ROCKER COVER RACE RULES

What is it? — It’s a fun event for Young kids & Old kids — Anyone can enter — all you need is a rocker cover off an engine, some wheels and lots of imagination — have a go - and join the fun!!!


THE COURSE
Consists of a launch incline 2.4 metres long with two lanes 450mm wide, then a level run of 6 metres with two lanes 900mm wide.
                                                                   

THE RACES
Races are heats of two cars each. The cars are launched with the fronts on the starting retainer. The first car to have its front cross the finish line is the winner. If neither car makes it to the finish line, the car going the furthest in its lane wins.
If the wheels of a car should touch the lane markers or cross over the lane marker the car shall be disqualified. The competing car immediately becomes the winner.
Winning cars will advance to the next round until all are eliminated except one car.
The judge’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into, the judge shall be provided with body guards and whisked away at the end of the race.
