The place for current RWRS universe and "canon" historical series
by tommykl 27 Jun 2021, 10:29
It’s been a while.

After a couple of years where work got more of my attention and running these races took more and more time, this series went on an unannounced hiatus. The forum outage didn’t help, nor did some issues with deteriorating mental health. And yet, the forum bounced back, and I found myself with four months of gardening leave in which I could work on some projects. So I refreshed my VBA skills and bodged together a way to automate these races and make the whole thing smoother.

To cut a long story short, it’s back.

Now that all I have to do is put one number in rather than painstakingly format everything and edit the post, this should take up less of my time.

Core game mechanics are currently unchanged, though this could eventually be amended as my free time and creativity continue to evolve in the coming months. I’m especially thinking of including modifiers for front vs rear-engined cars, as well as grip-limited vs power-limited circuits. The “in the news” and “currently winning elsewhere” segments will sadly be significantly reduced (if not completely cut) as they took up a lot of my time.

Aside from all that, we have a lot to catch up on. First things first: who’s coming back, and who are they taking on?

I am back!

My focus will be on:

Image British Racing Partnership
We'll be continuing to actually try to do well (but also occasionally do wacky things with spare bits of engine)

Image Scuderia Arzani-Volpini
Continuing the tradition of entering Luigi Piotti into the Italian Grand Prix in something borrowed and Italian

Image Honoré Wagner
Will also continue the quest to have Honoré Wagner carney himself to greatness after the encouragement of him qualifying for the Belgian GP last year

I'll keep Reg Parnell racing 'existing' for now, but that team doesn't have much life in it.

I will also make Ecurie Maarsbergen a proper privateer.

My plan is really to just take on a few smaller teams that don't have a long lifespan (genre LDS, Gilby, Ferguson, Scirocco, etc.) for a while until Matra becomes available some day. I will start this plan with running the Fry team.

I don't know what i want and i want it now!

Good to see you back Tommy!

I would like to inquire about Carroll Shelby running a part-time team after a decent performance at the end of last season, and perhaps the odd one-off entry or three across the season. I do hope to get control of Eagle in the future, but that is a long ways off.

January 9th 1959 - New Zealand Grand Prix qualifying

Those two months sure felt like two years, didn't they? Oh well, we've got a Grand Prix to get to. This non-championship race with reduced purse hasn't attracted that big an entry list, but that hasn't stopped some big teams from making the trip out of principle. Locals have also decided to leave this one be, preferring the Formula Libre event held on the same day. Nonetheless, 15 drivers have appeared and all will therefore start the race. The only stakes here are bragging rights and an advantage for tomorrow's race.

1. Jim Russell (British Racing Partnership) - Cooper T45 chassis 3, BRM P26 engine 5
2. Chan Lye Choon (Chan Lye Choon) - B.C.M.A. C-01 chassis 3, O.S.C.A. 1557 engine 3
3. Hernando da Silva Ramos (Scuderia Centro-Sud) - O.S.C.A. F158 chassis 10, O.S.C.A. 1558 engine 14
4. Consalvo Sanesi (Scuderia Centro-Sud) - O.S.C.A. F158 chassis 9, O.S.C.A. 1558 engine 13
5. André Guelfi (Scuderia Ugolini) - B.C.M.A. C-01.EX chassis 3, Ugolini 1-58 engine 1
6. Reg Parnell (Reg Parnell Racing) - Cooper T45 chassis 5, Climax FPF IV engine 4
7. José Froilán González (Rob Walker Racing) - Lotus 12 chassis 5, O.S.C.A. 1558 engine 6
8. Dan Gurney (Rob Walker Racing) - O.S.C.A. F156A chassis 5, O.S.C.A. 1558 engine 7
9. Alan Stacey (Owen Racing Organisation) - B.C.M.A. RP.1001 chassis 1, B.C.M.A. A/AS Wyvern engine 2
10. Peter Collins (Scuderia Ferrari) - Ferrari 246 chassis 1, Ferrari 143 engine 1
11. Umberto Magioli (Scuderia Ferrari) - Ferrari 246 chassis 2, Ferrari 143 engine 2
12. Phil Hill (Scuderia Ferrari) - Ferrari 246 chassis 3, Ferrari 143 engine 3
14. Ross Jensen (Scuderia Ferrari) - Ferrari 801 chassis 1, Ferrari 143 engine 4
15. Stan Jones (Stan Jones) - Lotus 12 chassis 1, B.C.M.A. A/AS Wyvern B engine 1
16. Roy Salvadori (Vandervell Products Ltd.) - Vanwall VW58 chassis 1, Vanwall VE2 engine 5

  • Jim Russell and British Racing Partnership didn't have the best experience in 1958 despite making the grid more often than not. This is a good opportunity for them to kick start the new year.
  • Chan Lye Choon first tasted Formula 1 at the 1955 Singapore Grand Prix, but now he's won the Macau Grand Prix, he's hoping to have a second bite in this lower-scope event. This time, he's got an old B.C.M.A. and a newer O.S.C.A. engine to help.
  • Scuderia Centro Sud had a great season in 1958, capped with two podiums from Hernando da Silva Ramos and André Guelfi. Both of them are present in Ardmore, albeit Guelfi in the underpowered Ugolini machine. Instead, the second Centro Sud entry is entrusted to Consalvo Sanesi, the former title contender who is slowly switching his attentions to GT racing.
  • Reg Parnell is another man who's seen better days. Now 47 years old, he's finally accepted that his affiliation with Maserati is unlikely to lead anywhere and put his eggs in the Cooper T45 basket. With a small entry list, this is a safe place for him to have a good time and consider his options for the coming season.
  • Both Rob Walker and José Froilán González are still jubilant from their long-awaited first victory at Sebring, a triumph they hope to repeat here. To acquire some more experience, Walker has also brought Dan Gurney along in an older O.S.C.A..
  • Alfred Owen also had a successful 1958, scoring a handful of points with Jack Fairman and Alan Stacey. While Fairman is taking some time with his tooling business, Stacey will be there in the usual B.C.M.A..
  • Ferrari is of course the biggest threat here, with a change of trackside management over the off-season. Newly-crowned champion Peter Collins is the obvious favourite this weekend, with Umberto Maglioli and Phil Hill in tow. Local hero Ross Jensen will be the sole Kiwi on the grid, with an older model under him.
  • While neither Lotus nor B.C.M.A. works cars will be in attendance, Australian Stan Jones was able to convince both Colin Chapman and the British government to provide him with a chassis and engine respectively. Suddenly he has a real chance to ruffle some feathers in by far the most competitive car he's had.
  • Tony Vandervell was making it known that he'd likely pull out of F1 if Salvadori did not score a podium at Sebring. When a third place was duly scored, plans changed and the team took their car through the Panama Canal and towards Auckland. Can they carry the momentum into 1959?

I've got a busy week ahead of me so can't guarantee when it'll happen, but it's happening.

Qualifying results
1. José Froilán González (Lotus-O.S.C.A.) - 1:25.04
2. Peter Collins (Ferrari) - 1:25.39
3. Umberto Maglioli (Ferrari) - 1:25.73
4. Roy Salvadori (Vanwall) - 1:26.99
5. Hernando da Silva Ramos (O.S.C.A.) - 1:27.31
6. Phil Hill (Ferrari) - 1:27.70
7. Alan Stacey (B.C.M.A.) - 1:27.75
8. Dan Gurney (O.S.C.A.) - 1:28.09
9. Ross Jensen (Ferrari) - 1:29.11
10. Jim Russell (Cooper-BRM) - 1:30.79
11. Consalvo Sanesi (O.S.C.A.) - 1:31.97
12. Stan Jones (Lotus-B.C.M.A.) - 1:33.87
13. Reg Parnell (Cooper-Climax) - 1:35.30
14. Chan Lye Choon (B.C.M.A.-O.S.C.A.) - 1:37.18
15. André Guelfi (B.C.M.A.-Ugolini) - 1:42.78

Collins, the overwhelming favourite, wasn't able to leave the pits for qualifying until the dying moments. Yet, he still found enough to slot into second place behind González, who set a monstrous lap to take a close-fought pole position. Salvadori was also able to pull out some impressive pace to secure a second row start for Vanwall (ahead of works Ferraris among others). Despite being trusted with the best machinery the United Kingdom has to offer, Stan Jones can only make it to 12th position, presumably a byproduct of lacking the expertise required to effectively assemble the car.
