Hello Kart Racers!
Join us for the free to enter, SRW World Karting Championship events. 4 Challenge events will be spread across the month of September. The events will be broken down into 1 per week. Each week, the challenge event will allow players to compete in and you can score points in the championship by participating in each event.
Revised Points System:
The NASCAR style points system is perfectly suited for the event, but I did not feel that the number of participation was strong enough to warrant scoring so far down the field. On the flip side, I did not feel the traditional world karting points system was far enough down the field (only the top 15 score points). After much thought and discussion with SRW_Cossacco, we have agreed on a new points system that follows the Motorsports South America Karting points system. This rewards participants down to 32nd position so it is a good fit for this event at this time. NASCAR points system may return one day if more people join in.
1 Challenge Event Per Week:
In August, we had 3 challenge events per week which was possibly putting some people off or splitting their attention too much between the events. I have now opted for a more focussed 1 challenge per week arrangement but doubled the race distance so we shall really see some more enhanced consistency elements now.
LIVE Bonus Races:
You asked for it and we are delivering it! On Saturday the 14th and Saturday the 28th of September, SRW_Cossacco will be hosting an all new bonus round which features 5 live race Heats and 1 final live race event. Players enter the heat events and the top 3 finishers of each heat will qualify for the final live race. All players in the final live race will scoop some bonus championship points! (15 drivers in total).
At the end of September, we will add up the 3 best results out of the 4 weeks for each driver and add up the points, along with the bonus points from the heat events. The driver with the highest number of points wins the title of SRW World Karting Champion. I hope you enjoy these changes and look forward to crunching the numbers each week for you guys.
