Let’s meet the tracks!

Level 1, the CPF Single Topping. A simple and fast oval race track:

Level 2, Solaxis Track 1. This is a winding track through the sunny sands with a few popups and curves:
image

Level 3, Klaatu Omega Track 1. The harsh light of the gas giant casts a blue light on this winding and technical track:
image

Level 4, CPF Mega with Everything. A super tight track inside the hangar bay of a ship of the mammoth pizza delivery fleet:
image

Level 5, Solaxis Track 2. Back to Solaxis for a race across red sands with long straightaways for very high speeds and a few tight turns to keep you on your toes:
image

Level 6, Solaxis Track 3. Winding, complicated curves interspersed with breakneak straightaways make a track where one mistake can make or break your race:
image

Level 7, Klaatu Omega Track 2. Hairpin turns and elevation changes require precision control of the turbo and airbrakes:
image

Level 8, Solaxis Track 4. The lead you build in the corkscrew can be lost in a moment on the tight switchback climb to the summit:
image

Level 9, the Mathesar Belt. Dodging asteroids and attempting to collect toppings in the cockpit of the fastest ship in the Cygnus Pizza Delivery Fleet is a huge challenge, and a moment’s lapse can result in a humiliating 50 point run:
image

Level 10, the dreaded Proteinosphere. Designed as a test track for handling and performance, this track barely clings to the surface of an asteroid and requires absolute concentration and mastery to cross the line with even one topping:
image

Level 11, Polaris Track 1. The first exciting track of Season 2, this is a high-speed dash through a snowy landscape with a few light curves and one extreme hairpin where races are won or lost:

Alright folks, it’s time to MEET THE RACERS!

racer portrait
HourADayGamer is a long-time streamer, beard enthusiast and indie supporter who has become a pizza racing juggernaut. He has always dreamed of delivering hot, fresh, perfectly spherical pizzas, but was handicapped by being born in a little regarded wing of the wrong galaxy.
Catch his streams on twitch!

StefenGalaxy (Don’t call me Stephen) is a long time evening streamer who loves popping balloons and playing retro and indie games. He’s every bit as serious a podium chasing racing fanatic as his glamourous portrait suggests, and thinks nothing of dunking on opponents with his vast soundboard.
You can watch StefenGalaxy on twitch!

racer portrait
Thales Guimarães, often called by his fans the Paganini of Pizza and the Beethoven of Breadsticks enjoys trash talking opponents and wearing heavy coats. He has a natural advantage on cold weather tracks, but really joined the tournament just to visit the sun-baked plains of Solaxis.
Check out his awesome music at tacgmusic.com

racer portrait
HankTheHippy has an easy-going approach to life, but he’s laser focused on the track. Having chased HourADayGamer’s track times in the pre-season, HankTheHippy hungers for vengeance almost as much as a hot fresh slice of danger.

Sten Pett is a racer with a passion for precision and a dynamic daredevil who will stop at nothing to accomplish his twin goals in life: total pizza domination, and making it run on Linux. An avid obsolete software collector and metal enthusiast, he is entirely in it for the hat.
You could follow Sten, but he’d rather you didn’t.

racer portrait
IndieGameiacs is a podcaster, streamer, reviewer, indie journalist and beard hobbyist with a one track mind. He came in second in the pre-season, but now he’s back in his trademark teal racer to go beard-to-beard with his number one competitor, HourADayGamer.
You can follow Indiegamiacs on Twitch or on YouTube!

racer portrait
Alexander Trapp is a long-time streamer specializing in indie games and deviousness. His signature race move is taking cautious turns to lull his opponents into aggressive overtakes, and then dropping a sabotage on them! You can’t discount this pro racer whose calm under pressure earned him the nickname “Iceberg Lettuce”.
Keep up with Alexander Trapp on his awesome streams on the finer platforms everywhere.

racer portrait
Judo Cruise loves streaming indie games, cheering, and destroying other racers with his flair and infinite screen stare. Nobody can touch his lap times or his hair, and he intends to cruise by the competition while dropping memes like bits. That prize pizza is as good as his!
