The minimum amount of laps exceeding 150 km was used as the race length. NOTE: Round 4 was delayed by 1 week from its original date.
The events started at 17:00 UTC, and there also was a possibility to watch live from LFS Remote. The drivers were required to enter the server as soon as possible.

17.7.2013 Because Westhill is such a long and boring track for the MRT's, it has now been decided that the series is shortened to 5 rounds, because we won't use Autocross. This leads to the series to end on the 9th of November instead.
28.6.2013 The fixed setups are considered to be forced again, having discovered the usage of the MPR Extractor. The official decision is still to come though.
26.5.2013: The series schedule is now added on the LFS race calendar, and the series name has been decided to be Formula M (M for MRT). The series will start on the 14th of September and will end on the 23rd of November. The races are held on Saturdays every other week. The calendar consists of 6 rounds, each of them being driven on different tracks. The knock-out qualifying idea has been scrapped, as well as the fixed setups, because there's no simple way to accomplish it. As the rulebook comes, the points system will be informed as well. We also decided to allow bump-drafting.
Following my resigning from GPVWC's Formula Challenge series, I have not found another series to race in. Therefore, I'm planning a new series based on the MRT5 car and custom tracks. This thread is meant to see how many people recommend this idea, and want to be a part of it or support it. The series is focused on drivers who prefer it the easy and slow way, the series is available for everyone. The name mentioned in the title is not the final name, it could as well be MRT World Series or MRT World Cup or perhaps in a real world name, Formula SAE Championship.
I've already planned some rules, such as:
- Common setups (Everyone would use the same setups, only with minor changes).
- Custom tracks (LFS tracks with custom layouts).
- 26 car grid (Maximum of 26 drivers can take part in a race).
- Pre-Qualifying (Because of the limited amount of the drivers, a pre-qualifying session would be organized).
- Knockout qualifyings (The top 10 of the qualifying 1 will advance to qualifying 2).
- Custom points system (Not designed yet).
If this sounds like a great idea, hit more suggestions below. It would also be neat if this could be broadcasted.
