Race format and scoring

This tournament will have a group stage (round-robin, groups of four). Top car from each group-- and however many wild cards are needed to flesh out a standard 16 or 32 car bracket-- will advance. Subsequent (bracket) rounds will be head-to-head. Each race within the bracket will require two lap victories to continue on.

The car that wins the final race will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.

Penalties/DNF

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

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

Winner: Trophy and Bragging Rights

Everyone else: Good feelings for having made the world a better place.

Going to start working on my entries for this today, probably get them out early next week.  Recently found several loose HW all-metal stock cars in good condition at my local vintage store, just need a little TLC and some wheel swaps, and they should be some good racers.  Planning on sending a couple of those, and then a couple modded Stocker models I've been eyeing for tuning.  Thanks for hosting!


We've got our first car in!  It's from Uncle Elvis, and it's already done pretty well at Psychedelic Speedway, because it was one of the Pinks cars back in the fall!  Welcome back, Give A Hoot!

Today is one month until the deadline for cars to be here in Seattle.

My stock car should be there Monday. You will have to let me know the pay pal info so I can get that part taken care.

Here we go, our first race! These cars and a check for the cause are en route.

We are so new that we are eager to be trounced by all ye titans of the sport (but our #33 has some real determination though).

Proud to be aboard.

Funky Mother Chickin Racin sent in this beauty. We are excited to be a part of the race.


Please send me a personal message if I'm still awaiting your car(s).  There are only two days until the deadline, and I want to make sure I have everyone accounted for.

Thanks!
