Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket only when it wins two races in a row. Cars will alternate lanes between each race.

The car that wins the final race will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.

Bracket seeding will be random.

Penalties/DNF

If a car fails to meet any of the restrictions listed above, the car will not qualify for victory. Offending cars will still race. Finish position and any prize will go to the runner-up in the case of the penalty car winning.

Cars that fail to run or fit on the track, or that happen to break during racing, will forfeit their matches. Cars that arrive broken will attempt to be minimally repaired before the racing begins. Cars that break during racing will not be repaired or replaced.


Discussion

What brands make a Fiat 127?  I find that Majorette made one from 1972-1978.  Any others?


  • I know Majorette, Polistil, Guisval (you see I mostly know 'vintage' casts!) and maybe others — Teypteyp
  • And if you 3D print your own I'll accept it! — Teypteyp
