It is almost that time, men. I have started this annual thread to allow for the proper banter with respect to the V8 Central Fantasy League.

I am in the closing stages of releasing the groupings for 2019. No later than Saturday it will be out and available.

The format will be much like the past few seasons since I have acquired the helm of this once rudderless ship. Since then, we may not know where we are going, but we will definitely KEEP going. The competition for the overall title/table will begin in Adelaide and the Tournament will commence with Round 2 at Albert Park.

TheArrow will, once again, be in charge of the management of the liveries. All makes and models, that have a "possibility" of being in the actual series, are welcome. We are not limited to Holden, Ford, and Nissan.

So, remain calm and be ready to pounce when the time to pounce comes.

.....to be continued.....

************

16/2:

Rules and registration for the 2019 V8CFL are now posted. You have until MIDNIGHT FRIDAY before Adelaide to enter.

************

17/2:

I have made an amendment to the rules (already). This is to close up a loose end which I kind of forgot about.

With the rules this year allowing unlimited changes in Group F, this opens up the possibility of slipping wildcard teams in and out.

All wildcard teams, no matter WHO they are, will be in Group F. I have added a "write-in" line for those wishing to pursue this option when the time comes down the line. Obviously it would not be wise to choose one for Round 1.

So, if you see the Rules thread time/date of last update changed, that is it.

Thanks.

I should have it out either mid-afternoon Monday, your time, or if not, no later than Tuesday for sure. I hate you guys having to wait, especially on the last round of the year, but I have to get my last Supercars fix in for the year.

Thanks for your patience.


Thank you for all your hard work Mike, we all really appreciate it. Enjoy a few watching the last race of the year

Thanks for your kind words. Your media center liveries are SECOND TO NONE, mate!

And, I did enjoy a few whilst watching. Results to follow soon.

After a nap.

A long nap.

How will the points work? There's technically 3 races over the weekend:

Race 29: Main Driver continuation of the above qualy race
Race 30: The 500

Will we recieve points for Race 28/29 or just 30?
Races 28/29 are just qualifying races, with the combined results deciding the grid for Race 30 (the 500).
It looks like Each of the qualifying races will be worth 25pts each (25 to the winner, 24 to second and so on), with Race 30 worth 250pts.

I can't find any source though... I may be wrong about how the pts divvy up...



Thanks for pointing this out so no one, including myself, would be blindsided.

If a race pays points, the V8CFL will recognize it as a race and pay the points also. Whatever the point system is, we will follow suit as the same.

We will also recognize points paying qually races in the table with Top 5 honors.

************

6/11:

About a day and a half left to prep for Sandown, men. Remember all roster changes have to be submitted by MIDNIGHT THURSDAY SYDNEY, NSW TIME. As of right now I have the only changes submitted.

I will also have Friday - Monday off here at work so the Sandown Results should be out promptly. It is all dependent on when I can get my "source" to get me the races to view this great annual round.

************

8/11:

Today is the first snowfall of the season around my parts. It is also past Midnight Thursday Sydney, NSW time. That means all team rosters are locked in for Sandown. The only changes for this round are my team, R&K Motorsports.

Remember, all three races count for points this weekend and the V8CFL Tournament will be pared down to the final two after Sunday's Enduro.

Good luck to all and I will see you on the other side of the checkers and possibly the snow shovel.

************

12/11:

Haven't forgotten about the Sandown Results, men. I am tallying them right now. Should be out soon. Had to do a landscaping work at V8CFL Headquarters this morning.



Far from the peaceful shores of the fantasy shop at Shelly Beach in NSW....

------------

Later in the day....

Sandown Results are posted.

In the V8CFL, our three podiums were:

Race 1:
1 Sideways Racing / Brightman / Holden Commodore ZB
2 Esurientes Autosports / Esurientes / Nissan GTR
3 151 Motorsport / SportsExtra Motorsport / Nissan Altima L33

Race 2:
1 Ignition Motorsports / ignition / Ford Falcon FG
2 151 Motorsport / SportsExtra Motorsport / Nissan Altima L33
3 Millenial Snowflake Motorsports / tommo11 / Ford Mustang

Race 3 (the big one):
1 Bartsport / adzy B / Infiniti Q60
2 Ignition Motorsports / ignition / Ford Falcon FG
3 All Aussie Racing / ThePhoon / Ford FPV F6

Millenial Snowflake Motorsports and tommo11 still holds the top shelf on the table.


In the V8CFL Tournament, the Championship matchup will be:

MT2 mSPORT v. A-Tech Motorsport


In the V8CFL Enduro Cup, Ain't Care Motorsports (skaifeman) and R&K Motorsports (mikeamerica84) have taken honors. My first trophy!

And in the Open International Enduro Cup, Hiroshima Racing (buzzer) and his Mazda6 have wiped out all.

Now, for both enduro cup contests I have scored all three Sandown Rounds for points. The original rules stated that the Gold Coast Round was to scored as one round, not two individual races. However, the Sandown format caught me out, and to ensure all points were tallied, I scored all three. I did not feel it was fair to give the overall winners only 250 points vice the usual 300 points when other points were given out prior.

On to Newcastle.

************

22/11:

After Midnight in Sydney, men. All team rosters are locked in for the final time. The only changes are Ain't Care Motorsports and skaifeman.

Good luck to all this last round.

Gold Coast Results will be out in the next 24 hours. Heck of a weekend here. I ran into a slab of beer and a heavy set girl. One hit me out of control in the back, the other fell on me.

I won't say which was which but it was great!

************

29/10:

Gold Coast Results are posted men. Sideways Racing took BOTH races and really gave all the business in Race 2.

Podiums:

Race 1:

1  Sideways Racing / Brightman / Holden Commodore ZB
2  Esurientes Autosports / Esurientes / Nissan GTR
3  Millenial Snowflake Motorsports / tommo11 / Ford Mustang


Race 2:

1  Sideways Racing / Brightman / Holden Commodore ZB
2  GoGetEm Racing / Professor / Holden Commodore ZB
3  McG Motorsport / DanMcG / Hyundai Excel X3


As for the Table, Millenial Snowflake Motorsports and tommo11 have taken charge.

In the Tournament, we are now down to four teams:

McG Motorsport
MT2 mSPORT
Scott Morrison Motorsports
A-Tech Motorsport

In the V8CFL Enduro Cup, A-Tech Motorsport and McG Motorsport command the table.

And in the Open International Enduro Cup, our new unknown entity, Hiroshima Racing with Team Principal buzzer and his Mazda6 have won the Gold Coast round to match their win in the Bathurst round. A tough team they are.

As for the Stewards Summary, it is pretty much a done deal with all penalties dished out during the two races. No post race point deductions.

See you all next at Sandown.

Spoilers spoiled.

Past Thursday Midnight in Sydney. All team rosters are locked in for the Gold Coast weekend. Good luck to all. Keep your pants nearby, at least.

A little Tournament matching. Here are the roster differences, minus the Group F tiebreaking cars, for all four matchups. All other cars are a wash for mano-o-mano competition of the sort. As you can see it will come down to only two cars in three of the four matchups:

McG Motorsport (8-2)                   v.  Blokes Advice Racing (6-4)
9                                          55  
2                                          18


A-Tech Motorsport (6-4)                v.  7 Eleven Mobil 1 Racing (6-4)
88                                         9
18                                         2
6                                          22
8                                          99


All Aussie Racing (6-4)                v.  MT2 mSPORT (5-5)
55                                         12
23                                         6

Scott Morrison Motorsports (7-3)       v.  R&K Motorsports (6-4)
2                                          18
99                                         5


I'll catch you all on the other side of the checkers.

We had to watch the race 'analogue' style. Just the old-fashioned TV.



Oh, I guess that's how it goes some times. Nothing is fool proof when it comes to the net. What a time to go down though, eh? Bathurst.

I am halfway through watching it download style. I had to get some shut eye at 12:30 a.m. last night.

Thanks for the updates.

************

15/10:

Bathurst Results are posted. Bear in mind they are UNOFFICIAL until the ruling for a possible penalty for the 12 car, which will be decided the weekend of the Gold Coast Round. Please refer to the Bathurst Stewards Summary thread for more detail.

However for now, the Bathurst podium is:

1 Ignition Motorsports / ignition / Ford Falcon FG
2 ITR Mugen / Infamous / Honda NSX
3 Legocy Racing / Lanky1 / Ford Mustang

ITR Mugen has also muscled their way to the top of the table with this round result.

In the Tournament, the Regular Season has come to an end. The Post Season for eight teams commences at the Gold Coast.

Tiebreakers decided the final berth wherein MT2 mSPORT pipped Ain't Care Motorsports with a greater margin of victory throughout the year. Both had 180 point wins during the season, but MT2 mSPORT's 156 point win in Round 12 (Bathurst) sealed the deal for the second best point margin. ITR Mugen was also in the hunt with the same W-L records, but their greatest margin of victory was 177 points, so they came home third there.

Four of the seven Moffat Division teams made it though.

In the V8CFL Enduro Cup, the combined teams of ITR Mugen and 7 Eleven Mobil 1 Racing have taken the early lead with their Bathurst win.

In the Open International Enduro Cup, it is buzzer and his Hiroshima Racing camp getting the jump.

Next up: Gold Coast AND the stewards findings from Bathurst. Everything is UNOFFICIAL until then, men.

************

18/10:

Just looking at the table and any adjustments having to be made if the 12 car will be excluded from the Bathurst Round (just speculating, of course):

Only two teams have the 12 car on their roster, despite their success this year. Those two teams are:

Shogun Autosport, &
MT2 mSPORT

So table-wise, they could take hits and others move on up some spots.

Now Tournament-wise, as MT2 mSPORT got into the Post Season, based on their individual Bathurst win, as the last team based on W-L records, believe-it-or-not these two teams actually RACED each other for the Bathurst Round. So no matter WHAT the 12 car outcome will be, it will be a wash for both teams and MT2 mSPORT will hold their position as they will still win their match for the weekend.

All speculation, though, men. We'll see what happens in the weeks to come.

I tell you boys, these Virgin Supercars officials are testing my temper these past few rounds with these Safety Car shenanigans.

************

20/10:

All tables have been updated with the post-Bathurst CAMS decisions, men.

The 12 car will receive no (zero) points. All others behind that car who scored will be moved up one place in the final table and given the applicable points. The V8CFL recognizes all of the points penalties thrown at the 12 car as noted in the Stewards Summary wherein there were both driver points deducted and moreso, team points deducted.

https://www.cams.com.au/media/news/detail/2019/10/20/cams-stewards-hand-down-bathurst-verdict

What does this affect?

In the V8CFL, MT2 mSPORT and Shogun Autosport take the biggest hits, for they are the only two teams with the 12 car on their rosters. Some members move up, some move down, some stay the same.

7 Eleven Mobil 1 Racing loses their 5th place finish and drops to 6th. R&K Motorsports moves from 6th to 5th. Sorry, Craig. Believe me, I hate to do have to do these things and actually come out ahead in the process.

In the Tournament, no race results for Bathurst were affected, so everyone's W-L record is the same. The point spreads have changed a bit, but with respect to the tiebreaker for getting MT2 mSPORT into the post season, nothing was affected. They still have the upper hand with the tiebreaker.

The V8CFL Enduro Cup and the Open International Enduro Cup tables have also been changed. There were some slight ups and downs for a few involved. No one had the 12 car entered for Bathurst in the Open International Enduro Cup, but subsequent point shuffling of the other cars DID affect some outcomes and placings. In the V8CFL Enduro Cup, the teams associated with Shogun Autosport and MT2 mSPORT were hit the hardest.

I hope we never meet on these terms again. On the BRIGHT side they did not wait until NEXT weekend to rule on this controversy.

Please check your scores to back me up.
