Overview

The Contender Series is an on-going Driver Based League that is held on WeRaceDiecast's Clutch Mountain. The League will have 1 champion and 15 ranked drivers. An initial Tournament will be ran to crown the initial champion as well as the top 15 ranked drivers. The Drivers for this initial tournament have already been selected (See Below). Future Drivers will have the opportunity to enter the league as well via an Entry Race; BUT they will have to win an Entry Race in order to enter the league as an unranked driver.

Note:  This is a new series and is in the planning phase. As things change this page will update. Any questions or concerns feel free to comment or private message us. If something doesn't make sense, let us know and we will try to work it out.

Driver Based

One of the destinguishing features is this series is DRIVER-BASED, not CAR-BASED. Every time a group of drivers is selected to be in a race, they will have to build a NEW car to compete in a theme styled race. Then, based on how each driver performs in a given race will effect their ranking. 

Example: We may run a 4 driver race that involves the top 4 ranked Drivers (4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st overall ranked). Based on each Drivers performances will effect what their ranking is after the race is conducted.

Drivers will be selected based on availabilty, matchups, and current ranking. Time will tell how often races will be ran, but drivers will need to be willing and ready when they are called on to race; if they are unavailable they could potentially lose points as a result; this all depends on the situation.

Types of Races

Standard races will be 4 Driver/Car events. We will also run 6 and 8 Driver/Car events as well. Additionally, the reigning champ will have to defend his title via 1v1 Matchups from time to time.

While things are still in the initial planning phases, we are looking at running an annual Open event that would feature 16 NEW Drivers and give them a chance to join the league. 

Lastly is the Entry Race. It will be a 4 Driver/Car event where the winner will get Entry into the series as an Unranked Driver. 

Theme Styled Races

With the exception of the initial tournament, all races in the Contender Series will be Theme based. The themes will change each race, but one might be Vans, Trucks, Convertibles, Modern Ford Cars, Fast and Furious, JDM, American Muscle, Super Cars, etc. 

The point of the themes is to race common cars against each other that feel like they are supposed to race against each other. 

Schedule

The schedule is a work in progress. It is not meant to be a weekly racing event. As we get the series started, it will be raced as we get the cars in, and setup lineups. As the series progresses and the channel grows, things may change. So if you are a driver, you will not be expected to send in NEW cars every other week/monthly. There will be some sort of rotation that gives everyone the chance to compete. Some may compete more than others; depends on availability, rivals, good matchups and the current rankings. But if you are interested in joining the league at some point, just be aware that there will be a schedule and missing a race could affect your rankings (again will be a case by case basis).

Scoring System

The scoring system won't be public, but only the top 15 will be publically ranked. All drivers will be ranked behind the scenes, and determining how drivers move up and down the rankings will be decided by performances.

Prizes

There are no official prizes currently. The channel is still small and we can't afford anything at this moment. BUT in the future, we want to do something. If the channel takes off and the series does well, we would like to one day to t-shirts for every competitor, shirts for the champion, shirts for big tournament winners, and other things. Only time will tell how well this goes, but we have high hopes for it!


Questions

This is going to be very cool. Hopefully Down Squad Racing can work a way into it.

great track


  • Thank you! Its a lot of fun and can't wait to get it ad more features — WeRaceDiecast

Very cool! Hoping to jump in!


Great track, my only criticism is it seems the same people are always racing and it's difficult to get in. Maybe you have to be on FB to be more involved. I'm not sure.


  • I hear ya, a lot of the channel type community is on Facebook. but its still such a small margin of actual viewers, and then others that are not associated with YouTube at all. This is definitely similar to some other peoples stuff, but its a spin on it that I be been wanting to do for a long time. for FB, I use that for my group. For this, communication through messenger because its quick and easy coms. But ya man, if you ever want to throw down, or want to wait and see how it all turns out. Send me a message anytime. — WeRaceDiecast
  • It’s probably more my problem than yours. I don’t use FB and if something gets too complicated I usually steer away from it but keep doing your thing. You have a good thing going it seems. — BlueLineRacing
  • Thanks BlueLineRacing! Hopefully in video it will all become clear, and if it doesn't please comment with feedback (if you are around lol). Thanks again my friend! — WeRaceDiecast
