The series will be a single make series with the Red Bull X2014 Standard car the weapon of choice for this series. While every race will be important towards finishing in the top 3 and earning prizes, the crown jewel of the series will be the Willow Springs 500 where the drivers will also compete for extra prizes. Majority of the races will be 100km races with the exception of the Willow Springs 500 and the final round which will be 150km. All drivers are welcome to enter and take part in the series.

Races will be run on Sunday nights with the Formula Track Stars action scheduled to take place at around 8 PM AEST (or AEDT in Australian Daylight Savings season) this projected time may be moved forwards or backwards depending on the series position on the events program so we suggest that all drivers stay on the lookout for further information closer to each race.

Driving Standards

As we have damage turned of for the races we will not be opposed to a little bit of rubbing and bumping between cars as long as no one has their race severely affected by any contact. In the event contact does occur and a driver does lose more than the one position we recommend that the driver attempting to pass drops back behind the affected driver to address the situation.

Glad to have you back on board again. #27 is all yours. Are you doing any other categories or just the Formula Track Stars class?

OP has been updated with the finalisation and clarification of the car specifications and tyre regulations as follow:

Car

The car that will be used for the 2019 Formula Track Stars Series will be the Red Bull X2014 Standard car.

Specifications
Power: 698bhp
Weight: 650kg

Tyres

Drivers are able to select any tyre compound that they wish to wish to use during the event, but they must do so under the condition that:

  1. They start the race using the same tyre compound that they used in qualifying.
  2. They use 2 different tyre compounds during the race.
I was debating whether to switch to the Super Formula Cars which will be released later this month, however I feel this will be the best way forward by racing the car with the highest performance and also not springing a surprise on everyone a few weeks out from the start of the series and forcing everyone to buy a new car.​

Race Starts

Please take caution at race starts to ensure yourself and all other competitors make it through turn 1 without incident. With damage turned off you can get away with a little bit of panel rubbing but there should be no excuses for charging into turn 1 and running into someone else and ruining their race right at the start. There will be plenty of time to make your way to the front if you are fast enough.

Driving Standards

Race organisers are not opposed to some light contact during racing for position. But if you make contact with another competitor which causes them to lose more than the single position or a huge chunk of time then it is expected that you either readdress the position or serve a drive through penalty.

Pit In/Out lines


On pit entry we will show a bit of leniency with the pit entry line as it is a sharp change in direction following the exit of the corner. On the pit exit we do ask that you stay inside of the white line for the duration of the markings.

Blocking/Weaving


Drivers will be permitted one defensive move, but we will tolerate constant weaving on the straights or a change in direction.
