THE COURSE OF THE COMPETITION
STAGE I – QUALIFICATIONS
- Before participating in the qualification, each participant must:
- register at the place designated by the organizer.
- pick up stickers and tires and place them properly: stickers on the body in accordance with the Organizer’s guidelines and tires on rims in the model.
- show the model for inspection if it meets the technical requirements.
- If the above requirements are met, the competitor may enter the competition.
- The object of the competition is to complete the sequence of turns with the highest score by the panel of judges.
- During the qualifying competition there will be 3 sessions consisting of:
- Free training in groups according to the division and time communicated to competitors during breifing.
- A scoring run, the number of scoring runs will be determined by the judges at the briefing. scoring runs of a given competitor shall not be consecutive.
- Start competition, the order of runs, the line of passage and changes in the organization of the competition are determined by the official announcements and mandatory breifing.
- The signal to start is given by the judge or a designated person (the signal may come from an electronic device). Failure to comply with these signals may result in disqualification of the competitor.
- Each competitor has the right to participate in the qualification in accordance with the guidelines provided during the briefing and the Competition Regulations.
- The event organizer may order a greater or lesser number of journeys. The judges’ marks for the best run determine the order of places in the classification of the qualifying runs.
- For reasons such as the number of participants or the time frame of the event, the organizer reserves the right to modify the qualifications in order to speed up the competition. All changes will be explained during the mandatory briefing.
- The competitor joining the qualification and pairs riding takes responsibility for the technical preparation of the model. If the model breaks down during the ride, the competitor is disqualified.
5 minutes for service in case of failure before the scheduled start
- Single runs are judged by a panel of judges.
- Scoring points (so-called Clipping Points and / or / and Zones) should be located at a few turns of the track. CP and Zones are decided by a panel of judges at a briefing.
- Points are awarded for keeping track, Clipping Points, Zones, dynamics, driving smoothness, angles and show.
- Important criteria on which the judges will base their assessment will be the drift line chosen by the competitor in relation to the one set at the briefing, speed of the ride and possible straightening during the drift.
- Points will not be awarded for straight passage through CP and Zones (not drifting).
- Each entry onto the „island” outside the track or hitting the board, resulting in a change of the model’s position, is associated with deduction of points by the judges.
STAGE II – TRAVEL IN PAIRS
- The runs of the final 32 or 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final are held in pairs.
- Pairs are matched as follows: 1:32, 2: 31 or 1:16, 2:15, etc.
- The winner of each pair proceeds to further games.
- Each pair of players, at each stage of the competition, make two point runs. In two (scored) runs, each driver „chases” and once „runs away”.
- The place in the preliminaries decides about the order in which to run. The rider with the highest position rides first. The test run takes place in the same order as the first scoring run.
- The chasing vehicle is positioned within the distance from the runaway, defined by the starting lines. The players start at the referee’s signal. The chasing competitor cannot pass the runner on the run-up straight, this is considered a false start and results in a score of 10: 0 in favor of the runner.
- If, during the pairs run, the chasing competitor’s vehicle „misses”, the runner who runs away, despite winning, is obliged to complete the run (completing the run is not scored anymore). Similarly, in the case of a fleeing vehicle, the chasing vehicle (unless the spin has blocked the possibility of further driving) must reach the finish line.
- After completing the run, both competitors stop the vehicles and wait for the scoring. Only after the result is announced, do the competitors change their order on the starting lines and start the next heat at the referee’s signal.
- Each lap is scored for an advantage (eg 9: 1; 7: 3; 6: 4) or balance (5: 5). After completing 2 laps, the competitor whose advantage in scored runs is greater passes to the next round. Balance can only occur in a maximum of two pairwise battles with reordering. If another equilibrium occurs, the players stand up to the so-called Sudden death.
- „Sudden death”. The first duel is started by the competitor who was higher in the qualification. Both riders make 3 continuous laps. The leader tries to drive the model flawlessly, without spins, hitting the boards and other adventures, not getting overtaken and keeping the perfect drift line. Each of his mistakes results in an automatic loss. A perfect run gives victory to the leader. The chasing car is to try to put pressure on the chased one to make a mistake by being close behind him, but avoiding contact. Clean and successful overtaking (while drifting) results in a victory for the chaser. Hitting the escaping person by the chaser results in the loss of the latter. The first player to make a mistake automatically loses.
EVALUATION CRITERIA FOR COUPLE BATTLE (TSUISO)
- The judges during the tsuiso will pay attention to:
- drift lines marked by stickers on the track of both models.
- drift continuity – no straightening (judges will pay attention to the reactions of the wheels related to the gyro operation in the case of RWD runs)
- smoothness, smooth running.
- distances (from the other vehicle and obstacles)
- spontaneity, bravado of the ride (show)
- The judges judge each lap individually and the sum of their marks is the final result.
- Both competitors should keep the track indicated in qualification. ie by trying to „pass” all points in qualifying runs … Clipping Points, Zones and points marked on the track marking the correct line of the route.
- The main task of the chaser is to follow the leader, at a short distance, to follow the line of the elimination runs. He has to avoid contact with the teacher and making his mistakes.
- The judges individually consider each race according to the above-mentioned criteria.
- Overtaking during tsuiso is allowed, but only during drifting, possibly if the refugee „misses”, hits the board or goes out of the way.
- Contact between the vehicles and track elements is allowed as long as the impact does not cause the line to change.
- The evaluation criteria may differ slightly depending on the event and judges. One judge will require the competitors to have a long angle and another to be more speedy. The referees will arrange a mandatory match of the players before the BATTLE IN PAIRS to determine what they expect from them.
