Last week we announced this year’s TSA F1 Championship, and I’m glad to see that it’s been really rather popular. However there are a handful of places on the grid remaining, and with entries closing at 11PM tonight it’s time to remind those on the fence to put their names into the hat!
We will try to accommodate latecomers, but best to get in now. Just scroll down a bit to get to the entry form at the bottom of this post.
You can get all the details about the competition on the original announcement post, whilst we had a dedicated second post for the prizes alongside the awesome Elgato Game Capture HD giveaway, but I’ll give you a quick summary of what’s going on.
Starting this coming Sunday, the 14th of October, and Monday, the 15th of October, we’ll have 5 weeks of racing. The first and third weeks will feature two shorter 5 lap races, whilst the second and fourth will be 25% races. Using standard F1 points throughout (with 5 lap races worth half), the fifth and final week of racing will see the top 8 drivers from each group face off in a grand final on Sunday 11th of November.
That’s really about it, I must say. There are some nittier and grittier explanations on the original post, but it’s mainly about racing fairly and keeping it fun whilst still fighting hard for positions.
I do have one little tidbit to announce here, ahead of Thursday’s full announcement. For the first week we’ll be visiting two tracks for a 5 lap race each, and these are Melbourne, Australia and Sepang, Malaysia. So, it’s time to get practicing!
As an extra “little” incentive, we have a pretty great pool of prizes this year. The top three drivers will get a trophy, as is tradition for this competition, and we also have Insert Coin sponsoring our competition with £10, £20 and £35 vouchers for the podium finishers, with Elgato rounding us out with some nicely branded T-shirts.
We’re also bringing back the Drivers’ Choice Award, with another little trophy and a £5 Insert Coin voucher going to the most popular driver from the rest of the pack, as voted for by the drivers. I guess the name was pretty self explanatory…
Alongside the run up to the racing, Elgato have been sponsoring us with a fantastic Game Capture HD giveaway. If you’re in the F1 Championship then you already have an entry, but there’s also an entry form to fill in on the competition post and instructions on how you can enter via twitter on top of this.
Without much further ado, I leave you with the entry form once more. We’ll be back on Thursday with the reveal of the groups and the tracks we will be racing on.
Entries are now closed, and the Championship is under way.
