RACE QUALIFICATION

Two races of 20 players each will be broadcast on the second Thursday of each month.

Races will be divided into “Pro” (fastest) and “Amateur” (just for fun) racers.

How to qualify for the race:

– All racers must sign up at https://forms.gle/7oFPZJZapanNGwJH9 and be accepted to join the League before joining any race. You will be notified via email if you are accepted to join. CrowdStrike and AWS friends & family are invited to participate.

By the Tuesday before race day, please run at least 5 valid, timed laps on the server. Note that this does NOT include outlaps, inlaps, or laps with track cuts.

The server conditions and time of day are fixed to ensure a level playing field for all drivers.

Note that there’s a full hour on the session time, so simply running a single full session at some point should give us the data we need.

 

Scheduled Practice Times:

The server is open 24/7, but PROs and AMs will be able to have the track to themselves on the following days:

PROs only: Every Monday and Wednesday, 5-10pm PST. Please allow the fastest drivers to have this track time to themselves.

AMs only: Every Tuesday, 5-10pm PST (A Pro mentor may join from time to time to allow AMs to answer questions and get help during the practice times)

● If you’re not sure yet if you’re a PRO or an AM, start with the AM server time and see how you stack up against the other racers. If you’re significantly faster than others, try the PRO practice time on Wednesdays.

● “Office Hours” with our mentors will happen during this time.

 

HOW TO SHARE WITH FRIENDS & FAMILY
