Each V8CFL member chooses the allotted number of cars per group (six total). You will also choose a car manufacturer for your team. PLEASE USE THE 2018 TEAM REGISTRATION THREAD TO DO THIS.

17 Scott McLaughlin
97 Shane van Gisbergen
Group B (Choose 1):
5 Mark Winterbottom
12 Fabian Coulthard

Manufacturer (Choose 1):
Now open for any type of proper model/make for our series and not limited to what is currently run (Ford, Holden, Nissan)
Throughout the season, a maximum of FOUR car changes will be allowed. These changes can be made at any time. Car changes made prior to Midnight Thursday prior to the upcoming weekend round will go into effect for that round. Changes after Midnight Thursday, Sydney, NSW time, will go into effect for the next round. Sydney, NSW time, will be used for he V8CFL with respect to time stamps for all rounds.
Car changes must be made within the same group.
Points are scored by cars – not drivers. For example, if you have Car 18 on your team, Lee Holdsworth is the driver to start Clipsal with. If he vacates Car 18, for whatever reason, and a replacement driver takes over, you will still have Car 18 on your team. If Holdsworth subsequently starts driving Car 21, and you do not have Car 21 on your team, you do not have Holdsworth as a driver. You still have Car 18 unless you change cars in that group. Car 18 gets you points. Car 21 does not – unless you make a change to pick up that car in that group.
For Enduro rounds, whoever pairs up with the drivers in your cars, is on your team, but the car still gets the points – whoever is driving.
Please use the applicable Team Registration thread to make changes. Do not PM me with them. I want everything out in the open for all to see.
Points and scoring:
Each RACE will be scored for points again, like last season.
New: The Melbourne 400 AGP Round will be a points scoring round this year just as it will in the actual Supercars series. This differs from years’ past. This is a four race round, too.
Whatever points per race the V8 Supercars are issuing for that given race, the V8CFL will also issue.
New: For all races, your Top 5 cars will score points this year. Your sixth car is a “throwaway”.
For the Melbourne 400 AGP Round, your Bottom 5 cars will be scored. Subsequently, your sixth car will be your top car (which will not count for points). Therefore, if you DNF a car, it will be scored as zero points for we will score the Bottom 5 cars.
For the three Enduro Rounds, all SIX cars will be scored.
All ties will be broken using the following formula:
1) Highest finishing car obtaining points from the race.
2) If tied, second highest, and so on until tie broken.
3) If tied after Top 5 cars, the sixth car will be used. If tiebreaking cars are DNFs, the highest placed DNF will prevail.
Exceptions are the two Melbourne 400 AGP Round short races and the three Enduro Rounds. In the former races, the Bottom 5 cars will be scored and the tiebreaker will be the unscored (top car) for those races. In the latter races, all six cars will be scored.
4) If tied after all six cars (i.e. identical teams) the team lowest on the table will prevail. If teams are identical going into season, a coin flip will by utilized to determine the who prevails for the first race.
All members joining late, or mid-season, will receive last place points for the previous rounds missed in an order to blend into the table more smoothly.
PENALTIES: Any points penalties levied against any team or driver by V8 Supercars will be fully recognized by the V8CFL. Said penalty, however, must be assessed due to a violation during a race, or post race inspection.
If a penalty is levied against a driver or team for a rules violation during qualification, practice, or something bizarre such as a pit garage fight/scuffle, the V8CFL will NOT recognize the penalty. It must be directly related to the racing, or race incident.
2018 V8CFL and 2018 V8CFL Tournament:
The V8CFL portion will pretty much be like last season with the exception of the rule changes (above).
The V8CFL Tournament portion will be the same format. There are 18 teams this year, split into three divisions. It will be separate contest from the Table.
To note how this will look, just check out any professional sport from the USA – the NFL, NBA, NHL, etc. Teams are broken down into divisions and conferences.
Everyone will race a specific V8CFL member one v. one each round. We will keep W-L records. You will race each team in your respective division once. The other rounds/races will be against teams from outside of your division.
The last three rounds will be the Playoffs - Gold Coast, Pukekohe, and Newcastle. The Top 2 in each division will qualify for the Playoffs. The next best two W-L records will also qualify as wild card teams, making a group of eight for the post season.
If overall W-L records are tied the tiebreakers will be as follows:
1 - Best Division W-L record
2 - Largest points differential in any Regular Season race
If individual round matchups are tied, the highest point total of any race will decide the winner. If it is an Enduro round, highest finishing car.
The Clipsal Round will once again NOT be part of the Tournament but the AGP Round WILL be this year. I am leaving Clipsal out due to people signing up at the last minute. Once the season starts, the Tournament schedule can be created and started with Round 2.
Tournament scores will only utilize the cars which score V8CFL points from each race, totaled together for a final score. Each race will accumulate points, but the overall ROUND score will be the final score for that weekend. So, the bottom line is whatever your V8CFL bag of points that all of your drivers score for the given round, THAT is your point total in the Tournament.
The Tournament will have an even number of teams. I have subsequently removed myself from this comp due to an odd number of teams this year. I am okay with this, guys.
The Arrow will be in charge of this department for 2018. His rules will be posted.
Please feel free to ask questions on this thread, and this thread only, so all rules/points breakdowns will be clear to all. Chances are, if YOU have a question, someone else has the same question. Ask.
There will be some bumps in the road and rules clarifications to be made, but we will see it through. I reserve the right for final say in rules.
So, in conclusion:
V8CFL: Each RACE will be scored for points this year, like last year. Top 5 cars (out of your six) will count for points for all races EXCEPT AGP Round and the three Enduro Rounds. For the AGP races, the Bottom 5 cars will be scored. Your sixth car (highest finisher) is a throwaway but may be used for a tiebreaker. For the Enduros, all six cars will be scored. Only four car changes all season.
V8CFL Tournament: Top 5 cars each race will score points with the exception of the AGP Round wherein the Bottom 5 will score, and the Enduro Rounds where all six cars will score, but total ROUND points for all rounds will be used for final tally and to determine round victor. Hence you will either win or lose only once per round.
Thank you for participating in 2018. Deadline for signup is MIDNIGHT FRIDAY NIGHT PRIOR TO CLIPSAL.
