Default full contact racing

Thought I might share what we're doing in New Zealand, racing RC Stockcars around an oval track with full contact!!!

Normal race rules apply except foryou can take anyone out at anytime... in fact this is encouraged, points are awarded for rollovers

check out www.rcredneckracing.co.nz for more pics & info

I would be interested to think what you guys think about this alternitive in RC racing

our necks get red from the harsh sun
this form of racing looks to be a lot of fun and with the cage arangement the cars are well protected too so it minimises brakages

Default Why?

I'm absolutely stumped - no offense.

Why would an organization promote this type of driving?
Any body can bully their way around a track, the skill
is in non-contact and moving through the field avoiding
contact, not initiating it?

These things are expensive enough without having someone
intentionally take you out for points

I don't get it?

There's also skill in avoiding been hit while trying to keep you racing lines...adds another dimension..... remember theres life outside of the USA

NZ Stockcars are an actual racing form were contact is also incouraged

www.pnspeedway.co.nz

Teams racing is the best were you'll have a couple of runners while the rest try to block the opposition runners from winning... very entertaining & destructive

Still doesn't prevent breakages, we're breaking stuff which you wouldn't normally break due to the impact... part of the fun
