    Fly to Ao Kang 3A Dock at Zalyotin Penal Colony and enter buggy
    drive to the inner courtyard ( see map below) make sure you are 90km from wells relay
    take 1st screenshot showing the clock.
    then depending on the class you want to race in:-

    take 2nd screenshot showing you are 80km from Wells Relay with clock

    County line -Drive 30km (15 mins)

    Submit your screenshots for a time on the boards to :-

    the top 3 times will need to be varified with a video capture submission.
    so if you want to enter a competitive time.. maybe best to vid cap your run.. but you can hold off on uploading.

    There will be 3 leaderboards, one for each class.
    The top 3 times in each class will receive a real life tiny prize. though Alec and Furry have these already.
    I would also like a beauty shot of you in your buggy if you place top 3 for the final podium post. cheers.

    Horizons, An SRV (buggy) ,video capture software for competative entrants

    no, sry.. the BRC is the buckyball racing club, we do rally style races in ships normally. but this is the 2nd buggy ball race.

    -I don't have screen capture software, can i enter?
    sure you can just enter for fun, but competative times will need to be verified by uploading a video somewhere.
    try OBS (https://obsproject.com) which is open source and should do a basic job for evidence purposes.

    Just emailed my first attempts at Jailbreak and County Line. This is indeed gonna be a hoot.

    n.b. had a slight problem with my County Line submission as I was going sideways when I crossed the 60.0 km line so couldn't get Wells target (with distance) and the HUD clock into the same screenshot. So sent two. Also curious, should it come down to seconds, where you're going to count the exact start time from? The point where the wheels start spinning, or when we pass through the inner courtyard entrance?

    A bit of rephrasing: I think I may have worked to get several cuts (and bruises) flying (in a buggy) this time out. Ouch.

    Turns out that in my yesterday evening, first 2.1 wanderings, fate brought me less than 50 ly from Ao Kang. Nice! Submission incoming.

    And since when small boulders have become unmovable forces of nature? Ground speeding just become trickier!

    So so true. Time was that the challenge to fast buggying was the mounds, and hopping across them. Now the mounds are (relatively) easy and what gets you are the immovable stones on the flats that rip 50% off your hull and/or bring you to a very ubrupt stop. Well, that and the low gravity that (presumably) is the cause of all the slewing around like a pedal-to-the-metal AC Cobra trying to accelerate away from an oil slick (I might try to record a run with my mic' on - "no, No, NOOOO. God. damn. you! ... drive frickin' straight!! ... not left ... NOT RIGHT ... go STRAIGHT ... you. utter. B@st@rd!!!". I fully expect to have literally wrenched my joystick out of its socket before this race is over.
