Economy Challenge

Finished

OVERVIEW

In real life, racing teams constantly have to deal with the economics of racing. Everything costs $$ and so teams always have to find ways to keep costs at a minimum. It's the same for the organising bodies, who have to start limiting resources as they try to keep costs down whilst simultaneously making the racing greener and more environmentally friendly. Sim racers have never had to deal with this, until now...

In this event, every driver has been limited to just 2 tyre sets. Those 2 tyre sets have to cover the practice, the qualifying and the race. Not only that, drivers will have to fill their cars fuel tank to the brim, and fuel save to try and make the end of the race. The real question is, how many cars will actually make the chequered flag?!

There are only 4 splits available but with space for 50 cars in each split we could have up to 200 drivers racing in this event! However, you should act fast if you want to be one of them.

SIGN UP PROCESS

First-come-first-serve event. Register quickly to secure your space on the grid. Once the grid is full, you can register as a reserve driver and then take any available grid slots should a driver drop out or be absent.

WHAT SPLIT SHALL I CHOOSE?

The split and class you choose to race in is ultimately your decision, but we want to ensure that drivers are racing where they can be competitive and are of similar experience to those around them. A large gap in pace and experience can cause problems on track. We highly encourage drivers to choose their class and split carefully. Split 1 is generally home to the "aliens" and most experienced sim racers, those who are several seconds off "alien" pace or newer to ACC should start with the lower splits.
