This is my first mail-in tournament on my new 'Moonshine Dragstrip' orange continuous track, so I'm keeping it simple. I'm inviting all of my closest diecast friends to enter and compete against the best builders in the hobby today. Join us, shall you? (Maybe we'll get to 67 entries???!!!)

The casting I've chosen for this inaugural event will be the Hot Wheels '67 Camaro. Why? Because it's my favorite Hot Wheels casting!

We will be using the hardtop version only, but it can be the original metal on metal version, or one of many plastic/metal or metal/plastic variations that have came out since.



No convertibles, No other brand casting. Hot Wheels Only!

Rules & restrictions

  • Limited to Hot Wheels '67 Camaro' Modified entries only!
  • Custom paint, decals and/or 'Race car number' of your choice encouraged but not required. (There will be a 'Best in Show' competition & separate prize for the winner, so make them look sharp!)
  • 67g maximum weight NO GRACE!
  • 3.25in. long x 2in. tall x 1.25in. wide
  • Limit 1 entries per household
  • Wheel swaps allowed, but retail axles must be used with BLACK WHEELS ONLY!!! FTE/NPA axles allowed.
  • Must keep same size wheels as original casting front and rear
  • Any lube
  • No Bearings, No Tubes, Standard Stock Axels Only
  • No wheel cutting or coning. Sanding surface to true wheels okay.
  • No stretching, No body filling, No fender hogging
  • No weights outside of the casting.
  • Nothing may be added to the body or front of the car to extend or enhance it's timer beam-breaking capability.
  • Hood opening castings may glue hood shut to avoid rattle.

Track

Racing will be on the Moonshine Dragstrip. View track profile and specs

Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination random bracket style tournament. The car with the best time for that round will move on in the bracket. Cars will alternate lanes between each race round, and a 'Slanman Customs' timing system will be used to determine winner each race.

The car that wins the final race using the above race format with the fastest time will be declared the winner, and the runner up will claim second place. There will be a race-off between the runners up from both sides of the bracket to determine third place.. Race host has final decision in all races.

Bracket seeding will be random.

Penalties/DNF

Cars will be given NO GRACE over the stated weight limit of 67g, so don't push your luck too much! I have two scales, and your entry must weigh 67 grams OR LESS on both of them!

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.

Prizes

There will be a 'Best in Show' competition with a prize for the winner, as well as a trophy for first place, and prizes for second and third places. (T.B.T.)
