Season schedule has been posted! Note that all races begin at 6pm server time (9pm Eastern) this season.
Race 1 is just a week away! Here's the skinny on it:
Location: Silvermoon City, Quel'Thalas
Par Lap Time: 1:10
First Introduced: Season 2
Weather: Warm & sunny.
Challenges: Crowded streets.
Season 2 Results
1st: The Wizard
The Silvermoon Circuit will capture the attention of all sorts of people! This should be a spectator-heavy race, so drivers will want to put on their best show. The Silvermoon Circuit will loop around through the Court of the Sun, the Royal Exchange, the Walk of Elders, and Murder Row. Meeting area will be the Lower Court of the Sun, near where the Forge is.
The sidewalks along the course roadways are off-limits to drivers and will provide excellent plays to watch the race and remain close to the action.
All drivers must remain on the white stone paved roadways, with exception to the red stone paved area around the start/finish line.
Also be sure to look over the rules and regulations here: http://gascar.shivtr.com/pages/rules
Here's a run-down of rules that are either new or have changed since last season. Several of them are just re-wordings for clarification. The italics are the changed sections.
See the full list of rules and regulations at http://gascar.shivtr.com/pages/rules
Added to the rules:
Not to mention, in many of the long cross-continent runs, participants from other servers may phase out in the middle of the race *heh*
Race day is my favorite day!
For those of you who have a slight interest in GASCAR, but haven't decided to make the jump yet, let me tell you, it's a ton of fun! This is the third season I've been a part of, and I mainly spectated the first two seasons!
It doesn't matter if you're a driver, racing coach, cheerleader or fan, GASCAR offers a great basis for some fun RP and competition. Hopefully we can get together before/after the races to get to know each other a little better this season!
See you out on the course!
Added a penalty, because the remount penalty seemed too harsh for some situations, such as going off the track for only a very short time.
Swerve penalty: The driver will be asked to swerve off the driving line and return to it, take a turn on the wide side, or a similar action which increases their completing time by a small amount. This is issued for minor infractions in which a re-mount is too severe.
Note that once the season begins, as in 2 hours from now, the rules are locked in as they are for the rest of the season unless deemed absolutely necessary for the functionality of the races themselves.
Results from today's GASCAR Race: Silvermoon Circuit. In 1st was Vauldren (17.5), 2nd Kaydin (11.5), and 3rd Tarlaynia (6.9). Top teams so far this season are Trapdoor Enterprise (25), Corvidae (6), and House Starfallen (4).
Next GASCAR race will be the Bogpaddle Relay on September 16th at 6pm server. Starting point the northern bridge in Deadwind Pass. See http://gascar.shivtr.com for more information.
Start: Deadwind Pass North Bridge, Azeroth
Relay Point: Blackrock Mountain Ramp, Azeroth
Par Section Time: 7:07
First Introduced: Season 3
Weather: Hot & humid, hot & dry.
Challenges: Path selection, swampland, dangerous cliffs.
The Bogpaddle Relay is the resurrection of an older, retired race named the Bogpaddle Run. It was retired because it was too short, but it makes for an excellent relay race. The starting line is at the northern bridge in Deadwind Pass, same as the Deadwind Circuit. Racers will then make their way east, into the Swamp of Sorrows, travel through Bogpaddle, make a sharp left west and then a right north onto a high mountain road in Redridge before coming down into the Burning Steppes where they will then find their way towards the bottom of the Blackrock Mountain ramp. From there, they turn back and make their way to the starting point, completing one relay.
The ramp at Blackrock Mountain will ensure to-the-second knowledge on the winners of the race. The town of Bogpaddle will also make an excellent viewing location, with plenty of drinks to go around.
Starting point is the eastern end of the northern bridge in Deadwind Pass.
Relay point is the bottom of the ramp leading to Blackrock Mountain.
Duskwood is off-limits.
All waterways must be crossed by bridge.

I just want to add how close of a race it was, and give a shoutout to Nezziana who came up with an incredibly smart route that took me a full lap and a quarter to regain my initial lead. It was literally a photo finish, and we battled it out head to head all the way through Dustwallow Marsh. Looking forward to another incredible race in Blackrock!
Qizik, hang in there! Just throw in a little more practice, plan your route carefully and you'll be up front with the rest of us! Love you!
To everybody who didn't come, join us next race! It really is fun, and we're planning a small get together before the next race, just to get to know each other. Come out! It's still not too late to win the season!
Also! I'm forming a team for the next race, if you want to get in on this elite racing group, send me a letter in game and we'll work it out! Expect in-character race practices and mentoring. Racing uniforms will be provided.
Speaking from my experience with GASCAR on other toons, there's been at least one time I remember when Alliance raced with us, I think they were even part of the competition... however we don't do that anymore because a lot of the time we go through Horde areas or past Horde-friendly NPC's, and it provides a really bad penalty for them.
You should come to the red-side though and race with us!

There was one race in season 1 where someone paid the entrance fee with a horde character and then tried to race with their alliance character with a transporter malfunction thing disguising them as a Tauren, I think. I allowed it, but it turned out to be a huge mistake because not all of the rules were communicated very well and he spent the whole race unknowingly cutting corners. Since then I don't think we've had any alliance even try to race along.
