KAP World Grand Prix Series

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello one and hello all, and welcome to the 2018 KAP World Grand Prix Series!

The newly founded WGPS, sponsored and powered by KAP Limited (the world's best automotive manufacturer), has finally been revealed to the world. Countries are encouraged to develop chassis, find and nurture homegrown talent, and bring their best to the world stage to compete in the premier spec series. The national teams will be expected to develop and construct their own chassis, meeting the requirements to fit a unique KAP V10 4.0l mid-mounted powerhouse. Depending on the amount of entries, two to three drivers will be permitted per team, hopefully filling out a 20+ car grid. 

The KAP WGPS will travel to the greatest circuits of the world, spanning six continents and several countries. Due to a strict budget cap, teams will not require sponsors, and are being encouraged to design artistic liveries in the nation's home colours. Spearheaded by WGPS President Aslak Eikeland, the series hopes to kick off pre-season testing by the end of the month. A race calendar and points system will be confirmed upon the finalisation of the entry list.

OOC: So, this is finally happening. After weeks of trial and error, I've got an Excel sim from an old Reddit fantasy league working and I'm able to host the competition. The results will be fully simulated in Microsoft Excel, using an albeit basic sim that requires little user input. Roleplay is welcomed but not a necessity due to time restrictions. I'm hoping to get one race every fortnight.
Once entries begin to roll in, I'll generate drivers for the team and randomly assign stats to decide how competitive they are. Each team's chassis will also be randomly generated. If there's enough demand, I can release a blank template for teams to design car liveries. 
For the 'National Circuit', each country is welcome to submit a (real life) circuit for the calendar. I'll update this post to include teams, drivers, and the calendar. I'll place a tentative deadline for applications for the 29th of March, so we can start pre-season testing by the end of the month and start the actual calendar in April.
In the name of fairness, I will not be participating, and will instead oversee the running of the league, which includes simulating the races and writing the race reviews. If interest is high, others may write about their team, such as reactions to the races, behind-the-scenes narratives, etc.

TEAM NAME: Heerefal's Rampant Racers
TEAM PRINCIPAL: Walter Troogfelt
NATIONAL CIRCUIT: HCR Street Circuit (IRL: Caesars Palace Grand Prix Circuit)

Circuit_Caesars_Palace.png

The Heerefal Casino Resort's Street Circuit, often simply called the HCR Street Circuit, is a multi-functional circuit attached and belonging to the Heerefal Casino Resort in Ferrefaaierhafen. While originally a temporary circuit set up on the parking lot of the casino for the 1983 and 1984 Varinco's Street Race Championships, the HCR rebuilt it in a permanent manner in 1986 after other plots of land were acquired for parking spaces. Whenever the circuit isn't being used for organised events or private racing sessions, one can rent time (and a Casino-approved vehicle) and race against others. Fans of the circuit praise its perfectly smooth surfaces, wide track and ample run-off areas while critics state that the counter clockwise direction of the track is fierce enough to kill the drivers due to sudden neck-snap. The Heerefal Casino Resort wants to point out that everyone signs a contract that releases HCR from any responsibility if that ever happens.

COUNTRY: The Grand Federal Kingdom of Adaptus
NATIONAL RACING COLOURS: Dark Green and Gold. 
TEAM NAME: Lautus Perambulo (Grand Touring) 
TEAM PRINCIPAL: Cicero Constantine (Nicknamed Ci-Ci)
NATIONAL CIRCUIT: The Cusic Circuit. 

Team Lautus Perambulo stem from the Adapton car manufacture Lautus. Rarely releasing a new car, they focus primarily on engine development, often supplying high end engines to many of the regions racing teams and performance car manufactures. Spending increasing time on their development of hybrid technologies to compliment their already vast knowledge of internal combustion. Lautus will be continuing the development of their 3S engine series, this time with the 3S-ETF-K20, a redesigned version of their 2016 engine. Focusing on more efficient turbo delivery, as well as a more efficient hybrid coupling system, allowing the transition of power from wheel to wheel more fluid and efficient. Both of their Lautus' drivers will be returning this season. 

  • Markus Augois (Adpatus)
  • Fredrick Menser (Tamurin)

The Causic Circuit is renowned throughout the region as a fierce and and touch track, often used by Lautus in the off season to test their latest engines. Nestled within the Causicrussian forests, the track is prone to wet weather, and with it's many turns, and sharp apexes the wet can test the abilities of even the best drivers. It is not a track to be taken lightly. The circuit is also known for hosting a 6, 12 and 24 hour endurance serious known as Tres Caestu Iudicii (the Three Gauntlet Trial), where teams are challenged to a 6 hour endurance race using Touring Car rules. The following day a teams are challenged to a 12 hour endurance race following GT3 rules, and finally after a days break, a finally 24 hour endurance race following GTE rules. This has given the track a reputation of one of the regions toughest circuits.

COUNTRY: Free Port of Cristina
NATIONAL RACING COLOURS: Dark blue-gray, black and white
TEAM NAME: Scuderia Fiorini
TEAM PRINCIPAL: Francesca Fiorini
NATIONAL CIRCUIT: The Central Street Circuit (rl: Marina Bay Street Circuit)

Marina_bay_circuit_svg.png

Constructing the temporary Central Street Circuit is all about perfecting the fine details in big numbers. Despite a five-month build process, maximum care is taken by the organisers to minimise disruption to traffic and businesses in and around the 5.065km circuit – with all work done in phases, on a zone-by-zone basis.

It all begins when all race-related infrastructure (barriers, fences, cables, track lighting and more) is steadily removed from a 38,130sqm storage facility in the central part of Cristina.

RTEmagic_P_02499_02500_9_l.png

The first port of call is the pit straight, the circuit’s only permanent section, with contractors installing concrete barriers, debris fencing and lighting projectors – establishing one of the event’s key nerve centres.

As the race infrastructure continues to be installed around the circuit across the next few months, so do the nine grandstands and corporate hospitality facilities that will accommodate the 86,000 daily spectators.

Of course, one of the most impressive aspects of the CRISTINA GRAND PRIX is the racing under lights – with the state-of-the-art system from Cristinese lighting specialists CT Engineering delivering optimal visibility for night race conditions.

images_11.jpg

Featuring around 1600 lighting projectors strategically positioned around the track, the bespoke system ensures the world’s best drivers can focus on what they do best, racing wheel-to-wheel, with minimal glare and reflections from a wet surface or spray from other cars.

As the weeks count down to the race weekend, the entertainment stages, tents for merchandise, and food and beverage outlets are installed. While on the pit straight, temporary Sky and Club suites are all being fitted out ready for the caterers to deliver a five-star experience.

And, as the race weekend begins, the CRISTINA GRAND PRIX organisers are planning the pack-down, and dismantle of the circuit – for its return to city streets with minimal disruption to traffic and businesses.

COUNTRY: Sunset Sea Islands
NATIONAL RACING COLOURS: Black and Gold
TEAM NAME: SSI SpeedStars
TEAM PRINCIPAL: Koichiro Iketani
NATIONAL CIRCUIT: Hakone Circuit (IRL: Suzuka)

Y4Mkx8x.jpg

Featuring plenty of corners along its five-and-a-half kilometers, the forested Hakone Circuit is a true challenge for every driver. Not only do the contestants have to overcome a series of challenging S-curves and hairpins, they also have to deal with the intense height differences along the track. The audience will be stunned by beautiful aerial shots of the mountainous landscape of Sunset Island, fish-eye cameras placed on the cars will also let viewers observe the rapid race from a stereoscopic 3D 360-degree perspective.

b20a1a9c638a5a7f3e70afeda0df956a--roads-

Originally founded by a group of amateur mountain pass racers, the SSI SpeedStars rose to become the national racing team of the Radiant Republic of the Sunset Sea Islands. After earning enough money through bets and sponsorship deals, Koichiro Iketani, the team's founder, designed and built the Hakone Circuit in 1995 to bring the world of professional racing to the Sunset Sea Islands.

TEAM NAME: FLAC Racing Team
TEAM PRINCIPAL: Marco Bucelli
NATIONAL CIRCUIT: Menzane Circuit (IRL: Monza Grand Prix Circuit)

Monza-Circuit-map-layout.jpg

AutodromoNazionaleMonza-foto-air.jpg

The Menzane Circuit is the oldest track built solely for Motorsport in Limonaia, it was constructed in 1924 and is 5.793 km long. The modern circuit was built in 1979 but the two older circuits are still there and are sometimes used. The track is located just outside of the city of Celano, Limonaia's third largest city. It features a separate train station. Today it servers as Limonaia's primary track, being used for various Motorsport related events throughout the year including the Limonaian Grand Prix (Gran Premio di Limonaia).

OOC: This is probablty a tad too late, but I thought I'd give it a try anyways

The race is set to start in Zuidhaven (Orioni) and should go around Europa in a clockwise fashion. Therefore we still looking for coastal nations who are willing host an Act (stage) of the race. If so, please contact me with the name of your coastal city, and the organisation will try and fit said city into the racing schedule.

      Ok so here is the idea.. I wanted to do something like O only with soccer (Plejurism of ideas I know, I know but I actually mentioned that the idea was from her and in the eyes of the IB Diploma this is no more plerjurism ).
       
      What you guys will have to post is just two simple things:
       
      - Nickname of Team e.g. Azzurri, Albiceleste, L'equipe Tricolore, etc.
      - Trainer of Team
       
      Plain simple.. At the end of the Cup someone will have the best team in Europa Sign in now!

    • Samura Heavy Industries was the very first Keiretsu to come into existence, founded in 1872 by Masamune Samura. He had a very close relationship with the reigning Emperor who entrusted him in developing Kipan's industrial capacity by using the technological advancements in manufacturing and resource extraction that were flowing into the islands due to the Udo Transformation. In short order, Samura raised a vast industrial empire. The corporation has maintained its firm grip over a huge swath of the economy for generations and has no intention of letting up. Samura has an 'understanding' with the Hogosha ('protectors'), a quasi-legitimate organization who provide brute muscle and guard Samura's assets. Although it's at the top of the "Big Ten," they are very aware of the Sato Corporation's rapid growth. Over much of its history, Samura has been a predominant supplier to the military, alongside their closest business ally, Obata. The industries Samura focuses on include chemicals, mining & metallurgy, steel production, forestry, oil & petrochemicals, concrete, construction, shipbuilding, timber & paper products, power plants, arms manufacturing, aviation, machinery, glass, and aluminum.

    • The Sato Corporation is one of Kipan's large, vertical group of enterprises, or keiretsu, owned by the beautiful and intelligent Asami Sato. Amongst the various business empires, Sato is the youngest of the "Big Ten" keiretsus, and while it is not nearly as expansive as Samura Heavy Industries, Sato is rapidly growing both in market share and political power - a combination the other nine wish to impede at all costs. The company originally started as an automotive manufacturer, constructing cars that were practical and affordable for the common man. Millions of cars on Kipan's roads can be traced back to Sato's assembly lines. Though automobiles remains a core product of the Corporation, under Asami, the Sato Corporation has seen tremendous growth in the length and breadth of businesses it is involved in. This includes real estate, cosmetics & fragrances, department stores, hotels, textiles, advertising, cameras, optics & imaging, a range of day-to-day household and consumer products, supermarkets, telecommunications, and rubber products. And the list keeps growing. Sato has their own racing team with the car driven by the CEO no less.
