Welcome to THRs newest Formula One Championship which travels through the Golden Decades of Racing.

Embark on a high-speed journey through time with THR, as we pay homage to the golden eras of Formula One racing. Our newest championship series is designed to celebrate the evolution, innovation, and sheer excitement of F1, by bringing some of the most iconic and groundbreaking machines to the virtual track.

The Legends Line-Up:

  • The Pioneering Power: Auto Union Type C (1930s): Begin your journey with the thunderous Auto Union Type C, a pre-war marvel whose supercharged 6.0 Liter V16 engine redefined power while Auto Union also pioneered the mid-engine layout in top-level GP racing decades before it became the norm in Formula 1. Experience the raw, unbridled power of an era when racing was as much about bravery as it was about pioneering a multitude of engineering approaches.
  • The Classic Contender: Maserati 250F (1950s): Step into the 1950s, a decade where elegance met aggression on the race track. The Maserati 250F, with its legendary front-engine layout and sleek design, invites you to master the art of precision and grace under pressure.
  • The Revolutionary Racer: Lotus 25 (1960s): Embrace the groundbreaking Lotus 25! The first fully monocoque chassis in F1 doubled the preceiding Lotus 18's torsional rigidity while reducing weight at the same time. After Cooper's first mid-engined F1 car from 1958, Chapman's Lotus 25 monocoque embodied the second major engineering revolution of Formula 1. This car laid the chassis engineering foundation for all subsequent generations of Formula 1 cars in the quest for lighter, and faster machines.
  • The Transversal Titan: Ferrari 312T (1970s): The 70s roar to life with the Ferrari 312T, a masterpiece of balance and V12 power. Born into the era of the third revolution that brought downforce-oriented aerodynamics into Formula 1, the Ferrari 312T was notable for an engineering decision in the drivetrain. It was fitted with a transversally-mounted gearbox to move the chassis balance forward and lower the polar moment of inertia, and this formula quickly proved to be a huge success. The 312T series kept evolving throughout the later part of the decade and took the Scuderia with the Cavallino Rampante to 4 World Championships, standing as a beacon of adaptability and technical excellence.
  • The Powerhouse Prodigy: Lotus 98T (1980s): The adrenaline-fueled 80s await with the Lotus 98T, a turbocharged beast that encapsulates the excess and innovation of its decade. Feel the surge of its raw power and face the challenge of taming such an untamed force.
  • The Technological Triumph: McLaren MP4/6 (1990s): Conclude your journey in the 90s with the McLaren MP4/6, an era-defining machine that balances power, aerodynamics, and electronic advancements. This is where technology and talent meet to set new standards in racing excellence.

The Challenge Awaits:

Prepare to harness these titans of the track, each a legend in its own right, representing the pinnacle of its decade's technological and competitive spirit. Our championship isn't just a race; it's a time-traveling adventure that celebrates the relentless human spirit to push boundaries, innovate, and race beyond the limits.

Join us at THR for an unforgettable championship that transcends time, where history is not just remembered, but relived. Rev your engines, for the golden decades of Formula One are calling. Are you ready to make history?
