    That explains why when I was in live at the exact start location as you I kept getting rocks in front of me. I wondered how you did that.

    Yeah, I just noticed that too. I may have to declare beta (and my own run) invalid. What do people feel about that?

    SRV name (shame you can't actually name them) 'Did I leave the gas on'

    LOL, I know that view well!

    Stupidly I've left my scoreboard spreadsheet at work so everyone will have to wait until Monday to see the results of the first weekend's racing but do please feel free to share any screenshots, videos, first impressions of the course and/or tales of misadventure here in the thead.

    Happy racing and stay on the ridge!

    If it puts me at the top of the table YES, if not don't worry about it.

    Awesome. Bloomin' heck ... you managed to make up some serious time on the Black section there. I'm guessing you didn't get stuck on the final "wall" like I did. I may have to start coming up with names for certain sections of this course!

    Actually my average on the black section was almost half of the first two. Had a few goofs, so far from perfect. Got it all recorded, video coming up in a bit.
    Oh, and that last wall you actually don't have to climb. The finish line is before it.

    Yeah, I kinda meant the wall before the wall - there's a bit just before the finish that's too steep to climb, I failed to jump across to its top and then had to slither round the side instead. But yes, for clarity, in my video that final bit I climb on top off in order to look back the way I've come ... you don't have to climb that!

    Anywho, here's the full run! Enjoy!

    I've shaved 5 minutes off my latest time for the Blue run!

    Edit: Got the Blue run down to 15 minutes and 1 second, that's with loads of spins and crashes so I'm just looking for that near perfect run.

    Race looks good. I haven't had much time to play recently so have struggled to get even one run in when I see a BB race that only lasts a week. By the time I have got a ship sorted, flown to the start and saved the bookmarks the race has usually finished.

    I am rubbish at flyving but enjoyed the 'falling down a mountain' srv race a while ago and need a break from working my alt acc slowly to Beagle Point so this will make a change.
