Hey race fans! The track's tweaked, the weather's fine, it's time for another tournament on the most dangerous track in the PNW, it's time for the Summer Round Robin!
If you haven't seen the course, it's a rally style course that runs outdoors, straight through our lush garden bed. There's plenty of opportunities for racing, passing, crashing, and totally destroying your car! Only the brave need apply.

Race format and scoring
There will be 2 qualification runs, once in each lane for each car to determine seed position. Following will be a Round Robin tournament for the16 top qualifying cars. Every car will face every other car one time in a two-up battle. Each battle will consist of 4 runs, 2 runs in each lane.
There are 8 checkpoints along the course, a single point will be awarded to the first car to fully pass each checkpoint during each run. All points will accumulate to the end of the Round Robin where the top 4 points holders will battle it out in a Four-Up race for the Championship.
Cars must weigh between 40-75 grams. Cars are given a grace of +/-1.5gr over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales.
All cars must resemble a real car, at least vaguely. Ratical Racer is fine. Grass Chomper, or Speed Spider not so much. Cars must be predominantly a bright color to assist in search and rescue in the garden bed.
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 attempt to be repaired or replaced.
Keep in mind this is an outdoor track; expect your entry to get wet, dirty, muddy, or to be smashed from height into rocky obstacles. It's the most dangerous track in the PNW!
Bragging rights to all who survive! Though it hasn't been planned, every champion thus far has been awarded at least one unopened 1:64 scale diecast car to commemorate the honor.
