The Road Rally Racing championship is here!
Road Rally Racing is a championship series for racing SRVs on twisty courses around surface outposts. This is not the long-distance, straight-line "fliving" of previous SRV events, this is proper driving with plenty of turns and scenery as racetracks visit every corner of the outpost. Over the three-month season competitors will tackle six varied courses, with the champion being the competitor with the fastest combined time.
Road Rally Racing season 1 runs from 1st October to 31st December 3303. Click here for a season overview and rules details, and here for season 1 maps and entry details.
Buckyball Racing Club brings you a race in honour of the ancient norse religion originating from the northern part of the European continent on Earth. Racers are invited to try two courses: one as a bird seeking to beat Ratatoskr, the squirrel who runs up and down the world tree Yggdrasil to carry messages between the eagle and the hawk Veðrfölnir (both perched atop Yggdrasil) and the dragon Níðhöggr; the other to slither around the nine worlds as a snake.

The A* Challenge is simple: Fly from Sol (or Wolf 359) to Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy, and record your time for doing so.
Of course, this being the endurance challenge of the racing world, there's a bit more to it than that, including maintaining focus for a trip that will many hours in the cockpit, and the perils of route plotting in the galactic core.
The A* Challenge is open for the long term. Make the run at any time, with no deadline. For full details on rules and how to enter, see the race thread here.
