So I take it Darren and Ben are both mostly into ARSE, but we have dick and he can deal with them.  ;D He may not have sheer pace but neither will anyone else after they have dealt with him.

Would be a bit of fun I think, not sure why guy wouldnt be competitive unless his girly knee is still giving him troubles.

You could wait for them a lap down and cause mysterious accidents...

edit.. Too late you've ruined it.

And mysterious accidents? More of a Marty thing. I just happen to be in the general area most off the time..

Eh, I could change that anytime.  No biggie. :)  I've got my karma....altho I have to update it regularly, it seems newcomers don't know the rule.  Or maybe you're Dicking with me, who knows...

I'm not sure at this point if either side gets to "pick", rather you declare your allegiance.  Like Darren did.

I did this sort of event in GPL with another league. We had a points table giving 1 point per place. 25 for 1st, 24 for 2nd etc. Highest points for the team won. That way everyone has to pull their weight :)

Darren, do you feel that it is pretty much guaranteed that the current fastest driver will win? In our league Guybrush will win and Marty will come second by .451sec nearly every race left to their own devices - ie not taken out by us or each other ;)

You haven't run many XGN races but I understand that it would be a similar result if you were to participate in one of our races ie You first, Guybrush second, Marty third. If this is not the case then ok. If it is the case then will the challenge races be interesting if the outcome is pretty much predetermined? Your points allocation for the entire field does address that concern to some extent however.

This is mostly academic interest on my part. I am most likely a spectator and my main beef is that AC doesn't support spectating :) - this challenge would be great fun to watch live!

I think this kind of points system works well for a one off team event.  For a championship it's not as good as you only have to have one DNF - disconnect, taken out, etc. - and it's almost impossible to catch up again even if you win every race.  Of course you can drop the worst round, but if you have to miss a round and then have one of the issues above it makes it difficult.

That's how I would see it working.

Hehe, I was about to recommend doing something like that.   Otherwise most of us would be around to fill the track, only :)
