Although it would've been beat if I thought this through and did some research, I know I'll forget.


As the title indicates, the intent is to race cars from Bond movies.

Whether it be teams (good guys vs bad) or everybody can drive the Bond car is up in the air.

I would like to keep the cars in each race to each movie if at all possible. Restrictions to be determined.

As an example, the first race
would fall under Goldfinger. Quick check of the wiki shows the Country Squire was in it. So, at least in the race you would have the DB5 and the country squire.

I'm leaning towards a team type race as we haven't (or at least I haven't) done one.

Interest?

I think this would make a GREAT monthly series race Marm... Each week feature a different Bond match-up...

We have the Aston Martins, Lotus and BMW's used by Bond... We just need to determine the matching villain cars... And the Country Squire is no slouch on the track! Wink

If this becomes a monthly series, I do have a few months. So I'm not in too much rush at this time.

If you'd like to, you're more than welcome to. I'll mostly be trying to pull the cars from Wiki.

One added bit of fun. The field will be full with AI cars in one class lower than what we decide to race as.

Gotta deal with traffic.

this might actually be a series where I don't mind the traffic. are we going to do a cat and mouse type of thing where we have to stop the other team from crossing the finish line first (only difference would be everybody is a mouse) while still trying to stop yourself from getting hit or are we going to go with normal racing? I think allowing people to spin out the other team would make it a little more interesting Very Happy

I was thinking about allowing that. And it'll be group scoring? Or it'll be a two part "race".

1 part is actual racing (we'll keep it relatively short).
2nd part (for team bonus points) is an actual chase (and this is where the Bond historians can chime in as to who chased who). Still a couple of months away, but plenty of time to figure things out.

I like the teams idea. this seems to be popular so we should get a lot of participants. it would be so fun to encourage contact because it gives it more of a movie-like feel
