Update


After a long day of racing, the Limited Edition race is officially in the books. I want to thank everyone that participated in this race. It was a successful event with a lot of great racing. Now let's get on to the details of the event.

The goal was to start racing at 1pm, but we ran into issues with HSSRMS. After a lot of testing, we were unable to get it to work properly. So we ended up using SmartRace. The problem was that it put us behind trying get HSSRMS to work properly, and then on top of that one of the guys that was suppose to shown up and race with us was a no show. We hung around for a bit to wait and see if we could get a fifth driver. It ended up being just four of us driving, Andrew (Drewbert34), Cas, Joey and myself. Long story short, we ended up starting the race around 2:30 (way too late :? )

Since there were only 9 cars signed up, we added in three cars of our own that were built according to the rules so that the number of cars was divisible by the number of drivers. They were essentially ghost cars and of course not eligible for the prize. This was done so that four races wouldn't have to be just one car, as that would not have been fair to the other cars and no fun for us.

Here is the format that we ended up using.

12 Cars / 4 Drivers
- The 12 cars were randomly split into groups of 4
- Each group of cars then had 4 heats
- Each car would be driven by each driver once
- Each car would start from each starting grid position (1-4)
- After the 12 heats, the top 8 cars with the most laps advanced to the next round
- The process was then repeated for the remaining 8 cars
- After the next 8 heats, the top 4 cars with the most laps advanced to the final round
- The final round with 4 cars was then repeated with each driver driving each car once and the cars rotating grid positions
- All the heat races were 30 laps with no fuel simulation or pit stops

Results

After the round of 12, these 8 advanced

Lois
Charley
Dylan (DC)
Steven R
Buspor63
Czar
Sandy Kerr
SlotCarSpaceSolutions sponsor car

After the round of 8, these 4 advanced

Czar
Charley
Steven R
Sandy Kerr

The final 4 was absolutely a dog fight. It was such a close finish! 1st and 2nd both finished on the same lap, and then 3rd and 4th also finished on the same lap. The tiebreaker throughout the proxy was where the cars was on the track at the end of the race, as the we had the power cut as soon as the leader finished the race with 30 laps. 3rd and 4th were separated by about half a lap, and 1st and 2nd were only separated by about 10 ft. I proudly present the top 4 finishers,

1. Czar
2. Sandy Kerr
3. Steven R
4. Charley


A huge congrats to Czar for taking home the victory of the first proxy race here at Snyderville Speedway and taking home the prize! :auto-checkeredflag:

What a day of racing it was. As I mentioned earlier, we didn't get started racing until 2:30, and we didn't finish until 10:30 last night. It was a lot of work, and at the end of the day everyone was exhausted. However, we got it done and had a great time in the process.

As for the video, I will be editing and posting the full videos from the final 4 heats that decided the top 4, but due to some camera and SD card complications, I will only be able to do a highlight type video for the first 20 races.

Again, I want to thank everyone that participated in this race. It was a great time, and I look forward to doing it again in the future. I will be getting return shipping prices for everyone in the next couple days. I will also update the OP with this info.

I will commit to the race. Do we have to declare what model we want to run, since you said no duplicates? If so (and if it is not too early) I would like to enter the M-B #10 Stihl car (orange and white).

Yes, this is a proxy race where people send in cars. Sorry if that wasn't clear in the OP. However, anyone that would like to come and participate in person is more than welcome.

Yes, everyone needs to declare which model they are running. If we get a lot of participants, I may have to allow duplicate models, but unless we get to that point where we are running out of models to choose from, there will be no duplicates. I will mark you down for the #10 Stihl car. Thanks!

Even though the window is fairly small, I think this thread should be moved to Proxy in a few days.
