Meet us on the track - Assetto Corsa race nights at The LANBox

Don your helmets, gloves and fire-retardant suits to join us for some regular racing events here at The LANBox. As part of our renewed focus on providing regular and dependable content we're bringing Assetto Corsa race nights into the mix. These nights will be held every few weeks on a Friday night as part of our Friday Night Games rotation.

In order to keep things accessible to all levels of skill and wallet fatness we'll only ever be using the core game content and using a handicap system to keep the field as tight as possible. We'll also be picking cars that are relatively easy to handle while still being fun. You aren't going to be expected to be a professional driver, just someone who's got a competitive spirit.

We'll be running a format that includes up-to one hour of practice, 30 minutes of qualifying and then a 20 lap race. Each of these will be separated by a 10 minute break.

The drivers in the top-half of the qualifying times will have a progressive handicap applied for each race. Depending on the number of participants how much, and how many, will vary. Ballast will be assigned based on your time behind the top qualifying driver using the following formula:

300 - 75 * ( your_time / top_time * 100 - 100 )

With the aim of regularity and consistency, the top four drivers in each race will be awarded points that will go towards winning a quarterly prize. Given we're nearly in March we'll extend the first quarter and have offer a $50 Steam voucher to the first place, $20 to second and third places at the end of June. We'll also raffle off the DLC of your choice at the end of each race. To qualify for the quarterly prizes you have to participate in more than one race and be a registered member of The LANBox. To qualify for the raffle you simply have to participate in a single race and be a registered member of The LANBox.

Point assignment by race position.

The first event will be held this coming Friday the 3rd of March. We'll be racing the familiar Toyota 86 around Magione with other tracks and car combinations coming to future events. Practice will open at 8PM and qualifying will kick off at about 9:15PM Adeliade time. Once the race starts the server will be closed so be sure to get on during practice or qualifying!

See you on the track!
