Default Aerial deathrace

Some of my favourite moments in bop are chasing a low flying oponent who makes a run for it. I was watching than new deathrace film with stratham and thought it would be cool to see if there would be any way to set up a race on bop. Something like 3 laps around a map.
Obviously it would be hard to mark the course so it would need to b pretty simple like up and down the coast on Britain or Sicily. I thought maybe someone could fly to each end and crash to mark the turns.
Anyone any thoughts? Or have I been drinking too much!

I like the idea

Good thinking on having someone crash to mark the course layout.

If any of this progresses, you can count on me to be there

I thought about this some more and realised you wouldnt be able to use guns because a crash would cause confusion on the markers and also the killed player could respawn anywhere.

Why not do it as per rallying and have stages:
stage 1: manston to hawkinge
stage 2: hawkinge to Canterbury etc
that way you can still have your guns but you then have a staging point for re-assembly ready for the next stage?
Just a thought...

we could race throgh beggars canyon and score some womp rats with our t-21's.

Seriously though does il2 have any decent "tracks" theres a perfect map in over g with its own version of beggars canyon we race down all the time. Haven't really seen anything syuitable in il2

There's gotta be a course around dover.. Radar station, harbour entrance, dover castle, the cliffs.. All easily findable.

But without putting people down on the ground at the turning points it'd be wide open to abuse.

Personally I'm up for any kind of non combat flying across any of the modes.

Why not play it in Capture Airfields with two airfields. The race would be whoever takes off from one and lands at the other the fastest.
