My idea of a new premier open wheel racing series (with amateurish drawings)
One day, I had a concept of a fictionalized racing series where a new open wheel series would be formed. So I decided what to add on to it.
To start off, I originally had the idea of a fictional premier open wheel racing series which had cars used production based and/or factory based engines that was limited to only 6 cylinders, whether it was an Inline 6 or a V6. Not only this, but the engine capacity was from 2.3 to 3.2 liters. Thirdly, the engines could either be naturally aspirated or turbocharged as well as the degree of the engine being whatever the constructor chooses. As for the cars, I thought of mixing past and present together with them incorporating modern F1, Indycar, and a bit of Super Formula. I also created a steering wheel designated for all teams to use as well as a provisional calendar. I called this series the GP6 International Championship.
But then, another idea struck me. Why not have a diverse field of engines which would also have the use of production based engines? So I scrapped the idea of the GP6 International Championship and thus focused on a revised version of it: the International Grand Prix Championship. I also revised the steering wheel and calendar. Below are some of the teams I have drawn (amateurishly) and the season calendar I made up. (I will try and post the regulations and steering wheel sometime in the future.)
