[AMS] Special Event 66 - Ultimate Truck Showdown 2

Postby shaxberd » 10 Sep 2018, 20:57

Welcome to the 2nd annual (or will it be?) Ultimate Truck Showdown event - time for Round 2!


The event will be held on Sunday, 30th September 2018, with the following format and session start times:
Practice - 30 minutes beginning at 19:00 BST.
Qualifying - 10 minutes beginning at 19:30 BST.
Warmup - 5 minutes beginning at 19:40 BST.
Race 1 - 20 minutes beginning at 19:45 BST with a rolling start
Race 2 - 20 minutes beginning at 20:10 BST with a rolling start and a fully reversed grid (finishing/classified only)
Bonus* - 1 lap beginning at 20:40 BST with a standing start and a fully reversed grid from R2 (finishing/classified only)

*see below

The Track

As you would imagine, we're doing this properly - as with real events of this.. magnitude, we're going for a track that's completely unsuited for truck racing in most people's opinion: Welcome to Brands Hatch Indy!
Image

The Cars

All machinery from the Formula Truck DLC/AMS Season Pass content is eligible for this event, which makes 6 choices and then some, considering there are various configurations available for some of the trucks - go wild!

The Liveries

Liveries are optional for this - feel free to run a stock livery, but you're welcome to paint your one, as well. The livery deadline's Thursday, 27th September

Templates are available here:

No mandatory elements to the liveries, just keep your sponsors within the usual guidelines.

But wait, there's more!


After the "Trucker's Trophy" main event has finished, there will be another race with the tremendous length of one lap offering up a separate title! It won't be around Brands Indy though, instead, we'll teleport over to this place to find out who's our "Endurance Emperor":

A gentle reminder

As this club struggled to find a middle ground between full-on serious racing and Crashmas in the past, please keep in mind that this event, no matter how silly truck racing in both real life and virtual racing is, is meant to feature actual races, so our usual racing etiquette applies throughout the event.

In. Obviously.

I like how we're going to Brands Hatch, which was the original location for the original Truck Showdown but the trucks were too tall for the garages and physics were broken.

While I figured out my money situation and could theoretically afford the paid content now, there was another family celebration arranged in the meantime (no, it’s not a wedding this time), so I’ll miss the event anyway :<

Race Winner Anderson returns.

Quali was average, R1 I couldn't overtake many people cause trucks are wide. R2 I ran away from pole and held it under increasing pressure from @shaxberd, but clinched it in the end.

Well done @sin_racing on R1 win and (probably) the event overall, and @lazaros18 for the Endurance Emperor title. :D

That was fun, intense semi-battles/playing catchup with @Mosaegir in R1 and @Kosumo in R2, good stuff! Congrats @sin_racing & @lazaros18!

Good fun. Sure, I was completely hopeless at driving those lumps but the racing I had before inevitably binning it was close and fun.
