You’ve heard of the 24 Hours of Le Mans where the worlds fastest racecars compete for 24 hours to see who can go the farthest the fastest.
Well, for April Fools Day, we are going to race our slowest cars! The slowest car to make it across the finish line wins! So break out the rubber tires forget the graphite, and put those cars on a diet! But don’t make them too slow or they may not reach the finish line and receive a DNF (Did Not Finish) for their time!
NOTE: The first180 turn to the right is the hardest point to get past. Low speed speed cars have difficulty making it around that turn.

Race format and scoring
Each car will have 3 attempts to cross the finish line with the slowest time.
All cars will start and run in the same side of the starting gate and first section of track.
The car that posts the slowest time will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.
Bracket seeding will be random.
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 runs. 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.
To be determined.
