The Buckyball Racing Club welcomes all pilots to the 3305 racing season! Ever wanted to fly really fast? Ever wanted to test your flying skills? Ever wanted to see what is possible with the old Sidewinder? Then you are right were you belong – at the Wiccan Ware Race
Fancy yourself as the greatest SRV driver the galaxy has ever seen (or just looking for a place to test and improve your flyving skills)? The Pomeche Ridge Challenge is the ultimate SRV time-trial, available in three stages of increasing difficulty. Click here to ride the ridge!.
The ultimate smuggling challenge returns, with racers invited to ship rare goods across the galaxy across a range of challenges, for the enjoyment of the event's (ex?-)mobster organisers and adoring cheerleaders alike. A variety of challenges are available, from the simpler Bootlegger Express to the full-scale Black Riband itself. Click here for all the 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.

All race dates may be subject to change. This is necessary to enable races to avoid periods of major galactic instability. It is expected that any changes will be announced at least a week in advance of the start of each race.
