Race format and scoring
This will be a 16 car tournament. Qualifying will determine the top 16 cars. 4 groups of 4. Each group will have 4 races, all cars rotate clockwise one spot so that each car has an equal opportunity in every position. if there’s a tie in points for cars who will transfer to next round, or to determine the tournament winner, respective cars will go to a best of 3 head to head scenario by which the winner receives an additional point.
The car that wins the final race in the final round will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.
Bracket seeding will be random.
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 the tournament.
Cars that fail to run or fit on the track, or that happen to break during qualifying/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.
