    Info:
    FIA Masters Historic Formula One is the ultimate place for Formula One cars of a golden age. Now we will re-create this great event in RF2 :)

    We will race Formula One cars from 1967 through to 1979 on same grid! Masters Historic Formula One takes us back to an era in which power and a creative car designer could win races, long before modern wind tunnels and energy drinks were created! Different powered cars will be mixed on grid to make truly unique event in Sim racing.

    Fuel:
    Some basic calculation (with safe margin) for race fuel (40 laps):
    Around 110L for Cosworth powered cars before 1978
    Around 125L for Ferrari/BRM/Matra cars before 1978

    Around 140L for Renault turbo from 1979
    Around 130L for Ferrari and Alfa-romeo from 1979
    Around 120L for Coswroth powered card from 1979


    You should still check in game your own car fuel consumption as it depends of the car and your setup.

    If I can get my sorry arse out of bed in time (I'm in GMT+12), then I'll be keen.
    I really like the idea though and the car and track choices - it should be great fun :)

    I do have to nitpick a little, and mention that the Wright brothers already used a wind tunnel for aerodynamic testing in 1901 and the Brabham F1 team had been using one since 1963. And there's a reason Coca Cola used to have cocaine in it. ;)

    Anyway, I hope I can make it. Will have limited testing time regardless, but should be a good time as long as I can keep it on the gray stuff.
