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.
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.
