Hi Managers,
Firstly, I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and extra time with their loved ones.

I can announce now that the next update with engine suppliers is set for a January release. In the last developer blog I mentioned that more details would be released nearer the time, so here are a few more insights in to what will be in this update:


  • Driver special abilities - This will include 'qualifying', 'street circuit' and 'wet weather' specialist abilities. Drivers will have an edge in conditions that highlight their special ability.

  • Driver BMI - Replacing the current primitive 'weight' calculations, drivers will have a BMI (Body Mass Index) value, calculated using their height and weight. They will perform best when their BMI is at the optimal ratio.

  • Driver's 'favourite circuit' - As with special abilities, each driver will have a favourite circuit where they excel.



Along with the ability to become an engine manufacturer, these represent a lot of new performance factors to manage, and should really spice up the racing.

If you read my blog, you will know that I anticipated the update arriving sooner, but these things are always hard to predict whilst in development. The strangest things that have nothing to do with development can impact development timelines. This has been a challenging year for us, and for a few months now, I've been the only developer. I thought all possible setbacks were behind me at the time of the last blog, but life found a way to introduce a bunch more. I've maintained development throughout and largely navigated these matters, so now and my focus returns to finalising this update and preparing it for beta testing. The update is in a working state on my development server, so with some finishing touches it will be ready for beta testing soon.

Wishing you all a Happy Christmas, New Year and some great racing this winter!

Will driver abilities and favourite circuit be displayed while they are in the youth academy?

Pretty sure everyone will. It'll just be a case of what.

A great development, but I would really be happy with a safety car or Virtual Safety cars…

What about the Finish Error? Can that be fixed as well?  I've mention about it before.
Last lap, your 1st car crossing the line, the camera switches view from your 2nd car to the 1st car and you completely loose control over the 2nd car.
Can't go back (switch button disappears). Terrible Error.

Didn't they add safety cars and VSC before but it was pretty bad and resulted in alot of people disliking it and VSC and Safety being removed?

Fix the delta. Having faster laps must be presented with a minus - not a plus +

Good question

Nice really good work!

I wouldn’t say there is a problem with the weight system at the moment. The weight is the only thing that really matters at the end of the day from a performance perspective. A short and fat person could be overweight, thus having a bad BMI, but weigh less than a skinny tall person with a good BMI could slow the car down less despite weighing more. Have I explained myself well?

Is that how it is being implemented or does it work differently?

There should be a special edition Jack Basford driver, 1,68m tall, that we can buy in the shop, and race with! 😊 I promise to train him to the 'optimal BMI' and not feed him too many hamburgers 🍔🍔
