NOTICE: With all the excitement around the new Beyond Chapter 4 content that's coming at the end of 3304 it's been decided to put the Buckyball Racing Club's activities on hold now until 3305. We apologise for any disappointment this might cause but feel that people will be more engaged with our races again when they're feeling less distracted by all the new Q4 features (some of which we even hope to incorporate into new and exciting race concepts). We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for taking part in our 3304 season of races and hope to see many of you back on the leaderboard again next year. In the meantime, Fly Fast!
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.
See above re: notice about BRC activities now being suspended until 3305.

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.
