The Great Dragon Race (21/02/15)
From Dragon Mania Legends (DML) Wiki
The Great Dragon Race is a recurring, race-style Clan Event, in which members of participating Clans complete various tasks to earn ingredients needed for recipes. The ingredients are then used to prepare a specific dish over a set time frame. Finally, the completed dish is fed to the Clan Dragon, allowing it to move forward on the racetrack, similar to Sugar Rush, another race-style Clan event.

Explanation of Mechanics
The Great Dragon Race runs for 4 days when all participating Clans in the game are split into groups of maximum ten, in accordance to the league they are currently in. These groups then compete against one another to win the race. Clans can participate only if they qualify by having a Clan Dragon fully hatched.
Each member can cook a maximum of 30 recipes to earn points in the Event. After that limit is reached, up to 5 additional recipes can be cooked in exchange for 20 Gems per recipe. Only one recipe can be cooked at a time. Trainers can opt to refresh recipes once every 2 hours for free by pressing the button and waiting for the requisite refresh time. An immediate refresh of a recipe costs Gems, and is done by pressing the Skip button. Each recipe has a different rarity and takes a different amount of time to cook. The recipes given are random and the chances of their rarity varies. Once a dish is complete, it can be fed to the Clan Dragon, allowing it to move forward in The Great Dragon Race.
For the duration of this event, Clan Quests (in addition to the regular rewards) award ingredients needed for recipes. The ingredients that are given are randomly generated by the game; thus, no ingredient is bound to a particular type of quest.
The ingredients that a Trainer currently has can be accessed by going to the recipe selection screen and pressing the button. Returning to the recipes screen, from the ingredients screen, is done by pressing the X button.
Ingredient Donations & Requests
In addition to completing Clan Quests, Trainers can request specific ingredients in Clan chat once every 3 hours by visiting the ingredients screen, pressing the desired ingredient, then pressing the Ask! button in the popup that appears. Whenever any Clan member makes a request for ingredients, a notification appears in the bottom-right corner of the Clan tab on the Islands screen and automatically requests 5 of the chosen ingredient. Each Clan member can donate 1 to 5 ingredients per request, with the maximum limit for each donation set at 5. However, multiple Clan members can donate. Donating is done by pressing the Donate button to the right of the ingredient on the request. Each Clan member can donate up to a total of 40 ingredients per day on various requests. Pressing the i button right next to the ingredient shows the Trainer how many times they donated that day and how much time is left until the donation limit resets.
Once the Trainer has enough ingredients to cook a recipe, they must select a recipe and then press the Start button at the right of it; pressing this commences cooking.
Recipe Types and Ingredients
Each recipe has a different rarity and thus a different difficulty level, ingredients required, as well as a time limit for completion. The more rare a recipe is, the more challenging it is to complete and the higher the points awarded for its completion.
Once a recipe is finished, to receive points for it and start another recipe, the rewarded food must be fed to the Clan Dragon. Feeding the Clan Dragon is done by dragging the food to the Dragon's mouth, which moves it forward in The Great Dragon Race.
