Rules & Regulations

Welcome to the third year of the Formula E Dream Team... To encourage a good and broad competition, this will again be a neutron championship... there will be no charge for the 2022 season!


As is traditional there are no cash prizes - achievements will be rewarded with appropriate accolades including rave reviews and/or silverware! The competition is open to all current and former KCC, Jacobs, Telent and Amey colleagues as well as their families. Only one entry per person... and credentials will be verified, although the more the merrier! It would be great to see some new faces to contest the inaugural Rookie of the Year title!


Each team selection must comprise:

a) 5 drivers with a combined "power rating" totalling at least 13 units but not exceeding 15 units;

b) No two drivers from the same team;

c) 3 teams with a combined "power rating" totalling at least 8 units but no more than 10 units.


Submissions will be entered in order of arrival using the online entry form - which will validate your selection and prevent duplicate entries during the registration process. This will ensure that no two teams have the same composition at the outset - although identical squads may arise during the season... Either by accident or design! If there are problems with the entry form please email f1dt@btinternet.com.


The primary opportunity for glory is to top the League table after 14 races, but others may wish to contest the bottom of table tussle, known as the Turner Prize in F1DT - any suggestions for an equivalent title would be appreciated.


Points will be awarded after the race, which may not necessarily be the result at the chequered flag and based upon the official announcement on the Formula E website allowing for any post race penalties. Further changes to the scoring may be applied at the referee's discretion, based upon disciplinary/appeal hearings, until 1200 on the Friday following the race.


As each event is time (and battery) limited, the full race distance is not known until after the chequered flag but will be used to award the lap points. Any changes to the points awarded by the FIA will be applied during scoring although total points will be rounded up to the nearest whole value. There are no pits stops in Formula E, so these cannot be awarded but there is a Fanboost bonus for the lucky five drivers.


Should a driver be replaced (either permanently or temporarily) due to injury/illness/incompetence, the new driver will automatically assume their accumulated points and continue to score on their behalf. The replacement will also assume the same "power rating" as the former driver. Should two drivers swap teams mid-season, there is the potential for illegal squads to occur. In this case, Team Principals have a maximum of one race to make a pit stop and legalise their selections. After this time any remaining illegal entries will incur a penalty where only the points for the highest scoring driver from that constructor will score points, i.e. One driver will score zero points. If a team withdraw mid-season or other complications arise then these will be considered at that time...


In order to make team owners consider their options carefully there will be 3 opportunities during the 2021 season to make up to 2 modifications to your team on each occasion. You may choose exactly when to make those critical team adjustments... If you so desire, you may refine your selections after the initial race - but choose wisely! Managers will retain all the points scored to date by their current team, i.e. they will not retrospectively be awarded the points earned by their new signings. At the pit-stop managers will be allowed to duplicate the team formation of one or more of their rivals. Any changes must still comply with the 5 driver and 3 team rules, as well as the total power ratings. All modifications should be submitted using the online system but in the event of technical problems please email any changes to f1dt@btinternet.com by the deadline for the race as shown on the website home page.


The Golden Egg and Wooden Spoon competitions will be determined in the New Year, once the number of entrants in known. These will follow the same rules as F1DT with the highest scoring team from each match progressing to the next round in the Golden Egg and the lowest scoring team from each match through to the next round of the Wooden Spoon. Should more than 32 teams participate, the First Round matches will become "Cells" of three or more in order to accommodate everyone - the highest (or lowest) from each "Cell" will progress accordingly... No "Pools" as water and electricity don't mix!


The referee for the 2022 season will be yours truly (Der Webmeister) and all his decisions will be final - be warned, he's in charge!
