Welcome to the 2020 V8 Central Fantasy League.

Each V8 Central Fantasy League member will choose the allotted number of cars per group (nine total – eight choices). You will also choose a car manufacturer for your team. You will note that not all cars/drivers are listed. For Group A, you must choose one of the PAIR of drivers – 12/17 or 88/97.


Group A (Choose 1 combined pair – 2 cars):

17/12  Scott McLaughlin & Fabian Coulthard
97/88  Shane van Gisbergen & Jamie Whincup

Group B (Choose 1):

9   David Reynolds
25  Chaz Mostert

Group C (Choose 2):

5   Lee Holdsworth
6   Cam Waters
23  Will Davison
44  James Courtney
99  Anton de Pasquale

Group D (Choose 2):

7   Andre Heimgartner
15  Rick Kelly
18  Mark Winterbottom
20  Scott Pye

Group E - Tiebreaker Cars (Choose 2):

8   Nick Percat
14  Todd Hazelwood
19  James Courtney Alex Davison
55  Jack Le Brocq

Group F – Second Flight Tiebreaker Cars (Choose ALL 6 in your preferred order):

2   Bryce Fullwood
3   Macauley Jones
4   Jack Smith
22  Chris Pither
34  Zane Goddard/Jake Kostecki
35  Garry Jacobson

Manufacturer (Choose 1):

Open to ANY type of proper model/make for our series and not limited to what is currently run, that being Ford or Holden.

Throughout the season:

A maximum of FOUR car changes (total) will be allowed in Groups A through D. For Group A, changing your pair would result in ONE change, not two.

A maximum of TWO changes will be allowed in Group E.

Unlimited changes/mixing your order of preference) are allowed in Group F.

Changes can be made at any time. Car changes made prior to Midnight Thursday Sydney, NSW time 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 23 on your team, Will Davison is that driver to start Adelaide with. If he vacates Car 23, for whatever reason, and another driver takes over, you will still have Car 23 on your team. If Davison subsequently starts driving Car 99, and you do not have Car 99 on your team, you do not have Davison as a driver. You still have Car 23 unless you change cars in that respective group. Car 23 gets you points. Car 99 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. For non-enduro rounds, your total points tally from all of your Group A through Group D cars will be used to determine where you finish for the given race.

Based on your total points, you will be placed in a finishing position/order. Whatever points per race the Virgin Australia Supercars are issuing for that given race, the V8CFL will also issue, based upon where you finished with your total point tally. For example, winners will receive either 300, 150, or 75 points.

For non-enduro rounds, only your seven cars associated with Groups A though D will score points.

Your two cars in Group E will be utilized for tiebreaking purposes. They will not score points in non-enduro rounds. Hence, if there are participants tied in points after all seven Group A through D cars are scored, the highest finisher in Group E will break the tie. It does not matter where your Groups A through D cars finish, Group E will decide the tie. Each participant will have two cars in Group E so there is a high probability the tie WILL be broken here.

If there are identical team rosters, Group F will then be used to break the ties. Your six Group F cars will be placed in any order you wish, 1-6. The 1 car will be your first tiebreaker. Your 2 car the second, and so on.

For Enduro Rounds, ALL Group A through E cars will be scored, with Group F finishers breaking ties with the preferred order being used.

Sometimes teams change car numbers for various purposes. A change in car number from 17 to 300, for example, does not exclude the 17 Car from scoring. It will be recognized without saying that the 300 Car is/was/will be the 17 Car and scored accordingly.

Tiebreakers (in conclusion):

All ties will be broken using the following formula:

Non-Enduro Rounds/Races:

1) Highest finishing Group E car (points-wise) in race.

2) If tied, second highest finishing Group E car (points-wise).

3) If the applicable Group E cars do NOT break the tie (both cars the same on each team), the highest finishing Group A through D car (points-wise) will then break the tie. If that is a tie, the second highest (points-wise), and so on until the tie is broken.

4) If prior to a racing weekend, if two teams form identical team rosters (all nine cars the same), Group F will break the tie with the cars in a preferred order.

The first car choice of the tied participants will break the tie. If those are the same cars, the second, and so on until broken. I reserve the right to change the car orders in Group F if need be.

Enduro Rounds/Races:

Same as above with the exception of Group E will score points and Group F would become the tiebreaking group. The first car choice of the tied participants will break the tie. If those are the same cars, the second, and so on until broken. I reserve the right to change the car orders in Group F if need be.

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 Virgin Australia 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.

2020 V8CFL and 2020 V8CFL Tournament:

The V8CFL portion will be like last season with the exception of the car selection process and the rule changes (above).

The V8CFL Tournament portion will be the same format. The number of teams and division alignment will depend on how many members we have in 2020.

To inform any NEW members as to how this will look, just check out last year’s Tournament format.

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 Group A through D Cars score for the given ROUND, that is your point total in the Tournament. Group E cars are for tiebreaking purposes and will not score points.

The last few rounds will be the Playoffs. The number of the Playoff rounds will vary dependent upon how many teams are in the Tournament. The qualification for the Playoffs will be determined once how many teams are entered has been finalized, based upon W-L records.

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
3 - Second 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 tied after that, or it is an Enduro Round (one race), the V8CFL Table tiebreaking formula will be utilized. For non-Enduro Rounds, Race 1 will decide the tiebreaker. If tied after that, Race 2, and so on.

The Adelaide Round will once again NOT be part of the Tournament. The AGP Round will kickoff the 2020 Tournament. Again, I am leaving Adelaide out due to people signing up at the last minute. Once the season starts, the Tournament will commence with Round 2 at Albert Park. Divisional alignment and placing will be determined by the Adelaide results – top-to-bottom.


Media Center:

The Arrow will be in charge of this department for 2020. 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.

I reserve the right for final say in rules.


In conclusion for 2020:

V8CFL: Each race will be scored for points. For non-enduro rounds Group A through D cars (seven total) count for points. Group E will not. Group F will be used if identical team rosters are present. For Enduro Rounds, all Group A through E cars score points. Group F will be used to break ties

Group E will be used as part of the tiebreaking formula this year (reference above). If Group E does not break the tie, then we will revert back the highest finishing of the Group A through D cars will become the tiebreaker. If identical teams, We resort to Group F.

V8CFL Tournament: The given cars each race will score points. 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.

You are allowed FOUR changes total in Groups A through D. Any change in Group A only counts as one change as the cars are paired.

You are also allowed TWO changes in Group E – the tiebreakers.

You are allowed UNLIMITED changes in Group F with respect to reshuffling your six car order top-to-bottom.


Thank you for participating in 2020. Deadline for signup is MIDNIGHT FRIDAY SYDNEY, NSW TIME PRIOR TO ADELAIDE.



As we are getting ready to re-start the 2020 campaign, I wanted to bump this thread up to the top to remind all of the rules, specifically the number of changes allowed (four in Groups A-D, two in Group E, and unlimited in Group F), the tiebreakers, the scoring for both non-Enduro and Enduro rounds, James Courtney replacing Will Davison in Group C, and Alex Davison replacing James Courtney in Group E.
