Race format and scoring

This will be a 16 car tournament. Qualifying will determine the top 16 cars. 4 groups of 4. Each group will have 4 races, all cars rotate clockwise one spot so that each car has an equal opportunity in every position. if there’s a tie in points for cars who will transfer to next round, or to determine the tournament winner, respective cars will go to a best of 3 head to head scenario by which the winner receives an additional point.

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

UPDATE: Bracket seeding will be determined by qualifying results. Qualifying will consist of 2 laps per car. Fastest time will be counted.


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 the tournament.

Cars that fail to run or fit on the track, or that happen to break during qualifying/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.

  • What if the wheel are bent before you take it apart. Can't replace those with simler wheels? simler — PuffsRacing
  • Out of fairness, they have to be the exact same as the stock wheels/axels. In the future, I’ll be hosting a F1 tournament that’ll be open to mods. But, for this stock tournament, the only thing that can be changed (and encouraged!) is livery design. Best of luck! — BossChampionshipRacing

I would love to participate in this!

#53 I will take a spot... but I have a question regarding wheel swaps... uh... why not? And seeing how the castings you are after aren't really readily available...can I put new/same style wheels onto the car as the ones ive got have wonky axels

  • This tournament is geared toward keeping the cars extremely fair. Hence the rule for no wheel swaps. You can find the gp 2009 casting on eBay for a reasonable price. It’s a unique tournament and I’d like to keep it that way out of fairness to everyone involved! Thanks! — BossChampionshipRacing
  • And also, I’m planning to have other tournaments that’ll be open to modifying. So, stay tuned for that! — BossChampionshipRacing
  • Ok…I get the fairness angle…but then my next question would be in regards to the dry lube…some builders remove the wheels and axels to polish and lube…is that allowed? Just trying to get clarification — Crazy_Canuck
  • If it’s only dry lube, then you’re good to go. — BossChampionshipRacing
  • I appreciate your patience with me…cheers — Crazy_Canuck
  • no worries! — BossChampionshipRacing
  • How will you be able to polish wheels and axles without taking the car apart which is not allowed??? — Bavarian_Diecast_Racing
  • Per the rules for the tournament, you’re allowed to take it apart to customize the paint. You can also dry lube as well. Hope that answers your question! — BossChampionshipRacing

Looking forward to this.  Please count me in.  #38 - Speedball Herman

Can you glue your axles or do they have to be loose?

Would the HW-4-Trac qualify for the race? Its the only F1 style car I have i my collection as of now.

  • Unfortunately, not allowed for this tournament. However, there will be other tournaments that'll be open to other models. Stay in touch! — BossChampionshipRacing
