The Cortes Base drag strip challenge: another standing SRV time trial from the Buckyball Racing Club

Quick scoreboard update for Shaye who's knocked 3 further seconds off his time to solidify that pole position with a time of 4 minutes 13 seconds.



Nice!
 


So Mr Blackwood ... are you gonna post the video of how you managed to do such a fast turn around at the 10k line or shall I?

Un-be-frickin-lievable! :LOL:

I was gonna say I'd love to see the 4 minute barrier go but I don't really see how that 4:06 is possible to beat! (famous last words)
 
Good work AkenBosch (y)

( Except, you're too close to 05:00 to not go under surely ;) Go on! I mean, that's what I'll be doing as soon as I've stopped falling off the Pomeche ridge )

Edit: and PS, if anyone's keen for the ridge the sun rose a few hours ago, should be a couple of days of daylight now.

Cmdr Aken B. is back on the track and, with his traditional battle cry of "AAAAAAaaaaaAAAAAaaAaAAAAAaahhhhrgh!", he leapfrogs Sgurr by just 2 seconds to take 4th place.
Yes, yes I, ah, the traditional battle cry, that's just my, yes as you said, I....uhm, yes it's my battlecry, that's my battlecry, indeed...

It would have been under that already, if only I could aim for one of those ramps and not for the main city walls...but all things considered, that time was already an outlier, can't shake myself off the 5:20 ballpark otherwise. Don't know why, I feel like something's changed from the past, there's something preventing me from gaining speed as I'd like (as I usually did), it's almost as if the SRV didn't pitch fast enough, or the boost reserve was less lasting than before, but it really must be just old me....
