Cars MVRC Sao Paulo 2018

The cars entered for the third race of the season, taking place in Sao Paulo have been released:

The cars mostly look like evolutions to the cars entered in the last race. JJR’s front fenders look very interesting though. After Variante’s victory last race, it will be interesting to see how far his car has improved. He claims nothing substantial was done. So maybe CAEdevice or JJR can once more get ahead of him.

The video is not quite correct, as a late mistake with the Talno entry has been detected:

The cars entered for the second race of the season, taking place in Sepang have been released:

It looks like Variante has taken a few weeks thinking, resulting in huge developments. Lets see if the car performs more like expected this time. TalnoRacing and Pure Power Racing also show some interesting new details not seen so far in this competition. While most cars always had pretty open rear wheel houses, now many now also have openings in the front wheel houses.

Scrutineering MVRC LeMans 2018

The results of the scrutineering process are out:

  • CAEdevice: Warning issued: Rule 3.2. End plates thicker than 25mm

Most violations lead to warnings. Tulip Racing received a penalty as some individual body parts did not form closed solids. The individual warnings issued to Vortex Racing could have stayed warnings as it is a new team but as the violations probably add a lot to the vehicle performance (a much larger rear wing!) and were so easy to spot, they in combination lead to a penalty. The penalty for Mercury Motorsport is also mostly because a high rear diffuser increases vehicle performance a lot.

Cars MVRC Le Mans 2018

The cars for the first race of the MVRC 2018 season, taking place in Le Mans can now be viewed:

Some new teams are present. With CAEdevice and JJR looking strong as always, Variante seems to have taken a more balanced approach between unconventional and keeping it somewhat simple. Pure Power Racing clearly also took a lot of time refining the design skills. Will they or one of the new teams be able to kick the usual suspects from the podium? Results should come in this Sunday, so stay tuned…
