It’s been a few weeks since announcing our first Codies League Championship and we’ve seen a great number of high quality entries. Narrowing down the final participants was a tough job, we were very impressed with the dedication and passion all of you put into your F1 2013 leagues races, we really do have an incredible community of players. So before we announce the 7 leagues participating we want to give a big thank you to all those that applied and got in touch, we want to expand the championship throughout the year so we hope to hear from you again in the future.
The leagues that will be competing for the top position every Wednesday for the next five weeks are listed below, each with a quote from their admin/team leader. Every race will feature two members from each league battling it out on some of the most famous circuits in the world, and as you can tell from the quotes, it sounds like they are all committed in producing some incredible racing.
Fisi – AOR
“We are delighted at the opportunity of having our league and community represented in what looks to be a very exciting championship! With two of our finest drivers ready for the challenge, it’ll be interesting to see how we fare against the other great leagues out there. We’re expecting some very tough competition, but our aim is that after the first race – others will expect the same from us. So let’s get racing!”

We’re not the biggest or most well-known F1 league out there but we have some fast racers who are keen to show they can compete with the top drivers from other leagues. It will be fascinating to see which league comes out on top. Australia is a great place to start the championship and we’ll be hoping to pick up a good haul of points.”
