    Today's race took place on the shortest racetrack of the City, with its 1.09 miles length, and a global lap record under 50 seconds (00:49.48).
    Official description says this track "requires an almost even balance of statistics", so Honda NSX seemed to be a wise choice (however we have an Audi and a Ferrari on the 2nd and 3rd place).

    It was Lightor's (86) car of choice as well, winning this qualification only with 0.024 seconds over bear1lit (66).
    Yuno_Lift (80), CJBWRC (53), Phool (19), and Prezze (61) were also within 1 second with their best lap times, forming the current 6 racers of Class A.

    Class B is more diverse, especially with XGCaesar (78) - the young star of Newcomers Racing Series 2020 has more than 7 seconds slip on his best lap time.
    Maybe he's Class B because of many racers have missed the qualification Today. Maybe it's all part of his strategy.

    Speaking of Class C, DrVoid (68) and Matzkops (85) are the only two of the class, having qualification results. Charvel (99) was letting himself been hospitalized in Japan, and released from the Hospital less than 90 minutes before the race started... he got no chance.
    All the other missing racers have no excuse.

    There are prizes to win in Class C as well, and I don't want to drop $50 millions on people underqualifing by staying away. Show up next time, or you will be out of the series!

    Overall, that was a good race for a start, a little bit bumpy, but tomorrow it will be better!

    Stay Tuned, next event opens NOW!

    Nice write up, I didn't expect to get a good time nonetheless the best in qualifying. Excited for the second race!

    New race has all cars enabled. I imagine we are still expected to use stock, right?

    I have set it for "All Classes, Stock Only" - and both qualifying races accept all cars... strange.
    I don't know what is the problem.

    Side note:

    There is a strategy here some of you may be aware of.
    If you got relative high RS, and you choose the worst possible car for qualification, you will find yourself in Class C, then you easily dominate the Class and get the prize...

    I'm not sayin' it's cheating, but next time maybe I will weigh the prizes between the Classes to make higher Classes more rewarding.

    Any idea regarding this?

    I guess I am confused.  I thought the qualification stage was where we earned a spot in the main tournament.  If everyone gets in, why not just get straight into the real thing?

    One thing about this tournament is it rewards high variance cars while most tournaments punish them because the slow laps tend to hurt more than the fast laps help. So people choosing normally may hurt them. Also, people may be choosing based on how cars perform fully upgraded when this segment is stock and therefore perform differently.

    Qualification was meant to decide the groups you would end up in as I recalled.

    As for the cars to use, it's unknown territory for everyone with stock cars, I basicly picked my choice on the car I indeed would pick for class a upgraded. (I never considered picking a lower class car either, as stock races already take considerate amount of time, not going to pick a b or c class. Also I dislike the idea that I would pick a lower class voluntarily)

    It depends if multiple class A racers would decide to do this it wouldn't be the case to dominate.

    I however agree that at the current format, some might have done it.

    Idea's:
    - If you have alot of participants: you can exclude class A racers from joing a group c race
    => ask for that info at sign up.
    - With less participants:
    => in order to avoid domination of a class A racer who joins class c and then wins with upgraded class A cars. You can add a rule that in the lower classes only stock cars of the same class will be used in the tournament (a class racers can't use fully upgraded cars, some even have lower classes upgraded).
    - less optimal solution
    => keep the determination based on whichever car. This however excludes lower class racers, since they don't have a group for themselves

    For Class C I'd say you use the racing class of the "worst" racer and use stock cars perhaps. Like this lower class people have a competition still and class A racers would try and steer clear of that group. Just my 2 cents.

    Cool idea, not buying anymore cars and none of my cars are stock, but this should be fun for those that participate.

    Today's qualification run took place around the Docks - the longest of all Torn City raceways. Its 3.81 miles is put together mostly from straight lines and 90 degree turns. Acceleration and speed are both have great deal in lap times here.

    Lugburz (74) has promoted to Group A, where Lightor (86) dominated the Docks, just like he did the Commercial District yesterday. Final Group A has 7 members to fight with each others during Time Attack races to come.

    Group B is led by Wizardking5433 (15) with a Slip under 8 seconds. With Siredge (94) and Madbranch (91) they seem to be impossible to beat within the Group... but don't forget Mad_Ninja (51), who has a great run on Commerce - unfortunately he missed Today's qualification, so we'll never know...

    Group C is no more, since 4 of the applicants never showed up to qualify.


    Participants now have been qualified into 2 groups, based on their Best Lap overall slips.
    From now on, the real Time Attack Race begins!

    Everybody runs on the same race, but compete with others only WITHIN their Group.
    Both groups have their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places rewarded with the same prizes.


    Watch out, the first race is already open!
