I'll be using a Hotwheels 6 lane drag strip but only using lanes 1 and 3 as they are my most consistant. I'll be using 2 lanes max about 15-18 feet long.
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. It will be a 2 out of 3 race. If it is a close race, it will then be 1st to 3. Cars will alternate lanes between each race. Once it gets to the quarter finals, it will be the first to three wins to proceed on the bracket.
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. I will write names and put them in a bucket and draw names out randomly.
Cars are given a grace of 1g over the 79 gram stated weight limit to account for variance in scales. No more than 80.99 grams.
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.
Premium hotwheel and a gift card and a surprise gift at the end.
