    EXTREME LANGUAGE WARNING

    One more fun night before the normal season gets underway, in the form of an 80's team fun night!

    Cars required will be stock at 100% power and weight

    Teams of 2 will compete in 5 different events on the night:

    Relay Racing - 1 member from each team will 'go' off the line and the other member will line up on the start/finish straight. To end their lap, the first member must 'hit' the rear of the second member (who is on the start line) which is the 'passing of the baton'. Member 2 completes their lap and hits member number 1 on the start line to pass the baton again. Each member will pass the baton twice, with the first member completing the total 3 laps to finish the race.
    Nissan Fairlady Z 300ZX Twin Turbo 2 Seater 1989 - RS - Fuji - 3 Laps

    Reverse/Foward Racing - Off the line, all drivers need to perform a 180 spin and complete a lap going the wrong way. They should enter the pits from the wrong way so that their car is reset facing the correct way, then continue on the correct way as normal.
    Lamborghini COUNTACH 25TH ANNIVERSARY 1988 - RS - Catalunya - 1 Lap
    TIP: when you enter the pits from the wrong way, autodrive takes over and tries to turn your car around and head back out of the pit lane in the correct direction, so going full throttle into the pits may not be the best tactic...


    Bump Draft Racing - The first Team (pairing of 2 drivers) to finish the race, wins. Basically, the finishing time of the slowest driver in your team is your teams actual finish time (hence bump drafting).
    Volkswagen GOLF I GTI 1983 - SS - Bluemoon Bay Speedway - 5 Laps

    Bludger Bombing - 1 member of each team races clean as normal. The other member performs a 180 at the start and goes backwards to attempt to hinder other teams through dirty tactics
    Toyota SUPRA 3.0GT TURBO A 1988 - RH - Dragon Trail Seaside - 3 Laps

    Dirty Racing - This will run with no damage, corner cutting allowed (boost on and track edge grip reduction on low)
    (This will be run in free practice to allow more corners to be cut so final positions will need to be honestly based please!)
    Porsche 911 TURBO 1981 - RS - Spa - 5 Laps



    Teams are named after songs from the 80's and the cars must be primarily painted in the same colour
    (but good looking liveries are encouraged):
    Electric Blue 1987 - @xlxy90 & @CaptainRisky21
    Black Velvet 1989 - @JonoStan96 & @Ozglenn
    Red Red Wine 1983 - @emmo46 & @SPye2_WAU
    Purple Rain 1984 - @LE_bananajosh & @Aza2672
    Orange Crush 1988 - @THE_UNDER_STUDY & @Hatfield
    Pink Houses 1983 - @UrsineSaturn9 & @incey
    White Wedding 1982 - @Mightymurph51 & @Cameron Neane
    Touch of Gray 1987 - @Xtr3meNZer & @Tony4Fingerz
    (If you can find a different 80's song with a colour in the title, let me know and we can change the team name)

    So get your name down with someone to make a team, and start working on tactics! (I will fill the final spot to keep teams even)

    Reserves


    Points will be much closer than Sunday League to greater reflect the 'team' aspect and I will try to update team points live on the night. (For events where only one score is recorded for each team, points are doubled)
    1st=16pts
    2nd=15pts
    3=14
    4=13
    5=12
    6=11
    7=10
    8=9
    9=8
    10=7
    11=6
    12=5
    13=4
    14=3
    15=2
    16=1

    Top idea, but obviously "Back in Black" was accidentally overlooked. ;)

    If you want in, you can change the song of the team you are in if it suits

    I'm out unfortunately. Someone else can take my Pink mantle. (That sounds wrong).
    My Sunday night racing is over for now. Finished with a bang though. Thanks for organising these @Hatfield. Had a blast.
    Good luck all. #notahatchback. #Dort
