Welcome to CAG Gran Turismo 5 Race Nights!

I encourage everyone to join in regardless of skill.

Point rules:

The "official" races will be used to name a clear winner of GT5 Race Night. The winner gets to determine the following weeks official race themes and tracks (and hopefully more prizes down the road!).

The winner will be determine by whoever finishes with the lowest score. 1st place receives Zero points, 2nd place receives 2 points, Third receives 3 points and so on.

At the end of the five races the points will be added up, whoever has the lowest amount will be our winner.

I'd say aim for once a week, that way people who can't make it, say next week, still have a chance to have some fun with CAGs.

Is there a way to edit a poll?

Poll editing is apparently a nightmare. CheapyD has to do it I believe. I'm in, should be fun to race my lightweights.

For prizes, winner could receive an in-game car (or something else?)...this would be inexpensive and a nice little treat. Think pink slips...oh wait, that just gave me another idea :D

EDIT: Have we thought of what night(s) and time(s) would be best? I'm all for Saturday or Monday nights, but that's just me. I'd suggest not scheduling CAG nights on Wed. and Fridays though, so as not to compete with Black Ops.

I don't mind spawning off some Chrome Line or the Gamestop cars, provided I can do that on my game share account for the first few prizes, since you can't sell them they make perfect prize cars.

Updated players list.

CAG GT5 Race Night ideas:
-Winner over the course of 5 races will get to pick their theme of choice for the following week (or desired date) .
-Once the gifting cars starts working, expect the winner to get a cool car (and maybe losers get some crappy cars!).
-I do have some other ideas as prizes, waiting to get some swag in. Might get some people to take the race seriously.
-CAG race season. We could make it however long or short we want. Could opt for a good size prize for the winner.

Race themes:
-kart race (duh!)
-HP limits
-Race modded cars only
-Manufacture specific (like chevy's only)
-NASCAR!
-Team racing (2 people per team, score will be kept collectively. So do whatever it takes to win together!)
-NASCAR TEAM RACING!
-Over take challenges (one person gets in a fast car and needs overtake everyone within a lap)
-F1 (once we all get there lol)
-engine type only (FF, FR, MR)
-Rally
-Drag races?
-of course, Anything goes!

I know people got more. There is a ton of things we can do and winner gets to pick the theme!

Thinking of doing Monday nights. I can't change the poll, so if there is good amount that can commit (6-8) then we do the first race night next week Dec. 6.

For prizes, I think we should wait until they un-glitch starts, especially rolling starts. If I had a penny for every time cars did stupid crap before the race started, I'd be able to buy something off of the dollar menu.

What exactly is glitched about the starts? I didn't run into an issue with my minimal playing experience online.

Cars start out spinning out in rolling starts. I saw some cars starting sideways on a regular start, too.

I haven't ran into any problems with online, but no worries. The first race we have will be a trial and error no doubt.

GT Academy registration starts on the 6th, I'd say shoot for another day because online will be slammed that day. If only for the simple reason that registration may put them online, because that's what I'd do right after signing up.

No other game seems to have Tuesday night on lock. If a good amount can do this, then we will keep it.
