We're racing and raising funds for Breast Cancer Research. Normally, "pinks" means pink slips when it comes to racing, but for this event, it's the color of all the cars! Every car racing must be pink in color. Customs or stock. Tournament will start on October 4th and run for four weeks, throughout the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month).

Rules & restrictions

  • Stock and modified entries allowed
  • 70g maximum weight
  • 3.25in. long x 2in. tall x 1.25in. wide
  • Limit 8 entries per household
  • Any wheels/axle types allowed. Tubes: 0k
  • Dry lube only
  • All entries must be pink in color.
  • All entries must be accompanied by a $5.00 donation (per car). All proceeds will go to Susan G. Komen (for breast cancer research).
  • Any Brand is allowed.  Any casting allowed, so long as it fits on the track.

Race format and scoring

This will be a round-robin tournament in the first round. Subsequent rounds will be head-to-head. Each heat of later rounds will be best-two-out-of-three.

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.

Stocks and Mods will be run as two separate categories.

For those who would like to participate without sending in a car, we have a collection of 10 cars (8 stock, 2 mods) that are in want of drivers. A $5.00 donation will secure status as driver of one of those cars.

Penalties/DNF

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 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.

Prizes

Winner: Trophy and Bragging Rights

Everyone else: Good feelings for having made the world a better place.

I found a Pink car in my collection, so Peter Bee is in!


  • That's tremendous! — Kit_Kayem
  • Peter Bee Racing is going to focus on Orange Track racing until I learn how to make these cars faster, so I won't be racing on the Fat Track. Good luck on your event! — Peter_Bee
