Bracket Road Race
A Chance for Glory
Bracket Road Race is a handicap designed race that gives ALL participants a chance to win. The weaker drivers/cars start with a time advantage over the faster drivers/cars. Anyone not running consistent laps will quickly be eliminated out of the back of the pursuit. Watch out for the FAST guys, they'll be looking to catch you, but they can’t if you keep up your speed. You can win by being the best bracket racer!
The Bracket Road race is (5) laps. The slower drivers always start in the front of the Race with the slowest in 1st, the next quickest in 2nd and so on. The most consistent driver wins by finishing closest to their dial-in time. (We will help you get your First Bracket Dial-in-Time.) Maximum slowest to fastest time in any feature will be one minute. This means that we will have spacing between when each car leaves the start line. Racers will be spaced based on the 6-lap dial-in time difference but run 5 laps to help keep traffic flowing fast. You should never be passed in the Race if you run reasonably close to your dial-in time, which means you have been consistent. When each race is finished we will add up each participants 5 lap times to decide who was the most consistent. The more you run this event the more addicted you will become. It’s a ton of fun and you will likely keep slightly changing your dial-in time to try and win.
Passing will be allowed if needed. Slower drivers being overtaken will do a point by on their driver’s side at the soonest safe opportunity and not be allowed to block faster vehicles. Keep in mind if everyone is driving consistent laps we should hardly ever have any passing. You may not hold up traffic to win during any lap. If you exceed your total qualifying time and actually run too fast you will not be a winner. No timing or electronic systems will be allowed in your car (other than our transponders) as drivers must rely on their driving skills to not go too fast in any given race.
Red Car qualifying time is 2:00 and Blue Car is 2:05. In the Race the Blue car will get a 5 second per lap head start. We will run 5 Lap races and do the time spacing based on 6 laps so in theory no car will ever get passed in the race. The Blue car should pass the finish line 5 seconds ahead of the red car. Again the Blue car gets a 30-second head start, not 25 seconds, and should still be ahead of the 2nd starting car by 5 seconds at the finish line.
