fuel consumption, drag and so on. The main principle is to simply allow a large variety of cars into each category. With that in mind, let me introduce the World Sportscar Championship

Class 1 -I think the old IMSA GTP formula of equivalency weights can be applied pretty well. It's basically anything goes, though the performance balancing should theoretically avoid manufacturers from going overboard. However, there will be mandatory spec parts, mostly stuff inside the car, such as the suspension or the gearbox.


Class 2 -This will lean on the old GT1 category, before the Porsche 911 GT1 arrived in late '96. It'll mostly be about supercars, modified for road racing.


Class 3 - This one is similar to class 2, only for regular sports cars such as the Porsche 911. However, this one will lean on the beginnings of the GT3 category. Basically the Porsche Cup car will be the base upon which the rest of the class will be rated on.


Round 1 - 12 Hours of Sebring
Round 2 - 1000 Miles of Monza
Round 3 - 1000 KM of Spa
Round 4 - 24 Hours of Le Mans
Round 5 - 1000 KM of Nürburgring GP
Round 6 - 1000 KM of Moscow
Round 7 - 1000 KM of Shanghai
Round 8 - 1000 KM of Suzuka
Round 9 - 1000 Miles of Sao Paulo
Round 10 - 1000 Miles of Adelaide

I would have two classes: 90s GT1 (all pro/factory) and modern GT3 (pro-am). Series:

Daytona 24H (Jan)
Sebring 12H (Feb)
Bathurst 12H (Mar)
Monza 6H (May)
Le Mans 24H (Jun)
Spa 24H (Jul)
Suzuka 10H (Aug)
Laguna Seca 8H (Sep)
Kyalami 9H (Oct)

I'd call it the "Intercontinental GT Challenge" .

No UK rounds picked yet guys??!

For me I would have a top class for Group C (pre F1 atmo era). A second class for 90's GT1 but with some kind of special build resttictions as some have previously offered to prevent things like 911 GT1 and Merc CLK/CLR taking over.
3rd class would be GT3. Because it's mega!

The 3 classes would run together at most races but there would be several rounds where the Grp C & GT's would have their own cup races.

R1 Monza
1x 1000km Sunday.

R2 Silverstone
1x GT Cup 500km Sat
1x 1000km Sum

R3 Paul Ricard
2x 500k

R4 Le Mans 24
Plus 1x GT Cup 200k Saturday morn.

R5 Nurburgring
2x 500km

R6 Spa
GT Cup 24 Hr
1x Grp C 250km sprint Saturday morn.

R7 Road America
1x 750km

R8 Buenos Aires
1x 1000km

R9 Suzuka
2x GT Cup 200mm
1x 1000km

R10 Kyalami
1x GT Cup 500
1x 1000km
