Well, this is disheartening. Can I ask for a rules clarification?

I am wondering about the distance one. For an S2 hypercar, my track turned out to be 9 miles. Rules stipulate 8 miles. Now where I ponder this is that you say "or" so a circuit track with three laps of 3mi would be okay even though longer distance? My track even with low class cars still falls under the 10 minutes because it has high speed sections.

So is my submission (above) invalid just because of that distance on a point to point?

Just clarifying a few questions:

1) I'll look into the reason why some of you are unable to set a specific car class.
2) In terms of the cars that should be used, just stick to the information given in the first post, rather than the information given in the live stream as a few things we're changed last minute.
3) (Mainly response to @Vaporisor) - The track must be within the rules. So yes, having a track which is over 8miles with point-to-point (e.g 9 miles in your case) will be invalid for the competition. This is because we may potentially feature some of these within our live streams and would like to keep to a set time/distance.

Thanks everyone for your entries so far!

The race ends at the Northern point of the lake with a fast downhill flourish

Thank You RetroKrystal …

as for setting specific class, between us we have established that you must create the event while in a 'Horizon Life [online] session' … it's in 'solo' that the problem arises

Thank you for the reply :-) I do need to revamp my track so can snip out a bit of length. In testing with friends, there is one checkpoint that caused people to miss turns. No bueno. There has been a few hassles with the route creator, but starting to get the feel. I will pass along more feedback by the submission ticket for suggestions.

My tips for builders that I do now to deal with setting issues is:

1. There is no map in route creator, practice to plan your route. Vital for cross country.
2. Set route, but quit out instead of completing
3. Ensure are online, then can change start type, weather, set class etc from blueprint.
4. Run it with different cars, weather, etc. Sometimes just a slight change in time can make a huge effect on your final outcome.

There actually is a way to get the map in route creator. But you have to set to an automatic transmission. With an automatic trans, the X button places checkpoints and the double square button will pull up the map. Extra useful when making a cross country race. Hope this helps.

- Route Start Location … Greendale Super Sprint [central Edinburgh]

- Description … An 'Anything Goes' Class S2 circuit race of 2 miles per lap [3 laps = 6 miles total] 'Crossroads' makes the most of Edinburgh's familiar grid system of streets allowing this route to cross itself in multiple locations; not a problem if the racer's are well packed and racing close … but, as the race unfolds and the field becomes fragmented there is a definite possibility to be 'broadsided' if you don't keep your wits about you. So, as you charge down that final straight to the finish, be poised on the brakes, be prepared to 'give way' .. This is a 'chicken run' with consequences

- Length of route (miles) … 2 miles
- Type of route (Point-to-point or circuit) … Circuit
- Laps (If circuit) 3 laps [total 6 miles]

The river now becomes your path taking you to and through Mortimer Gardens, over a narrow bridge and back to the river course. Navigate the slalom of checkpoints, exit at the cottage and it's up and over the snowy fields, through a clearing and onto the finish which is set tightly to the right of the houses

- Description … Starting at 'Holyrood Park Trail' take your car around and over 'Arthur's Seat' then drive to the sea, where the lighthouse is your beacon. From there, negotiate the rocks and head for dry land. Cut through the fields and onto the rail track before heading back to the beach. The full route is 7 miles; driving over practically every surface in the game: Asphalt, dirt, grit, gravel, grassland, pasture, marsh, soil, train track, sand, crag, scree and sea. In a B-class vehicle on a wet Autumnal morning at sunrise, hopefully in a bit under 6 minutes. Don't expect to win this race on your first attempt, a little course knowledge goes a long way. As with every custom track, I suggest you have 'Driving line' on full for at least your first journey down this outrageous yet fun route

- Route Start Location … Beach View Cross Country

- Description … this is tough, it's meant to be .. you will fail unless you can control the brake, not just the accelerator. The journey is simple, the terrain is the problem. A fast start sends you down from the moor to the beach, then you begin your way back up via the swollen river. A narrow slalom of a fast flowing river needs good control to negotiate the rocks and shelves that you cant see as well as the obvious ones. Escape the river and on towards the Mudkickers adventure park, get through there and then you head for the Stones, literally. More of a survival adventure than a race, except, you don't want to be last. [did I mention it all takes place on a dark winter night and it's blowing a blizzard … it is Xtreme]

- Type of route (Point-to-point or circuit) … point-to-point

There is a bug on Route creator. For some reasons when testing my track, the first checkpoint refuses to activate for unknown reasons. I lost 30 minutes of work :( . Will remake my track another time then. So for those who create a track, be aware of that bug.
