Overview

I'm planning on making this into a Diecast Race Series on YouTube and a Paperback Book.  You could be one of the characters!

Note:  Working on IDRL 2.0, Cannonball Run, Multiple LeMans Events, YellowLine 1, and Formula Zero first.  Formula $pecial S3 may follow this event.

Back Story

The year is 2057, eight years after the collapse, and the North American Street Coalition was established. This coalition of racers was formed with a goal of racing the last of the gas guzzling muscle cars in a colossal race series. In an otherwise post-apocalyptic world, these beautifully finished street machines are a throw back to the old days, a beacon of hope and humanity. Although professionally organized, these gas guzzling machines, and in fact any personalized vehicle, have been outlawed. Oh, there are fans aplenty and crowds of spectators who gather around these events but equally so, there are the masses of impoverished people who protest these events and do anything that they can do to prevent them from happening. Drivers and their teams must sign waivers for any liabilities, their car, and even their own life, for driver safety relies not only on roll cages, fire suppression systems, and impact foam but also in keeping a personal firearm handy. Some of the proceeds go toward The Helping Hand, Water 4 Everyone, and Responsible Racing, our giveback to society if you will.

In the year 1934, the car of the future was the Chrysler Airflow. One hundred years later would prove to be a pivotal turning point for the auto industry, albeit a short lived one. The promises of infinite electricity with the advent of fusion power plants fell flat. The human race had over-extended itself on the dependencies for electric power, hardest hit was our over-indulgence of the motor vehicle.

With new advancements in traditional fuel and the gas-powered engines it was becoming the perfect combination for a hybrid powered supercar. First to rollout one such hybrid-powered monster was Dodge, with their 2035 D-Muscle, an all-American muscle pony built for serious asphalt burning. With a supercharged V-8 and plenty of air vents to let it breathe, this broad-shouldered showoff was eager to please. On its heals, the same year, was the Banshee IV by the General Motors Chevrolet division.

This started a long list of cars that would take advantage of this hybrid technology with the re-integration of the gas-powered engine. In the year 2048, Ford and Dodge produced some of the most advanced vehicles on the market with the Mustang Pony-Up and Plymouth Barracuda respectively. The Barracuda, also know as Fast Fish, was a re-imagined retro styled classic car, a trend of the times.

Mexican automobile manufacturer, Mastretta, produced the most advanced car to date with the 2049 Quick-Star. Unfortunately, not many of these cars were built before the great collapse of 2049. War broke out and devastated the planet, reigning in a new apocalyptic reality and the end to automotive manufacturing.

A newly post-apocalyptic organization, The North American Street Coalition, was formed and organized their first race event in the current year, 2057. A race requires race cars. Organizers and participants alike, roamed the countryside in search of cars that could be salvaged. The Dodge D-Muscle was now 22 years old and the newer Barracuda 9 years old. Even if found whole, they required significant restoration. Cars that could be revitalized were generally found in museums, storage facilities and garages well outside any of the major cities.

The lead up to 2057 saw the salvage of hundreds of cars as well as a few creative Resto-Mods, restored modern day cars with a replica carbon fiber shell of a vintage car. These vintage cars were salvaged and 3D scanned for the molds. Examples of these cars are the Vairy Eight, a 1969 Chevy Corvair body on an Impalinator, and the 240 El-z, a 1978 Datsan 240z body on an El Segundo.
Races take place on the open roads. Officials scope out the route in advance, marking it, setting up signs and barriers and making sure it is going to be as safe as possible for the drivers. Entire sections of road may be paved or re-paved as needed to ensure that the cars can achieve top speeds and put on a spectacular show.

Prior to the race, In the drivers meeting, everyone shakes hands and makes a pledge of good sportsmanship and a clean race. But in every driver’s mind is victory and victory is everything. Grudges, jealousy, and overall bad chemistry can cloud the driver’s mind and in a split second of bad thought, force another driver off the road or worse. Then there is no more time to think, it’s a hurried start as cars and drivers scramble into their starting positions, eager to get in motion before the crowd gets out of control and shots are fired. There is always chaos and confusion at the start, people get killed and the drivers just hope to get out alive. Once on the move the chances of a stray shot taking out a driver is much less likely. Disabling the car is always a risk however. Once prone on the road anything can happen.

There are multiple race events planned even if their locations are not known yet. The winner of each event is showered in prizes. First of all, the driver is presented with a wreath of exotic flowers and an intricate trophy forged from durosteel itself along with 1.5 million in cold hard credits to be split 2/3rds to the driver and 1/3rd to their charity of choice. Each race the prize money is increased by 300,000 credits. The driver and their team also receive lavish meals at the most up-scale locations and get to take in the most prestigious entertainment for an entire week. The last place car on the other hand is eliminated from the race series. Anyone who crashes is fined 25,000 credits for clean-up, and an additional 35,000 credits if they need medical attention.  Collect over 10 million in race winnings and you will also receive the exquisite, rolling work of art, the HFS Mogan Screamliner.  Imagine pulling up in this classic at your next race event!

Don’t let the traffic bots worry you though. Ever since the collapse they have been confused and lack the connectivity to the master database at any rate, or probably the master database does not even exist anymore. So even if you are fined it does not actually get logged anywhere. Since the road system is no longer maintained these “police” bots can detect moving violations for the strangest of things. Scattered stop signs and road signs in general and strange markings on the road surface can all lead to some form of driving violation, or like a 50 MPH unless otherwise posted, with no posted speed limits, the limit is 50 and these cars are doing a lot more than 50 MPH. But if you do want to avoid a confrontation, show the bot your had with your fingers split in the “live long and prosper” gesture like Spock used in Star Trek. It is some kind of back door to the program where the bot will simply move along.

Dates & Deadlines

Don't sign up yet, don't build a car, don't send me a car.  I will update when I'm ready to run it.  Have other events to finish first.  I want to get the ideas down so that I can finalized it.  But you can start thinking about which car you want to run.  If you have comments or questions you can contact the host or reach out to Marcus Firegone: DiecastRacing.ca on Facebook.

How to enter

There will be no entry fee and currently there is no plan to return cars.

Track

Racing will be on the Snow Valley East - Open Road Edition. View track profile and specs

Race format and scoring

There will be multiple race events.  Race format is not decided yet but probably multiple laps with 6 cars run at a time.  Likely the GRID-6 format, limited to multiple 6 cars race events, or 12 car race events, or 18 car race events.  Undecided and may vary.  Plan to run multiple events on the same track.  I'm also building a second track.  Could also include collaborations.  If you have a track and would like to participate in this event, please contact the host.

"The winner of each event is showered in prizes.

As cars get eliminated there will be room for new drivers/cars to join in.  Total winnings including charities will be tracked.  Be the first to acheive over 10 million in prize credits!

The Cars

Multiples of the same casting in this event are welcome.  I expect multiples of some of these cars, but there is enough choice that it could end up being all unique.  The cars labeled as RARE, however, are limited to only one person/entry, no duplicates.

Scoring

Teams have 1,000,000 credits to start.

The "value" of the car chosen is deducted from the starting credits.

Each race, if you crash you must pay a 25,000 penalty plus repair your car:  10% of car "value" if crash on wheels.  30% of the car "value" if crash on roof or side.  If you crash on roof or side, you also must also pay 35,000 for medical fees.

Winning a race pays 1.5 million, but 500,000 is given to a chairity of your choice.  This amount goes up by 300,000 each race.

2nd: 500,000, 3rd: 250,000, 4th: 125,000, 5th: 75,000
