Arse in a Reasonably Fast Car
« on: May 02, 2008, 06:23:35 pm »
Arse in a Reasonably Fast Car
GTR2 Fun Run - Fri 9th May


Location:  Top Gear Test Track (Version 0.5)

Car:  You'll find out when you join the server (it will be a default GTR2 car).

Practice Start:  1900 GMT | 2000 BST

Event Start:  2000 GMT  |  2100 BST

Password:  League Password


Event Format

  • At 2100 BST the server will be rolled over to an hour long qualify session
  • One driver will drive out onto the track and stop at the SF line.  He will do one timed lap (standing start) and then, having crossed the line, he'll return to the pits
  • Everyone else will watch, and say things like: "Ooh, nice and tidy through the Hammerhead! "
  • Each driver present will do one timed lap.  If you go off, hit a tyre wall, spin, get a cut-track, whatever...  that's it...  no second chances
  • The running order will be chosen randomly - with a random number generator or a hat or something


Rules

  • Default set up only
  • No tweaking
  • No fuel removal
  • Only adjustment allowed is Steering Lock
  • Only Driver Aid allowed is Auto Clutch
  • Manual Gears Only
  • Cockpit View Only
  • Ventrilo Required


When we're done, we'll have an 'Arse in a Reasonably Fast Car' leader board, that we'll put up on the front page.  Depending on the amount of people on the server, if there's time after everyone has done their lap, we could maybe all have another go - in the wet!

If it works, we could run it as an occasional series.  If not...  sorry, I'll stick to drawing the small yellow round people.

 :)

This sounds like a fun event.  I'd love to participate, but I'll be working at the time  :cry:

Hopefully there will be similar events in the near future at a day and time that I can make it for.
