The Buckyball Racing Club
The Buckyball Racing Club was formed by a group of participants in the Buckyball Run series of races, after it was announced that the original organiser of the Buckyball Run was taking an indefinite break from doing so. The aim of the club is to continue to organise and race in Buckyball-style challenges.
We always welcome new participants, and there are also plenty of opportunities for anybody who wants to organise a race. Contact drakhyr, or post in our forum thread, if you're interested in running an event (or just have a good idea for a future race!).
The aim of Buckyball-style races is to be as inclusive as possible. The features of these races are:
- In systems accessible to all - no permit-locked systems
- Can be run at any time - time-trial / checkpoint-style races, that can be run at any time within the race period, and thus open to those in all time zones
- OK to run repeatedly - part of the excitement is trying to improve on your time!
- Open to any ship - this normally means no outposts as that would rule out large ships, but certain events will include outposts and thus cannot be run with larger ships; check the rules of each event
