    Mini NASCAR Championship - Tuesday 4th Sept @ 9pm UK (10pm CET)

    Post by Rudyard77 on Fri 31 Aug 2012, 11:58 pm

    I realise that oval racing isn't to everyone's tastes, but I wondered whether I might be able tempt club members into a mini NASCAR series this Tuesday.

    Eligible cars: Ford stock car or Chevrolet stock car - tuned to R3 Class / PI: 800

    Three oval races to be held in one lobby session:

    Race 1: Sunset - 30 Laps
    Race 2: Twin Ring Motegi - 35 Laps
    Race 3: Indianapolis - 25 Laps


    Damage will be set to cosmetic (as aero damage on these tracks would completely ruin your race). Obviously clean, respectful driving would be appreciated.

    For giggles and to mix things up a bit there will be 2 Mandatory Pit-Stops required in each race (with at least five laps between each). Failure to make two pit-stops will mean you score zero points in that race.

    I think that each race should take around 20 minutes or so, and with a few minutes between each for a break, change of car tune etc, we should be done in around 1hr 15mins - I would guess…

    Each race will feature random starting grids (as no doubt people will want to run different tunes for each track, allowing people to leave the lobby to select a tune and re-enter without mucking up a lobby point system).

    There will be a 1 million CR prize for the overall winner (free choice of car to this value).

    Obviously this won't be any fun without a reasonable number of people. I think we need at least six entrants for this to proceed.

    I realise its short notice, but I’m suggesting 9pm UK time (10pm CET) on Tuesday 4st Sept. I will host the lobby.

    Depending on the number of participants, I'll post up the points scoring system here later.

    Please post up if you wish to enter.

    Thanks, and hope to see you on the ovals - everybody's welcome!

    I'm no expert on an oval, but I'd give it a go Smile

    Sure, I'm in.

    The Formula 1 should be finished by then, so I can make it. If not, I'll catch up on the race in the evening Smile

    I've plenty of free time (may change following next week - back to Sixth Form) but I'm good for now. Whatever works for everyone else Smile

    Well, I'm making a fine example of just how not to arrange an event at short notice! Embarassed My apologies for messing about with all these times. I had completely forgotten about the Belgian Grand Prix - of course people will want to see that... meaning that Sunday afternoon is a no no. I can't do Sunday evening.

    Ok, I guess its a shame, but we could always run something similar again another day. I guess its easier if we just fix a firm time and then everyone knows where we stand - if people can't make it then thats a shame, but we'll never find a time convenient for all at short notice.

    So, lets go for 9pm UK (10pm CET) on Tuesday 4th Sept. If we don't get enough people, then its not the end of the World.

    I wouldn't be able to make 8pm tomorrow unfortunately, but would like to race. Midweek sometime at 9pm would be best for me if you can't get the numbers for tomorrow

    Hmmm, that's a shame. Maybe this is all just too short notice.

    Edit: Ok, proposed date and time changed to 9pm UK (10pm CET) on Tuesday 4th Sept.

    Right then. Seeing as Tuesday might be ok for both Ant and Kirschned, and seeing as Jim and Si couldn't make Saturday anyway, lets tentatively re-arrange for Tuesday evening.

    New proposed time then: 9pm UK time (10pm CET) on Tuesday 4th Sept. Hopefully we'll get at least six of us to make a half decent grid.

    You'll be the one who needs a brain op, and by the third race I'll be driving your car to victory Razz

    Haha, he looses too.

    It's a win, win situation for me I'm afraid Very Happy

    Just need to actually work out how to drive an oval. The barriers are not too kind to me.
