>REGISTRATION will be closed at 16:00. Sorry but I need time before the race to organize everyone so we can fleet up.
>RACE FLEET will start forming at 17:00
>STARTING SYSTEM will be announced in the DEATH RACE 2010 in-game channel starting at 16:30
As the rules clearly state, ANY aggro in the starting system will result in pilots being kicked from fleet. ONLY fleet members can win or finish the race.
As to DC'ing. IF THAT HAPPENS to you during the race, convo me and you will be entered back into fleet.
Otherwise, read the rules, show up on time and race fast and die hard.
