Race format and scoring
Group seeding will be decided by a series of head to head run-offs.
Cars will run in groups of 4, earning points depending on lap position (1st = 4, 2nd = 3, 3rd = 2, 4th = 1, DNF* = 0)
Top 2 cars in points from each group advance to the next round.
*DNF means departed track or not on all 4 wheels while completely on track.
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.
Homemade trophy for the winner.
