Last year, TSA launched its largest competition (in terms of scale) in the TSA F1 Championship. With what turned out to be three groups of 12 racing once a week each for 10 weeks and the final 12 racing for a further 3 weeks, it was the largest undertaking we had ever done and this year we’re ready to do it again!
This year the championship will consist of:
- 3 groups of 16 drivers
- One race per group each week for 6 weeks (so 6 races each)
- Group A will run on Sundays (starting the 16th October) at 5pm
- Group B will run on Mondays at 6pm
- Group C will run on Tuesdays at 8pm
Each group will have exactly the same rules and restrictions as the others, so you choose which group you want based purely on the preferable time and day for you. Also, each group will have a community team member who will set up the lobby and be in charge of that group. If a racing incident occurs (like a crash) and one of the drivers think it was deliberate or unfair then they should bring it up (discreetly) after the race with the community team member in charge. The three CT team members will be myself (AG2297), Teflon and Jambo. We will also be racing and trying to do as well as we possibly can too although Teflon and I wont be eligible for any of the prizes.
Talking of prizes, we will be giving away a trophy (an example of last years) to first, second and third place with a fourth trophy for a driver who has been the best sport throughout the championship, sort of a “Peoples’ Champion” which will be voted on by all the other drivers. We will also be trying to add to the prize pot throughout the championship. Unfortunately the prizes will be UK only, but this doesn’t mean you cant enter the championship from outside of the UK. The more the merrier!
The rules for the different assists you will be allowed to use and information regarding what tracks will be used can be found on the next page. Please read these rules and remember, this championship is competitive but it is still primarily for fun. If you only want to win and show no regard for the other drivers and therefore don’t race for fun… please don’t enter.
To enter, I need you to email me with the subject “F1” at adam[at]thesixthaxis[dot]com with your TSA and PSN ID. You will also need to tell me which date and time you would prefer from the three above (Group A, B or C) or if you could make any of the dates then please do let me know, that way you have more chance of getting a place! The deadline for entry is Tuesday 11th October so make sure you send in your email before then!
The Championship will start on Sunday 16th October with the participants being announced on Wednesday 12th October to let you guys know what tracks and what groups you are in. If there is a large demand there may not be enough space for everyone who enters.
Last year there were plenty of practice meets each week where anyone is welcome (from in or out of the championship) and this year we are hoping for even more. Also, we do love to chat while racing so having a headset is a great addition although we will also set up a chat lobby too. All that is left to say is good luck to all of you who enter!
