Murder Highway Sports for wasteland gladiators

So this is a quick list of major vehicle combat sports. Ten years of such events has made other sports obsolete. Cricket, soccer, rugby and football variants have experimented with more lethal combat have been developed. Rollerball has replaced netball as most played sport and most popular sport played by women. These are some ideas and prize guidelines to create races. My party after a year of play are at bottom of semi pro with a few career highlights promising they will make a-list.

Amatuer shows tend to have improvised plate armour and mostly a single machine gun on old cars.

Semi pro cars can survive machine gun bursts and hev multiple weapon systems on new cars. Older Gentech interceptors 4-9 years old often appear in semi pro class.

Pro team drive custom build heavily armed single passenger pursuit cars like gentech interceptor. Lasers, missiles and other expensive weapons systems and ammo used

Amatuer events are weekly
Semi pro monthly
Pro team quarterly

I plan a route on googl;e maps and draw a line to represent route on paper
I work out how many days and mark pitsop checkpoints
Each stage between pitstop checkpoints is a segment
For each segment I roll road conditions, terrain and weather
For each segment I roll a d3 encounters
I generate pitstops and roll and create encounters for each character in camp

DeathraceMulti stage legalized outside of City control zones. A popular telivised event reying on the lawless non urban zones world wide. Official race management select and prewarn people on route about the Deathrace. Spread world wide and imitated by local youths everywhere. Drivers race but more points are given for vehicular slaughter of pedestrians than anything else. Locals often prepare defences. Fans try to get killed by favorite drivers. Big prizes in three divisions (amatuer, semi pro and pro teams). Terrorist protesters leave traps for cars or sacrifice selves carrying placards. As the first such event it is pretty tame now as copies more violent and based on car vs car. Most have 3 day events with a pit stop zone to recover over night. This is part of the media spectacle also.
Racers may not open fire on each other or race officials
Racers may not open fire in start or finish zones on anyone
Racers may ram or bump each other
Racers obtain points for running over pedestrians
Score points for killing other car crews only if they are on foot
Score points for completing sections in place holder positions

Chicken Race
Racers compete for who is fastest and bravest. Mostly amatuer or criminal with short tracks.  Racers either race head on into a collision or race at a cliff and the first to chicken out loses. Most popular with teens or the desperate for cash. Bets pay for racers efforts and some bet their cars.

Cannonball Run
A non car vs car yearly illegal race challenges racers to cover multi state route and avoid law officials. Shabby and poorly run but popular. Despite conflicts with law a popular event and has many celebrity motor murder sport veterans. Showmanship contributes to fans and sponsorship. From Coober Pedy (South Australia - a underground opal mine town) to Alice Springs (Northern Territory near site of Ayers Rock). Fierce gang fights in wasteland, passes through 1960's A bomb sites on Emu Flats.

Road War

Usually two gangs battle over a square battlefield. Originally unofficial and some took days or weeks. TV rights have ruined this event say old fans. Now teams have a budget and build a combat team and fight to the death. Some events battle over a strongpoint, a resource, a hostage, a moving battle truck or some other prize.

This yearly charity sponsors pay racers and racers donate cash to charity. Highly televised and a good profile raising event.

Some get sponsors to reward per kill others pay for the drivers death. At the end is a huge bachelors and spinsters ball which is a drunken vomit spraying rocknroll dance.
