Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket only when it wins two races in a row. Cars will alternate lanes between each race.

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

Bracket seeding will be random.

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

TBD

Which track is it exactly? Different types of track could determine my entries?


  • It is both crash racers set and fat track, it starts off as a 2 lane, then opens up to a 3 lane. — bbwolf67

Does the desert rally series count?


  • Yep, pikes peak as well. If you question if a car is worthy or not, check the cars history to see if it was ever in a rally. I will be checking all entries to make sure. — bbwolf67

You've got to know that I'll be sending a 1970 Ford Escort RS 1600.  I'll try to make it two, but I'm not sure I can get both built with all I'm up to this next month.

Clarification: Are stocks and mods racing against each other?


  • No, each class will race separately. We can have the top of each in a head to head if people want it. — bbwolf67

Is this race canceled? If so, go ahead and delete the post. If it's just postponed, change the race date to something tentative in the future for now. Thanks.
