As usual, my availability for a precise time and date depends on various unpredictable factors, so I will probably know at the very last...

I'm in!  The 19th or 20th of December sounds good to me!

What's your timezone? We often race around 20:00GMT.

KyLiE

My time zone is GMT+10.  If it means that more people can participate, I'm happy to get up early! :)

Cas

Oh, that's going to be quite early for you, KyLiE!  Anyway, I'm more comfortable on the 19th, but if it's to be the 20th, count on me too

If it's on the 20th I could participate as well.
Got to work the 19th.

Although I don't know if family matters are in my favour (we went in corrona lockdown today)

There are different options, but the best one seems to be "evening in Australia, morning in Europe and South America", which you can see in the attachment.

That could be Friday evening/Saturday morning, or Saturday evening/Sunday morning. A bit early for those in South America, or is it doable?

GMT -3 morning is doable for me, even if it's early -- just let me know the time slot in advance so I can set my alarm clock :D

Cas

Morning!  :o  Is there a thing called "morning"?  Ha, ha XD  Yeah, well, I'd have to start drifting my brain's time-zone starting tonight, as I'm usually an owl that goes to bed at 4am or 5am and sleep till midday. There are still a few days ahead so I can do it. Besides, it's not the same waking up early to work as waking up early to race! :D

You guys do whatever suits you best.  I'm usually up late at night but like I said, I'm happy to get up early for a race.

I think I'm available 19th and 20th. *Raises a bit of an unsure hand*

I'm actually kind of blocked on Saturday evening, it's a Christmas kind of thing.

But the comfortably late Central European morning suits me just fine.


Also, is anyone working on a track yet? Or do I need to bring the quarantine rooms back out?  ;) It looks like we did room 7 and 9 on that previous session.

Daniel3D

I'm not working on a track  8)
(just like to state the obvious)

But as I have never participated,
Can someone please give me a quick rundown of what I can expect?

I remember something with lap times but I didn't get the meaning..

(Still not sure if I can make it)
::)

We race on a looping track without going through the finish line, for a fixed amount of in-game (8m) or real-life (12m) time. The winner is the pipsqueak who has travelled further, counting laps first, and track tiles in case of draws. More info in the sticky thread.

At this point I would propose Saturday 19th, 11:00 to 12:00 GMT, which means:
  • Melbourne - Sat 22:00-23:00
  • Adelaide - Sat 21:30-22:30
  • Perth - Sat 19:00-20:00
  • Budapest / Rome - Sat 12:00-13:00
  • London - Sat 11:00-12:00
  • Rio de Janeiro - Sat 08:00-09:00
  • Buenos Aires - Sat 08:00-09:00
    I have not prepared a track, happy to drive on any Overdrijf-experiment, or other. Take ownership, and post the track on Friday morning in this new thread :)
