Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament.

This is a timed event. Not Brackets.
Two cars will race; one oss in each lane and times recorded.
Top 16 times move on to Round 2.
8 to Round 3.
4 to Round 2.
2 to Finals.
Finals are the same one pass each lane; top time wins.

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.


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 it is inelligible to race.
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.
