Race format and scoring

There will be 3 races on this same track.  Each race will be 5 laps long with a grid of 12 cars run in GRID-6 format.  That is each lap 6 cars are run (P1 - P6, then P7 - P12).  Points are awarded on the final lap, Lap 5.  50 points for 1st, 36 points for 2nd, 30 points for 3rd, 24 points for 4th, 20 points for 5th, 16 points for 6th, 12 points for 7th, 8 points for 8th, 4 points for 9th, 2 point for 10th and 1 point for each car that finishes the race after 10th place. There is a bonus 2 points for getting Pole Position for each of PRO & AM at the start of the race and 1 point for fastest Lap by class during the race (as long as you also finish the race).


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.

Sounds awesome.  That is a tricky casting.  #21 is my lucky number. 

#14 sounds good.  Sounds like a real challenge.  Looking forward to it.
