HOW IT WORKS – RUULES:
To win the competition you need to nail the following: Biggest angle, most smoke, highest speed and closest to the 3 clipping points (apex-cones). The speed is measured by radar in the first corner. The track goes around the long curve at the end of the track before the straight. All cars drive alone, not twin as in drifting. 3 judges give 0 to 100 points. Touch of clipping points will give fewer points.
