– Brackets will be dependent upon entries and may not be run where insufficient entries are received.
– Please contact NDRC if you are unsure which bracket you should be entering.  As noted above, IHRA & NDRC rules apply which may differ to regular Springmount Championship Series rules.
– Racing will be run with 3 qualifying rounds and then eliminations, meaning that if you lose a round you are out.  If you win, you advance to the next round until the finals are reached.
– A test session will be held on Friday night for anyone who wishes to enter it. A Test & Tune / Race Ya Mate bracket will also be run on Saturday with all of the other racing brackets for those not wanting to compete in dial-your-own racing.  Note below that the price is the same to enter the Test & Tune / Race Ya Mate given that there are no eliminations so you are likely to get more runs in than those competing who have the chance of being eliminated.
– There is no option available to only race Friday night.  You must either race Friday and Saturday or Saturday only.
– Entries close midnight on Monday 14 August.  Late nominations after this date will incur a $50 late fee.
