Well now that school is done for a while, I can focus on continuing my never ending concepts for my imaginary country of Tamaria. In case you don't know - which I assume would be most of you - I have an imaginary country designed up complete with nearly everything imaginable. Only recently I have been putting my creation to paper - or digital paper - so it's not complete but the idea is there. For more information, it can be found here. So I've been working on a NASCAR series that runs in the South East (of the world) with a few races in Australia and New Zealand, but its based in Tamaria with a majority of the races occurring there. I figured the best sponsor would be Qantas as it is the most recognizable company from Australia, it provides air services for the series when needed and doesn't conflict with good/services that have many companies (such as a Busch series with Coors Light, Budweiser and Molson cars). Speaking of Alcohol, due to Tamaria's leniency towards Tobacco and Alcohol sponsoring in Motorsports, there will be plenty of popular designs you may remember form decades ago. It is a 33 race season that runs on Thursday nights (because in Tamaria the weekend is Friday and Saturday rather than the traditional Saturday and Sunday) from mid-August to May with the final race being held in the first week of June. There is a 2 week break around Christmas time and occasional bi-weeks. The season is referred to as the starting year - for example, the 2015 season runs from August 2015 to June 2016. The reason for this is because back in the late 70's and 80's when the series was still young, the final race occurred the week after New Years so a majority of the season was in the preceding year. Here is a rough list of the dates and track info. Here is a map of the locations of the track. The actual track designs will be up soon and once complete, I will get to the good stuff - the cars. The tracks are a mix of traditional ovals (D-Oval, Tri-Oval, Quad-Oval, etc) as well as some resurrections and tracks strongly influenced by famous tracks. A little more info regarding the cars... I am planning to have about 50 or so cars even though the field is 42 cars. The cars will have 2-3 different schemes per driver. Most of the number logos are the same from Sprint Cup. Race teams are made up of a minimum of 2 drivers and maximum of 4 drivers. Each team must run the same manufacturer and other teams running the same manufacturer are considered semi-teammates and often use tactics to help each other out as there is a bonus for the manufacturer with the most points. Cars will run in a V6 or V8 class. Specs remain the same, I just felt it was more appropriate for those companies with existing V6's and I6's to use their respective displacements. The race in Thornhill features all throwback or fauxback liveries on the cars. Some teams opt to use different sponsors. The race is called Throwback Thursday at Thornhill and is where the term "Throwback Thursday" originated from Cars: V8's Ford Taurus SHO Chevrolet Lumina SS (Chevrolet SS) Holden Commodore SS Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Jaguar XKR V6's Subaru Impreza WRX Nissan GT-R R35 Audi S5 BMW M4 and here is a timeline for all the cars ever used in the Qantas series since its foundation in 1978. I know there is probably a lot I'm missing, it is a big task especially considering it's based in a fictional place so if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.
