I'll update the OP later.
OK, everything that could have gone wrong in the hosting of this event at some point did go wrong. People however seemed to like it a lot, and would not only like to participate in these races, but some seemed interested in the creation of them as well. Let's keep the thread open as a place to talk about things people liked, didn't like, and ideas for more to come.
Round 1: Southern and sertyla
Round 2: nukepossum and iammateo (If JumpingJack didn't respawn at the finish line to rocket us!)
Round 3: Uh, does anybody remember?
Rules and Guidelines
I want a Pod Racing GM with the Pod Racers from Star Wars as a new vehicle!
