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:
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:

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:
image

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.

Level 16 Giordano. Giordano is the luxury low-G vacation destination and fun spa known for its junior pizza race track and the wild low gravity hijinks that people love to engage in. If you venture into the huge parking garage, remember where you parked!
image

Level 17 Orion. The mineral and material rich asteroid belt provides ample opportunities for pilots to showcase their precise piloting as they handle this incredibly challenging track.

Six of the final eight MCs fill out the Cygnus Pizza Corp’s Winner’s Circle in September:

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.
Catch his streams on twitch!

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!

Time to meet the racers! As veteran racers opt in, we’ll update with their info.

racer portrait
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?

Commodore FadedKamui is a huge supporter of indie games and a great streamer who streams on Glimesh . He has proclaimed his intent to dominate the tournament so be prepared for him to leave all of his great manners and niceness by the wayside - that’s just extra mass when he’s coming for the Pizza!

Watch his streams over on Glimesh and be prepared for a chill time.

racer portrait
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.
Catch his awesome streams on twitch!

NestingDolls is still fairly 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.

racer portrait
Suraruiso Gaming is fast, furious, and driven - on the track. Off track he’s a chill dude who just wants to play games and support his fellow vets and indies. After being sidelined in July, he’s back with a vengeance. Nothing will stop him from channeling the true power of the sloth to unlock the furious interdimensional speed available only to those who take their time.
Catch up with him on Twitch!

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.

EpicSyringe said it best in his bio:
“I’m a variety streamer with an emphasis on bodying bosses. And this month, I’ll be bodying the bosses of CPR. I heard they were tough, but I’m epicness incarnate. And nothing gets the better of me. You best be prepared Cyprus, the absolute legend has arrived!”

Edallical is a variety streamer with a passion for ray tracing and a dedication to the dab. His streams are filled with good times, fun vibes, and more memes than you can fit in a mower. He’s come to the Cygnus galaxy in pursuit of a late pizza delivery, and he won’t stop until he’s tracked it down and taken home the proof that he’s the best.

Kriogenic is a variety streamer who mainly enjoys roguelikes and game randomizers. He also enjoys some healthy competition and when L1L_F3LL4 gifted him CPR, it was time to race.

The inspiration for making the fourth ship so slow that it can be lapped twice by a normal racer, Jess Alter reads far faster than she pilots a pizza racer ship. Despite knowing that she’d be faster getting out and pushing the ship, Jess is committed to bluster her way through the first hours of the championship with braggadoccio even as she comes in second (or third) against the A.I. racers.

racer portrait
Mytho is a developer, streamer, and pizza purist who is already famous for finding interesting ways to break the tracks. Let’s see if he can break the speed record this time!
