Title: Live Races 2019
Post by: dreadnaut on February 13, 2019, 07:33:25 PM
Time to get one organised again ;D
For those who are new, read about the "Le Stunts" format (http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?topic=2801.0) that we usually follow.

I'm interested. I suppose we would shoot for somewhere later in the European evening so it would still be reasonable in South America? (Depending on interest of course.)

I could be interested too, but in this period I can't assure my presence for a precise date and time, even at a short notice...  :-\

Last time (http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?topic=3366.0) we raced at 17:00 Buenos Aires / 18:00 Brasilia / 20:00 London / 21:00 Rome and Budapest. Because of coordination delays, it usually takes an hour, or 1.5h if we race two tracks.

Hey, count me in!  Sorry that I didn't post here before, especially considering that I had been the one who mentioned the possibility of another of these events some time ago in the shoutbox. Now I was reading the news at ZakStunts and that got me back here. I better try to wake the idea up!  I'm up for virtually any time of the day as long as we've agreed with time :)

There is a chance I may have a birthday party on the 16th, but I think it's more likely that it won't interfere. I will confirm soon :)

I have a bit of a regular thing on Saturday evening, but I think I can make that go away. I'd also be able to do Friday or Sunday.

Oh, Friday works for me as well!

I have to confirm that, so in the case I would join you at the last moment, regardless of when...

Now I've been confirmed. My friend is celebrating his birthday on Friday 15 in the evening. I'm free the rest of the weekend :)

Should we aim at Sunday 17th, afternoon/evening then?

- Afullo
- Cas

- Overdrijf

Who else is in?

That one would be OK for me. Also, if it were on Friday, as long as it's early enough, it's possible too, just in case that's still contemplated. In fact, if it were for me, it does not even have to be a weekend, as long as I know in advance. But yes, Sunday afternoon/evening is fine :)

Meee!!  8) Any time on Sunday (or even Saturday after ~8PM GMT) is fine for me this weekend.

Please let us know when an exact date and time are set. My availability is this:

- On Friday, I have this birthday party in the evening, but would be able to race in the afternoon or earlier (like, before 11pm GMT)
- On Saturday, I have the whole day, yet it'd be best if I know what time it'll be in advance
- On Sunday, I have something to do, but I can do it at the time I choose, so it's important to know what time the race will be to arrange
- In general, if the time and date are set in advance, I am available any day

 So Sunday 20:00 GMT? Dreadnaut started this thread, would you do the honors of designing the track?

EDIT: In case we feel like a round 2, would that be on the same track, or shall I volunteer to make a backup?

Sounds good!

Next live race is then on Sunday 17th, 17:00 Buenos Aires / 17:00 Brasilia / 20:00 London / 21:00 Rome and Budapest. We'll meet on the forum chat (http://forum.stunts.hu/chat/) at that time.

Attached are two tracks, although they are actually the same: I made "Sundown" first, but I put down the finish line in the wrong direction, and discovered that it was also an interesting track. So "Sunrise" was born! I think they allow different approaches, but they also have a few nasty bits ::)

For both I would add the rule "The loop must be looped".

As usual, feel free to practice on the tracks, the cars for both is the Porsche P962.

Great, then! :)

So, like before, will there be a last-moment modification to the tracks to prevent old replays being sent?

Yep, as usual there will be a small change that affects the actual track, invalidating any pre-recorded replay. E.g., adding some ice or some dirt, a tunnel, a slalom, etc.

Only thing, please don't remove the icy segments which mark the lap line—we'll need those for scoring!

Minor note: when I google it Brasilia appears to be in the -3 bracket with Buenos Aires, that would make it 17:00 Brasilia as well. I'm guessing last time there was some daylight savings time going on.

Yes, some parts of Brazil have DST from November to February...

Skid. It's raining a lot so I have to go kayaking this weekend. Yes, that's like a law or something. It looks like the others have a preference for the Sunday. In that case I'm not making it back in time. I might just be able to visit the chat from my phone to cheer you guys on. Thanks for choosing the Sunday so I could join, I was really looking forward to it, but this is rare enough that I shouldn't let the opportunity slip. (That's of course true for a Stunts live race as well, but that makes it a full day vs an hour and a half.)

I'll try harder to make it next time.  :-\

There's no arguing with propitious weather, go, have fun, bring us back a cool picture —e.g., kayaking through a cork l/r!  And if you come back early enough, you know where to find us :)

(thanks for spotting the wrong time, post above fixed)
