Turns out I can make it after all because I'm a bit ill and not feeling up to revision :p

When you say this is for the offroad class, does that mean things such as Trophy Trucks rather than rally cars such as the Tropos or Omnis?

It's for every class.

 

We'll be doing one race for every class and you can run any car you want in any class, with the exception of the Off Road class where the bikes and quads are not allowed.

 

So our race order will be:

 

Compacts

Coupes

Muscle

Off Road

Sedans

Sports

Sports Classic

Super

SUV

Utility

Vans

 

No bikes, because a: they don't handle right in GTA to start with and b: I don't like having to pull a wheelie constantly.

Race Club Presents, the Vapid Trophy Truck Trophy.



The format will be 5 (possibly 6) races hopefully running around 10 minutes each, each race will be proceeded by a qualifying session.



The Trophy Truck will be the preffeed vehicle but the Desert Raid will be allowed if you are too skint and/or tight to shell out for the Trophy Truck, although why you wouldn't have a Trophy Truck is beyond me as frankly they look and sound great.



You can sign up in teams if you would like to but this is entirely optional.



MEETUP



We shall meet up at the Vapid Dealership in Pillbox Hill (where your Mors Mutual Cars end up).



There is one basic rule at this stage, don't be a bell end. No cops, no blowing each other up etc.



The lobby will be available from 7pm UK Time and we will launch the first qualifying at 7:15. If you miss qualifying you can join in the full race but starting from the back of the grid.



QUALIFYING



Qualifying will be a 1 lap non contact race so your starting position for the actual race will be your finishing position on the qualifying race.



This isn't my preferred means of running it but I'm thinking for time this may be easier and we'll see how it works compared to our previous mehtods.



RACE STARTS



To start the actual race we will form up the grid in the order from the qualifying and I will start the race with a sticky bomb.



I will race each race starting from the back so ignore my qualifying performances.



AFTER RACING



Once the main racing is done there will be a short Trophy Truck based playlist for anyone who wants to hang around. This will be a mixture of various races and maybe a couple of Demo Derbies.



OTHER STUFF



Please add my PSN account doubleg213VANS when you sign up, if I don't have you added I can't invite you, the onus is on you to add me not the other way around.



If we run tight on time after races the early race start to run the race in order based on who is leading the series.



ANY QUESTIONS OR QUERIES PLEASE ASK IN HERE.

Oh sh*t, apologies. I forgot about this. So used to having a countdown timer for every event, that I usually dont really need to remember what have I RSVPed for. Again, sorry, I hope I haven't kept you waiting at the start.

No worries Z, might be worth using the PS4 Event invites. I was supposed to do it for Wednesday but forgot all about it.

 

We did spend a minute or two discussing whether you preferred to be Z or Murko though :)

 

Great night G :) I struggled with the Trophy Truck for some reason but its great fun to race with.

 

Got some Xero Gas promo shots before the racing begun...

RACE 1 - GRAND KON'NICHIWA

 

6gT5ucO.jpg

 

Race 1 took place on a dark and dusty on the tracks in and around Sandy Shores Airfield.

 

Verstappen took the first win of the night following as one after the other Trashbags, then Verstappen, then myself managed to throw the lead away on multiple occasions.

 

StarMonkey had a race best described as solitary as he toiled around at the back on his own during a night which would prove to be very inconsistent for him.

 

The main lesson learned from race 1 was the Trophy Truck has a tendency to suck you in with how well it copes with bumps so that you try that little bit too hard and then it goes very badly.

 

1st : Verstappen

2nd: doubleg213

3rd: Trashbags

4th: Junior Chubb

5th: StarMonkeyKiller

Fastest Lap: Verstappen

 

RACE 2 - REDWOOD FRIGHTS

996xCgp.jpg

Once again we saw multiple attempts to throw results away from all involved with the exception of StarMonkey who got a clean getaway early on and then proceeded to fly off into the distance while everyone else took turns to gain place before binning it. Usually in spectacular fashion.

 

Verstappen was a relatively safe 2nd before losing an argument with a rock which saw him drop to 5th in spite of setting the fastest lap.

 

1st: StarMonkeyKiller

2nd: Trashbags

3rd: doubleg213

4th: JuniorChubb

5th: Verstappen

Fastest Lap: Verstappen

 

RACE 3 - GRAND SAYONARA

 

PbxGkNE.jpg

Round 3 turned into two separate races as Verstappen and Trashbags got away cleanly leaving Chubb, StarMonkey and myself to indulge in several mistakes in a battle which can only be described as incompetent.

 

1st: Verstappen

2nd: Trashbags

3rd: StarMonkeyKiller

4th: doubleg213

5th: JuniorChubb

Fastest Lap: Verstappen

 

FINAL POSITIONS

uKSf1W2.jpg

With nothing between them at the finish I took the unprecedented step of awarding a shared 1st place between Trashbags and Verstappen.

 

Trashbags deserving of it for consistency and Verstappen for raw pace.

I did have a video but it got flagged for Copyright on YouTube even though it was a song covered by the Music Policies on there so until I resolve that I'm a bit stuck. Annoyingly I deleted the project files so I will have to make it from scratch anyway. Bloody youtube.

 

There are however a lot more photos. Which are viewable on imgur right here IMGUR GALLERY FOR THE EVENING

Great event G event but I think I enjoy road racing more.

 

I didn't get 5th due to the rock, there was a way faster line which made me miss the checkpoint, there was no inside barrier. Took me quite some corners to notice I missed it so I had to drive back. :/

 

First time I've driven the Trophy Truck outside of stunt tracks so I had no clue how it would go, didn't do the time trial before hand.

Race Club Presents a night of Auto Testing



Friday June 9th 2017



The format will be 3 autotests with the winner decided by the lowest total time for all 3 tests.



We are running 3 tests only as the format can lead to some waiting time. Should the format prove popular we'll possibly look at some longer events of this type in future.



When you are waiting please do not do anything which may impact on the other people during their runs.



For the same reason we are also limiting this to 8 people (including myself) only.



MEETUP



We shall meet up at the Benefactor Dealership in Vinewood



There is one basic rule at this stage, don't be a bell end. No cops, no blowing each other up etc.



The lobby will be available from 7pm UK Time and we will launch the first qualifying at 7:15. If you miss qualifying you can join in the full race but starting from the back of the grid.



THE TESTS



The tests will be run in a similar vain to our previous qualifying setup.



One sighting lap, one flying lap which will give your time and the third just to prevent any DNF.



JuniorChubb will lead the procession for the sighting lap and then run as last car so he can indicate when the cars should start their flying lap as we will run individually.



We will have a quick demo test first just to run through the procedure and make sure everyone is familiar with it.



Diagrams of the tests below. These are not to scale.

AFTER RACING



Once the main racing is done there will be a short playlist for anyone who wants to hang around and for some light relief after the more technical activities of the tests.



OTHER STUFF



Please add my PSN account doubleg213VANS when you sign up, if I don't have you added I can't invite you, the onus is on you to add me not the other way around.

For those who aren't aware of quite what Auto Testing is. It's more about accuracy and car control than speed, yes you need to do the tests quickly but if you are not accurate then it all goes very wrong very easily.

 

It's proper club level motorsport and a really popular starting ground. As well as the specials and kit cars you get all sorts of things doing them. I've done them in anything from a Toyota Corolla, various rear wheel drive Escorts, a Rover 25 and my BMWs.

 

Unlike a Ken Block Gymkhana you only get one go at it and no chance to edit multiple attempts together.

 

We aren't running anything as complex as this but it will give you an idea.

 

 

 

We'd need people working as observers to so anything a lot complicated so for now this is all we will do. In times perhaps we'll go further with it.

It's 8 only.

 

Cut and paste for the plans and then hadn't changed those bits.

 

In the past we've done this running a few classes on the night but for the first go I figured we'd stick just with sports.

 

First time around we did Compacts, Muscle and Sports. If things work and we went a bit further with it I'd maybe do something along those lines.

 

The only car rule is you must use the same car all night for this one.
