    Welcome to the DeLorean Back to the Future Day on October 21st.
    This special day is already followed by over 40,000 people on Facebook;

    https://www.facebook.com/October212015BTTF

    Special Stage Route 5_26.jpg

    People from all over the world will celebrate this day in one way or
    another because that is the date Marty and Doc travels to in
    Back to the Future Part II (1989).

    The BTTF trilogy of films are cult classics and there will be one race
    held in the GT6 community in honor of Oct 21st, 2015.

    It is a one-make DeLorean race with tuning prohibited.
    The power limiter must be used in order to reduce the BHP
    to what the car had in the trilogy (the original DeLorean),
    namely 130 BHP.



    Race regulations: DeLorean race.
    Qualifying: 7 minutes
    Race: 40 minutes
    Comfort: Hard
    Aids: Only driving line

    delorean day go.jpg

    The race is already added as a club event so if you want to practice
    ahead of time just open up the pre-set lobby and give it a go.


    GT6 has been updated to version 1.21 and the DeLorean time
    machine in the movie trilogy requires 1.21 gigawatts of electricity,
    needed for the nuclear reaction via the plutonium that it runs on.
    :)

    Coincidence? I think not.




    thanks for driving the Sambabus, Paul ;)

    Doc
    : Well, there are plenty worse places to be than the Old West.
    I could've ended up in the Dark Ages.

    Race #1 (Dry & Sunny)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Marty:
    Doc! You're not gonna believe this, we gotta go back to 1955.
    Doc: I don't believe it!



    [​IMG]

    1955 Doc: Yes, well, I'm hoping to see some lightning tonight.
    1985 Doc: Oh there's going to be plenty of rain all right.



    Race #2 (100% rain)
    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]
    Doc: You've got to get out and change clothes.
    Marty: Right now? It's pouring rain.
    Doc: Wait five more seconds.
    ...
    Doc: Right on the tick. Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
    Too bad the post office isn't as efficient as the GT6 weather service.




    Race #3 (Dry)
    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]
    Marty: Where are we? When are we?
    Doc: We're descending toward Fuji Valley, Japan, at 8:29 pm, on Saturday, January 17th, 2015.
    Marty: 2015? You mean we're in the future !?




    [​IMG]
    Marty: I had a horrible nightmare. It was terrible.
    Lorraine: Well, you're safe and sound now. Back on the good old Fuji grid.
    Marty: The Fuji grid !!?

    I would be very interested in such an event even though it is set with Racing compound, light damage and no PP restrictions...
    For info, the Dome has to to be one of my favorites when racing PP400-CM.
    As for the DeLorean, it very efficient @ PP500-SH...
    Weight and bhp restrictions seem to be enough for leveling the cars though...
    looking forward to this...

    I am so used to driving the Z8 with 500pp/SH/HD at this point that I wanted to do something completely different.
    If this event is successful we could run it again with different tyres and pp restrictions. :)
    Good, I was wondering about that myself. I tried them both for a bit with the settings above but need to drive some more to gain more knowledge.
    Awesome :dopey:

    Race with the Delorean first. Then you can use it's time traveling capabilities to return to the beginning and start the event over again using the Dome. :D



    Only just spotted this thread @JockeP22. Interesting car choices. :tup:

    I'm interested too, but I'll just be able to racing again in January 2015, probably...

    Jocke, why did you prohibited the use of wings? Wings would give an autentic race look.

    OK. But the Delorean can have wings, so why forbidden the wings for Delorean?

    Because the DOME can't. It's a measure of balance.

    The DeLorean is nice to drive stock, with SS tires. :)

    Great sounding event.. I'd like to sign up for it :D

    I like both cars equally too... this decision needs time..lol

    What are the tuning/PP restrictions? I see you wrote "Free Tuning" and just wondered how free :idea:

    So both cars are locked to 300 HP and 1100 KG, on RH tires, for Daytona and Deep Forest.

    Sticking with the DeLorean!

    Hey Jocke, I have a question. What do you mean by 300HP/1100 KG? Are those limits or minimums?

    I'll give it a go Jocke, but will depend on which day and time.

    Spent some time yesterday tuning the DeLorean, I'm amazed at how this car bites down in the corners under acceleration, even on Deep Forest.

    Should be a fun race. :)

    I like your ideas Jocke.

    The Dome seems to be the unpopular choice at the moment so I will drive that to even things up a bit ;)

    I tested my DMC and I found it running 1:56 on the Daytona Road course.

    Also, guy above me made a nice choice.

    Tell you what Harsk, if you by some divine miracle should make this grid I just might consider to allow you to mount a wing on your car.
    But only you Harsk, no one else. :mischievous:
    Follow the BHP/Weight settings and the rest is up to you. :tup:
    300 BHP is the maximum and 1100 kg the minimum. They both need extra horse power, Dome needs ballast while DeLorean needs weight reduction.
    Great Scott! :eek:
    Great Mik :)
    You and me then, copes.
    I'm always fond of the underdogs and root for them when I can. So I will also go with the Dome.
    As long as it's capable of going 88 miles per hour and able to outrun the Libyans I'll be okay.

    I managed some low 1:57s at Daytona and low 1:21s at Deep Forest. Should be close enough, things will be different with other cars on the track, especially Smiley. :lol:

    You can't put a wing on the DeLorean, there will be no room for Mr. Fusion... :cool:

    @JockeP22 maybe someone can run a Sambabus just to give people incentive to drive faster? :lol:
