Prizes

Trophy and the Associated Glory of a Victory on Bootleg Run

Track

Races will be run on the Bootleg Run track.

Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket only when it wins two races in a row. Cars will alternate lanes between each race.

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

Bracket seeding will be random but will try to avoid having an entrant race themselves, especially in the first round. If the cars are tied 4 to 4 after 8 races a coin will be flipped to decide the lane choice and the winner of the 9th race will move on.

Penalties/DNF

Cars are given a grace of 2g 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 tournament prizes. Offending cars will still race. Prize will go to the runner-up in the case of 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 repaired before the tournament. Cars that break during the tournament will not be repaired or replaced.

We love all our Tracks here at the LoS Racing Grounds...but a Bootleg Run race is always a little something extra around here...we wanted Bootleg Run to be totally dialed in before going Green with this one...and after the conclusion of the Dixie Gran Prix 2, we feel like Bootleg Run has arrived as one of the premier tracks in the Diecast Racing Community.
