Starting in 2016 there will be an on-going series of tournaments dubbed the Redline Derby Pro Series.
There will be a mail-in tournament every other month starting in February 2016. All mods, all the time. See the schedule below for themes and then look for official posts as each month draws near.
The tournaments themselves will be single-host, double-elimination tournaments; no travelling. Tracks will vary too. I am looking for hosts for several of the dates, so please post or PM if you're interested.
Racers will accumulate points as the series goes on with a champion crowned in December. That person will be the 2016 Redline Derby Pro Champion and will receive a mantle trophy. There will be prizes for each individual tournament as well.
Hopefully a preset schedule will give everyone plenty of time to plan and build their cars. Specific dates are yet to be determined and will be dependent on host availability. Ideally, I'd like to see tournaments happen near the end of each month so everyone has plenty of time to build while also entering other tournaments.
- February (OH) - Build your best, anything goes
- April (OR) - GT Classic (Porsches, Vipers, BMWs, Audi, etc)
- June (WV) - Truck-O-Rama III (trucks, wagons, vans)
- August (OH) - Hot Rod Jamboree (pre-1960 models)
- October (MT) - Mad Max Monsters (3-car frankenbuilds)
- December (OH) - Fantasy Fallout (non-real world models)
*These events will be on the RLD home track in Ohio, other months are open call for hosts.
I think this is a good range of themes to keep everyone on their toes, but they are subject to change if something better comes up. It is then also recommended that we don't use these themes outside of the Pro Series, no need to repeat within the same calendar year.
So there you go...start scouting your builds and do those test runs. The first tournament in Feb is a known track so you can do your research accordingly. I'll be posting official threads for each of these are their dates near.
