This will be a timed event. Each car will get one run down each lane with the fastest time being recorded. Any tiebreakers will go off the next best time. From the final 4 on the remaining cars will get 2 runs down each lane with the fastest time being recorded.
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 in the first round. After that they will be parked and will not continue the race.
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.
Winner will receive a trophy. Will have a few extras thrown in for the rest of the top 4.
