THE RULES FOR THE LOLA WORLD SERIES 2010
Each team will be given £15 million to spend on drivers, engines and tyres, as well as developments to your car.
Prize money will be given each race depending on finishing positions and these can be used to spend on either improving reliability or giving your engine more power. You will have just eight chances during the season in which to improve your car after rounds 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21 and 23. It is up to you how much of your budget you use throughout the season, but you must state what you're using and how much you use.
If you select your own personal drivers, you MUST provide a short history for them so as to assess how good they are. They will cost you £250k and will bring you NO additional sponsorship money.
These drivers are experienced in the WRL, and have sponsorship money to bring to the team as well. Drivers in red are already employed.
Your cars start with the engine power allocated by your particular engine manufacturer, and with 12000 reliability points which of course you'll want to reduce!!! Everything has increased a little sense last year, both in cost and value!
