Community Event / Creation Buckyball Racing Club presents: The A* Challenge

Run complete, with a passenger on board bound for Colonia, so no Neutron Boosting:

CMDR name: Edelgard von Rhein
Ship Type: Federal Dropship
Ship Name: Hippogriff
class: Unlimited with Guardian FSD booster.
race time: 24 hours 34 minutes 19 seconds

Sadly a graphical glitch that results in the skybox largely failing to render is spoiling my view (as you can see in the arrival image). I have almost four weeks to get my passenger back to Galileo, so I can take my time for the moment but with this glitch I don't think I'll want to stay out that long.
 
Are those records lists still updated in OP? Seems like they are not..
I was thinking of doing the A Challenge when i get back home from DW2.. :unsure:

Its been almost a year since the last update, you can contribute your time, though at this point I wouldnt get my hopes up for a leaderboard update

Yeah, sadly (for us) drakhyr moved to Australia and, despite popping into the Buckyball Discord a couple of times, seems to be taking a fairly extended break from all things Elite: Dangerous.

Would be awesome if someone could take this thing over and keep that OP updated.

I was thinking of doing the Sag A run but without active records list, dunno if i bother..
I'm going to be hosting a regular BRC event next month. So long as running that doesn't impact too much on some other commitments I've got, then I'd be happy to take over running the A* Challenge.

Although my personal involvement was back during the original BBRA* this event is far too important to me to allow to die off. As I don't really have enough spare time these days to plan a competitive run, I'd be more than willing to keep the event going for those who do. I think that I'll certainly have enough time to make monthly updates, and perhaps more often.

In the meantime, I'll try to get in touch with Drakhyr to at least let him know that I'm planning to take it over. :)
 
I've not heard from drakhyr, but I have managed to retype the leaderboards much faster than I expected. I think this was mostly because roughly half the entries are by Darplata94 and Crotalus. ;)

I'll have them correctly formatted and will add the new times that Darplata94 listed above tomorrow, so I'll hopefully post the updated tables here in the next couple of days.

I'll start an A* Challenge v2 thread as soon as I've got time (maybe straight away, maybe when I've got the thread ready for my imminent regular BRC race). Once the new thread is up, I'll be able to keep the OP updated.

I'm going to take the chance to reserve a few posts at the beginning of the new thread, to link to helpful guides and tools the A* challenge runners.

If anyone has anything particularly helpful to like to, or remembers very useful posts in this thread, please could you let me know. :)
