Pure Cobra Venom - this driver won the Carroll Shelby Tribute Trophy special event

The Carroll Shelby Tribute Trophy (CSTT) is Really Rubbish Racing's eleventh special event marking the career of legendary racing driver and designer Carroll Shelby, who sadly passed away in May 2012.

Shelby competed in a handful of Grands Prix in the 1950s and won Le Mans in 1959 driving an Aston Martin. He is perhaps best known for putting his name to the legendary Shelby Cobra. A coupe version of this, named the Cobra Daytona, was designed to take on and beat Ferrari in GT racing. It did just that, winning the 12 hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1964 and it is in this car and on these tracks where we will pay homage to a true icon of motor racing.

Event Format

The event will comprise of two races, each lasting around 25 minutes. The first race will take place around the full layout of Sebring over nine laps. The grid ordering for this race will be random. The second race will take place around the old circuit at Le Mans (without the chicanes) and will be six laps long. This race will have a reverse grid. Both races will have standing starts.

The winner of the event will be the driver who scores the most points after both races. With it only being a two race championship the chance of drivers finishing on equal scores is quite likely, so the points system will heavily favour the top three finishers. To compensate, points will stretch right down the field so that everyone is competing for something. In the event two drivers finish with identical results from both races, total race time will become the deciding factor.

Points

Points will be awarded down to 16th place. Ties on points will be decided by best results. If best results are identical, total time for both races will be the deciding factor.

Car Regulations

Base livery template


All drivers will run in completely stock Cobra Daytona Coupes. There will be no tuning.

The livery must remain wholly similar to the original car, retaining the two stripes and the locations of the number roundels. The GT box and Daytona motif must remaind where they are. The colours can however be changed to that of your choosing, including the colour of the number roundels. Your number must go in the roundel, but can be in whatever font and whatever style you wish. You must also place the Really Rubbish Racing club crest somewhere on the car, but where you put it is up to you. You may also add a small team logo and driver name somewhere if you wish, but I really want to keep the look simple and similar to that of the original car.

Other examples of livery designs can be found here.
