Turn 1 League
An F1 car for everyone? Close enough ...
Lotus Exos 125 is a car designed to create a special training program for future open wheel drivers. It was to supposed to be produced in only 25 pieces with the price of 1 million dollars in 2010 year.
Exos Club, which was suposed to be joined by wealthy fast-driving fanatics, had to undergo rigorous trainings which were to prepare them for a series of 5 races organized by the club in 2011. Unfortunately, the project failed. According to sources , Lotus produced only two cars. Open wheel vehicles are really fast and really require a lot from the driver. Therefore, it was difficult for people outside the motorsport environment to get even a little pleasure out of the car. Without funds and people willing to participate, the exos club ended before it could begin.
For those who do not have a free million dollars to purchase the car, T1 comes with a solution. Together with ROS, we are organising a league these cars and we'll try to give you as much fun, pleasure and clean racing on various tracks from around the world.
R0 - Bikereneki High Speed Ring, Lithuania
R1 - Daytona Road Course
R2 - Suzuka GP
R3 - Interlagos - Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace
R4 - Chang International Circuit
R5 - Road America
The season is free for participate. We do not introduce an additional payment system, any driver can send in his car skins and create teams. However, we encourage you to make voluntary contributions to ROS.
However, if you decide to make a donation, you will receive a distinction on the site, as in the case of a "powerful driver", only under a different name and with a new icon. Which icon you ask? You will have to find out ;)
During signup, you will have the ability to choose a car skin if you do not want to do your own. However, if you are going to do your own car livery, let us remind you that the car should have the ROS, T1 and PowrótRoberta logo which can be downloaded in the logo pack below. Numberplate is not required.
Light, fast, easy to drive - what more could you want when you enter the world of open-wheel cars? We are waiting for the takers, R0 is in just two weeks!
Special thanks to ROS who let us use their servers, give us technical support and place on the site, and Shalkyer, who was one of the key testers of tracks and cars. Thanks to them, the season as it is now, probably would be stopped at the planning stage.
