    Fgp 2017

    Hello and once again welcome to FGP!
    This is the 2017 edition and as usual if you wish to join please observe the following:


    All teams have a budget of 48,000,000.
    To complete the team, please pick three drivers (two official drivers and a 3rd driver), a chassis and a team engine.
    A list of drivers, chassis and engines, with their relative prices can be found below.
    Two of the three drivers must come from this price list.
    The third driver choice, which costs 1m, is any driver that does not appear on the price list.
    Finally, pick a bonus GP which will score double points for the team at that race.
    Once complete please choose a name for your team and then post your entry here.

    Price list and the complete rules can be found here: Fantasy Grand Prix

    Thank you for reading and I hope we see you in our happy little fantasy game!

    POSF1 Scraps Launch After Car Failure

    Today, POSF1 have cancelled their planned unveiling of the POSF1-10 due to car problems.
    "Today's engine problems for Fernando Alonso and poor lap times by STR have caused us to rethink our entrant for 2017" stated EJ Roller, team principal at POSF1. "We now have to go back to the office and further discuss what our entrant is going to consist of." Roller further stated.

    "I am very disappointed with Honda" Alonso stated. "I have a good chance to join a winning organization and Honda screwed it up!"

    There is currently no time table for POSF1's launch date.

    Aki Racing team yet to reveal anything

    Aki Racing Team are yet to reveal there launch date but rumours are circulating that the team may have a change of sponsorship for 2017.

    The team is entering their sixth season of FGP and have had varying success in those years. Lets look back at the teams history.

    The story started in 2011 when the team failed to meet the deadline for entering the 2011 FGP season. Following a season of testing and work on team structure 2012 saw the team make a debut.

    2012 saw Aki Racing Team (ART) unable to gain sponsorship before the season started. Thus running on low funds the team struggled at the start of the season. However enjoyed a good run and finishing 32nd of 55 entries in year 1 was a solid start to life midfield.

    2013 arrived and sponsorship in the shape of Hedgehog gutter brush. Forming the new look Aki's Hedgehog Racing Team. (AHRT) The team spent big on drivers securing Jenson Button & Valterri Bottas. However spending on high rated drivers lead to a Sauber chassis which endured an average season, coupled with Bottas Williams being poor and the Mercedes engine couldn't save the season. 2013 ended with AHRT finishing the season in 43rd of 46.

    2014 arrived and with Hedgehog still in the name the AHRT aimed high with a Mercedes engine. However the Mclaren engine was a let down. Ricciardo was a top first driver but Maldonado added very little. However after the terrible backmarker season of 2013, it was a relief for the team to secure a midfield position of 15th of 32.

    2015 arrived with a new sponsorship. Twix bringing money to ART. Making them Twix's Aki Racing Team (TART) and finally the team leapt into Championship contention. Raikkonen, Gutierrez, Ferrari and Mercedes gave the team a real shot. The TART narrowly missed out on the title to Henners F1. Finishing 2015 as runners up.

    After the highs of 2015, 2016 was a disappointment. Once again Twix offered partnership. Mercedes & Ferrari were good performers again but Alonso & Gutierrez let the team down. Finishing 9th of 27 was a let down.

    So what will 2017 hold for ART? We will find out over the next couple of weeks.
