OSR,

Got it, and very cool.

Only thing, seems like the door to door racing is only at the finish line, and even then, are not all parties afraid of breaking out?

In the same vein, could you determine "classes" solely based on time, then start heads up and race crash and burn, also with a breakout override?

"[With bracket racing,] race nights are much more fun and social"--oldslotracer

And that is the bottom line objective, in my book.

Each driver does a few laps to set his breakout time every lane change, then he can adjust it after every race. I like to give myself a .2 second cushion just in case. A few times a night we'll get 3 guys with the same breakout time and have 5 laps of door to door racing, but the whole point of brackets is to get cars and drivers of different abilities to the finish line at the same time.

There's a one minute video of a bracket race on YouTube at
