    (WIP) Video Game Race Car Database

    This database is aimed at documenting of all of the race cars in video gaming. This database is designed to provide a simple way of comparing the content from differing titles and as a means to finding the games with the content you want

    Discord: https://discord.gg/DAxUQm9


    Any helpful tips, corrections or even just useful websites to help accurately place the cars are appreciated

    I have mostly been using Wikipedia, Touringcarracing.net, FIA Historic Database and Racingsportscars.com to fill in the gaps

    And of course the games themselves


    Database:

    British Touring Car Championship/British Saloon Car Championship (1958-59 Complete, 1960-62 Partially Complete): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing
    FIA World Endurance Championship/World Sports Car Championship/ (1953 Complete, 2012 Round 1 Complete): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    You chip in a fiver,I'll chip in a tender,let's get this thing going.Enough to afford a club ticket somewhere and a ruler,we can measure how big the grass is there for ultimate sim ness.Amd then get some more money to do the same somewhere else,and continue until we have a bigger budget.

    It's been a long time since I've mentioned this and I have gone through many prototyping stages (I think I have at least half a dozen different formats) but I think I have reached a structure I like.

    Make a document for each series, and having a separate sheet for each year. Currently I am aiming to cover the World Sports Car Championship and have covered 3 rounds of the 1953 season:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    Each Track is listed with the following info: Round, Date, Race, Track, Layout, Layout Distance, Layout Operating Years, Start Time, Weather, Race Distance, Classes
    Each Car is listed with the Following: Manufacturer, Model, Alternative Names, Variant, Engine, Genaration, Homolgation Group

    Each car is then marked by round using a simple coulour coding system Green=Car Raced, Yellow=Unsure of engine raced, Orange=Car did not turn up, White/Clear=Car not entered

    Next to this will be games using a similar colour coding system probaly similar to this: Green=Present in game, Yellow=Car of same generation in game, Orange=Road Car in game

    This is a project that will take years to achieve if ever, so if anyone wants to help out let me know, just taking a couple minutes every so often will be of great help, it will be much appreciated

    1953 Season is complete: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    OP has been updated

    Work starting on 2012 WEC Season, no real reason other than the early WSC Rounds have literally a million different cars and it takes for ever, so I thought I would do something a little easier

    2012 WEC Season: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    Feel free to make requests, if we can limit it to specific years of championships for now please as these aren't quick at all
