This tournament has been postponed until further notice. See details in last post.

This is the third official RLD mail-in tournament. This time we're going over seas with a minimal theme of all-foreign cars. Your entry's casting should be non-American. Are you going to go with a Ferrari? Or how about a heavy Mercedes? Don't forget about those imports from Asia...Nissans, Hondas and Mitsubishi's qualify too!

Deadline for entries is August 1. Tournament will be held after that date.

This tournament will be held on the Redline Derby Racing home track.

How to enter

Make a post to this thread with your intentions, or just mail your cars to the address below before August 1.

Please include an ID card with your entry so we can be sure your car gets returned and labeled properly

Please include $2 with your entry if you want your car returned. If you do not want your entries returned, they will be added to the prize winnings.

Send entries to:

Scoring and Winning

This will be a standard single elimination tournament with entries running best 2-of-3 in each match-up with alternating lanes. No points or scoring. The car that goes until the end wins.


Entries will be checked for weight and drilled rivets. If your entry is overweight by more than 3-grams or has no signs of drilling, it will be disqualified and removed from the tournament. Dimensions will not be checked prior to racing, but be aware that if your entry doesn't fit the start, finish or track that it will have an affect on performance.

    Moved this tournament up to August 1 for entry deadline. I've decided to make the 1st of the month the deadline for all monthly RLD tournaments. Just keeps it easy to remember and manage.

    The actual race will take place after that date. This gives me time to photograph, preview, etc.

    I have one car almost ready....

    Unless there is massive unrest, I'm postponing this tournament. I'm finding the combination of monthly tournaments and web site management to be a little more than I expected. Needed to clear something out to get some other work done.

    The July and September tournaments are still on the books and will go on as advertised.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.
