Rule changes

Technical

  • 2013 saw the return of Engine Development, adding another degree of complexity to the job of team manager and bringing potentially crucial differences between the teams. Selected teams within the Superleague became engine constructors, building the powerplants for all other teams. The four "works" deals will be available went to Potentia (Midnight), Martex (Nordsjoen), Krevder (Kernow) and Trinity (Woods) who in turn sold their products to the remaining nine teams.
  • A new contract system featured three different classes of driver contracts; Primary Drivers, Reserve Drivers and Emergency Drivers. Primary Drivers were not allowed to participate in any way in series “below” their current one in the career ladder, their commitment being to the series where they have a Primary contract. Reserve Drivers were allowed to take part only in four races per season before having to switch to a Primary Driver contract. Emergency Drivers were entitled to the same deal of Reserve Drivers, but their contracts could not exceed a duration of one month.
  • A real game changer for the GPVWC, was the introduction of a Dynamic weather conditions introduced via the by RFE Weather Plugin. This did not simply add wet tracks to the game; rather it simulated atmospheric conditions changing throughout the race and being reflected by the levels of grip and temperature of the track.

Sporting

  • Drivers were required to use both available tyre compounds throughout a race, unless the wet weather tyre was used by drivers during the race.
  • The points structure changed to reflect one utilized in real life by MotoGP and rewarded the top 15 placed drivers.
