AXIALFEST2018 – Rock Racing Rules

AXIALFEST2018 - Rock Racing Rules

ROCK RACING RULES • AXIALFEST2018

As traditional R/C offroad race tracks have become super-groomed sugar-coated brown tarmac, Axial is once again putting the rough, the rocks and real dirt back into off-road racing!

At AXIALFEST, there’s no need for a driver’s stand! You are your own “helicopter-spotter” and “chase-truck” as you are physically moving around a designated course while driving your rock racer!

Rock Racing is fast and ferocious, and it tests the limits of the machine as well as the driver manning the machine! No computer timing systems; just line ‘em up and let ’em rip!
2-Lap qualifiers. Next group on deck! 5-Lap mains!
