Merry Crashmas 2: Crash Harder is the thirteenth Really Rubbish Racing Special Event, and will take place on Wednesday 13th December 2012. The event is a sequel to the inaugural Merry Crashmas demolition derby in 2011, the first RRR event to hold such an accolade. The original was a huge success, helping unwind after a long hard year of racing. As with before, the event will take place using Race Driver: Grid and will take the form of a Demolition Derby. The objective was still to win the races, but the win will come at all costs, and car-to-car-to-wall-to-other car contact was greatly encouraged. All drivers will compete in the same make and model of car as last year - the oversteer-happy and incredibly made-up Jupiter Eagleray Mk5.
The event is the first since July, after September's Formula R Festival was cancelled. This is the longest gap between Special Events in the club's history.
The event consisted of six races, each awarding points to all twelve finishers. The grid for all races was randomly assigned and featured standing starts. All races took place in a heavily modified parking "lot" known as Demolition Arena in Detroit, Michigan. The course features concrete barriers, crossovers and dirt jumps.
The driver with the most points after all six races will be the winner of the Cup. In the event of any tied scores, results countback will be used. If scores are still tied after countback, the driver with lowest combined race time over all five races will finish the the higher position. Event points will be awarded to all twelve positions in all races, regardless of whether all cars finish the race. Which they won't. In true form to American motorsport, the number of points available is stupidly vast.
Competitors will take part in six races across two versions of the Demolition Arena. 3 races on the short circuit, and 3 races on the long circuit. All races will be 20 laps long and should last 10-15 minutes.
There are three rules:
- Driving the course in the reverse direction is prohibited.
- Cutting a cross-over section will require the current lap to be completed again.
- When wrecked, do not spectate or continue to the race results screen. Doing either of these things will cause your wrecked car to disappear from the track. A track littered with wrecked cars is far more interesting.
There are two further recommendations:
- Have a beer nearby.
- Race in cockpit view. it's far more fun when you can't see all around you.
All competitors will use the game's stock Jupiter Eagleray Mk5 entered under their team name as used in previous competitions. This is to be painted in their team's custom livery complete with race number, all of which can be changed in the game's main menus.
Race Driver: GRiD allows for online lobbies of 12 players, allowing 12 Really Rubbish Racing drivers to compete.
