<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Bobcat205</b></div><div>When you have a lot of free time, you take an idea and think way too much on it.

Over the weekend, i read a bit about the old A1 Grand Prix series, which ran from 2005 to 2009. It was essentially a World Cup of auto racing, where over 20 different teams represented their country. This got me thinking:

<em>How would I set up my own World Cup of Auto Racing?</em>

First off, it would be an open wheel series, and all drivers will be required to have open-wheel experience anywhere from Formula Ford/Renault to Indycar or Formula 1. 20 drivers from 20 countries will participate, and the countries and drivers that represent them are as follows:

United States: Josef Newgarden
Canada: Lance Stroll
Mexico: Patricio O'Ward
Venezuela: Pastor Maldonado
Brazil: Pietro Fittipaldi
Great Britain: Lando Norris
Spain: Carlos Sainz
France: Romain Grosjean
Germany: Mick Schumacher
Netherlands: Max Verstappen
Italy: Antonio Giovinazzi
Sweden: Marcus Ericsson
Finland: Valtteri Bottas
Russia: Daniil Kvyat
India: Jehan Daruvala
Thailand: Alexander Albon
China: Guanyu Zhou
Japan: Takuma Sato
Australia: Will Power
New Zealand: Scott Dixon

Onto the cars themselves, it would obviously be a spec series. All drivers would drive the Dallara IR-18, powered by the Honda Indy V6. So, in other words, your average, run-of-the-mill Indycar with Honda power.

The schedule has to be the hardest part. I think i have it down, though.

Round 1: United States (Indianapolis Motor Speedway)
Round 2: Canada (Circuit Gilles Villleneuve)
Round 3: Mexico (Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez)
Round 4: Venezuela (San Carlos Circuit)
Round 5: Brazil (Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace)
Round 6: Great Britain (Brands Hatch)
Round 7: Spain (Circuito de Jerez)
Round 8: France (Circuit de Nevers-Magny Cours)
Round 9: Germany (Hockenheimring)
Round 10: Netherlands (Zandvoort)
Round 11: Italy (Imola)
Round 12: Sweden (Anderstorp Raceway)
Round 13: Finland (Helsinki Thunder)
Round 14: Russia (Sochi Autodrom)
Round 15: India (Madras Race Track)
Round 16: Thailand (Chang International Circuit)
Round 17: China (Shanghai International Circuit)
Round 18: Japan (Twin Ring Motegi)
Round 19: Australia (Melbourne Street Circuit)
Round 20: New Zealand (Rapauna Raceway)

How did i do? What would you change? Give me your feedback.</div></div>

I like this idea a lot.

My one change would be to pivot away from Venezuela. I think racing there would be a lost cause given all the issues that plague the country. I'd love to see Pastor back, but it is tough to sell anything relating to Venezuela. I would replace Venezuela with Colombia's Autodromo de Tocancipá, and have Colombia be represented by good ole' Juan Pablo Montoya.
