Lightbulb TOG Chernarus Gumball Ralley

Just had an idea that I would like to bounce around and see if it gets some legs and some help in organizing.

The idea is to start a (TOG) vehicle event. It will be a rally race across Chernarus between two locations.

For example start in Kamenka and the finishing line will be Berezino or the NE airfield.
2 people per vehicle and only the passenger can use a GPS and map.
First team to cross the finishing line gets a price (Ghillie suit for example).

We could make the race more interesting by limiting the amount of fuel to start with, so teams need to refuel as quickly as possible on the way.
Another possibility would be that teams need to enter their own vehicle and they have, lets say 3 days to find a suitable vehicle on the server that will stage the event.

This is possibly the coolest idea I've heard.

I'd like to find a few pushbikes and do a Tour de Chernarus.

Not necessarily, the shortest distance to the finishing line might be offroad, so the offroad capabilities of an ATV or Hilux might offset the road speed of a car.

You would also have to refuel at some point, so navigation and fighting off Zombies adds another level.

Either way, could be interesting
We will need a chopper for TV broadcast

lol We could possibly look at a city to surf marathon too.

Start on bikes at Berezino, grab a car at Solichny, then party boat out to that island miles off shore. Beer on ice beside the computer is a requirement for the boating stage.

I'm all for it, great idea.
Maybe the route could be down the main coast, maybe from Berezino to Cherno? Road cars could take the highway, or if they have the navigation skills the small roads, while off-road vehicles could cut the corner of the map.. Fairly high pop areas and probably long enough to warrant a fuel stop.

Chopper camera crew is a must.

ATV racing too? Half the key to winning would be not flipping the thing.

Yeah ATVs should be allowed too. I really like the idea of announcing a server 3 days before the event and you have to find a vehicle in this time.

What would be a good time of the day for all the people in different timezones?
