Several arrivals today at RLD HQ...here are all the entries thus far. I'll do a last pickup on Saturday (maybe Monday too).
Team 164: Kyle's Pizza Planet, and Bruno's Ballistick
Worpex's Ferrari, and Sinister Grackle's Porsche
Mattman's Mustang and Big Poppy's Cougar
GR33K's Ford truck
North 271 Racing's Corvette
All of them look sharp and ready to race! Place your bets now. We'll see if any more arrive over the weekend and racing will get started next week. Don't forget this isn't a bracket tournament! We're doing round robin with points-per-win, so racing will probably take a week or two to get done.
Great looking bunch of entries for "Rookies"! Looks like you guys have caught on pretty quickly. Best of luck to you all!
Im going with the Ford pick up. They can tend to be quick but with FTEs I'm thinking quickER. The longer wheelbase doesn't hurt either.
I need to hunt me down that Porsche935...I missed them on the pegs (or they were sniped in the first place). Is that a mainline offering or one of the premium lines?
The Ford should do pretty well but I'll be interested to see how that Ballistick does. Also a long, wide wheelbase. Don't know if there are FTEs under those wheels but if so, that could be a dark horse of sorts.
Those are some sweet looking entries. Probably should run the Pizza Planet truck through a sobriety check point before sending it out on track.
I'm kinda thinking that Ford pickup is where it's at as well.
MattMan in the Mustang
I can't make a pick, I'm loving them all honestly. I want one of those Porsche bad. F150 got the best of me in the RLDRL race so obviously im eyeballing that one, the ballistic could be just that, I'm a sucker for a hot Testarosa and the vette looks sharp. Stock Cougar won my family Christmas bracket race and pizza planet has to make good time if he wants to deliver hot and fresh. Any one of em could be a monster, only one way to find out!
I'm waiting patiently to see how it goes down.
Quick update that I failed to make it to the post office on Saturday, so I'll make the last pick-up on Monday. I'll get all the entries together for a family photo Monday night and get the round robin schedule figured out. With any luck, racing will start on Tuesday night. I'm hoping to do a few rounds per night until we're all done. Since we're not doing a bracket, things might move faster, but I'm not sure my video production pace can keep up, might bleed into next week - we'll see what happens. I'm excited to see everyone roll.
We ended up with 8 competitors in this first Rookie Rally, so we'll have 7 rounds of racing with 4 match-ups each round. Everyone will race each other once.
See the full match-up schedule
I'm also going to call an audible rule change since we didn't get a full field. Instead of the one-and-done racing that was posted, we'll do the usual 2-in-a-row-to-win for each match-up. It'll get us some more racing to watch and give these cars some more track time.
There's also a good chance for some ties, but we'll figure out how to settle those once we see the final results. We might have to get creative...but until then, we're locked and loaded.
Racing will start this week. Good luck!
Points tie..Race Off...standard win 2 in a row...until one is left standing
I like the format with everyone racing everybody once. This is going to be a fun and interesting race.
The family photo before racing starts and rivalries are born. Good luck!
Here we go...Rounds 1 & 2 are up. Some close match-ups...and some not-so-close match-ups. There were a few standouts in these few couple rounds. Who will be able to keep the luck rolling into the next rounds?
There is no music or sound in this video. I messed up when editing and every piece of software I used was giving me trouble so heck with it. I'll get back on the next one.
Overall, the cars are running well...except whoever ordered that pizza from Pizza Planet gonna be waiting a while. Sorry, Kyle. Meanwhile, Big Poppy and Sinister Grackle had a nice battle to kick of Round 2, while three of the cars cruised to win both match-ups.
