REAL LIFE TRACKS PART III
Wednesday 19th July 20:00 BST PS4
With the popularity of FR_Player-One's Real Life Tracks thread and the fun we had with the Real Life Tracks part I and II the Van Society are hosting another night of racing using the best Real Life Tracks from that thread and the best from elsewhere.
Vans Society run a Top gear Challenge night most Wednesdays, we will be using this platform as a starting point but opening up to all the non-Van Society members who have posted and contributed to the real Life tracks Thread as well as the rest of the GTAF community.
We will start with a quick meet up in Los Santos in our cars before the racing begins.
The first race of the night will be on the Top Gear Test Track, this will be run non-contact with drivers vying for the best lap time to get pole and decide grid positions in future races. From here a playlist with contact races of the best Real Life Tracks will be launched. At the start of every race we will re-arrange the grid based on the finishing positions from the last race. Players will also be put into groups of 4, these classes will be based on speed around the Top Gear track and vehicle choice.
We will start the night racing 'contact' but if poor racing etiquette is seen, or if people start bitching we will switch to non-contact or kick offending drivers.
We expect clean racing on the night (this is not a 'GTA Race' free for all) we all appreciate the tracks created and want to race around them, not play bumper cars. If you like to spin people out, try and squeeze two cars into a corner that can only fit one or use other cars as braking barriers do not sign up.
Curb boosting is also a big no no. Hitting the curbs/rumble strip on the racing line (entry/apex/exit of corners) is fine however weaving on the the rumble strip, surfing the rumble strip on straights and ignoring the racing line to hit a curb are things we do not want to see, warnings will be handed out for this.
Basic Racing Rules
- The first corner is crucial, do not attempt crazy overtakes here, just get round it safely.
- If you are responsible for spinning out another player, wait for them to recover before continuing to race.
- Do not PIT other racers.
- Do not ram other racers.
- Do not dive bomb other racers.
- Do not bob and weave on straights.
- No curb boosting unless part of the natural racing line.
- Failure to adhere to the rules will result in a warning followed by being kicked for repeat offending.
We will run all races in Sports Class and you will use the same car all night, each player must pick a different car. This will give different racers advantages on some tracks and disadvantages on others. It will also make it a whole lot easier to remember who is who as the night goes on. All cars can be fully modded and there are no bans on any vehicles.
