Your Fantasy BTCC team will begin with a budget of 10.0m which can be used to 'Buy' drivers to represent your team. You can select up to 6 drivers, so long as your budget allows. Driver 'prices' are a fictitious price assigned for the purpose of this competition.
You are able to change your drivers as often as you like throughout the year, although all selections are frozen once we reach the 'cut-off' for each round. Once the scores are updated for that weekend, you will be able to change your driver line-up for the next event. There is no limit to the number of changes you can make throughout the year.
If your driver is released, replaced, or injured, you will not 'automatically' score points for any replacement driver - it is down to you to make that change. If your driver moves teams you will continue to score points for your driver with their new team.
After the round has been completed, and all points have been updated for the competition, the drivers values will be assessed based on their performance. Where necessary, a drivers value will be adjusted (up or down) in line with their performance over that event. It is only after this adjustment has been made that teams will once again be able to make changes to their driver line-up. The drivers values will not change again until after the following round. If you want to better understand how drivers values are adjusted, I have tried to explain it here.
Where a drivers value increases, it will also increase the budget for all teams who had that driver in their line-up at the time the change was made. Therefore if one of your drivers value changes from 7.0m to 8.0m, your team budget will increase from 10.0m to 11.0m. If you choose to transfer this driver out of your team after the increase in value, you will still be able to spend up to 11.0m on your drivers. (the value of teams can go down as well as up!!!)
If your driver is released, replaced, or injured, their value will be frozen allowing you to transfer them out and spend the money on a new driver. You will not 'automatically' score points for their replacement driver - it is down to you to make that change.
All selected drivers will score points for your team based on their performance in each race weekend, as set out on the How to Score page.
Please note that the 'cut-off' for any changes is clearly displayed on the driver selection screen. This will typically be around 10am on the Saturday of each race weekend - although it is up to you to check that you have made your changes prior to the time displayed. After this time any driver selections will be prohibited until after the completion of the weekends racing.
