Since I agreed to host the 'Return of the Gauntlet' event (at least according to Sev)
I thought Saturdays might be a good time spot for this.

23.00 h should be still not too bad as starting time for Germans or Frenchmen and
maybe not too early for the members of the EST tribe and for Brits it should even be in a
quite sweet spot at 22.00 h.


Since there are still 4 hours between the start of this event and the start of Fighter Madness
I will try to make a real job of the Revivals and revive the Cave Fights as well.
The starting time for the Cave Fights will be 7 pm EST, that should leave enough time to do
each event properly.

This is a race event to be held every Saturday at 2pm EST, directly prior the Guns only event.
It's Back so come along and have some fun all who came last time had a ball.

Prizes
Everyone receives 100 million for participating.

That is not a type O making this the richest event on the UV at present. Come along for some fun and your chance to get yourself 1,000,000,000 credits.

RULES

This is a 3 lap race.
You can choose any ship to fly.
Players may shoot and kill each other at any point in the race.
Each Player must first dock at the Start line before race and must not dock anywhere until the final lap.
When you have finished the race you must sit near finish line or remain docked and not engage anyone.
Each player must dock at the finish line at the end of the race.
Each players lap count will be verified by a race official who will be at the finish line.
Racers should try and stick to the trade lanes where possible.
In the event two players tie for the yellow jersey (most kills) they will have a fight at finish line to determine winner.

Unfortunately I overlooked that the function keys on the Bluetooth TV keyboard on the machine I used

have to be activated by pressing a further key which is named FN. While I switched unintentionally to the
desktop Image Sev got out of my reach. Since I am not the best at Speeddocking anyways I reconsidered my

options and thought I would go for the Yellow Jersey instead. Unfortunately I am not very good at stopping

other players as well. I was able to switch of the lane when Sev approached me according to my scanner
but he easily flew a circle around my position and went for the Finish. Image
