  • Cars must have 3 or 4 wheels, each no greater than 15cm in diameter, with their overall length shall be no longer than the rocker cover and width no greater than 30cm.
  • Downforce wings, spoilers, air dams, etc. are all permitted.
  • Sponsorship logos, racing stickers and car names are all encouraged.
  • Racing will run in heats of 2 cars each. The first car to have its front wheels cross the finish line at least 2 out of 3 times shall be declared the winner. If neither car makes it to the finish line the closest to finish will take the win. Winning cars will advance to the next round until all are eliminated – except one champion! (The Judges’ decision is final)
  • Entrants wishing to wear racing clothes, helmets, etc., do so at their own risk of being laughed at.
