MAY 12 FORMAT/INFO
PLEASE NOTE: Tonight's event is much earlier/East Coast friendly than last Thursday's event, starting at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT.
This Tuesday's races (May 12) includes a second Silly Hats Only No Pedal/No Wheel Lemons iRacing League Invitational (SHONPNWLILI) and a second stupid race. Unlike the last event, the No Pedal/No Wheel starts the evening off, so the session will open at 7 pm ET with just a 20-minute practice, followed by a 24-minute race again.
Tonight's Race will be on Thompson Speedway's 5/8-mile oval. It's just turning left, how hard could it be?
YOU WILL NEED TO DOWNLOAD THOMPSON SPEEDWAY IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE. It is a free track so you're only out the hard-drive space for it.
iRACING UPDATES: It's a day of the week that ends in "-day," so iRacing has updates to install. Do this earlier rather than later.
SILLY HAT PARTICIPANTS: If you were invited last week, you will be added to the grid this week. THE RACE WILL ONLY BE OPEN TO THOSE WHO CONTACTED ME IN ADVANCE (VirtuallySlow@24hoursoflemons.com). If your Silly Hats setup is the same as last week, you don't need to send me another email. If it's changed, let me know what you're doing differently. Photos or video are appreciated and will probably get used in the livestream. Like last week, it'll be open to the same six cars with no Black Flags and No Damage.
NON-SILLY HAT PARTICIPANTS: The race(s) following will feature 60 Pontiac Solstice's on Thompson's oval with a regular Incident Point/Black Flag threshold and damage on. The baseline setup is fixed so you all have to drive the same crap. No iRacing-thrown cautions because otherwise the race would never actually get started. The real winner is the person who finishes with the fewest incident points while completing most of the race distance (as determined subjectively, because this is Lemons).
