I have been racing in GTAO for XboxLive and noticed that the max no. of laps in a race is 99. Really, 99 laps? (is what I said to myself) Then I seriously considered it, so I'm going to try to put together a main event of sorts, for the Down the Drain track because it is a favorite, it plays out like this:
1) Announce the event and have interested racers RSVP then announce the race and everyone that is able to show up on the posted day of the race will receive 1 of 7 positions (I will have the 8th). I would send out invitations at a specific time to the racers that have RSVP'd, starting with the first and skipping to the next if a racer is not able to attend or has changed his/her mind.
2) Try to get the event sponsored to broadcast on CCTV. I have practiced the run and it takes approximately 40 mins per 30 laps so the race will be roughly 1hr 20mins, give or take.
3) Set the standard for the race: No wrong way driving and no PIT maneuvering (or anything of the sort).
I would like to point out that you're going to get tired, if you can't even fathom 99 laps or an hour and a half of racing this isn't for you. I don't plan on dropping out of the race so be ready, get a practice run in that gives you time to recover for the actual event, if I get proper feedback to this it will go down as soon as this Saturday at 6pm.
