Hallo
05.04.2012 [14:14]
TO ALL CONTESTANTS

Today we have launched http://www.race2theworlds.com, the promotional website for this contest. This website is specially aimed at gamers whoi we try to interest for r/c racing through this virtual competition: GAMER vs RACER

We have modified the R2tW Competition and Participation rules. Much to our regret we have reduced the number of racers who can qualify for the Worlds from 3 to 1. We were counting on support from the industry and this has not materialized. From a cost and support perspective we had no other choice than to take this step. We count on your understanding.

We have also changed the Semi final from 2 semi's with 10 racers to 3 semi's with 6 racers each to avoid possible bandwidth and latency issues. We have also reduced the number of racers in the Main Final to 6 for the same reason.

Points first.. Then if there is tie in points, laps and runtime is used as tie breaker

Yes, the winner can use his own radio

Curious - would the winners have to use the provided equipment? Are they provided by sponsors? I ask because I am very comfortable with my radio, and I use my radio with VRC....if I was required to use a different radio for the real-world event, it would take a while to get used to the equipment.

Semi-finals, point25 "3 races of 5 minutes of which the best individual result count for the overall semi final ranking" - this means that the fastest runtime counts or point ranking? E.g.: 1st final: Driver A wins 22 in 5.01, Driver B 2nd 22 in 5.03, Driver C 3rd 22 in 5.04; 2nd final: A in 3rd place with 22 in 5.07, B wins with 22 in 5.02 and C gets 2nd with 22 in 5.04 again; 3rd final: A wins with 23 in 5.11, B gets 3rd with 22 in 5.00 and C gets 2nd with 23 in 5.12, now difference:
point ranking: A has won 2 finals and his last final was fastest of all, he´s obviously the winner. B has won 2nd final, with point ranking he would be in front of C. Because B won a final, C got only 2 2nd places.
Time ranking: A in front of C, B is last of this 3 drivers. Because the last run of C (23 laps 5.12, 2nd place) was faster than the run B won (22 5.00, 1st place).

In my opinion it´s not clear, if it will be point or time ranking. What´s the "best" run? The fastest time or the run someone won?

EDIT: For main final it´s the same... a Driver X can win the first 2 finals, but with these two results in laps and runtime added, his time can still be slower than time of a driver Y, who got 2 2nd places, one time 0.1 sec behind X in 1st final and then in last final behind Driver Z, but with better runtime than X in the 2nd final he won.
Clearify, if point ranking or laps and runtime ranking.
