Welcome to the CDM Boremula 1 World Championship - a league/series on iRacing combining the Pro Mazda with old-school Formula 1 liveries to go some way towards replicating the 1997 and 1998 FIA Formula 1 World Championship seasons.

The main ethos behind this series - like a lot of others that I run - is entertainment. I wanted the cars to look the part while still being distinguishable from the real things, while giving viewers and drivers something to get nostalgic about. The Pro Mazda (previously named the Star Mazda) has a small rotary engine, less than 200 horsepower, but a lot of downforce. They can produce incredible racing and are great fun to drive once you get used to them - they like to oversteer on downshifts.

The championship follows a calendar similar to what Formula 1 did back in the day, only limited by the track choice on iRacing and the fact that a lot of circuits have been updated massively since the last 90s. The first season took up almost an entire year, running from February through to November, but for Season 2 onwards, Boremula 1 will follow a more conventional sim racing calendar of weekly or fortnightly races to accommodate for multiple exterior factors that could affect numbers or a driver's availability to compete.

Everything is based around maintaining an enjoyable atmosphere for the drivers and competitors first and foremost, with protests and conflict around incidents kept to a minimum, but close, competitive racing is of course encouraged. Driver and team line-ups are determined by a pre-season testing evening, where drivers have three 30-minute Qualifying sessions to set times at different circuits. They will be awarded points based on their finishing positions in each session, and have their scores totted up at the end.

These scores will then be placed alongside the finishing order of the Formula 1 World Championship from whichever year we're replicating, and drivers will be assigned to their corresponding car. Simple, right?

The series and idea in general has received positive feedback since Season 1 and I thoroughly hope that it continues to live up to the hype as time goes on.
