That looks like a blast!
Memorial Weekend Racing
May 24, 2029
Lobby opens at 9:00 PM (Eastern Time)
9:00 - 9:30 will serve as qualification for Race 1
Racing starts at 9:30 PM
Combos and Rules/Regulations
2 Races per Combo for a total of 8 Races (May adjust as we go based on experience and thrill factor)
Yes, you are allowed to adjust the power and weight on your vehicle
(Before making adjustments, your car must be in the group specified. E.g In the N200 race, you can not take a N100 car and increase the HP and reduce the weight so it becomes a N200 car. In the stock settings, the car must come from the specified group.)
You may change your vehicle between Race 1 and Race 2 of each combo
Keep it clean - as much as you can
(after some testing I decided that Colorado Springs will not be suitable for pack racing)
I will not be available on Thursday to host a practice session, but anyone can open a lobby and play around - Thank you
Any questions, let me know
No interest in this one?
I have run some practice laps to remember track layout. There were 5 of us in a @Timlour hosted lobby last night. I intend to be present on race night.
Early practice open to run Combos 4, 3 and 2
Was planning on being there but the update is taking it sweet time to copy. Be there when I can.

All, I was thinking of a Labor Day Shuffle Race Event. Have to iron out the details but the [last 3 digits] total time of the race determines the next track and car class, thus making it a truly random. (This requires me to put together a spread sheet for behind the scenes control but it would be easy to do.) Additionally, the winner picks car within the randomly selected class (one make&spec as normal for SNAIL). Eligible car classes for random possibility may look like this: N100, N200, N300, N400, N500, Gr4, Gr3, GrX. (See below post for update).
EDIT: The first race will be determined by fast lap. Warm up to race time is the time it takes to update room settings, 90 seconds OR for a racer to go buy the chosen car. Then race and repeat.
Like this message to register your willingness to participate. We need enough to have 1 room/lobby. Race length and other details TBD if interest is sufficient. Even with a few of us SNAIL fellows, the lobby could be filled by non-SNAIL randoms.
Labor Day SNAIL Shuffle
Sept 6, 2020
The basic principle is explained in the post directly above & in spoilers below. Start time is 9 EST; 1/2 hour earlier than normal. We’ll start when room is sufficiently full, latest 9:30
Spoiler: On the fly
Some details to be handled on the fly. Edit: updates-see several posts down. Currently will be 10 min race format (endurance) with reverse grids. Cars over $1M discouraged unless unanimously approved.
Spoiler: How it works
Edit: see post several down.
Couple of questions.
Are they one make races or any car in the class with bop?
GrX is a very diverse group of cars, how do you classify which one?
Nice idea Rob. I'll be out of town tomorrow til Monday, otherwise I would have tried to make it. Good luck, and hope you get a decent turn out.
Update: changes underlined
Labor Day SNAIL Shuffle
Sept 6, 2020
Lobby opens at normal SNAIL Sunday time. Racing starts when room fills to 12 or latest 30 past the hour.
1 make races. Spec. BOP off. If you don't have the car, exit, buy and pray you make it back in.
10 minute races, tire wear, fuel use, initial fuel may be used, shortcut penalty
Races are random by taking last 3 digits of total race time and referencing numbers that I previously assigned to a.) all cars and b.) all tracks in our SNAIL cars & tracks spreadsheet. (Originally winner picked car but this would take too long)
There may or may not be very brief warm up period. Don't be disappointed either way as it's the same for everyone. In any case, entering track is allowed.
In case we get a car that bounces off rev limiter (N100 car at Sarthe no chicane) the fastest lap time decoded to give new random car (from previous race) will be used.
Event organizer reserves the right to make necessary adjustments to set-up as deemed necessary to iron-out any wrinkles.
Results of 2020 Labor Day Shuffle. If Duce hadn't missed a race or we drop 1 race, he would have won! Thanks to everybody who participated. The fuel settings probably caught many out - well, me too. I had no idea what the settings would bring.
Probably won't make this event because I'm already running in a Labor Day event for ARL.
Sounds like fun. Great idea with no practice. I’ll be on but may be late.
I want in on the holiday event.
