"Between 10AM and 7PM BST on the Elite Dangerous stations, you can take part in the official #FX2017 Buckyball Race – race across the galaxy along a pre-determined route! Our Ambassadors will monitor your progress and time, and the Ultimate FX2017 Buckyball Champion will be able to name their own star system in the game."
Not sure if there's going to be an official FD thread about this but in the meantime, since I've been organising this event, I thought I'd create a thread to answer any questions I can and also to provide some racing tips and tricks and to host some general race banter.
I won't post exact details of the race (unless FD say I can do so) so that everyone will have an equal chance when they turn up on Saturday (i.e. no practicing!).
That said, if anyone does want to get some race practice in, then the Buckyball Racing Club's latest in-game event, entitled "Fat Tony's Festival of Racing", is on now and will run until 15th October 3303. Click my forum signature for details.
Looking forward to meeting y'all on Saturday.
Fly Fast commanders.
