This was race has been postponed indefinitely due to a flooded basement at RLD HQ.
Holy FTE, Batman! There is no shortage of Batmobile castings out in the world. You have some in your collection and there are even plenty on the pegs if you're fresh out. Find yourself one of the many variations of the Dark Knight's supercar and send it in to find out which version is up to the task of saving Gotham.
This is a stock-only race.
BTW, the 1989 Batmobile is the best one, just sayin'

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.
Limited entry format: Should the entry count be 10 or less, we'll use a round robin format instead of an elimination bracket.
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 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.
