Hey everyone, I’ve run a few competitions directly on Discord and want to open this one up to the forums (or at least make people aware) - I know not everyone likes to submit on discord, but that’s the way I like to do it!
Your car will be scored against Strop driving an accurate 1986 B2K Turbo Callaway Corvette Replica.
This is a Beam NG biased competition - where I will drive the cars on beam at length with some scoring from automation. your cars will be tested with a fanatec Clubsport wheels and pedals - with a minimum of 15 minutes driving time for each entry.
Entry Closing Date - End of July 15th - One submission only, no resubmissions - 1 submission per person.
