Evening gentlemen and any ladies that are around

I would like to propose a little league of Formula 1 using F1 2012 or 2013 to our many Ruffians out there.

After the huge success that we have with the Forza 4 championships, I thought maybe changing the pace slightly and trying something different.

Just wanting a rough idea to see if anybody would be interested in this?

A rule set would probably be something like this:

  • 2 x 25% races each week on 2 different tracks
  • NO Custom Set-ups, Quick Setups only
  • Single shot qualification
  • Same points system that we have for the other racing championships
  • Equal cars


and if i can think of anymore i will add to it, if this gets the go ahead

Do people still have F1 2012 in their collection?

If more people have that then how about using that instead?

Great idea Taff.

I have been planning on bring back our Ruff One Championship for its 3rd season this year and I am glad to see some interest in it.

I was thinking of sticking with using F1 2012 on the 360 - as I thought we would get more people interested in it as its dirt cheap now instead of the latest version (F1 2013) which is still quite pricey in the shops.

What you guys think of using F1 2012 for the competition?

Will do thanks mate

Me and Iceman were thinking of doing something like 12 rounds (each round would be 15 min qualifying and then race 25% length). The 12 rounds would be spread of the length if the real F1 season starting in March and finishing Nov.

What you guys think of the length of the season? Shorter? Longer?

Could you face doing 2 racing leagues in a week?

I was thinking if maybe a Monday night so to keep Tuesdays free for other comps and events

Ok looks like we will go for 2012 on the 360 just need to decide on how many rounds we go for. So a full season matching the real F1 season (some new tracks arnt in 2012 game but we can use older tracks to fill the gaps of the missing tracks) would mean our championship would be 19 rounds! Running from mid March to end of Nov - is that something you guys would like? Or that a little too much? I'm happy to go with what you guys want. It would be an epic comp!

Mikethemute said he's up for using F1 2012 as well.

I'd be game to play a full calendar but it might not be viable for everyone?

I know what your saying and I do agree with you about that some people might struggle to take part ever race. The thing is we do something nearly every Tuesday whether it is a competition, event or gamernight and most of you guys make it no problem. I recon we will be surprised by the turn out.

I will go with what you guys want. The options are -

8 race Calender
12 race Calender
19 race Calender - Full season.

All of the options would be spread over the length of the real F1 Season.

Post below what you want guys

P.s I think we will stick with the normal Tursday slot at 10pm

I like the idea of any of the those I really don't mind. No matter how long the championship some people are going to miss out on some races.

I'd personally go full season with 15 min qualifying and 25% races

Would it not be a good idea to use T3RRAF0RMs idea of only counting your best x number of races, say we do 19 races, just take your best 15 results for the final result at the end?

It would get a bit complicated when working out the weekly score, but if we just count the points of the first 15 races the driver can make and then if they attend anymore compare that race to their worst performance and if it is better (in terms of finishing position) then swap them out?

That way it gives the drivers some flexibility, it doesn't have to be 15 races, it could less, just whatever everyone thinks.

Just a thought! (More throwing a spanner in the mix)

I like that it gives an option to drivers who miss a few races but I'm worried it will get too messy with the results. I find the best comps we have done are more clear cut and straight forward. So it might be a case the drivers who take part more get higher in the standings.
