Market

MyGPTeam market is based on a dual system. When a team decides to sell a driver or a car component, the "MyGPTeam market committee" makes an average quote based on the latest auctions held by teams on similar drivers and components. Should the quote be higher than the costs the team actually incurs, (for example repair costs or termination of the contract as for the driver, added to potential capital gain expenses) if the team confirms, the committee will automatically purchase the driver or the component. Once the driver or component is at the committee's disposal, it will be put back on sale with a starting price equal to zero, to allow the teams to bid to purchase it, should they be interested. A driver or a component can stay on the market no longer than 2 days starting from the moment the committee puts them on sale. At the end of the auction the driver or the component is sold to the highest bidder. If there are no bids, it will be put back onto the market an additional two times before being permanently removed. The minimum raising is of 1.000 水 and you can't offer less than 2 % of the reached figure. If you offer in 3 minutes before the auction expires of a driver/component, the auction will be prolonged by 3 minutes. The name of the bidder will be hidden by the system. The auction end doesn't exactly coincide with the passing of driver/component to the new team: you need to wait for an updating which occurs periodically during the day. On the day of the qualification, the committee will not purchase any driver or component, starting from one hour before the beginning of the ranking to 30 minutes after the beginning of the qualification. Similarly on the day of the race, the committee will not purchase any driver or component, starting from one hour before the beginning of the race to 30 minutes after the beginning of the race. If the auction ends when login limits (due to high user traffic) are active, the auction end will be moved forward automatically by the same number of hours of login limits interval. In order to make an offer for a component or a driver you have to make sure that the estimated availability added to the present pending offers (both in entrance and in exit) never goes under the amount of -100.000 or you are not allowed to make further offers.

Drivers market The seller will be given by the MyGPTeam market committee a quote equivalent to the driver's market value compared with other similar transfers. Costs for potential penalties due to early termination of the drivers' contract will be deducted from the quote provided by the market committee. The committee will purchase only if the quote is not lower than the expenses the team has to incur for the termination of the contract added to potential capital gain costs. If selling the driver to the market committee implies a capital gain compared to the previous purchase made by the team, a penalty will be paid according to the time spent by the driver in the team on the basis of the following chart:

Between 1 and 7 duration days in the team 100 % of the possible capital gain
Between 7 and 14 duration days in the team 85 % of the possible capital gain
Between 14 and 21 duration days in the team 65 % of the possible capital gain
Between 21 and 28 duration days in the team 50 % of the possible capital gain
Between 28 and 35 duration days in the team 30 % of the possible capital gain
Between 35 and 42 duration days in the team 15 % of the possible capital gain
After 42 days in the team or if the driver is hired through the observatories or from the free drivers market or if no capital gain is made, the total amount agreed can be collected, except for other deductions due to the termination of the contract.

If a team sells a driver who hadn't been discovered by its talent scouts, the original team that had discovered him gets an extra 5% of the selling price (that is to say not reduced from the price) only if it is the committee to sell the driver to another team.

Components market The seller will get from the MyGPTeam market committee a quote equivalent to the market value of the component compared to other similar transfers. Costs for potential repair of the component will be deducted from the quote provided by the market committee. The committee will purchase only if the quote is not lower than the expenses the team has to incur for the repair added to potential capital gain costs. After the component has been purchased, the committee will repair it before putting it on sale. If selling the component to the market committee implies a capital gain compared to the previous purchase made by the team, a penalty will be paid according to the time the component remained in the team on the basis of the following chart:

Between 1 and 7 duration days in the team 100 % of the possible capital gain
Between 7 and 14 duration days in the team 85 % of the possible capital gain
Between 14 and 21 duration days in the team 65 % of the possible capital gain
Between 21 and 28 duration days in the team 50 % of the possible capital gain
Between 28 and 35 duration days in the team 30 % of the possible capital gain
Between 35 and 42 duration days in the team 15 % of the possible capital gain
After 42 days in the team or if the component comes from the laboratory or if no capital gain is made, the total amount agreed can be collected, except for other deductions due to the repair of the component.

If a team sells a component built in another laboratory, the original team that built it gets an extra 2% of the selling price (that is to say not reduced from the price) only if it is the committee that sells the component to another team. The original team who had built the component will always be able to sell its skills until its destruction.

We remind you that in the case of the breakdown of the site, transfers will not be delayed, shifted or cancelled.
