CARWARS AutoDuelists ~ Tuesday Night Sprints

Every Tuesday evening at 7:00pm eastern standard time, the CARWARS AutoDuelists club hosts a multirace championship utilizing a round robin style tournament where each week one driver picks the car and another driver picks the tracks. This way each competitor gets to make some decision into what were doing. Its is ran by myself, club leader RandyTessier, using an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of all league decisions and championship points using the standard CARWARS 10 point system; 1st +10 points, 2nd +9, 3rd +8, 4&5 +7, 6&7 +6, 8&9&10 +5… etc As each week passes the previous weeks car is still available in its own bucket in case a driver does not like the new car. In most cases drivers are free to choose which bucket they will compete in, however the person who chose the car for the current week may offer bonus points for completing a time-trial/qualifier in their particular car, or even for using that car that night. The person choosing that weeks tracks gets to decide not only the tracks for the evening, but how long is spend on each track and the penalties assigned for that night. Sound like fun? The current 2022 Tuesday Night sprints is still in its first few months, send RandyTessier, Nooma341 or rerebuilder a message to join our club and events. (We also run a Sunday night championship called the Carrol Shelby Celebration, when we host a role-playing style racing championship based on the racing history of Shelby American.)
