The Formula 1 Rejects Grand Prix 2 Championship, commonly abbreviated to F1RGP2C, is a computerized racing championship run in Grand Prix 2. Its current season is the 1997 Formula 1 Rejects Grand Prix 2 Championship season, based on 1997 Formula One season. The records for this series can be found here.
The F1RGP2C was originally conceived by an Eastern European consortium who wanted to make a new racing series with an added twist. Using some questionable alternate reality simulators, (created by Micropose and the guys behind the hologram machines in the F1RMGP) the series was set to start, albeit twenty years in the past. However, the Eastern European consortium ran out of money and the series was on the brink of death. Luckily, former F1RWRS driver Tristan Jung stepped in (using a time machine) to become the president of the renamed F1RGP2C and run the series. The series has remained in operation, crowning Jack Christopherson as its first champion in 1994. In a tragic consequence of the reality alterations, Bernie was removed as Formula 1 supremo and the sport was left as a relatively minor entity until the Australian cadre of drivers led by Daniel Melrose led a brief revival. Then they all flocked to the F1RWRS, leaving Formula 1 on its deathbed.
In 1995, the series instituted many new changes and events including the Duel in the Desert and the "seat holder" rule. John Zimmer was crowned as the series' second champion for Benetton-Renault. President Tristan Jung also asserted himself in on-track matters, intervening during the tyre debacle at the 1995 F1RGP2C Pacific Grand Prix, threatening to ban drivers who refused to compete. This made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move. Jung's credibility fell but he remained as president for 1996. The Drivers' Championship was won by Daniel Moreno who survived a close battle with his Williams teammate, Pippa Mann.
