Bathurst 1000 Megarace Racing Manager GameBathurst 1000 Megarace runs in the BATracer game engine. This is an proposed player-made independant carset to be added to the game.
For carsets which are currently active and can be played now (currently 33 different sets to choose from), scroll to the bottom.
|#88 Vodafone and #888 Vodafone FG Falcons. After three consecutive wins, Triple Eight are looking to make it four from four in 2009 and are easily the favourites to do so. But their experience and run of success may be brought down by complacency.|
Holden Racing Team
|#2 Toll HRT and #22 Toll HRT VE Commodores. HRT have not mounted the top step of the podium since 2005. In fact, they haven't been able to make a clear challenge; their best finish since has been a lowly eleventh in 2007.|
Stone Brothers Racing
|#4 Irwin and #9 SP Tools FG Falcons. The once-mighty Stone Brothers outfit has reduced themselves to running relaivelty inexperienced drvers. But they see both of them as being long-term prospects who improve with each and every race.|
Sprint Gas Racing
|#3 EzyGas and #51 Sprint Gas VE Commodores. Familiar faces fill up Sprint Gas's four seats, making them one of the most experienced lineups on a grid full of expeirenced drivers. But the team has had poor showings in the rest of the championship; can they pull a rabbit out of their hat?|
Ford Performance Racing
|#5 Orrcon FPR and #6 Castrol FPR FG Falcons. "Almost" defines FPR's Bathurst and title campaigns. For years they have come close to success, but have never quite expeirenced it. A gargantuan effort is needed if they wish to step out of their rivals' shadows.|
Jack Daniels Racing
|#7 Jack Daniel's and #15 Jack Daniel's VE Commodores. Some say that one of their drivers is a British television presenter ... and that he is the only known specimen of the rare Tame Racing Driver. All we know is that he's called B------- C------.|
Dick Johnson Racing
|#17 Jim Beam and #18 Jim Beam FG Falcons. The outfit formerly known as Dick Johnson Racing is finally coming of age, with a series of strong showings in both the endurance races and V8 series proper and have made a strong case for them to be taken seriously as aspiring Bathurst winners.|
|#10 Autobarn VE Commodore. The first of the single-car teams, Team Autobarn come with the support of Walkinshaw Racing and have the unusual distinction of not running their regular driver in the endurance races.|
Paul Cruickshank Racing
|#111 McGrath Foundation FG Falcon and|
#333 McGrath Foundation BF Falcon. Expanding to a two-car operation, Team McGrath have unlocked an unexpected talent in one of their drivers. Their one-off Bathurst livery will make them immediately identifable: look for the pink car challenging for the lead.
Brad Jones Racing
|#8 BOC and #14 WOW VE Commodores. The perennial midfielders are back! Noted for their casual atmosphere, The BOC and WOW Commodores are looking to impress this year with a shot at a podium, but their Phillip Island form was disappointing.|
Hi-Tec Oils Racing
|#16 Hi-Tec Oils VE Commodore. The second car to come with support from the Kelly Racing garages, Hi-Tec Oils has been let down by an insecure driver lineup. Having been in and out of the wars on-track, most drivers will treat car #16 the same way as they do its Dodo stablemate.|
Bundaberg Red Racing
|#24 Bundaberg VE Commodore. Coming with the support of Tom Walkinshaw, Bundaberg is in a similar situation to Team Autobarn: a one-man team with limited support. But the team is the strongest of the new teams for 2009, and with an international draft they could produce a surprise.|
Garry Rogers Motorsport
|#33 Valvoline/Cummins and #34 Valvoline/Cummins VE Commodores. GRM have surprised all with their driver lineup staging a stunning coup de grace this season. Hope may float eternal, but their expectations may be too high, which could lead to their undoing.|
|#25 Fujitsu FG Falcon. The Britek team was absorbed by Stone Brothers for 2009, scaling back their operations to one car. But they have also acquired one of the three wildcard racing entires an will field a second car that is older than the current generation.|
Supercheap Auto Racing
|#39 Supercheap Auto and #67 Supercheap Auto VE Commodores. Balancing young drivers to give the team some flair with older drivers to add some common sense, Supecheap have had a mixed season. A late driver change between cars has given them a lineup that may be less-than-optimal.|
Rod Nash Racing
|#55 Bottle-O VE Commodore. One of the longest-standing one-car teams, Rod Nash returns with car #55. Their driver lineup my be unknown and their results may have gone un-noticed, but their continued presence in the championship is a testament to their dedication.|
Greg Murphy Racing
|#23 Roadways VE Commodore. A wildcard entry for the endurance races, neither driver has any experience with Mount Panorama. But don't discount them as a half-attempt: they come with support from Greg Murphy Racing.|
Sieders Racing Team
|#13 Jesus - All About Life BF Falcon. The third and final wildcard entry had best hope they are not a suspicious lot as they are running the ominous #13. Plucked from the ranks of the V8 ute series, and with a sponsor most people would not associate with motorsport, this small team is looking for a big surprise.|
|#11 Dodo VE Commodore. Dodo has attracted a lot of criticism in 2009 following several dangerous and foolish on-track incidents born out of an inexperienced driver lineup. They might have the support of the Kelly Racing Team, but most of the drivers will want to steer clear of the #11 Commodore.|
Ford 5.0L V8
|Stone Brothers Racing developed 5.0 litre V8 Ford with SVO cylinder iron block and|
aluminium heads. Category control MoTeC engine management control system.
Holden 5.0L V8
|Holden Motorsport 5.0 litre fuel injected V8. Holden Racing Team developed cylinder|
heads, fuel injection, intake and exhaust system. Category control MoTec engine
Dunlop Control Slick Tyre
Dunlop Control Wet Tyre
|Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia||The Holy Grail of Australian Motorsport. A win here is the equivalent of victory in the Monaco Grand Prix, and like its bedfellow, the undulating six kilometres of tarmac that is Bathurst is one of the most difficult challenges a driver can face.|| ||11th October|
|Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia||Part 2 of The Great Race, covering laps 51 to 100.|| ||11th October|
|Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia||The final segment of The Great Race, covering laps 101 to 161. WARNING: You can retire from this part of the race!|| ||11th October|
Bathurst 1000 Megarace Racing Strategy Game<b>Overview</b>
This 'megarace' is based on the 2009 race, featuring all the cars from the 2009 V8 Supercar Series, and the wildcards that appeared in the 2 enduros, Phillip Island and Bathurst.
A new feature for this set is the ability to alter driving style for both of your DCs. For example, you might have a higher pace for 1, or a lower pitstop slider for the other, and so on and so forth. They might not tire, but there is a price to pay if you use a driver too often - if he does more than 110 laps, you'll be disqualified!
