Sponsored by Winthorpe Motors

The Event:

beamMP, Automation Test Track


you'll find out a few hours before the race(it's not any time-trial btw)


Saturday 24th at 19:00 UTC


  • just dm me on discord and make sure beamMP is working for you
  • on the same DM, finish this sentence:

“Winthorpe Motors designs are…”

How we go about this:

  • One day before the race the one-liners will be published and will be voted for by the participants.(this will decide the starting grid and car choosing order)
  • On the day of the race(just before it, when everyone has joined the server), the cars and route will be announced. A beamMP server will be up(Winthorpe Motors Test Facilities) and a google folder will have all the cars that you SHOULD download before joining the server.
  • Come race day the starting grid/choosing order is revealed for the first leg and depending on the number of participants there will be 1 or 2 of the same car available per race leg.
  • For the 2nd leg, the winner gets bumped 3 positions down on the choosing order, the runner-up 2 positions and the 3rd only 1 position.

The Cars:

  • all cars will be provided by Winthorpe Motors
  • around 5 different cars will be available to choose from.

The Race:

  • Two legs(two routes) where you can choose a car for each leg(it can be the same car on both legs)
  • Each leg will take around 3.5 to 4 minutes

What You Need:

  • BeamMP client:
  • Access to this folder to download the cars when they’re made available and copy them to the resources/client folder of your beamMP
  • Find me on the Automation Beam Championship Discord so you can interact with the other participants and get more info about this race. Also it’s there that you should DM me (pcmoreno)
