Small Trucks Tournament
This is a mail in tournament featuring 4 castings of small trucks:
- Mazda Repu

- 91 Syclone
- Volkswagon Caddy
The trucks entered will race in 4 events on 4 tracks:

This will be your chance to show off your painting skills as this is a custom paint only tournament; no other modifications. And YES you can take the truck apart to paint it.
For international racers who are unable to mail in cars, there will be an opportunity to sign up as a driver for one of WeRaceDiecast custom trucks. This will be a random drawing and will take place in the WeRaceDiecast Facebook Group early December.
Update: We did 8 driver sign ups last night ( 9 November) We will have more sign ups for international soon and we have begun a waiting list. So get over to WeRaceDiecast Facebook Group if you are interested and want to put your name down. Remember the sign ups are for international only who are unable to send in a car do to high costs of shipping.!

Race format and scoring
racing format will be as follows:
round 1: all cars will be divided into groups of 6 and raced on the 621 track. Top 3 of each group will advance on to next round. All other cars will be eliminated!
round 2: remaining cars will be raced either 6 or 4 at a time on an Outdoor version of a 621. Again either 2 or 3 will advance on. All others will be eliminated.
round 3: similar process. Trucks will race in either groups of 4-6 and raced on a modified version of the 621 that is known as the "there and back. It combines the crash racers set to the track. A number of cars will be eliminated, leaving a total of 16 cars remaining. These races will be 4 laps and not points based, but position based.
round 4 (final round): the final races will be held on Clutch Mountain. An Under construction custom fat track that uses the crash racers set. This round will be a 16 car points based bracket tournament. 4 car groups , 4 points based races, top 2 move on!
for the cars that get eliminated early on, I'm sorry. But I will be keeping all these cars and they will not be givin out as prizes. They will be used again with same drivers.
May the best truck win!
If a car is modified in any way it will not participate in the event. Just make sure you read the rules.
Prizes have been announced, updated and posted in our Facebook Group: WeRaceDiecast. Top 3 winners will receive a prize!
The winner of the tournament will get the top 8 cars from the tournament. There may be prizes for second or third place depending on the number of entries. Also, if one my own cars wins, I will not get the prize lol, the prize will go to the next place competitor.
RedlineDerby has been gracious enough to sponsor this event and will be donating some RLD swag for the winner of the tournament.
If you are international and you win the tournament, I should be able to ship prize to you as long as shipping costs are not too crazy.
