Competition Rules

The exact structure of the event is dependent on the number of teams taking part, but the objective will be to maximize the number of runs for every cart. 

A rough outline for the competition is;

Event Timetable (Provisional)

Friday 13th July

  • 12.00 – 16.00: Team registration and Safety Inspection
  • 17.00: Team and Marshals' Briefing
  • 18.00– 22.30: Individual Practice Runs

Saturday 14th July

  • 17.00: Team and Marshals' Briefing
  • 18.00 – 22.30: Elimination Heats and Finals, followed by Prize Ceremony

Friday: 3 or more individual untimed practice runs each. Speeds measured at the speed trap 450m below the start  used for group seeding. Permanent yellow flag applies - no overtaking.

Saturday: Teams split into groups of up to 4 carts, using the previous day's speed gun data for seeding. Each group will race head to head, with the winning 2 carts in each group going through into the next round. Consolation heats will be run for eliminated teams so every team will have the same number of runs and will get an overall placing.

The complete rule set for the competition can be found on the download page.

Notwithstanding any unforseen problems, every team should get at least 7 runs in total (3 on Friday and 4 on Saturday).
