YSAS Air Race - Sign Up!

Welcome to the YSAS Air Race.


In YSAS Air Race, competitors have to navigate a challenging obstacle course in the fastest time. Pilots fly individually against the clock and have to complete tight turns through a slalom course consisting of pylons, known as "Air Gates".
YSAS Air Race’s will take part alongside YSAS air shows. Every other YSAS air show will have a theme and the Sunday line up will include the YSAS Air Race. At every air show that the races take place points will be awarded, totalled up and at the end of the year the YSAS Air Race champion will be named. There are only 10 spots so hurry, but before you sign up you need to make sure that you can make the races and read the rules. Even if you don’t get in, apply anyway, because if a pilot miss more two races, their spot will be given to the next person in line, which could be you.

Aircraft:
Everyone taking part in the YSAS Air Race will get their own Extra 300, in your own colours and if you want sponsor (sponsor will be simple text on the side e.g. YSFHQ).

Rules:
1. Must follow the course, deviations will give you a 6 second penalty or disqualification (depending on how serious the deviation is).
2. 200 knot speed limit through the start gate, over speed will give you a 2 second penalty.
3. Hitting a gate will give you a 2 second penalty.
4. If you miss more two races, your spot in the championship will be given to the next person in line.
5. Air show dates will not be changed from the advertised date, if you are unable to make the race then you will score no points. Remember, miss two and you’re spot is given to someone else.

Points:
1st = 13 points
2nd = 11 points
3rd= 9 points
4th= 8 points
5th= 6 points
6th= 5 points
7th= 4 points
8th= 3 points
9th= 2 points
10th= 1 point

Races:
Other than the first round, the races will take place on the Sunday of a two day weekend air show. They will consist of three heats, in each heat people will be knocked out of this round and only the fastest go through. In round one the slowest six will get knocked out, round two will see the next slowest two pilots go leaving the final found to be battled out by the two fastest over all.
*Important notice: This section is not 100% and may change.

Want to host an YSAS Air Race?
If you want to host an official round of the YSAS Air Race then you can. YSAS Air Race’s are available to take part in non-YSAS online events. All you need to do if send me a PM with all the relevant information with at least one months notice and if YSAS board agree you will be hosting an OFFICIAL round of the YSAS Air Race. You can even design your own course for the event.

Next year?
If YSAS Air Race gets positive reviews and turn outs this year. Then we WILL do it again next year, only bigger and better. So if you don’t get in this year don’t worry, make sure you turn up to watch and enjoy the races and ensure it is here again next year. YSAS Air Race is part of YSAS plan to make YSAS online events more varied and exciting so that we can reach a larger audience with a wide range of events.

So, sign up and we’ll have a practice course ready for download in ASAP.

Vandal, YSAS Air Race director.

Should be noted was looking for YS related sponsor. So like VA, squad, pack, air show group etc. Remember you'll need their permission first.

VNAF will be happy to sponsor any racer in this event. We will only go up to two racers so that we don't monopolize but please PM me first before signing up if you want VNAF to sponsor you.

You don't have to have a sponsor to race, and you can change your sponsor after you post. So if you want to be sponsored by VNAF, and like he requested you contact him first, then sign up and leave the sponsor section blank until you have a reply from him.
PLEASE, if you change any information in your signup post then PM me with the changes. Again if you wish to pull out then PM me.
Remember, even when we have 10 racers, keep signing up people could pull out or lose their spot for not attending races.

Contingent on being able to show up:

Maroon and white plane sponsored by the 398th. Is it possible to sign up the 398th plane as a team, with our pilots being able to fill in for each other?

Chunt,

I am not going to speak for Vandal, however...

This is more a "competitor" thing rather than teams. It's about the person flying and who is then rewarded for getting in whichever place (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc). I honestly would keep it "person" wise. Other people can race too with similar sponsorships I would assume, however when you sign up, you are the one flying....and it is the possibility that you are the one that may win the championship.

Hope this makes sense.

Again, let's see what Vandal has to say about it first.

No teams, one sign up one pilot. No back up pilots, miss two races and you're out.

If a sponsor can sponsor more than one pilots. BUT, if they wish you to fly in their colours then you must have at least 1 different colour.
E.g. 2 of the 3 colours picked by the sponsor and the 3rd by the racer. So you can't copy colours, each plane will be different.

chunt75, I haven't put you're name in the pilots list, decide if you can make races and fill out the sign up form correctly, thank you. Scarecow said everything I would have.

It will be the GAC Extra 300 with Birdfarm mods. Using this one so that lag has NO effect on the lap times.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

First race will be during the Independance Day Air Expo on the 15/07/2011.
It does mean that you wont be able to display at the show, but this rule only applies to this air show.
