GU Downhill - Season #1 2017



[GU] Events Presents...
Our first official event within Live For Speed S2!
Date: Sat Mar 25th - 6:00PM GMT - 1:00PM USA (Approx) - 7-8PM Europe (Approx)



Overview

A downhill duel competition using TBO’s set in a single knockout table. This is a downhill event containing a layout of which we believe will be a lot of fun for many of us. Rounds will be 1 V 1 and the winners will move on to the next stage when suitable. You will be racing down a layout containing many fun, yet somewhat difficult corners and turns. You will need to think strategically and create a setup of which will be uniquely perfect for this layout, giving you the best chance of winning.

In this event, names will be chosen for the knockout table structure. 2 drivers per bracket, 2/3 runs per bracket (Best out of 3), driving down a layout made by Sinanju (edited by Huski & TAZxx).

For the final, there will be a total of 4 runs to decide the winner. If it ended 2 - 2 then there would be a 5th run of which will be the decider.

We will be using a website for the Bracket / Knockout Table structure, the site we decide to use is yet to be announced. - We will announce it here once decided.

We will be streaming the event on our Twitch channel with live commentary. This can be found here: GU Twitch
