The Formula GP2 Challenge, a premier LOTA racing series, puts drivers in the high performance Formula V8 open wheel cars of Live For Speed. While the car remains the same, the FO8 engine is detuned via a 20% intake restriction to bring the power down by 120 BHP and increasing overall car stability. Designed for drivers still developing their open wheel skills, the GP2 series focuses on competition amongst the drivers.
The FGP2C is a 8-event series over 11 weeks with events featuring a 15 minute qualifying session, a 15 minute sprint race, followed by a 50 minute feature race with one mandatory 4-tire change pit stop. The two featured Championships will be the Squad Championship, based on 4-driver squads, and the traditional individual title. Drivers will count their best 7 events toward the driver's title while squads count all points earned towards the squad title. The FGP2C will use the standard LOTA points table with the available performance bonuses for qualifying on the pole, leading a lap, fastest lap, highest climber, and laptime stability. The event password is applied to the race server 36 hours prior to the event to provide a private final preparation environment.
