SAR Karting

Post by S_Racer » Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:39 pm

Hi fellow racers,

I'm wondering if any of you guys would be interested in me holding a simple karting championship with my upcoming SAR_11 kart.

Races would be of about 5 laps each, with 2-3 races per event on a time of the week i haven't decided yet. Grid positions would be random, quali is too much to handle... remember i said "simple" above? Could be clean or dirty racing depending on the majority.

I also make my own tracks (original or real location) which are pretty cool to race on with the kart i will offer. Much of them have never been posted here so it would ensure that nobody got too much experience out of them and it would be cool to discover new tracks for you guys i think!

What about it ?

I'd be in but I think the events could be a bit longer. 3*5 laps, even allowing mid-event waiting time, is only about 15 minutes. 5*5 or something could be better me thinks or mebbe 3*10 in my opinion at least.

Thx for your interest guys !

Sorry i took time to reply to you but i was busy making some tracks and with the family and all...

I think Del is right suggesting we make the events last longer ! I think the 5 laps of 5 races per event seems the better compromise at the moment because 10 races per event would give me too much track-making do to !!! And i don't wanna give you guys crap to race on! :P

Here's a first release of the first events. Final details will come in about 2 weeks, including rules, calendar, points, etc...

Color codes :
Red : Track missing
Orange : Work In Progress
Blue : Track done but needs review or minor adjustments
Purple : Track done but needs total overhaul
Green : Done and ready to be raced on

Event #1 - Date/Time TBA

  • SA_RicardoTormo - Race track (Road Course) - Location : Valencia, Spain

Now only a few have been reviewed for competition use and the rest has to be either modified, re-built or made from scratch. Given it takes about a week to make a track from A to Z, it'll be one event every month or so...

What time (timezone) would fit you the best on weekend days?

You could obviously have 2-3 races on each track... And given that over 80% of the likely participants are European with the rest (other than you) from Brazil (unless you get more Canadians or something playing) the ideal starting time would be Sunday(?) 7-10 PM Englandland time.

No offense Whiplash, but your kart is way too slow... :P Model is quite nice and the car behaves nicely around the track though.

For this championship, I want to offer you guys a kart that will test your skills and reaction time.

The SAR-1 Kart has proven to be hard to master, but with hundreds of races on its counter (with my coworkers) it still has to get boring! It was designed the day i took a real world-class championship karting machine on the track.... and it behaves much as the real thing does, or at least as i could make it feel in TS. You risk to be surprised how fast it goes at first, but, like in real life, if you never stepped in a race car before you can't expect to push it through corners right away, it requires some getting-used-to! That is why i'll post THIS WEEKEND a testing track for you to practice the new SAR-1 Kart.

The kart will be like any real racing machine : brutally fast, split-second reactive (brake and turning), heart-pounding and exciting!!! 8)

SA_AbuDhabi_SAR-TestTrack

Post by S_Racer » Sun Apr 08, 2012 5:15 pm

Here is the test track (SA_AbuDhabi_SAR-TestTrack) :
http://turbosliders.com/view_track.php? ... offset=240

Look out for the cars download section to get the SAR-1 Kart. It is still pending review by the admin and should get available soon !

:!: NOTE : the track is ugly and glitchy at some places... It will be entirely remade for Event #5's SA_AbuDhabi_GP race. However, it corresponds to the average track width (60-90px) and surfaces we will be racing on.

Maybe the kart he drove in real life went 700 km/h, who knows. Not sure how anyone could survive those kinds of G-forces in the corners though. :D

interesting how i see all the vets feeling out of their element with this kart :P

I guess my goal is reached with you guys being not-too-happy but also not mad at me...

It is normal it throws you off your comfort zone gentlemen :twisted:

@Whiplash : the realism isn't between kart speed and track proportions ro lap times... It's the reaction time and the focus required by your brain and fingers to master a brutal machine ;)
