Welcome to 2016 Pro Series GT Classic. This is the second of 6 tournaments that make up the 2016 Redline Derby Pro Series. Entry is open to everyone. You do not have to have entrered a previous Pro Series tournament to qualify. The points earned in this tournament go towards each racer's Pro Series total. At the end of the year, the racer with the most total points in will be crowned champion.
This will be a standard, double-elimination bracket. The car that wins the final, wins this tournament. Points earned only go towards the Pro Series total, they do not determine the winner of this tournament.
The next Pro Series tournament will be held in June.
The GT Classic focuses on GT class cars that racing road courses today. The GT class has a long history that covers a lot of different cars but they are not all represented in this tournament. I have selected a broad list of popular GT cars and manufacturers that should not be hard to find in the Hot Wheels world.

Scoring and Winning
This is a standard, double-elimination bracket. Each match-up will be best 2-out-3, alternating lanes. Seeding will be random as will any byes that are needed. The car that wins the bracket is champ. Points do not determine the winner of this tournament.
Pro Series points are +10 for every win in the main bracket. The tournament winner will receive +20 for the victory. There will be no points awarded for Loser Bracket wins.
Cars will be inspected on arrival and checked for weight and other conditions. Any car that fails inspection will be removed from the tournament and returned to the owner.
Each car is given one do-over if they come off the track during a run. If goes off track a second time, it will forfeit that match.
This tournament will be racing on Chopper's outdoor track in Portland, OR. It is equipped manual starting gate and sensor finish line, both 3DBotMaker models. Track is 17' long with a 4' hill from 2.5' high. You'll note this is a very flexible track so take that into consideration when building.
