Race format and scoring
This Series will be 8 Races...race 1 will be on Quest Speedway and race 8 on Tobacco Road...we need 6 more tracks/ host...let me know in the thread below...this will be a cumulative points series like our Summer Series where both cars add to the team's total points over the 8 races.
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.
In the event of the of the cars being tied 4 to 4 after 8 races...host will flip a coin for the 9th race to determine if the lanes stay the same or the cars switch lanes...Winner of the 9th aka Tie-Breaker race moves on in the 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 the tournament or prizes.
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.
