It's about time to pack up your bags and head up north, our friendly businessman and "provider" Martin Madrazo has gladly offered to host the second installment of The American Beauty. Madrazo was able to pull some strings to rent out Revirado Raceway, a winding spaghetti of asphalt draped over the beautiful mountains just north of Los Santos. We will be driving the ludicrously beautiful Banshee 900R, a purebred American race-spec vehicle capable of utterly dropping your defined, double-chinned jaw.
Although Madrazo is quite rich, he did have a limited budget to spend on this event. Unfortunately for us, that means that he will not be providing vehicles for this event because he spent all the money on booze for the afterparty. HOWEVER, he was gracious enough to arrange a number of sponsors that will provide vehicles. This means that all vehicles entered in the race will be sporting liveries. The companies have agreed to not impose any rules on paint jobs as to minimally obstruct the "Beauty Pageant" portion of the event. You are allowed to customize your vehicle in any way you see fit so long as it is wearing a manufacturer's livery and has tires fit for road racing.
Please include a two digit number you would like assigned to you for identification when you sign up. What, you think Madrazo cares enough to remember your actual name?
Come on down to Madrazo's Estate at La Fuente Blanca 30 minutes before the event starts (7:30pm UTC) to get your car inspected before the event and to enjoy the other cars being submitted in the event! Take notes on which design is your favorite, because after the race is done and positions are settled, Ragga Rum will be breaking out the beverages and the afterparty festivities will begin! The highlight of the afterparty will be a beauty contest featuring every car on the grid. Voting will be held on the forums with a winner being announced after two days of the polls being open.
The Beauty Pageant is a separately scored activity from the main race, but is still part of the overall event. Therefore, it must be treated as such. Madrazo didn't hire the "adult entertainers" to come pose on common looking vehicles, all entries must be aesthetically pleasing. The in-house photographers will be taking pictures so you will not have to worry about photographing your own vehicle for judging purposes.

The organizers of this event have decided to implement a mandatory 2 pit stops each driver must take throughout the race.
- Both of these pit stops will be drive through, no respawning required.
- There will be no pit stops allowed in the first 5 laps. On lap 6, you may begin taking your required pit stops.
- There is a mandatory 5 laps between pits, meaning if for instance you pit on lap 35, your pits will reopen on lap 40.
- There will be no pitting on the last lap.
- Each driver must call out his pits either vocally over voice (i.e. “Steve pit 1”) or through ingame chat by typing the pit stop number you are completing so that the chat appears accordingly; “SteveJEVVBZ: 1”.
If a driver neglects his pit requirements he will be rewarded with a 30 second penalty added to his total race time for each pit missed (2 in total). Positions will be adjusted accordingly.
