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

Cars are given a grace of 1g over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales.

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

TBD

Hey!

I am about to ship five cars over for the second event. If they get there in time, and you need some more entries you can run them in this event as well.


So I've had a few things pop up in life so I'm probably going to have to work on and post the race a little later than expected this will most likely happen with my second race too I'm hoping that the fast saga race shouldn't be affected, so no rush with sending in cars take your time but please send me a dm after you have sent any cars in so I can keep an eye out for them thank you for understanding and sorry if I have caused any problems
