TruckersMP Tournament - Saturday 27th March 2021

Greetings, truckers!

A new year brings a new event! It's time to tear up the roads with the new TruckersMP Tournament featuring our custom built Racing Circuit, Drag Strip, Knock the Cone and Reversing Challenge!

Make sure you set a date in your calendar for the 27th March at 12:00 UTC. Click here for more timezones.

Our brand new competitive TruckersMP event will be making an appearance in just a few days!

The tournament will see hundreds of truckers attending, each bringing their experience behind the wheel to reach for the prestigious golden title - Tournament Champion.

As well as a lot of high-speed action, we see a lot of spin-outs, crashes, jumps, and drifting on our track. We will also see many people smash through the cones on our unique Knock the Cone event. Sounds exciting? Keep on reading...

For this event, we will be visiting our custom built version of Silverstone housing the four main events!

You must be available for whole event to enter!

The event consists of five rounds each with their own unique challenge. Each round will see some succeed and some unfortunately eliminated.


Round One

Drag Strip

The first event will consist of drag races, with eight players competing in each race. Here are the requirements and instructions on how to enter:

  • Be available from 12:00 UTC - Click here for more timezones. (The first drag race starts at 13:00 UTC. The event is expected to run for around six hours).
  • Able to understand English (to read event instructions).
  • Connect to the TruckersMP Tournament 2021 server.
  • Ensure your truck is fully fuelled, serviced, and prepared for the first event. (There is a service station and fuel station on site)
  • Meet up in London city centre, where there will be signs directing you towards the Silverstone complex and the queue system for the first event. Be sure to get their first so you don't miss out!

Please ensure you're familiar with the event rules before participating! Eight players will be selected from the queue (First come first served) to compete in a drag race. How many players qualify depends on how many players attend. For example, if 216 players compete, only half will qualify, meaning the fastest 4 of 8 from each race will qualify. The maximum number that can compete is 432 players!

After all of the races are concluded, the fastest 108 players will qualify for the next round.

If you didn't qualify, there may still be an opportunity! Should a qualified player not turn up for their event, we will randomly select a runner up, should you be online.


Round 2

Knock the Cone

For everyone who qualified for the championship, this will be your big moment! Running parallel to the drag strip is the infamous Knock the Cone event which will see a test of speed and braking. How late do you dare to slam on?

If you qualified, please ensure you are online throughout as we will start to place you concurrently alongside the first event.

Here's a quick overview of what to expect!

Having qualified for Knock the Cone, shortly before the first race begins qualified players will be teleported to the location.

There will be one practice run only, so you can get a feel for where the cones are at the end of the strip.

Your aim is to knock the front cone (marked by the first of the two white lines) over WITHOUT hitting the back two over (marked by the second of the two white lines). If you hit the back cones (or cross the second line) you will be disqualified. The first to hit the first cone but not the second is the winner!


Round 3 Quarter-Final

Reversing Challenge

Having survived Knock the Cone this next challenge will require you to hitch up your trailer as we test your reversing skills to the max with a set of different challenges.

You will race against the clock in your booth supervised by an eager pair of eyes watching for you to cross the line. This is a time trial event with each challenge getting more complex and sees one person eliminated each time you progress until only two remain!

Be careful you don't want to cross the line else you will have to start again!

You can shunt forward as many times as you like providing you remain within the lines. However, this should be a last resort as you will be racing against the others in your heat!


Round 4 Semi-Final

National Circuit

Congratulations on making it this far!

You will now get the chance to race on our coveted National Racing Circuit!

You will race against six other players on our obstacle filled track with your starting position being judged by your finishing time on the last reversing challenge!

The top three from both races will qualify for the final!


Round 5 Final

National Circuit

You're in the final!

This is the last race of the series and you've managed to outrun (or brake) the competition and you will not leave empty handed!

Survive this round to be crowned the Tournament Champion!

The races will be streamed to the official TruckersMP Twitch channel!
