I got bored in my shop so I painted a little mural. Enjoy!

In Equestria, Pegasus are normally the naturally selected athletes, with powerful wings and nimble bodies. But...what if that could be enhanced, using special suits to increase their wing power tenfold? 

Enter the EPWRF, better known as the Equestrian Powered Wing Racing Federation. This sport involves ponies wearing these special suits and racing around a set course, featuring routes the challenge even the most skilled of Pegasi. 

Essentially, the suits feature a flame resistant tight suit, similar to a wonderbolts uniform, only covering the rear legs and hooves completely, a helmet that features a computer that powers a visor HUD, radio systems, as well as various other systems around the rest of the suit, rubber good covers, to aid in the stopping of a pony at such high speeds, and robotic arms that cover the users wings, increasing power and strength, as well as aerodynamics. 

The Suit: 

The suit, made up of synthetic composite materials and flexible armpit plating, with styling and colors corresponding to each racing team, is made up of three parts: The torso, the legs, and the wings. As well as rubber padding on the hooves of the suit, small flaps, found on the legs and sides, assist in steering, as well as stopping. 


The Helmet: 
The helmet is easily the most crucial component of the suits' construction, as it houses the central mainframe of the suits computers. In the right ear of the helmet, as well as left in some models, is the radio, which is used to contact pit crews, as well as deliver diagnostics from the computer to the racer audibly. As well as a radio, a HUD, or Heads Up Display, is projected onto the visor at all times, giving the racer specific details about the suit, track, as well as alerting of any danger in the racers path. 

The Race: 
In total, as of the present, there are 16 racetracks, all completely unique, all over Equestria, with approx. 6 more still in construction. Each track features an array of corners, loops, midair sections, and their own hazards. 

Despite countless measures to make this sport safer, there is still a price to pay. Every year, at least one death, among hundreds of injuries, is reported. 

Here's how the races work: 

First there is a Qualifier round, which individual racers take the track one by one and, within three laps, try to meet or exceed a benchmark speed, and lap time, around the course. Once ponies beat this time, there are allowed into the practice, which allows a racer to get used to track conditions, finalize their suit tunes, and even lay out a better time than before. After all racers have either qualified or made their attempts, as well as finished practice, the official race begins the next day. Each race is made up of fifty laps around a set course, and to win you must cross the finish line first, second, or third. Depending on the racer's placement in the race, they will earn points throughout the season which consists of 16 total races. The racer with the most points at the end wins. Starting grid positions are based on the racer's last placement on the previous course, or in some cases, their qualifying time. 

The suit parts: 

First, we have the hoof pads, otherwise known as the Brakers. These are rubber pads designed to grip the track in any given location to help a pony accelerate at the beginning of the race, or stop at any time for any reason. In addition to these pads, race suits are normally equipped with small flaps to help limit arflow around the torso, forelegs, and flanks of the suit, to assist in slowing down, turning, or more complex evasive maneuvers, if necessary. 

The suit itself is made up of several different materials, but for this lesson, we are using the Lyrus B24 RAZR, a high performance variation of the standard B24 suit, often used in the Supersonic class, which is the highest of the speed classes, which we'll talk about much later. Returning to the suit, this model is made up of Carbon Fiber, Aluminum, and a specialized component making up the body panels, known as "Carbo-Tanium", which is a mix between carbon fiber and titanium, resulting in a hyper strong, hyper lightweight material specialized for racing. 

This suit also features a lightweight helmet featuring DERSI (Dual Ear Radio System Integration) capabilities, a full color, 1080p Heads Up Display, or HUD for short, concussion protection systems, as well as the all new, standard system known as the HySSS, or HyperSonic Stabilty System, which is a computer prgram that allows the onboard M.O.S. to take complete control over braking and acceleration systems in the event of a crash, health emergency, or even in the event of a catastrophic track failure. 

The Event Classes:

In all, there are 14 classes of speed, suit type, or even racer. Here's the list and minor details about each: 

Sub-Venom: 

The first class and often referred to as the "Gateway" class, which is how many of the greatest drivers got their start, and it is also the widest class, where many suit manufacturers and beginner racers get their starts. 

Venom: 

The second class, this is the next level and goal for many S-V (short for Sub-Venom) racers. 

Sub-Flash: 

Similar to S-V, S-F is a beginner class, but with faster speeds, slightly longer races, and less opponents. 

Flash: 

This is one of the most important classes, as it is the first class that racer's will be televised, aside from select others, and the first where the Series system takes place for racers, as tours will occur, instead of individual races. 

Sub-Rapier: 

S-R class is where things begin to get a bit more dangerous. Many rookie driver's tend to be humbled here, unless they are that special type of pony, one that can overcome nearly anything. 

Rapier: 

Similar to S-R, Rapier is only slightly faster, and features new manufacturers and more strict rules, as well as longer races. 

Sub-Phantom: 

This is where things get serious. Instead of relying on wing power now, racers in this class and beyond are willing to go speeds never achievable by wing power alone by strapping jet engines and fixed wings to their backs, relying almost solely on machines to propel them forward. 

Phantom: 

In this class, the Endurance race is introduced, where racers will race insane periods of time around the course, sometimes spanning an entire 24 hours. Also, the ultimate race, known as the Galaxia Championship in Canterlot, is held in this class. 

Super Phantom:

This is where things get much, much more dangerous. Many drivers aren't ready for such intense speeds and G-forces around this class and have earned this class the title of the most dangerous class, as it has had more deaths than any other. 

Zen:


This is where speed becomes the master key to it all. Races in this class are usually very calm, and is used as the training class for the next four classes. Not many corners, just speed training, and the only jet powered class not televised, and only held on two courses. 

Super Zen: 

This is where they take Zen and add more corners, instead of upping the speed. Faster reaction times are crucial and can spell the difference between life and death in this class. 

Subsonic: 

This also simply adds more corners to the mix, as well as limited assistance from computers and requires much more skill to race in. 

Mach 1: 

These races are where things go simply insane. Impossibly crazy courses, loops, pipes, invert zones, and the like are introduced here, and have earned this class the nickname of "the Insanity Class", due to one racer literally having a mental breakdown one year due to the complexity. 

Supersonic:

The ultimate class. only 12 racers exist in this class, and are well known around the world as the greatest racers to have ever lived. It is nearly every racer's dream to get to this class, and even more so to win its championship, the Alicorn Grand Prix. Only held once every five years, this race is the longest, fastest, and most challenging route ever created, and is legendary throughout the entire world for its majesty. In the sport's entire history, there have only been 4 winners, known as Hyper Elite.

Okay, I'd like to ask nicely for you to stop spamming my profile. I know you want to Roleplay and thats awesome, but real life comes first, i'm sorry. Also, I must say that, after reading, I don't have much to work with, mostly due to the fact that your character as an all-controlling remote. Its kinda rape-fuel and gives me a bad vipe. Sorry, and I know you worked hard on it, but I just can't work with it. You win some, you lose some.

No it's fine, I appreciate the attention, but I'm just not in a good place of mind right now. You seem like an awesome role player and I'd love to make a story sometime, but I feel that one just didn't give me much walking room.
