Rules

Standard SPARK Racing rules were used for design. Vehicles were spaced out around the arena and started at 0. First vehicle to 5 laps wins!

Report

Walkarounds: Mike had a sloped, streamlined electric luxury with smallbore R. (He was using the General Lee MM-size car we bought off of EBay, thus it's the "General Lux".) Brian had a sloped and streamlined electric lux with turreted smallbore. Jim had an electric Formula One with no weapons. Becky's Sprint included an electric engine and a laser F. Odie had an electric Sedan with turreted smallbore. Renee had an Indy car with a sponson turret L. Flip's design was confiscated by the track officials. Naturally everyone had spoiler and airdam.

As everyone got up to speed, Brian went to work on Mike's rear. Before Mike was able to finish his first lap, his driver was injured and had to surrender. On the other side, Becky and Renee were laying into Odie's vehicle.

Unfortunately, this is where your intrepid reporter wandered off and now I don't remember what happened well enough to write the play-by-play. As you can see from the scoring and pictures, Jim won. Renee was only a phase or three behind. Brian was third and Flip was still running. Becky and Odie were both destroyed and then rammed the wall and confettied. Mike surrendered before finishing a lap.

Congrats to Jim on winning this year's big race!
