Rules of game

Circuit

Each circuit is characterised by an univocal identification number (ID), by a length and a percentage of height differences and bends. Furthermore a circuit can be urban or located in the country: in an urban circuit it's more difficult to overtake and the risk of making a mistake is greater. It's possible to project your own circuit in a different place (city or country) paying a fixed figure for the project. Some weather forecasts are associated to each circuit and at every weather updating they will be updated in the circuit page for qualification, for race and also for the rest of the week (useful for the contest and the private tests). As time goes by asphalt and stands deteriorate. This leads to a greater wear and tear of some components and a decrease in the crowd. It's possible to order workers to rearrange the circuit, this requires variable costs. The inclination percentage of the circuit indicates the quantity of subsidences, slopes and descents in the course of a race. The bend percentage approximately indicates how many bends a circuit has. The closer it is to 0% the closer the circuit resembles an oval. Furthermore in this page the total seats what with stands, grass seats and vip seats in the sport facility are shown. At the beginning the total seats for the public are 5.000 which are divided in this way:

Grass Seats: 2.750
Bend Stands: 1.500
Straight Stands: 500
Vip Seats: 250

At any time you are allowed to ask for an estimate to extend the seats number in the sport facility.The construction costs for each single seat are fixed and are the following:

Grass Seats: 52
Bend Stands: 122
Straight Stands: 245
Vip Seats: 350


Ticket prices of each sector are the following:

Grass Seats: 12
Bend Stands: 18
Straight Stands: 30
Vip Seats: 45

The public will tend to fill seats according to their cost: there will be a greater request for the grass seats and less for vip seats

Pitlane
The pitlane is the lane which is parallel to the arrival straight stretch where there are pits. You have the possibility to construct the pitlane as you like (which is 500 m by default) between a minimum of 400 m and a maximum of 700 m. The strategic importance of the pitlane is related to the fact that the longer it is, the more time you need to go along it and so the longer the pitstop will be. The speed with which you can go along the pitlane is more or less fixed. In fact, the difference of speed with which a driver will tend to go along this lane depends on the driver's recklessness. A daredevil driver will go along it with a greater speed than a timorous one.

Costs for circuit and pitlane change

Costs depend on how much you will move away from the previous project. You will pay more if you pass from a circuit with 60% bends to a circuit with 0% rather than from a circuit 60% to 58%. It's possible to change bends inclinations and circuit length not more than twice per season

Costs of circuit:
% Bends: 1000 * %different Bends from the previous one
% Inclination: 1000 * %different Inclination from the previous one
mt. Length: 40 * mt. different length from the previous one

Costs of pitlane:
mt. Length: 200 * mt. different length from the previous one

You aren't allowed to make changes of any type concerning the circuit if the cost of these operations (also counting the pending offers for drivers or offers both in entrance and in exit) causes your estimated availability to go under the amount of - 200.000 .

Record time on the circuit:
You can see the record time on the page which describes the circuit in details, and it can be set during the qualifications, the races, the weekly competitions, the contest or ordinary tests. If the owner changes the trail of the circuit, the record time of the racetrack set before the modification is invalidated but still saved and available to be consulted.
