ROAR Off Road Cup
2300GMT, 11 March
Have you got the skill and ability to negotiate the toughest climbs and descents where flat out speed is replaced by controlled speed. A badly damaged or destroyed vehicle could drop you back multiple places but fast, technical and consistent speed is crucial. Off-road or SUV vehicles are needed but what will you choose?
Set within one race. 30 competitors battle it out though 68 check points for approx 60 mins. The race takes you to the top of the highest peaks and the farthest corners of The GTA Map.
Navigation is key, check points are deliberately spaced miles apart.
You don't want to wreck your truck, a respawn will set you back miles and you must pan your route to the next check point using your knowledge of the GTA terrain. A wrong move could cost you minutes.
Dotted throughout the race are a number of Technical climbs which must be overcome. The climbs are enclosed with the use of props, and can only be completed correctly by hitting the check point within the enclosure.
Everyone's route will be different, everyone has a chance but who will be the quickest.
Vehicle choice is vital, the class will be set as off-rd what will you choose ?
The sandking will fair better on the climbs and allow you to overcome the tough terrain quickly, but on the long open speed sections, the brawler, injection or dubster 4x4 will race ahead.
Maybe the 6x6 or rebel then ?
Both climb well, both are quick and have a little more clearance. If you want to get those tricky decent done quickly why not choose the insurgent ? It's extra armour will avoid costly explosions and frustrating respawns. The choice is of course yours
