1979 Alternate BMW M1 Procar Series

Post by Pinkd56 »

As has been rumbled in both the discord and even the mibbit chat several years ago, I'll be running the BMW M1 Procar Series alongside Pasta's Alt-F1 in 1979! (and hopefully 1980!)

The series will follow the 11 European rounds of the Formula One World Championship and will feature drivers from grand prix racing, sportscars, touring cars and beyond!

This will be a quick-sim series using good brother Aislabie's Quick Race Sheet.

THE CARS
All entries will race identical BMW M1 Procars - built by Bob Sparshott's merry band of men at the world famous B&S Fabrications factory in Luton.

THE DRIVERS
The top five eligible qualifiers from the Saturday Formula One qualifying session will automatically gain an entry to the Procar race.

Drivers for Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Renault are not eligible to qualify due to contractual reasons. Likewise, drivers for Michelin-shod teams are also not permitted to race in BMW M1 Procar. Formula One teams who do not wish to have their drivers entered into BMW M1 Procar for whatever reason should inform me.

Outside of the F1 drivers, BMW M1 Procar is fairly open in terms of drivers - fictional drivers must have the DEC holder's permission as per usual. Real life drivers will also be RNGed as per usual.

THE TEAMS
BMW Motorsport will have five cars entered at every race for the aforementioned F1 drivers.
Period accurate sportscar, touring car and junior formulae teams are welcome - as are national BMW importers and fictional teams. Independent owner-drivers are also permitted. Teams may run a maximum of two cars.
Teams are not required to enter every race if they do not wish.

RACE FORMAT
The races will be held on the Saturday of the F1 race weekend and will vary in length but mostly be around thirty minutes long.
Points will be awarded to the top ten finishers on a scale of 20-15-12-10-8-6-4-3-2-1

There are a maximum of 24 cars per round.

CALENDAR
R1 - Jarama, Spain (28 April)
R2 - Zolder, Belgium (12 May)
R3 - Circuit de Monaco, Monaco (26 May)
R4 - Brands Hatch, UK (9 June)
R5 - Imola, Italy (23 June)
R6 - Dijon-Prenois, France (7 July)
R7 - Silverstone, UK (14 July)
R8 - Hockenheimring, West Germany (28 July)
R9 - Österreichring, Austria (11 August)
R10 - Zandvoort, Netherlands (25 August)
R11 - Monza, Italy (1 September)

Leonhard von Gottorp may be bored of Formula One, but that's no reason to not hang around the paddock and give those "Procars" a try. Unless a team desperately wants his services, he will just buy and run his own vehicle.

Furthermore, McLaren will not permit Jacky Ickx to run in the Procar events should he qualify as part of his F1 commitment.

French driver Jacques Clouseau is available and willing to drive for any team willing to take him on. He cites his participation in the 1978 Canadian Grand Prix as reason enough for a team to want to take him on.

Okay time for driver signings.
As this is a budget free series you don't need to worry about wages or the suchlike however when bidding for a real life driver your offer will be compared against what they were doing IRL at the time. All previous bids that have been posted will be considered. Fictional drivers must have the DEC holder's permission OR the DEC holder must be inactive for a long time - in which case they'll be RNGed like any other driver.

Please fill out the following form:

Team:
Nationality:
Driver 1:
Nationality:
DEC (if applicable):
Alternate bids:

Driver 2 (if applicable):
Nationality:
DEC (if applicable):
Alternate bids:

Please be as realistic as possible - it's no good tapping up a 19 year old Ayrton Senna as he is very unlikely to sign.

Autosport wrote:B&S "very proud" of Procar efforts

The men behind B&S Fabrications, the struggling British Formula One outfit, today expressed their pride to be so important a part of the BMW M1 Procar Championship.

"Of course, our struggles were well documented, but this year we have become far more ambitious. We have built our new Formula One car as a part of our plan to work towards 1981's new regulations, so when the Procar opportunity came our way it was too good to refuse."

Their driver choices are intriguing: Divina Galica is a long-standing staple of B&S, and although she stepped back from a Formula One race seat in World Championship events, she has still been very much a part of the team. Her reward this year is the opportunity to lead the team's Procar efforts, as well as to continue competing in non-Championship Formula One events.

In the other seat, however, is Kelby Rogerson. He came to the team through his links with occasional driver Luciano Sighinolfi, who wanted the Irishman to have a second chance after he sustained injuries in a horror crash at Enna in the opener of the ill-fated Dywa Grand Prix series last year. Sighinolfi had been the driver planned to take the reins of the second B&S Procar, but instead suggested that his team gave the opportunity to Rogerson.

"Honestly, I've no idea what to expect," Rogerson told us, "In the weeks after that crash, I didn't know if I'd be able to walk again. Once we found that I could, I didn't know if I'd be able to drive again. And after that, I had to learn if I could compete again. Luciano has been great to me though - ever since the crash, he has helped me out every step of the way. He became a friend, not just a former team owner."

It remains to be seen how competitive either Galica or Rogerson will be in a field that will consistently include top Formula One drivers like Nelson Piquet, Clay Regazzoni, and the five-strong BMW Motorsport roster that cherry-picks the best of the F1 grid each weekend, but both will be excellent representatives of their team.

The new BMW M1 Procar series had a rather unremarkable start to proceedings at Circuito del Jarama this past Saturday. Jody Scheckter won in dominant fashion over Alan Jones and Nelson Piquet but many of the local fans had opted to leave the circuit in their hot cars instead of watching a very boring race with just a single overtake.

Frenchman Guillaume Gauthier complained about the new cars and blamed the aerodynamics. "We just can't follow one another for some reason. This needs to be fixed or I won't bother next time."

BMW has reportedly been in discussions with B&S Fabrications and other suppliers to try and sort a fix for the race at Zolder.

Autosprout wrote:HANS-JOACHIM GETS STUCK IN AT ZOLDER
The second race of the BMW M1 Procar was a much more exciting affair that the opening round in Spain. There were far more overtakes for a start - and drivers as a rule were much happier once helmets were removed. Tempers did flare up in parc fermé when Nurmester confronted fellow Grand Prix driver Nelson Piquet after the Brazilian's rather cynical move sent the F1 championship leader into the gravel at Kanaalbrocht. Nurmester called Piquet a "talentless plonker" whilst Piquet said something unprintable in response.

Whilst this was happening, AM Gelsenkirchen's Hans-Joachim Stuck romped off into the distance to give him and his team their first win in the series at a somewhat local circuit. Stuck said of his victory "It's great to get a win for the boys back at AMG. I have great confidence in my abilities and I have a good chance of winning the series if some of the F1 boys don't compete at every round. Let's see!"

Autosprout wrote:VON GOTTORP - PRINCE OF MONACO
The glitz and glamour of the Monaco Grand Prix weekend was heightened by the third round of the BMW M1 Procar Series. Poleman Leonhard von Gottorp drove an incredibly mature race to hold off title contender Manfred Winkelhock and win his first in the series. Alan Jones was left fuming after a puncture saw him retire - most likely caused by debris from a previous incident involving Arturo Merzario and Olivia Cacciatori. Von Gottorp had this to say after his superb performance on Saturday; "I cannot convey my emotion right now. Winning at this most prestigious of venues is something any racing driver dreams of. I will remember this for the rest of my life and I must thank all who made this possible."

At the other end of the grid, there was dreadful news for B&S Fabrications' Kelby Rogerson.

The Irishman, who is making his racing return from a career threatening back injury, qualified seven places below his teammate before withdrawing from the race due to severe back pain.

Bob Sparshott confirmed that Rogerson would be missing the upcoming race at Brands Hatch as a precaution, with Rupert Keegan instead being tasked with running double duty for B&S as he also attempts the Formula One event that weekend.
