 UMTC POINTS EVENT 5: Gaithersburg 2018

spacer.png

After taking a break from the Off-Road Challenge this week to give our drivers a chance to prep their trucks, we are heading straight to a more simple place in the beautiful U S of A at Gaithersburg 2018! A good spot to get some more traditional runs in, and a nice refreshing setting to cool down the fiery spirits of our competitors. We're getting over the hump, everybody, make it count!

RACING RULES: Two rules, very simple.

1. Don’t one tire or red light.

2. If you roll, and your opponent rolls, whoever got further along the flow of the map wins that race.

FREESTYLE RULES:

1. Freestyles do not need to be extremely realistic. All that I ask is that if you are going to pull off a trick that is unusual, you let me and the judges know ahead of time what it is going to be. If the trick begs for us to see what it is you have in mind, we will request that you arrange a visual example with THE JUDGES, not me. 

2. You will have 5 seconds to recover from any sort of roll, and your time to recover starts the moment the top of any part of your truck makes contact with the ground. It sounds complicated, but it’s quite simple in action. No hack saves, the best you can do is play with the throttle to start a sidewall. If you begin a sidewall from being on your lid, you must obey RII if you have not yet recovered. This means that if you are given an RII while you’re still side walling, get off the throttle or kill the engine and cross your fingers. Sidewalls that produce recoveries after an RII is given will be good enough for a re-fire.

3. No hard hits allowed. Hard landings on tailgates do not count as hard hits, but even if you end up on all four wheels, violent tumbles are going to be given an RII.

4. No wall hits. Brushing the wall is fine, and having almost stopped when you hit a wall is forgiven, but only once.

5. Follow the judges and officials’ directions at all times. There is always a reason why they are telling you to do something, don’t challenge it by stalling the flow of the events. Misunderstandings or mistakes can be addressed and corrected as long as you cooperate and behave yourself.

6. Less than realistic moves that don’t come off as naturally occurring will be ignored for scoring or given as much credit as a normal backflip if they were not presented to the judges or myself ahead of time. SO MAKE SURE YOU TELL US IF YOU HAVE A SPECIAL SIGNATURE MOVE!
