    :: Allibubba Ironman Participation Challenge ::


    A contest to honor GTP WRS's 15th anniversary and @Allibubba99 's awesome 151 week consecutive streak of participating in time trials.

    Format

    • Participate in week 13 time trial and submit a lap to Fetchy (all official streak counts begin week 13);
    • Repeat in week 14 and ad infinitum until you're the last man to keep the streak alive;
    • Claim your prize, choice of combo*
    (*be reasonable, if you want to race go karts on a rally track or a Bugatti on comfort hards in the rain you may get vetoed)

    The Allibubba Streak

    GT5 Week 35 - Week 145
    GT6 Week 1 - Week 41

    151 Consecutive weeks participating in WRS time trials spanning from October 11, 2011 through November 3, 2014.

    :cheers:

    YGBSM....I'm IN...(oh Lord What have I done)...but I still reserve my Bete Noir role as to the privilege to wave the BS flag when a contrived combo is offered.....LMAO.

    I just realized that I will be out of this in June, it is our annual road trip to Utah, and we drive, will be gone 10 or 11 days. :censored:

    and no my wife will not let me bring my PS4. :lol:

    Work takes me away from home, sometimes for weeks/months at a time. If I manage to be the last man standing then it's bad news for bank account. It will also be bad news for you guys, as you'll be driving Nissan Cubes around Midfield Raceway for a week (c'mon Kaz, let this be a possibility).

    I'd like to see you guys having a go at it.
    I myself can't compete because I have too many periods where I'm, work related, away from home for 2 weeks.

    Good luck to you guys. :cheers:

    Than you for the recognition! It was very tough to keep it going at times. My wife was in Med school during the streak so there wasn’t any vacations! This will be fun to watch! Good luck to all! Go WRS!!!!!

    Quick question, I did participate in week 13 but didn't turn in my lap because I never got a clean one in and would have been disqualified, if I would have turned it in I still would have my streak, but because I was proactive and didn't want to waste everyone's time I didn't turn it in, does that mean I am now out of the challenge?

    Sadly yes it does. We need an objective rule for what qualifies and *submit a lap to Fetchy* is part of that rule.

    You did the right thing by not submitting a lap if you knew it was dirty. :tup:

    No problem, figured it was worth an ask. especially because a DQ'd submitted lap did not remove you from competition.

    Honestly I wasn't going to win it anyways, just sucks to be out so early.

    Don't fret too much--the point is really to encourage some consistent participation and you're already doing that. Team event starts very soon so have fun with it:cheers:.

    Week two is in the books. Sing out if you're not on the 2nd post in this thread but think you should be.

    @Argon is out, so sadly he won't have the opportunity to choose his combo. :indiff:

    I'm gutted, I always wanted to put my own TT together :p

    Business trip to Mexico put paid to my TT activities and along with almost no WiFi for the week I was struggling to do anything meaningful. Hated to drop out though :(

    Yep, sometimes life gets in the way of the important stuff... like racing. Now that it is getting warm here and the wonderful spring weather, I'm sure I will be missing out on more racing stuff than I would like. Especially since we are doing some renovations to our house :scared:.

    He is from Georgia, they barely know what snow is, and when they do get some, like an inch or two it literally shuts down the whole state. :lol:

    Here we get 12 inches of snow they debate on if school should be canceled or not.
