    Adelaide - 14th March

    The second race is of identical distance to the first.

    ITM Hamilton 400

    The second race is of identical distance to the first.

    L&H 500 Qualifying Race

    Victoria - 11th September

    "Grand Finale Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. A frustrating circuit which will test the patience of drivers. A fast sweeping circuit, overtaking may be difficult depending upon setup and strategy. A unique event on the calendar, the first race is short and devised specifically to set the grid order for the main race."

    L&H 500 Race

    Victoria - 12th September

    The main race is long and gruelling - drivers must bide their time and not try to go all out too soon. Strategy will play a bigger part in this race than most.

    Armor All Gold Coast 600

    Queensland - 23rd October

    The second race is of identical distance to the first - and no less demanding!

    Falken Tasmania Challenge

    The second race is of identical distance to the first.

    Sandown

    Melbourne - 20th November

    Melbourne - 21st November

    The second race is of identical distance to the first.

    Sydney Telstra 500

    Sydney - 4th December

    Sydney - 5th December

    The second race is of a comparable distance to the first.

    V8S 2010 Racing Strategy Game

    This series is inspired by the V8 Supercars 2010 Season. For various reasons look-a-like names and car liveries have been used.

    It is assumed the player is already familiar with the original BATracer V8S carset, such as the greater challenges facing drivers trying to get a good setup. However, this has a very different race calendar and event format - gone are the reverse grid races and using previous race finishes to decide grids. Many races are also longer, and - due to a shift to E85 fuel - stints are shorter, resulting in more pitstops.

    7 race meetings involve two largely identical length races - allowing you a 2nd shot at getting your strategy right if you screwed up previously. 5 race meetings involve 2 races of differing lengths. On top of this, there are the special "L&H 500" and Bathurst rounds which have unique formats.

    Qualifying

    Almost all races use the following qualifying format:

    The initial race at each venue uses a 3-stage qualifying format. Only 1 car is knocked out during the first session, which acts as largely a practice/warmup event - try not to crash before qualifying begins properly! The next session reduces the number of cars down to the top 10, where the fight for pole is concluded in the final phase. This is the best approximation we could find for the real series - with the only change being the addition of a single car being knocked out in the first phase.

    The second race does something slightly different. The real series uses an exact repeat of the first, but following this format would result in gameplay taking almost 2 months to complete! From a gameplay point of view this also lacks variety. Therefore, qualifying for the 2nd race is decided by practice times which makes the game nearly 2 weeks shorter, but also more varied.

    L&H 500

    This event has a unique qualifying race, the finishing positions thus deciding the grid order for the main event. The pre-qualifying race grid order is decided by the usual 3-stage format.

    Bathurst

    This is a single-race event and qualifying is based on the usual 3-stage format.

    Points

    Points are awarded for all finishes, even if you come last. A retirement offers no points at all.

    The points are awarded as follows:

    Pitstops

    Although pitstops are no longer mandatory (except at the L&H 500 Qualifying Race) a fuel limit restriction means pitstops are made at all races anyway. The race strategy page will provide you with your available options for pitstops, which differ from race to race.
