|Alley Province, Senya
The Senyan Motorsports Team is the national racing team of the Democratic Environmental Society of Senya, later rebranded as Evaiacaosa GP. The team was founded on October 2, 2011 by Barnaby Hands, and is Senya's fifth national sport association, behind FADESS, SRSU, Badminton Senya and Senyan Chess. The team raced out of Alley Province.
A prolific nation in the world of micronational sport, Senya was among the first to create a micronational motorsports team. Barnaby Hands founded the team in October 2011 and announced its entry into the young IAA Grand Prix championship.
2011 IAA Grand Prix
Although tipped for great things early due to their sporting reputation, Senyan Motorsports Team struggled in the 2011 season of IAA competition. A 6th place in the Yablokan grand prix was a sign of things to come. Senya Motorsports Team spent most of 2011 in the midpack, never achieving victory or the dubious distinction of finishing last. The #4 car developed a reputation for reliability on its Bridgestone tires, however driver Barnaby Hands was unable to capitalize on the mistakes of other drivers. Two highlights of the season were undoubtably the team's first podium in Los Bay Petros and a second hard fought podium appearance in Gishabrun. Quality performances from the rest of the midfield left the Senyan Motorsports Team car towards the back in final grand prix at St. Charlie. The team finished 7th and last in the truncated 2011 IAA season.
2013 Formula M Season
Not dissuaded by the initial struggles in IAA, the Senyan Motorsports Team kept active in the sport. In fact, they were the only national motorsports team to return from 2011 when IAA created a new championship in 2013, Formula M. The team re-signed its contracts with Bridgestone and Barnaby Hands for 2013 but rebranded as Evaiacaosa GP. Unfortunately, they were unable to show improvement as the 2013 season never got off the ground due to a lack in other competitors.
