- Aces High Extreme Air Racing Leage (AHXARL/AHEARL) supports races that run once a week, with a different course and different aircraft each week. There are typically about 30 pilots competing, and the courses are much more exciting than could be implemented in real life, with portions of the courses going under bridges and through hangers. Do you like to race your car, your boat . . . your office chair at work? Did you like to race other kids on your bike? If so, this is the sport for you. You start her up when you hear "Gentlemen, start your engines!" Then, when the starting cannon goes off, you firewall it, and you're off -- wingtip to wingtip and nose to tail with dozens of other racers, all looking for that fastest line. It's a rush!
Racing takes place every Tuesday Night at 10PM Eastern/7PM Pacific, in the Special Events Arena (SEA). The event is open to everyone that with a paid subscription the Aces High II. No Pre-registration is required. Just Show and Go!

- Definition of a race
- A race is comprised of 3 heats. Race points are determined by an average of each racers performance for the 3 heats
- Definition of a Heat
- A heat is an individual race that is comprised of 2 or more laps
- Race points are awarded on a pre-set scale.
All Racers are Awarded 1 point just for attending a minimum of 1 heat each week Each racer that finishes at least one of 3 heats will receive an additional point.
Points awarded for place finishes are as such, and and overall placing is determined by your average heat points. 18 points 1st place 17 for 2nd this continues by one until 1 of 2 things happen
- A. there are less than 18 finishers for the race
- B. there are more than 18 finishers for the race.
In the case of "A", for example, if there are only 5 finishers between all 3 heats, points would go from 18 to 14.
In the case of "B", for example, if there were 22 finishers, positions 18-22 would receive 1 pt each, or in other words, finishing points.
If at any point 2 racers tie in their heat points, both racers receive the same amount of points. For example, if both racers tie for 4th place overall, each racer will receive points for 5th place.
The maximum points a racer can receive for any single race is 20. 1 for attending, 1 for finishing, and 18 for a win.
- Heat Points are awarded based on the maximum number of heat finishers for any given heat. For example, heat 1=20 finishers, heat 2=15, and heat 3=12, The point scale used for that race would be 20 points. So for each individual heat, the winner would receive 20 pts, 2nd 19, etc. The combined total of the 3 heats is then divided by 3 to determine the race overall winner.
