In the spirit of our three favorite European sports car makes, we will be hosting a "Euro Cup" series. Each features the respective car makes: Ferrari, Lamborghini & Porsche. This is a three-part modified diecast tournament with three separate race events. Ferrari is the first event in the series and is dedicated to Ferrari castings only. Racing will be hosted on the LYDC YouTube channel. Live Young Die-Cast

We are accepting 32 entries total. If we don't fill the roster or need cars and drivers, the roster will be changed to accomodate interest and/or in-house modified cars might be available for driver selection as needed on a later date.

Please read all rules and format carefully. Comment in the thread to enter and PLEASE include the following info: Team name / Driver Name & Unique Car # (first come, first serve).

NEW INFO: If you know for certain that you would like to participate in all 3 Euro Cup events and you are located outside of the continental US, please message me and we can probably get you set up to send all 3 cars as a boxed set for the whole series of events. DO NOT SEND 3 cars unless we have discussed this privately. I don't want to manage 96 cars at once... LOL!

Race format and scoring

This will be a "field-elimination" style tournament. At the end of the group rounds we will take the top 16 driver scores to advance into the Semi-Finals. All drivers with a tied score that equals that of other drivers for the last spots at the bottom of the pack will race in sudden death head to head races to settle tie-breakers and earn spots in the sweet 16 that advance.

We will run 8 groups of 4-cars: Cars will rotate lane positions between each of the laps.

The car that wins the final race of the this series will be declared the winner and will be entered in the Euro Cup Finale to race against the winner of the Lamborghini and Porsche events that will follow this Ferrari series to kick things off.

Race host has final decision in all races.

Bracket seeding will be random. Points are NOT cumulative between rounds or in the 3-part series overall. In later rounds within each series, the cars might be seeded based upon lap times or scores. This is TBD.

Lap scores are:
1st: 5pts
2nd: 3pts
3rd: 2pts
4th: 1pt.  DNF: 0pts

To earn points, a wheel or body part of the car must be making physical contact with the flat track surface and be over the checkered area / finish line. Perched on the side rail with no track surface contact by the car will be considered off-track and scored as a DNF. Bouncing backward behind the line after crossing the line with road contact will NOT be a DNF unless the car comes to a stop off of the track with no contact to the flat track surface.

Penalties/Issues/Changes

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, the car will not qualify to race. However we will work with you fully to resolve any issues and keep you in it.

Cars that fail to run or fit on the track, or that happen to break during racing, will be attempted to be repaired. We will work and communicate with you. Cars that arrive broken will attempt to be repaired before the racing begins. Please keep in mind that a lack of time could prevent certain repairs or chnages to get you going.

Prizes

The winner of each series as well as the grand finale will receive a championship billboard with a custom graphic installed on the Deep Eddy Raceway. You will also receive a prize package of new cars. If we have any cars that are not being returned to the builder, they will be given to the winners of each series.
