    Buckyball Racing Club presents: Buckey Ball Raleigh (15th - 17th March) midweek madness

    Three stations. Three days. This is no ordinary Buckyball Rally. This is Midweek Madness. This is Buckey Ball Raleigh!

    Dash from Buckey Ring in NLTT 57216 via Ball Dock in CD-37 641 to Raleigh Orbital in Ross 720. Observe the fuel restrictions in force for the race. Do not observe the speed limit.

    The race runs from Tuesday March 15th to Thursday March 17th 3302. When it's over why not visit the bar in nearby Narita's Inheritance (5Ls from jump-in point) for a stunning view of the star?

    New to racing?
    Please refer to the following instructional video, generously commissioned by Anthony and Enoch Lonnegan:

    Only entries made in Open play will be eligible for the race leaderboard.

    Entries must include:
    • Your CMDR name.
    • Your forum name if not the same as your CMDR name.
    • Your ship type.
    • Your ship name.
    • Game mode (Open, Solo, Private Group).

    Screenshots
    Screenshots may be taken using the in-game screenshot function (F10 key) or your choice of third-party software. If you are recording a video of your entry you can submit snapshots of individual frames showing each checkpoint.

    The race winner will be asked to provide a "beauty shot" of the winning ship, which will be displayed for all to see at the end of the event. The recommended way to take a beauty shot is to jump to a system with a bright star (eg F class star) and orientate your ship so that the star fills the top left quadrant of the screen. Then switch to the classified camera (default key Control-Alt-Space) and position it to show your ship illuminated by the star's light.

    Oh go on then. CMDR Heat Shield will be racing in a ship TBC. Probably Asp, Cobra mk3 or Hauler as that is all he has

    What's with the no entry sign at the start of your post - anyone else seeing that? Permissions issue? Edit: Fixed now

  3. #3
    That would have been due to the banner not showing properly. It should do now.

    CMDR Stern Winter signing up for the eco-rally. Ship to be announced later

    I've temporarily hung up my racing goggles and lycra in favour of cornish pasties and a hard hat.

    I shall return once I've struck Palladium!

    In the meantime I'll leave you with this and wish you all a very pleasant raleigh.






    P.S. accidentally posted this in the wrong thread earlier

    At the moment I'm a bit out in the countryside for some sightseeing in my new Asp (by the way, what a lovely heavy-bottomed ship, I'm really liking it), but I only planned a short route to Pencil Nebula and back so I should be back in time for some action.

    Maybe this is the right one to take the sidey out again for a ride ...

    Please CMDRs,

    That race is only for PC players or XBOX players (like me) can participate?

    Thanks for reply!!

    Sadly the "Sailfish" will not be among the ships on the track this time. As it has once again set its sail for the other side of the galaxy.
    But good luck to all of you inside the Bubble or to which have a split personality and can be in two places at once.

    God speed Commanders.

    Are you able to take screenshots and then email them or post them here (as described in the OP)? If so, I don't personally see why not.

    And if you're not sure how to acquire the screenshots from an Xbox One, I found the answer before for someone who wanted to enter Buckyball-9

    This method should allow you to save your screenshots and then publish to twitter/one-drive. From there it should be relatively simple to copy them onto imgur, etc.
    I'm in BTW, the DWE basecamp that I'm heading for is two days later than I expected, so I've got a couple of spare days for the raikobot at the canonn CGs and to enter this race.

    CMDR: the raikobot
    Ship: not the nomad
    Ship Class: Asp Explorer

    Thanks everybody for reply.


    Is very easy to take screenshots in XBOX, so I will try to participate of this race. I am very excited because is my first event of this kind.

    Excellent. If you can take a screenshot you can enter. The more, the merrier.

    Intent to race:

    CMDR Cookiebot
    Hauler "Cookiebox"
    (mainly restricted by budget, might make it interesting though)

    Intent to race...

    CMDR JAK
    The Mini Enigma (Hauler)

    Guess who crashed his ship on a 2.5G planet, 50 KLYs from the bubble.

    From what my spreadsheets tell me, this race will go to a Hauler or Asp Explorer, so you're probably good.
    edit: Of course, I was of the opinion that an Imp Eagle should have won Robin's event last week, and it didn't even get entered.

    It's midnight. Go! Start racing.
