  • You can start submitting qualifier times as early as July 12th
  • There will be a kick off stream on Saturday morning that will open the challenge. At that point, just go into Settings → Reset Track Times, as it’ll be easier to collect your track times.
  • Race those tracks all you want , and get those great race times! Make sure to screenshot your times.
  • Post your best times for the tracks to twitter/this thread. At least to one of these for it to count!
  • FINAL TIMES FOR ALL TRACKS must be posted by Sunday Morning, 10am Eastern Time.
  • The FINALISTS will be contacted to arrange a costream Sunday (at a mutually good time), and then the final race is a head-to-head costream, best out of 5 … on the brand new track!

What good is a contest without prizes?

Well, here’s what you’re competing for!

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:

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

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

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:

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

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

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:

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:

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:

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:

Level 12, Polaris Track 2. The qualifying track for the April tournament and the second track of Season 2, this arcade-inspired track has a shortcut, a jump, and some pretty rough surprises in store for the unwary! Proceed with caution and all speed!

Level 13, Vulcan. The final track of the April tourney, this race track is all about timing and awareness. Racing on a live volcano on a newly formed planet is too hot for most!

Level 14, Luminos Station. This track on the beautiful but very popular luxury station orbiting the beautiful vacation planet Luminos, in the stunning Vita System is a bit congested with traffic.

Level 15 Luminos Track 1. Luminos, Jewel of the Vita System has a fantastic track with some great sights, but it seems that the hatch has been left off the maintenance tunnel.

HourADayGamer has retired to the wealth and prestige of the intergalactic sports commentator circuit after his two back-to-back wins. He’ll be back for the Tournament of Champions, but don’t worry, I’m sure he will post his insight (and track times) to inspire the other racers this month. As a retired champion, he was in a position to help refine the track and help us prepare it for the big event.

Indiana Crohns, the man who doesn’t know the meaning of the word quit. He took the tracks by storm in the April tourney, with a fiery win on track 13. He will be back to claim the ultimate prize in the Tournament of Champions - but don’t worry, he will also share his encouragement, critiques, and phenomenal track times with this month’s racers!
Come hang out and see his amazing plague doctor masks on Twitch

Purple Thiccmin is an indie variety streamer and speedrunner with a penchant for precision and a hunger for victory that was barely appeased when he planted @GardenOfIndie on May’s Track 14. Sure to have plenty of tips for fellow racers this month!

Cardboard Tier is a dog-loving beard enthusiast with huge streaming skills and excellent race form. He put in great times every month finally climbing to victory on June’s fast and furious Track 15. He has at last proved to everyone that when it comes to racing, his tier is Epic.

Now once again, it’s time to MEET THE RACERS!

First, the veterans:

GardenOfIndie is no stranger to intense racing! After dismissing the famed Proteinosphere as too easy and obliterating some of Season 1’s best tracks, he decided that it was time for a real challenge. Armed only with precision and a feline chewbacca, he’s going all the way. Only three people have a gold trophy on the dreaded track 10, and two of them are in the Winner’s Circle. Is there anything else these racers will have in common soon?

TheLamppostGaming is the light at the end of the track! He’s so fast, he’s been known to hand over the controls to his daughter mid-race to give others an even chance. That all ends once the tournament starts, he’ll be taking no prisoners. Don’t worry if you can’t keep up, he’ll keep the light on for you in the winner’s circle.

L1L F3LL4 is part wyvern, part man, part myth, and all speed. Tireless in his promotion of his fellow indies, he and his wife form an amazing team chasing the ultimate glory: the Cygnus Pizza hat. Will they take home the prize, or have to buy their own pizza?
Watch them on Twitch to see!

Chaoticfear19 is a passionate reviewer and indie game player often seen on the better twitch streams, or leaving well-thought-out reviews. His calm demeanor hides a ravenous competitor who will stop at nothing to decimate detractors and reach the pinnacle of pizza perfection.

Just Antibody is a relaxed and mellow streamer known for his love of Across the Obelisk and his bionic arm. Some say he’s really just three @IndianaCrohns in a trenchcoat, and that he knows two facts about ducks and they’re both wrong.
All we know is… he’s not the Stig (but he might be the Stig’s streamer cousin!)

Cronos Stampede is nothing if not a fighter, and he’ll be bringing his fighting spirit, indomitable flair, and quite possibly his beach wear back this month in his pursuit for delivery domination. He’s a loud voice for equality, and will be happy to leave everyone equally in his wake as he races to victory. And a cunning hat.

Reno219 is a variety streamer with a love of Smite - and Pizza! Don’t let his quiet persona fool you, under that relaxed attitude lies a need for speed and the heart of a champion. Reno219 is out for Pizza… and won’t let anyone stand in his way.

NestingDolls is new to the tourney, but she’s got plenty of practice schooling noobs, and she’ll be out there with her two cute puppy copilots teaching the veteran racers that she’s got many layers and each one is better than the previous, like an onion. Or possibly a parfait.
