Number Of Races
2014 Formula Sim Racing Season
MadCape‘s first season within Formula SimRacing was the 2013 season. The team consisted of 5 members; Xavier de Carvalho as TOA representative, Matt Sentell and Dino Paolini as primary drivers, and April Dillon with Robert Nocon as Test Drivers.
2nd Half Of The Season.
Jiri Toman came on board in the final 3 races of the season as a reserve driver. The team used this season to test the waters and plant their roots into the worlds most competitive sim racing competition. They managed to score just one podium throughout the season, after Jiri Toman scored a podium finish in Japan. This was also MadCape‘s only points scoring position of the season.
2015 Formula Sim Racing Season
MadCape entered into the 2015 Formula SimRacing season, marking their second season in the competition. The team started fresh with a completely new driver line-up in the form of Aleksi Kivela and Jarl Teien. Daniel Kiss, Dewald Nel, Giordano Valeriano, and Martin Hodas would all step in as reserve drivers throughout the season.
Dealing With Challenges
The team was unexpectedly thrown into the deep end when Jarl Teien decided to resign from the series after just 2 race meetings. This meant that the team was left with just one driver on it’s roster and faced a tough task trying to recruit a 2nd driver. The roster would officially remain with just one driver for the remainder of the season after the team failed to secure a reliable replacement for Jarl. This contributed massively to the teams lackluster performance throughout the season.
Winning Our First Race
MadCape takes solice however, in the fact that they managed to win the opening round of the season thanks to Daniel Kiss. Kiss was on loan for one just one round and no points were scored until Martin Hodas at the end of the season. Martin Hodas would race the final 3 races and score an extra 10 points towards the teams end of season tally.
2016 Formula Sim Racing Season
MadCape entered into the 2016 Formula SimRacing season, marking their 3rd season in the competition. The team entered the season with yet another fresh line-up of drivers. This time bringing in the Greek duo of Jim Parisis and George Manousakis.
