Sunday Cup Online Race Event

This is the home of the Sunday Cup Online Race Event or SCORE for short.

 

This is planned to be a weekly get-together primarily for those on the forums, but anyone is invited.

 

We only ask you race as clean as possible and have fun.

 

If you are familiar with GT Saturdays and Monday Night Racing, you know what to expect, this is kind of a mix of these two events.

This is planned to be pretty informal, with people coming and going so points is really not workable.  Perhaps just a shoutout to the winners of various races would fill the need for recognition?

 

Cars will be low-to mid-powered, usually very affordable, and no worries of having to tune.  This is a (usually) no-tuning, stock-car event.  We usually use voted tracks, though I do usually choose the starting and ending tracks myself; we usually end at the Nurburgring for a couple of laps...

 

Want to join us?  Join the "Cup Racing" Club (number 1000953).  You are welcome.

 

I hope to see you there.  Thanks.

dm you might want to just pick a % power limiter that is valid to use.  like <=5% or something like that.  give people something concrete to know whether they are violating the spirit of the rules or not.

 

I may join these occasionally if time permits.

 

what I like is that you are mixing the Saturday & Monday styles of racing and it is appropriately smack-dab in the middle of them!  nice idea.

 

only troublewith me participating is that I already get up on Sundays to race w/ Oz and it may be hard to "negotiate" for more time Smiley Wink

@exX, oh there is nothing worse than choosing which racing buddy to leave out in the pits!

Hey DM, I plan on getting on about 11 west coast time. I was going to have a look at the cars to see their various weight, perf pts, and HP. If I notice anything that might help out or think of an idea to help keep everyone close to your regs. I will let you know.

SIDE NOTE : Although we are very grateful to DM for salvaging this series. Along with a great theme. We have Andy to thank for it. Technically, he got it started. So let's not leave him out of the credits.

Thanks Andy & DM!

As for the time slot...

With me being a big NASCAR junkie, the 1:00-4:00 slot that was talked about isn't going to work for me very well. I'm usually watching them go around in circles during that time. Smiley Wink

Especially the Daletona 500 that's coming up! Smiley Very Happy

 

For what it's worth, 6-7pm Eastern is an ideal start time for me. I'm usually in bed by 9-10pm Eastern.
