League: Online Autoracing Organization (oAo)

Online Autoracing Organization  |  oAo

Reports by Michi Kovacs, Robert Fleurke.

The philosophy of oAo is, as the motto says, to be a league that is more than 'just' showing up to race. To have fun sharing the passion of online Autoracing, but with the importance of RESPECT and SAFETY. These two elements cannot be over-stated.. we have long races in which there is time to let the race unfold, and not do silly things in the early goings. i cannot emphise enough, the importance of CLEAN racing, and how it will make a league excel when we all drive as tho our fellow racers LIVES depended on YOU making the right moves... go for it.. but make it SAFE for everyone!

Drivers here practice at minimum a week in advance of their event. Often spending hours perfecting their craft at a given track. to be taken out of a race in turn 1 by someone who is impatient, or making a banzai passing attempt on the first lap is paramount to inexcusable bad etiquette, and poor decision making.

There is some complexity in oAo's Rules and Approach to a more realistic form of sim racing. It may seem daunting at first, but its really not so when you read through the steps to build an understanding. Be Smart from the Start!
