S27 Sign up and Info - Rent-a-sports car
« on: February 21, 2019, 07:23:42 PM »
Sign ups are open for season 27 - "Rent a sports car and drive it like you stole it". The season starts MARCH 5.

To sign up, head over to the CAR DEALER and sign up (if you haven't logged in yet, you login with your GUID, e.g. 7656119xxxxxxxxxx, which is your steam ID or also in AC's race.ini. If in doubt, PM me and I'll tell you your GUID).

Cars
(from dearest to cheapest)
Lotus Evora S
BMW 1M Stage 3
Alfa Romeo 4C
Abarth 500 Assetto Corse
Ford Mustang 2015
BMW Z4 E89 Step1
Nissan Skyline GTR R34 V-Spec

Tracks
Paul Ricard WTCC
Silverstone International
Modena Fast
Thruxton
Tsukuba
Oulton Park International (No Chicane)
Mugello

Schedule
You can check out the season schedule here.

Format
The format's going to be like the trial season: 3 sprints, with races 2 and 3 in order of the previous results. There is an entrance fee of $300 each round (so the leaders won't necessarily be able to stay in the same car forever). There is the same fee deducted from your earnings for damage to the car, and a fine for causing an opening lap incident.

Points
25, 22, 20, 19, 18... etc down to 1.
1 point for pole position; 1 point for fastest race lap.

Don't sign up here - go to the car dealer and sign up there!

Hey Wally, I see when can afford any car from the start!  Do we keep it after each round?
I know you get less cash for finishing up the front but what is the point system?
:)

Thanks - I stuffed up the opening balance. Should be OK now - you can only afford the bottom 3 cars.
Like the Porsche trial, you lose your car every round, getting the Nissan by default, but then renting whatever you can afford.

The point system is 24,23,22.. down to 1, if that's what you mean.

Actually, I changed my mind, to reward the winners more. I'll make it 25, 22, 20, 19, 18...

And it costs $300 each round to enter (1st round already paid for).

I feel for you Rob  :( must be so frustrating ::) You would really like the car we're using on Thursday too. Cheers mate.
NEVER TOO OLD TO RACE ... being competitive can be a PROBLEM though.
