Exciting days are ahead of WorpeX Racing as we move our track yet again! We leave Philadelphia (although, we're only going like 2 towns over...) for greener pastures but the time to talk about future tracks is not now. There will be one final hoorah here in the city of brotherly love!
Things are going quickly right now. Settlement on the house is the end of next month. I have to be moved out of the apartment by the end of march. So, that means there isn't a whole lot of time to squeeze a race in. I have an interesting idea for that...
This competition will be limited to former Mail-In Mod cars who did not place in the top 3 of its prior mail-in attempts. Make a fast car for Bootleg run which flipped off the track in its first race? This is the perfect chance for it to redeem itself!
You are allowed to make changes to the wheels of the car from its first event. Chassis, Base and Paint must remain the same.

TBA... I've got a Cien, Stingray and Stockar chassis which were former FTE donors. I'll paint one, slap a WorpeX Racing logo on it and throw some feet on it to give to the winner. Oh, and it'll be slow. Real slow. Ain't sending you some fast car, you already won, you don't need another one!

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. Any DNF will be considered a loss on that lane and will not be re-raced.
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.
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.
