    Either a horse race, or a giant sea slug

    It's a horse race, There were a few practice laps a couple weeks ago and it seemed to go very well.

    Im posting my screenshots of the races that have just finished; Apologies for the bags in shot, but I was using them to judge the time taken to cover distance to the line so I could take the finishing shot at the right point. It seems to have worked out well!

    Race 1: Winner... Vedaewen

    Race 2: Winner... Amplisa

    Race 4: Winner ... Apparently it was Europa Trader.

    I was in this race so I didn't get any screen shots, I was too busy running. But later on I queried this with Nathan and I was told I came third, behind Trader and Stone Cold? But I don't remember seeing anyone ahead of me during the race, nor overtaking me, and I'm pretty sure I was beating Trade into the the first two corners. Memory is a fickle thing though, especially perhaps because I was focused on those around me, who I edged away from until the second lap, then I clipped the South West corner on the inside, and the third lap where I accidentally mouse moved onto a bandage and then clipped the North West corner. I pulled it back from the remainder on the final straight by running down the line of bandages... but it was a close run thing, I seem to recall we were all bunched up for that final run. Does anyone have any screenshots from my race?

    Race 5: Winner... Dead heat between Nathaniel Hawk and Stone Cold

    Race 6: Overall Winner... Moira
