Excuse my noobish question but I wonder, if this is a racing server, why tournaments are FIFA world cup style instead of FIA F1 or GT1 style?.

I think is more proper of a racing server have tournaments based on sports racing chanmpoinships where all teams or racers can compete in a race or event at same time, instead of having tournaments based on sports where only 2 teams can fight at same time, racing is not that kind of sport so that's why racing championships are made with a different setup that football or tennis or chess or any other two-teams matches sports.

Thanks for your attention and waiting for your answers.

well said. last time we had this format. depending of players count, maybe we take other style.

--------------------------------------------

1st tourney had elimination stages each ruond players were eliminated

for example 40 ppl start
 1st round 10 slowest out
30 pll in roiund 2
 next 10 out
round 3, 20 ppl left
 this time 5 out
round 4 15 to go
 3 slowest out
12 guys left
 3 slowest out
9 to go
 3 out
6 in fight for top5
 1 out
5 are left
each next round slowest one gets eliminated
final 1 vs 1

--------------------------------

other option was way how i used scoring in NASCAR races
noone eliminated, winner got most points, then 2nd place, 3rd place etec less.. one who overal collected the most, won
this was very good option for players who were not able to take all runs, yet still count fight for win

We did normal championship points before, but that was my least favourite format. After a few rounds it was clear that only 3 or 4 players could win.

So the vehicle voting is up. I've excluded the vehicles chosen the last two years. Not ideal, but I don't have a lot of time to change things up.

Don't think we'll get 80 this time around

"Signed up players (69/80)"

You are right, it's nowhere close to 80  :L
Of course now we'll have to see if people will actually participate in the races lol

I still don't know when will the event start. If it starts before the 18 July, feel free to remove me from the list, as I wont be at home until then. If not, I would be appreciated if you could tell me the accurate day.

Yes, it will start around then. Sometime after the 16th. Remember you will have a few days after that to do your first race anyway.

Think I might replace some of the slower cars with sports cars. Which ones would you want replaced?

I'll get rid of the two industrial cars and the kart, unless there are any objections.
