    S.N.A.I.L. Weekly Kart Races

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This really cool picture of the Karts is brought to you by @Chiochan :tup:

    Next Race April 1st, 2014 - 9:00 P.M. Eastern Time
    Rules

    We expect all drivers to follow our OLR Rules and pursue good racecraft at all times. If you're not sure what good racecraft is, watch this video. It can be summed up in one simple 'Golden Rule' of motorsports: It is the responsibility of the overtaking driver, meaning the car that is attempting to execute the pass, to make sure that the pass is made cleanly and incident free. If you don't agree with this rule or don't think it applies to you, this is not the group for you.

    Drafting is a large part of Kart racing, as such the top two drivers will not be allowed to 'bump draft' each other. Leap Frog drafting is perfectly fine, though. This will hopefully prevent the drivers out front from driving into the sunset.

    When
    • Race Day: Tuesday evenings
    • Race Time: 9:00 P.M. Eastern Time
    • Where: S.N.A.I.L. Weekly Kart Races open lobby
    Where
    • Room Name: snailracing.org - Weekly Karts
    • Room Number(s): will be posted approximately one half hour before race time.
    Karts



      • Racing Kart Jr. ........ (11 HP - 11.0 ft-lb Torque - 378 PP - after engine rebuild)
      • Racing Kart 100 SPL .... (23 hp - 12.9 ft-lb Torque - 465 PP - after engine rebuild)
      • Racing Kart 100 ........ (23 hp - 12.9 ft-lb Torque - 465 PP - after engine rebuild)
      • Racing Kart 125 ........ (30 HP - 15.9 ft-lb Torque - 513 PP - after engine rebuild)
      • Red Bull Racing Kart 125 (30 HP - 15.9 ft-lb Torque - 513 PP - after engine rebuild)
      • Racing Kart 125 SPL .... (30 HP - 15.9 ft-lb Torque - 511 PP - after engine rebuild)
      • Shifter Kart ........... (51 HP - 19.4 ft-lb Torque - 590 PP - after engine rebuild)
    Weekly Format
    • 4 Races (15 minutes each, with a 4-6 minute qualifying session per race)
    • 4 Tracks
    • 1 Kart per week

    For GT6 the Karts will be rotated weekly starting with the 125 Shifter Kart. The following week will be the 125's (either of them is fine) the third week being the 100's (again either is fine), then the Jr. Kart. The week after the Jr. Karts we'll revert back to the Shifter Kart to start the rotation again.

    Prizes

    The top racer from each week wins the right to pick, a new track for the next weeks races. Two other racers will be chosen to pick two more tracks with the fourth track being an oval of some sort.

    Transmission tuning is allowed, so any eligible GT6 track can be chosen, with the following exceptions:

    Any Cape Ring configuration (too bumpy and the jump is a nightmare in Karts)
    Trial Mountain (way too bumpy)

    The list of tracks that are allowed (come on PD) or acceptable for this series.

    Points

    1st - 16 points
    2nd - 15 points
    3rd - 14 points
    4th - 13 points
    5th - 12 points
    6th - 11 points
    7th - 10 points
    8th - 9 points
    9th - 8 points
    10th - 7 points
    11th - 6 points
    12th - 5 points
    13th - 4 points
    14th - 3 points
    15th - 2 points

    Pole position will net you an extra point and getting all four poles will give you a bonus point for a perfect night of 69 points :odd:

    N.B. Bump drafting is not allowed between the driver in 1st Place and the Driver in 2nd place at any time during the race. eg. 3rd place can bump 2nd, but 2nd cannot bump 1st. We do this so the first two drivers can't walk away from the field. Hopefully giving us a little closer group at the front.

    Settings
    • Boost: Off
    • Penalty: Weak (and Effective for Free Run)
    • Race Finish Delay: 90sec
    • Visible Damage: Off
    • Mechanical Damage: Light
    • Slipstream Strength: Real
    • Tire Wear/Fuel Consumption: Normal
    • Grip Reduction: Real
    • Vehicle Tuning: Unrestricted
    • Driving Aids: None.

    How to join
    Post in the thread you want to join.

    For the time being we'll be racing in open lobbies. The room name will be posted approximately 1/2 hour before the race.

    Why join us
    • Because Karts are sooooo much fun to race and are a great tool for learning how to:
      • race in a pack
      • brake in a straight line
      • see the fastest line in a corner
      • race fast
      • ...
    • Because you want a nice relaxed atmosphere to have some fun times.

    You can run b spec seasonal events, but you have to run them a bunch of times because none of them are long enough or use owens method of setting a race up of the right length, in your lounge at a track without pits and just let it go :(

    Also works to send Bob on B-Spec Seasonals like Suzuka or Indy, by the way.

    Show up even if you do not have enough miles, you will still learn and have fun.

    Game won't let a kart into B-Spec races or tracks. Always get frustrated when I can't figure out what appears so simple to everyone else.
    I'll be there tomorrow night but with only 50 some odd miles on it.

    Tried the 4 tracks: Top Gear - 1:42 Suzuka - 1:14. London - 1:09 and Rome - 1:54. wide open for most of the laps.

    Sorry Tex, was likely my explanation. for B Spec you can only do the Seasonal Events, maybe 10 laps at a time per event.

    For just letting him trundle around the track, go into your own lounge, set up a race on a track with no pits and let the kart putt around.

    See you tomorrow!

    Which Kart are we on? The 125?

    Tex's times have to be on the Junior, there is no way I pulled a 1:35 in the 100 if he was that far back.

    Seen TEX inna kart...It is not just the wind that is fast in Texas, it is also Tex inna kart!
