The time has come to see what level of interest there is for some Hot Lap Competitions.

Each week I will be posting a new challenge, starting tonight 4th December at Midnight GMT.

There will be 2 prizes to be won each week:
* a one off paint for the fastest time posted
* a one off paint for one entrant chosen at random

To qualify for a prize you must post your time in this thread or in the thread on the HLR club site which can be found at www.hlr.club. The design will be created on the car that each entrant runs.

Good luck everyone and drive fast.

For the first week we are off to one of my favourite tracks, guaranteed to drive you all crazy:

Yarra Valley
River Rush Cross Country
A Class
No car restrictions

Event will close at Midnight GMT on Sunday 11th December.

I was completely frustrated on this rival of your when you were in easy to beat lambo truck. I could destroy the time but just so many odd bumps and items to upset the car. I literally almost went insane try to get a clean lap.

I'm not a fan of the cross country in general. I may have another crack at it but prolly not going to do well and move on to a scramble, dirt or tarmac circuit or sprint

I'll definately compete in any of those.

These tracks are worth persevering with. In the right vehicle and set up the track is very driveable and fun when you get it right. Although it's possible to run in a lightweight vehicle, the track does seem to favour heavyweights. I felt the same way about cross country events at first, but now they are my favourites :)

Give it another go Pervasive, I've managed to put a car in the top 10 on this track in every class, and if I can it can't be too difficult LOL.

We'll probably be running on tarmac next week :)

I played around with this, this morning. A very challenging course that I hadn't spent any time at all on. I took a few test runs with the HE Raptor and they were surprisingly clean so I brought out my Raptor '17 and made a few trophy runs. I feel I put up respectable times (2.50:537 - gt - YoungishOcean) but I know I will never be a top 10 leaderboard kinds guy. I know I could probably shave a second or three with a perfect run but every time I try to get really aggressive I screw up somewhere. I may have to try one of those Ram Runners since they kinda dominate the top of the board.

Cross country and dirt are my favorite parts of H3 as they seem to be more forgiving to the radical HP heavy builds needed in H3 than pavement is.

I guess I'll try this out. Not interested much in playing the game anymore but I do like supporting HLR comps.

Idk what I have in A that's good here, but I thinking my overweight lambo truck would be a silly novelty act.

Well, after many a frustrating lap, lol, finally got a clean one at 3:00.013 in my '17 Raptor HE. I haven't got many cars built in this class yet, that aren't more tarmac friendly anyway. These HLC'S are what got me building more cars in 6.

Good times, hope I can close a title more on ya Moss, I'm sitting at #85 at this second while you're at #9 with 2:42.429 I believe. Only 18 seconds to make up, lol!!!

Good luck everybody, have fun!!

Well ran numerous dirty laps as today was my first visit to this course, ended up having to back off the gas just to get a banker lap in, the Rubicon should be good for sub 2.40 (had a 2.40.2 dirty) by someone.

Nope, your time stands, I believe you. 😊 Probably confused by your other great runs. Excellent driving!

Vehicle landed on two wheels after going over a hill or similar and it voids that runs as it registers as a collision?????

I've had that happen too Bee. I'd assumed part of the body hit the ground. At that point I just hit restart.

Not that my last run is anywhere near Here To Suffer but my latest run should be disqualified. I got major ricochet help heading to the jump ramp but game did not dirty the lap.

I will clean up my act in an attempt to be the quickest Raptor in the next day or so.
I blame the ants.
