Number of Seasons6

Formula MRT is the second racing championship event after NASKart hosted on the MRT. It is a horse racing event that has races in several different cities and towns across the New World.

How Hosts are Chosen

When a season of Formula MRT is announced and a successful interest poll conducted, players can apply for their city/town to be a host by telling HarborRandom852. Harbor will deny or approve the host city/town for any reason.

Points System

The points system depends on the number of racers participating in that race and what position they get. Every participant of the race who finishes will earn at least one point.

The winner of the race (the racer that finishes in first place) will get the same number number of points as there are number of racers that took part in the race.

The second place finisher will earn one less point than the winner, and so forth until the last finisher earns one point. The mathematical formula for the points awarded for any finishing position p with number of participants n is (n + 1) - p.

Participants who do not finish the race for whatever reason do not earn points.

Example for a race with 10 participants:

Finishing Position Points Awarded
1 10
2 9
3 8
4 7
5 6
6 5
7 4
8 3
9 2
10 1

Unlike Season 1, Season 2 used slightly slower Not So Fast Boi V3s instead of Fast Boi V4s. It was the only season to run 8 races instead of 6.

Great Northwestern Race: October 23rd 2021

Harbor decided to host a spin-off event: the Great Northwestern Race on October 23rd 2021. The event would consist of one singular race: from Norwest through Kaloro City, Carnoustie, Larkspur to Miu Wan. The race ran along highways, most notably the A92.

Needn_NL was the winner of the event, with AirplaneNiner coming in second place, Minecraft252 in third.

Harbor was also drunk throughout the event, having drank some fruit beer.

Season 3: February 12th 2022, February 19th 2022

Season 3 was supposed to happen in December 2021. However, Harbor would delay it due to the fallout of the infamous October SSM. As the server finally began to recover in the early weeks of 2022, he would announce a 3rd season.

Unlike the past 2 seasons, the sixth and final host of Formula MRT was kept secret, something that will carry on to all later seasons. Harbor and Hightech_TR conspired to "leak" the final host as Central City, when in reality it was GSM Town all along. Many fell for this trick, as Harbor even "leaked" it in a private group chat treating it as real.

The season was also fraught with issues. Both Calgary and GSM Town's races had to be redone due to unexpected issues with the track. There was also an area in GSM Town that according to some racers, lagged the server.

AlphaDS retook the crown to be the first double Formula MRT champion this season, with lalaboy in second and frogggggg in third.

Season 4: June 25th 2022, July 2nd 2022

Season 4 took place during the summer of 2022. This season used even slower Not So Fast Boi V4s, making them easier to control and to track for broadcasting. This was also the first time a linear track was used for a Formula MRT race instead of a circuit: the secret race had a route through Bahia similar to the Great Northwestern Race's route. Furthermore, it also spawned the infamous "banana my ass" joke.

AlphaDS became a three-time champion in this season, with PaintedBlue in second and chimata in third.

Season 5: February 18th 2023, February 25th 2023

Due to some internal issues and Harbor getting tempbanned, Season 5 was delayed significantly. Eventually, it finally took place in early 2023, sparking the best Formula MRT season yet. The secret race was held once again, this time in Boston.

Surprisingly, michabos had managed to defeat the reigning three-time champion AlphaDS and take the crown to be Formula MRT's third champion. Alpha was the runner-up, with ItsNotJasper in third.

Season 6: July 8th 2023

Unlike other Formula MRT events, Season 6 was held on just one day. This season changed the race vehicles used once again, now choosing between Fast Boi V4s and Not So Fast Boi V4s depending on the track width and openness. Only Keriyowna's circuit used the Not So Fast Boi V4s. In addition, it was held during Asian morning (2am UTC) rather than Asian night (12pm UTC) unlike Harbor's other events. Furthermore, the event was shorter than expected, as while both Harbor and Hightech_TR estimated it would take an hour and a half, the event didn’t even last an hour, possibly due to the fact that most of the races had only 3 laps. However even if they had more, it wouldn’t have made the event much longer.

The secret race was once again held on a linear track that passes through Cape Cambridge.

AlphaDS would once again take top spot in the standings to be an unprecedented four-time champion, but with kingsnake coming in a close second. Third place was shared between Worrski and Chimata.
