How to Roll Race
The concept is simple, you’re paired up with another vehicle in the staging lanes. You both start off on a rolling start, and when the flag drops, it’s a race to the finish line. There are a few rules involved so we will go through them here.The vehicle on the right side sets the pace, we suggest around 40kmph max as you’re rolling up to the start. If you’re on the left side, it’s your job to keep up but do not pass until the starter drops the flag.During practice sessions, everyone returns back around to race again, however during competition, only the winner will return until we crown the champion for each class.Roll Racing is all about having a well setup car that can get the power to the ground correctly. You don’t need the most HP or biggest tyres to win but that definitely helps!
Classes - there are two classes to compete in:
N/A (Naturally Aspirated)
Turbo (Any power add on)
