Motor ball

(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

Each team has :

1 goal keeper, 3 strikers, 1 defender,

the aim of the game is for the strikers to throw/kick the ball into 3 hoops wich will be gaurded by the oppositions keeper. But they have to do this without the oppositions defender knocking them over. There are no other rules except all the players will be on go-karts except the keeper who will be on a moving platform .

       A few nagging questions:   

       1) What kind of go-karts did you have in mind? Downhill racer-type? Roll-cage mini-cars?   

       2) How are they supposed to kick the ball if they're in go-karts?   

       3) How are the defenders supposed to 'knock them over' if they too are in go-karts?   

       4) 'No other rules' - no penalties, time limits, out-of-bounds or anything?   

       5) This moving platform... is it self-controlled, motorized, mag-lev, piezo-electric powered or WHAT?

       3 hoops? Knocking people about? Few evident rules? Would this be Quiddich?

       My brother once flipped a gocart, which landed on him and hot oil poured out of him. You would not want to use that gocart for this game.

       There's a real game called Whirlyball that is somewhat similar. See link.

       [bung]: //which landed on him and hot oil poured out of him.// - I bet he was shocked about that.

       Not nearly as shocked as when the hot oil poured into him.
