Community Event / Creation The Buckyball Racing Club presents: The Magic 8 Ball Championship

It's update time! The second race ("Aquarian Job") is now over and after a punishing week of driving SRVs and trying to dodge our ships around planetary obstructions, race organiser @Brother Sabathius has diligently sorted through the numerous submissions and posted the final results which you can find in the forum thread over here.

With points now awarded that also means we have our first reshuffle (and slight redesign) of the championship leaderboards.

For the regulation Cobra Mk III ship class ..

And for the unlimited ship class ..

While Sgurr and Shaye battle it out for the number one spot there's a lot of jostling for position just behind them and at this stage in the competition it's still far too early to predict who will be among the final winners.

The other big question - is the #OnePointClub now the #TwoPointClub or, by completing their second race, have some people now inadvertantly become uncool?

The next race (a more dangerous reboot of 3305's "Wiccan Ware Race") is due to take place between the 16th and 24th of April. More details as soon as we have them.

I heard leaving the #OnePointClub was uncool, so I'm going with the #TwoPointClub being uncool 😂
As the originator of the #onepointclub hashtag I think you'll find that I get to decide what's cool 😎

And it's now the #twopointclub... next month it'll be the #threepointclub if I can manage to submit otherwise it will remain the same. I'm giving big main character energy here with absolutely zero right to do so! 🤪
 
Race #3 ("The Wiccan BeWare Race") is over and, with over 100 submissions, it's been the most popular one yet I think (and let's not even mention the horrific number of ships that were destroyed in the process!) Sulu bravely solidered on despite that and the final results have been posted in the forum thread over here.

I've now run the numbers and the championship standings are as follows.

So Sgurr has taken the top spot from Shaye in the Regulation class and Captain-MD has kicked Bruski off the podium in Unlimited.

Oh, and a quick update on a change of rules re: points for the race hosts (designated with an H in the above scoreboards). After much discussion it's been decided that hosts kicking other racers out of the points by posting good times in their own races really doesn't sit well so instead, hosts will be awarded 1 point (but are still encouraged to post their own times at the end as it's interesting to know what sort of pace times they were coming up with).

The next race (psykit's reboot of 3304's "On The Rocks") is due to take place between the 7th and 15th of May.

See you there!
