YSFS AIR-20

Celebrating 20 Years of the YSFlight Simulator

Come join us for an exciting afternoon of high-octane racing around Oahu. Races start at 2100 UTC on Sunday July 14th. Buzz the famous Waikiki Beach and the Honolulu Harbor on the technical White Course, or push the throttle into afterburner for the All-Out Red Course around the eastern part of Oahu.

Scoring
This event will be scored using the YSCAS air race series method. The overall score of a racer is calculated by taking the sum of their total score and dividing that by the maximum number of points they could have gotten by finishing first in each of their races. That value is multiplied by 100. Competitors must participate in more than 50 percent of the races to count for the overall score of the day.
  • First place gets the total # of race participants (N) as their score.
  • For all finishers, they will receive one less point than the person ahead of them. (2nd would get N-1, 3rd would get N-2, etc)
  • All players that didn't finish (i.e. started but crashed, died or otherwise could not complete the course) get 0.5 points.
  • Shooting down another participant is negative # of racers
  • A shot down aircraft (not ground fire) gets last finisher score - 2 points as a consolation.

Thanks to Indy for hosting the Races!
tropicthunder.ddns.net

Current plan is to do 3 races on the White course and 3 races on the Red Course. In the event of a tie, a 7th race will be held on the White Course. Each course will take about 10-15 minutes to run. All players should use the same starting fuel to keep a level playing field.

Aircraft:
White Course - YSCAS P-51s at 100% fuel
Red Course - GAC USN F-14D at 100% fuel

Tentative Schedule:
Race 1: White - 2110 UTC
Race 2: White - 2125 UTC
Race 3: White - 2140 UTC

Race 4: Red - 2155 UTC
Race 5: Red - 2210 UTC
Race 6: Red - 2225 UTC

Race 7: White - 2240 UTC (If Needed)

That's a lot of races. 8-)

I just did a practice run on red with the P-51 and it took nearly 17 minutes, so an F-14 should do it in less than 8, I would think, probably 6-7.

Now I need to do a practice run on white with the f-14, because it's backwards from correct. :lol:

The Red Course in the F-14 uses nearly all of its fuel. :D

Are we allowed to join one of the later races if we can't make it from the first one?

Absolutely! The scoring is designed so that you don't have to race in all the races, only 3 to have your score count to the overall results.
