oXigen Digital Slot Racing @ Auckland

Recommended Posts

Racing has been going pretty well here in Auckland. We have switched from SSD to oXigen and we have 7 regulars on Wed nights.

We are racing GT3 cars with regulations similar to DiSCA GT3 Euro Series. 

The cars are magnless (of course). The main difference from DiSCA reg are the use of 17K Baby King/Baby Raport motors (the baby sprinter would be too much on this track) and instead of sponges we use NSR tyres. 

I wanted to give a go at videoing some of the sessions to show how we do digital slot racing up here. 

The first video below is the 5 min qualify session: we do qualify to set the grid for Race 1.

The second video is Race 1: a  14 min endurance race. Our evening racing consists of four races of 14 min each.  

We use RCSO2 as a race management software which support fuel and tyre simulations: when we run out of fuel and/or tyres we go in the pitlane for a pit stop. 

I know that some of you might find the track calls annoying: this is the way we like it because instead of having spare people to marshal we are all actively racing which we think is the best way of using our time (who likes sitting there and marshal!). The videos show the racing this Wed evening when only 5 of us could make it. With 7 drivers we are almost at capacity on this track. This means that if we get more people to join us we might switch to team racing in which case, we can use the spare team mates as marshals. 

The videos were captured on a phone clamped on a vice on top of a shelf so the quality is not the best.

Race 1

if you are in the Auckland area and would like to try your hand at this sort of racing, let me know. We have spare controllers and cars.

Really good to see what you're doing, and see some digital racing Gio.

Thank you guys. Next time will try to upload videos of all the 4 races we do in each session.

The first two are similar to the one you have seen. The Race 3 is in semi-dark conditions and Race 4 is in total dark conditions. 

I love racing in the dark ;-)
