When Middle C commentated the Mustang vs Camaro tournament, the agreement was we would do an all British manufacturer field for his pay. So let's see who can build the best car from across the pond.

Rules & restrictions

  • Stock and modified entries allowed
  • 55g maximum weight
  • 3.25in. long x 2in. tall x 1.25in. wide
  • Limit 1 entries per household
  • Retail axles and wheels only. FTE/NPA axles allowed.
  • Dry and liquid lube allowed
  • The cars have to be a British make and model. To be more specific, here is a list of approved manufactures. Aston Martin, Mini, Bentley, Land Rover, McLaren, MG Motor, Morgan, Lotus, Vauxhall, AC cars, Grinnall, Lagonda, Lister, Jaguar, TVR And Rolls-Royce. There are a few other smaller companies. Write me if you have any of the ones not listed. This will be a 32 car field.
  • No lude or graphic stickers.
  • Windows may be tinted.
  • No sloppy paint jobs. Cars can not be Blue or have any shade of blue on them as it effects the chroma key background. 

Dates & deadlines

All entries must be received by the host before Wednesday, 5/1/2024. Qualifying will begin after all cars have been recieved. Races will be posted on our channel and cars that are knocked out will be returned after their video has been posted. 

How to enter

Contact the tournament host to get the shipping address for entry.

Include at least $8.00 for shipping in the U.S. or supply a return label for return shipping if you want your entries back. 

You must Include a Race Entry ID slip with your entry including drivers' name. 

Track

Racing will be on the Smokey Mountain Speedway. View track profile and specs

Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination, 32 car field tournament. It will be a points style format. The car with the most points after 8 laps will move on. Cars will alternate lanes between each race.

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

Bracket seeding will be by qualifying positions.

Penalties/DNF

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, we will contact to see if you would like us to try and do small repairs. If not, they will forfiet the round and may have an alternate to take it's place.

Prizes

To be determined.
