The layout for each seeding event will be a current layout being used at the drift day occurring that day. The regular event day should be used for practice if you are competing.
The final championship event will feature a layout not used during normal drift days. Drivers will be given a short time period to practice.
There is no traditional single run qualification. See “Driver Selection” section for more details. The 8 drivers selected will be randomly seeded in a traditional top 8 bracket. Each driver will receive a number 1 through 8.
After the top 8 bracket has been decided, drivers will directly go into competition. There will be no practice runs. The layout will be the same as the layout of the regular drift day occurring that day (see “Layout” section for more details). Drivers with the lower number will lead first.
The battles will go as follows, each winner will move on to the top 4
Driver #1 (leading) vs Driver #8 (chase)
Driver #2 (leading) vs Driver #7 (chase)
Driver #3 (leading) vs Driver #6 (chase)
Driver #4 (leading) vs Driver #5 (chase)
The 4 winners from top 8 will battle head to head. The lowest number will lead first.
Winner of #1 v #8 vs Winner of #4 v #5
Winner of #2 v #7 vs Winner of #3 v #6
Winners from the top 4 will battle head to head. The lowest number will lead first. For the seeding rounds, there will be no battle for 3rd place.
For the 9th championship event, a battle for 3rd place between the 3rd and 4th place will take place before the battle for 1st.
The 8 winners of each seeding event will be invited to the final championship event (date TBD). There will be no qualifying for this event either. The order will be determined by the event won. For example, the winner of the first event will be seeded as Driver #1, the second event will be Driver #2, etc. These numbers will be used to fill the bracket as mentioned in the “Format” section above.
The final event will feature a new layout, drivers will be given a short amount of time to practice prior to the competition.
