I ran across this in the fluff of a mech from Far and Away Magazine called the NATE...it was based on racing mechs and was an old SLDF super scout mech that was faster then anything around...

So would there be mech racing going on different planets or would this be solely a Solairs deal?

Official, organized mech racing probably goes on only on Solaris, that's the only place that they would spend that kind of money on a mech and modifications for an entertainment. Unofficial mech racing probably goes on throughout the Inner Sphere. I'll bet my Spider can out run your Locust!

You would dishonor your clan and yourself by using a mech in such a dishonorable display of non-combativeness?

Who said it would be non-combatative? That Locust wouldn't run very fast with its legs shot off...

And I would expect 'Mech racing to have some degree of popularity. Remember, Battlemechs aren't the only 'Mechs out there. It's entirely conceivable that people/companies with the money might spend it on racing, such as today's F1, CART, or NASCAR.

btw...anyone know how much one of those cars is worth, and how that figure would stack up with the cost of a racing 'Mech?

yes they do spend that money on racing cars, but how much is spent on the racing tank association?

Heh... I would not be surprised if a Clanner has raced a mech as a part of their Batchall. I distinctly remember one world that decided to make a Grid Iron Football game as their arena of combat for the possession of their world. Naturally the clanners won because they fielded a team of Elementals that whupped ass big time.

It is not dishonourable for the Clans to "race", if that is the method by which the combatants have agreed to contest things.
And in some ways, if a clanner does issue a batchall for the Pot of a Mech Race (no matter how small), it legitimizes it completely.

Clan Behaviour can be very flexible, if you investigate it fully. It is a part of their bidding system, to cut back their forces to
only the barest minimum required to win the contest - the contest as agreed upon by all combatants.

Wouldn't be surprised if a Clanner would issue a Batchall to take all the Property on the Monopoly Board - for the Glory of the Clans, Warriors, for the Glory of the Clans! HAHA! Innersphere Dog, you have landed on Clan Jade Falcons Park Avenue with a Hotel - pay the rent, Surat, or I will bankrupt you!

But since there are different versions of Monopoly, wouldn't that be Grand Coucil Hall with a Jumpship? And, of course, you'd never want to play against the Diamond Shark guy.

alright NileIngrams, that was possibly the greatest thing I have heard in awhile, the vision of the fate of a planet being decided over a game of Monopoly will stick with me for a long time.
You know when it comes to racism, people say: " I don't care if they're black, white, purple or green"... Ooh hold on now: Purple or Green? You gotta draw the line somewhere! To hell with purple people! - Unless they're suffocating - then help'em.
