KAP World Grand Prix Series


Prymont

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

      This radio broadcast is brought to you by The Khanikstan Observer in support by The Khanikstan Communist Party. The Khanikstan Observer and its team of journalists fully supports the Khanikstan Communist Party and report the news as fact under His Respected Supreme Leader Hamad Khan's great kindness. The Television Broadcast is brought to you by The Khanikstan Communist Party. 
      The voice of Ahmed Ayman is sent through the airwaves of Khanikstan. Villages all over Khanikstan are huddling around their village TV or tucked away in the homes with their hears pressed against the radios. Large cities are holding public viewing parties attracting people by the hundreds. The broadcast shows Ahmed Ayman in 480p sitting at a desk with a microphone in his hand pool side.
      "It's been 54 long years since this land has seen sporting competitions, and under His Respected Supreme Leader Hamad Khan's excellent guidance, he agrees that international sport is a viable path forward for the Khanikstan people to introduce themselves to the wurld after decades of war kept the country isolated. His Respected believes the Khanikstanian populous to be rife with wurld class swimmers, and has promised only the most excellent accommodations for national athletes. That decree two years leads us here today on the second anniversary of the announcement of the program. Today. 32 swimmers will take the pool to compete in the 100 meter freestyle race. For those listening from across Khanikstan unfamiliar with the swimming, a freestyle stroke is the classic form of swimming. Swimmers will be reaching their arms forward and pulling their arms back with the water while kicking their feet across the pool! Most of the original four thousand athletes competing admitted they had only learned to swim after the Supreme Leader's decree, so we hope this broadcast inspires Khanikstanians everywhere that they too can bring home some national pride." 
       
      "Lets break it down to how we got here, and what today is going to look like." The broadcast switches to silent footage of Hamad Khan giving the decree, and then cycles through various clips of military personnel marching, working or training   "Two years ago His Respected announced a national swimming program that would give only the best athletes a chance at a better life. With most of these men today active service members, a good showing in the pool could mean a lot right now with the political climate what it is"
      The broadcast cuts to a black screen. 45 seconds later, the broadcast cuts back to the set by the pool where Nazif Muhiddin sits with his microphone
      "While all Khanikstanian service members are deeply proud of their service for their country and the Khanikstan Communist Party, they most importantly want to show off the might of the Khanikstan Armed Forces by showing off their dominance as athletes. Now, lets break it down to how we got here, and what today is going to look like."
      The broadcast lists quickly through roughly four thousand names, before cycling through the 32 competitors here today. Footage of the athletes racing or at the pool
      "four thousand swimmers from military bases across the country took the pool in groups of eight, with the top thirty two fastest times earning you a spot today here in Varrock. Today, those thirty two swimmers will be broken down into four heats. The top sixteen times will advance to two semi final rounds where we will end our action for the day! The final race will take place a few weeks from today in honor of Supreme Leader Hamad Khan's 37th birthday. 
      The fastest time coming in belonged to Houshmand Jarral out of Manahal's military base. He will be racing in the third heat of the day. Burak Khawaja is another name to note as he JUST squeaked in by a hair taking up the 32nd spot. If you think you remember his name, you might! Burak Khawaja was the Khanikstan Special Investigation Bureau (KSIB) agent who captured infamous radical Azbekistan loyalist Khamas Hoaral in a sting last spring. He's surely a crowd favorite going in!"
      The broadcast cuts to the pool, where the 8 swimmers in the first heat line up at their blocks.
      "We are poolside just a minute away from the beginning of a new prosperous era under His Respected Supreme Leader for many years to come. In our first heat we have eight athletes representing six different military bases. The swimmers have taken their mark, and the gun sounds! Khanikstan sports are back! The first length of the pool stays close, with the lead swimmer Zurvan Chauhan swimming at a rough 52 second pace right before the first turn. The names read Shadvari Mirani touching the wall first, Turag Prajapati second and Chauhan not far behind. The pace definitely increases in the last twenty five meters! A top three finish here will guarantee a spot in the semis and it looks like its gonna be a tight finish for the top three but a gap separates them from fourth. Vineet Ajnera gets his fingertips on the wall first!  Mirani lands in second, Chauhan third.  Turag Prajapati settles in at 50.87. With only sixteen spots available, he's got a lot of athletes still to race to test that time against.
      The broadcast shows the final results and they read
       Vineet Ajmera 49.53
       Shadvard Mirani 49.57
       Zurvan Chauhan 49.67
       Turag Prajapati 50.87
       Semih Chandio 51.63
       Shervan Sangha 52.15
       Zengin Bhatti 52.22
      Tansal Mohmand 52.22
      The broadcast remains at the final results screen for over two minutes. Silence flooded the airways until loud mic feedback blared its way through the nation's speakers. A third voice cuts through the feedback, corrects the mic and begins to speak in a calm monotone voice over the results graphic
      "The Khanikstan Communist Party is urging all citizens to return to their homes. This is not a drill. As of one hour from the end of this broadcast, Khanikstan is under strict curfew until further notice. No one will be permitted to leave their homes unless specified by Khanikstan Communist Party Official. This is not a drill. Criminals caught for breaking curfew will be treated as traitors to the Peoples Republic of Khanikstan. 
       
      The KSP's seal is shown on the broadcast, the national anthem is played, and it fades to black.

      Room for reply
      As host and game master for this RP, I will be generating random match results with the FIFA Football Match Generator. I will copypaste the results in this topic. Each match will be generated only once so the results are random. After the results are posted, each participant in the match is welcome to RP the story of their team. I will leave 2 days or 48 hours for you to reply with an RP story. This is not an obligation, but will earn you the advantage of a "second chance".
      Gain a higher chance of winning
      Players who reply with RP a story of at least 300 words will be awarded a "second chance" in the next match, meaning: I will generate two match results. This feature serves to reward active participation.
      One RP player. Should one of these two results be in favour of the player who RP'ed the story of their last match, then the favourable result will be chosen. Should a "second chance" deliver two bad results for the player who RP'd, then the result that is least negative for their side is chosen. Two RP players. This "second chance" is ignored if both players RP'd their last match.
