1. General

What is Formula SimRacing?
If you have no idea yet what Formula SimRacing is, we’d recommend you to visit this or this link.
If you have further questions, let us know in the appropriate FSR Forum or send an email to admin@formula-simracing.net.
For Press and Marketing requests, please contact president@formula-simracing.net.

What are the long term goals of Formula SimRacing?
Basically, we strive to become more and more professional all the time. We are highly likely to have Live Broadcasts of our events in 2007 which is a major step into this direction. We plan to have more companies as sponsors involved in our project in order to grow even further and to be able to give away more and more prize money. We’re also planning bigger events and meetings for the future. And what else? Well, time will show. We've got a few rather big plans in our minds and we'll see what will be possible in the future.
Our standards and targets are very high, the Administration of Formula SimRacing and the International SimRacing Club are doing their work honorarily and with great passion and enthusiasm.


2. Getting started

I heard that in order to participate in Formula SimRacing as a driver, I have to pay money. Is that right?
No. That’s a rumour which we know about since longer time that it is spreaded in the simracing scene.
The World Series league is completely free of charges for teams and drivers.
For participating in the World Championship category, teams will have to purchase a license from the International SimRacing Club. But that does not mean that the team’s drivers have to have their share in those licences. On the contrary: In the most current top teams, drivers get paid for their duties by the teams’ sponsors.

I would like to race in the World Series category. Whom do I approach for that?
It depends whether you as the driver would like to join an already existant team or whether you would like to start with your own team.
Joining an existing team makes sense if you’re a rookie or if you don’t have a teammate to race with yet, because this way the team can support you in all important areas and it will surely answer all your questions. In order to get attraction from World Series teams, just make a new post in the ?Team and Driver Vacancies? Forum.
To enter your own team, you need to register it on FSR’s website. For further questions, please consult the World Series Director or post your question in the World Series Forum.

My team wants to enter the professional World Championship category. Whom do we approach for that?
Please send an email to admin@formula-simracing.net and tell Formula SimRacing about your intention to compete in the World Championship category. The Administration will try to get back to you as soon as possible in order to enter your team in the World Championship.


3. FSR

Why does FSR not allow me to use my nickname in the game and in the tables?
Simply because we’re a serious league and we would like to appear as such. In our eyes, using Nicknames is improfessional and it is not our habit to support that.
Everyone in FSR is using his real name.

Is my team allowed to have its own skins and textures?
You’re not only allowed, you’re very much encouraged!
All World Championship teams have their own skins, and most of the World Series teams as well. For questions concerning how to get your textures into the official FSR Modification, please consult one of the two category directors.

At which time are the races starting?
World Series Pro starts at 21:00GMT on Fridays, World Series Ace at 13:00GMT on Saturdays, and the World Championship at 17:30GMT on the same day. Qualifyings are directly before the races. For more information, please download the rules in our downloads section.

Does Formula SimRacing currently offer prize money in the World Championship category?
We did offer quite a few prize money in 2005, but for this year we went through kind of a restructuration phase with a lot of important personalities changing roles within the FSR Administration. We’ve changed quite many things in FSR’s organization which had the top priority at that time because that was so important if we wanted to keep and extend our high standards. That made it difficult timewise to get in talks with partners for this year. So, no, we do not offer prize money in 2006.
However, we are highly likely to have sponsors for 2007, so that we can again offer prize money for next year.
It is not only FSR that tries to offer more and more prize money though, the teams themselves were able to attract quite a few sponsors since some time. You’d have to consult the respective parties for further information.

What Controller is the best?
Of course, steering wheels have to be used in our leagues to be any competitive, but which one? That’s a good question, and people have different opinions on that. A rather cheap but solid wheel is the Microsoft SideWinder, whereas wheels like the Logitech Momo’s or Driving Force Pro are more precise but also more expensive. Most drivers do use Logitech wheels though. For more information you should contact a driver, or a team, or simply ask in our Forums and people will surely assist in finding the best controller for you!

I installed all the FSR patches. But how can I be sure that I did everything right?
Our gameserver, named ?Formula-SimRacing.net’ is online 24/7. You can join and see if you have any mismatches. If you don’t have any then that’s very good, but if you want to be 100% sure, you can send a test-logfile to the WC / WS Directors. For more information how to do that, please contact them directly.

How does Formula SimRacing prevent cheating and how are cuttings being checked?
We’ve developed our own anti-cheat tool we are really satisfied with and which is steadily developed further. We haven’t had any issues with cheating for a very long time. Also, and despite all the hard competition, there is a really good atmosphere among our drivers, which we’re really happy about. Drivers have to launch the game through that tool, and after the session they have to submit a logfile which is created by that tool. They also have to submit their fastest laps which are then being checked for possible cuts, especially qualifying laps.


4. World Championship

How much does a World Championship licence cost and for how long time is it valid?
The Club sells the licences for 1000,- ? (one thousand) Euros. If the Club has given all licences away, interested parties can try to purchase an existing team. Details and pricing are to be freely discussed between those two parties.
The licences are valid as long as Formula SimRacing exists.

Why does the World Championship category not allow any driving aids although today’s Formula One has all the likes of devices to make the driver’s life easier?
Although we are not allowed to mention Formula One on the website due to legal reasons, quite clearly is FSR orientating to it. But that doesn’t mean we have to simulate all the downsides of the modern standards, such as Traction Controls and handling aids. The World Championship category is a place for the best simracers of this world. Formula One may need its aids ? we don’t. We are in fact proud that, in order to be competitive, a lot of talent, experience and practice has to be put in, unlike in Formula One, where Formula 3 rookies can easily set the fastest times in their very first free practice ever. That’s hardly possible in Formula SimRacing.

How much practice do I need to be competitive in the World Championship category?
Of course, we can’t answer that question so easily. It depends very much on the talent and the experience of a driver. Most top drivers in the World Championship category need to spend maybe 20% of their practice to be reasonably fast and 80% to find the last five tenths or so through more setup work.
Other drivers might need to do more percentage of practice to find their limits.
The top drivers usually do around almost 1000 practice laps for a race which would be something like 22 hours. Others are happy with 30% of that and are still very fast. It’s really hard to say, because it’s just an individual thing.

So, can basically every driver compete in the World Championship?
Well, basically yes. The league hands out a ?superlicense’ to every driver which allows him to compete in the WC, since we need to be sure that the driver is capable of controlling his car and of not being too slow. Drivers can get a superlicense by doing World Series races and showing good behaviour, or they apply for it by showing results of an other online-league they had participated in. But yes, in principle everyone can compete, as long as he has got a good enough computer and a steering wheel as a controller, of course. There are also no age restrictions or something like that. It’s all up to the driver’s behaviour on track.


5. The International SimRacing Club

How can I become a member of the International Simracing Club and what are my advantages to be in there?
Currently, only World Championship Team Owners and Club/League Administrators can become members.
We offer an email group with all members where any matters can be discussed. New ideas can be brought in, people can express their opinion, and of course the Club Members can take part in the annual vote on the ISR Club President.
Team Owners are also organised in yet another email group, the Team Owners Association, where they have a certain say on sporting rules of the World Championship category.

What does the International SimRacing Club do with license incomes?
We’re happy to have the best technology supporting us in terms of both webserver and gameserver. This is very important for us because that’s what makes the league a special place. Obviously, we don’t get that service for nothing, so the most expenses we have go in that direction. If we have a reasonable surplus, it will be given away as prize money.

 

Do you have more questions that you find should be put into the FAQ?
Please send an email with your question to admin@formula-simracing.net and we'll do our best to answer it and make it visible in this page as soon as possible.
Thank you!
