Best Appearing Race Car Competition
All cars are placed on a foam board made to look like a parking lot with spaces. All cars entered must be the ones a racer plans to race.
Next to each racer’s name on the race sign-in sheet is a numbered stick pin. Each racer takes a stick pin and sticks it next to the car on the parking lot as his/her vote. Each racer is allotted one vote and cannot vote for his/her car.
A count is made of the number of stick pins next to each car. The one with the most is the winner.
A small prize is awarded to the winner (or award bonus points). No system for tie breakers.
The best appearing race car competition is just to encourage racers to put a good looking car in the race. It is not really meant to be a modeler’s competition but, in at least a small way, to reward that part of the hobby.
