I'm the one in the Yellow/Black armor 😁

That went pretty good. I noticed that close support using the headlights to flood the area around the bike is beneficial. It only is an issue. I didn't read the rule book, but if I'm not mistaken, then each team can have 2 drivers, 1 support ship. The support ship also holds the spare vehicles.
I used the SH is very maneuverable compared to bigger support ships. Constant adjusting course, always strafing up, because you point your nose down at the driver in a collision course with the moon. I also ended up strafing side wards, flying diagonal to the drivers vector. It gives the best angle, while overshooting can be easily prevented by kicking the brakes and changing direction.
Now practice this in a bigger support ship. If only the search lights on the Red were on the bottom. Then the pilot could concentrate on flying close, the copilot could operate the search light. I don't know if the Red can hold any vehicle 🤔

I'm testing Carrack's lights right now; it looks that it has stronger floodlights than Starfarer, so this could be our support ship. We just need to test the fuel efficiency in atmosphere and check how many bikes or vehicles can be loaded into the vehicle hangar.

Official statement on using medical gameplay., Cutlass Red and Carrack during Daymar Rally 2951

I've contacted Cor5aire, Daymar Rally founder and organizer, and asked him for the clarification on the use of med gameplay and Carrack, both recently implemented in game.

As for the first one, at this stage the Daymar Rally rules state that if the racing team member is killed during the race, they are removed from the competition. The team member could be healed, but he or she cannot be revived (respawned) and continue participating in the race. Therefore, Cutlass Red [ and Carrack ] could be only used to heal the team member in case of any injuries.

As for the Carrack, according to Cor5aire, the ship is too large to be used as the support ship, so it would probably not be allowed. However, organizers are still discussing this.

Test Squadron Rally Team Practice March 15

On the next practice I'd like to practice canyon crossing and obstacle avoidance. Let's check if it's worth to take alternate route to avoid jumping into the deep canyon in bikes and buggies and then climbing on the other side. We have already learned that in some cases it takes a lot of time to climb back to the route, and that in most of the cases we have no idea what's on the other side of the rim -- especially at night.

I have selected a canyon located 14.3km from Shubin and 78.6km from Eager Flats -- see images below. Alternate routes are marked B and C, obviously.
I left my Carrack in there; hopefully it would respawn in the same location so we could use it as a waypoint.

Also, let's test how much the bike pilots need to strafe up to avoid dangerous rocks that could throw them in the air or kill them.
It would be also great to capture all test attempts on video to perform the "what-killed-me" analysis later.


-----
Notes:
  • Assembly point is Shubin on Daymar, as usual;
  • In case we arrive at night, we should wait until sunrise; in the meantime we could have some ad-hoc fun and kill each other, as usual;
  • We need at least Cutlass Red and/or Carrack for the medical support, as we expect to die frequently;
    As mentioned above I left my Crck near Shubin; Feel free to set your default ICU in it.
