Cup Series > Vic Cup Series
Feedback from drivers rated the 2012 RC Formula1 Vic Cup Series as a great success! So we've expanded the 2013 series to five clubs as follows:
Best 4 rounds to count so if one date doesn't suit you then you will still be able to compete for the title of 2013 Victorian F1 Champion.
Medals for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and TQ will be presented at every round. So each round is also a stand-alone event.
In addition to the individual competition, entrants may optionally enter the team competition. Based on the full scale F1 constructors championship, teams of 2 may use the same body shell paint scheme but paint the drivers helmet and car numbers differently, and enter the Team Championship. Points earned individually will also count in the Team Championship. Teams may be real life or fictional team names. First come, first served for team names. Team shirts are optional but check out the photos below:
Each Round you will receive a ranking from First to Last. First earns 50 points, 2nd 49 points, etc. Points from the best 4 Rounds are added together to determine overall series placings.
The F1 National Rules will be used with the following amendments:
- Rubber tyres only
Just like last year we will use the normal club racing format of the host club and Rounds are run on a normal club day. This makes it very easy for the host club. Most clubs run 2 x 6 minute qualifiers and 3 x 6 minute finals. However, at least one of the host clubs is considering running a special format for F1 along the lines of the way full scale is run.
Trophies have been expanded to include: medals for every round (1st, 2nd, 3rd and TQ), series trophies for individual entrants (1st, 2nd, 3rd and concourse medal) and Team Championship (1st, 2nd, 3rd and best team paint scheme medals).
2012 Trophies and Medals (above)
To pay for trophies there will be a small entry fee of $4 per Round in addition to the host clubs normal race day entry fee.
If a scheduled Round is postponed due to rain then the Round will run on the next scheduled club day of the host club. If a Round is unable to be run before the next scheduled Round on the program then the Round will be cancelled. If 2 Rounds are cancelled then the competition will change to a Best of 3 Rounds instead of the scheduled Best of 4 Rounds.
