What: A test event for motorcycles with NODO. We have long avoided motorcycles in this crew, but the addition of the Hakuchou Drag and Stunt Race Physics may make for worthwhile motorcycle racing, as this bike does not have the issues with wheelies for speed, and handles racing near others better, especially when contact is made.
We will do two races, one in a Stunt Race, and one in a Land Race, to compare the physics differences between the two in motorcycle situations. In order to keep things simple, both tracks will be different versions of ZanCudochamps by ovivoJR
This event is also a promotion for endersai 's advanced event hosting guide that explains some of the finer details of hosting, along with providing a template for event hosts to start their threads with. You can see more about that here - nodo.freeforums.net/thread/10949/crowex-masters-series-event-template.
Whys: A few questions to answer. No, we aren't forcing 1st person view. It makes for bad racing with the very limited visibility. The tracks are well known and tested - this is a test event - if it goes well, tracks specifically for the bikes will be made, including a full TT style course of some kind. The Hakuchou drag's extra weight and lack of wheelies makes for the best option over the standard bikes in the game. It also has a decent amount of skill needed to go fast that a similar Shotaro does not have.

Time of day: R1: Current / R2: Noon
Weather: R1: Clear / R2: Current
* Mandatory pit stops (see below)
* At the beginning of the event, we will do 2 warmup laps before gridding
* Blue flags in effect
* All other NoDo racing rules apply
* You must cap your game at 60 FPS
Car Bike: Hakuchou Drag (Motorcycles)
Teams: This is a Crowex Masters, so teams from the pitlane will be used.
Players: Max 28.
Signups: You may signup with a teammate/team in mind, or as a free-lancer.
Grids: The grid will be randomized for Race 1, and the grid for Race 2 will be the reverse of the Race 1 grid.
Pits: You must make 2 pitstops per race. You will come to a full stop just in front of the wrenches, and when the pitwatcher shoots your motorcycle after 10 Seconds of being still, you may drive through the wrenches and complete the pitstop.
