The class will be run as a bracket class, which means that you say what time you think your car will run and whoever gets closest to their predicted time wins. The start is also staggered so both cars should cross the line at the same time.
The Nissan Pulsar GTiR 'Dials in' at 12.8 - his opponent the Mazda MX5 dials in at 15.8.
The Mazda gets the green light 3 seconds before the Nissan, therefore the Nissan has to wait on the startline for 3 seconds whilst the Mazda makes its way down the track. Set off before the green light and the Mazda gets the automatic win. Once the Nissan gets the green light, it has to catch up and overtake the Mazda to win, this can usually happen in the last metre of the track.
The next thing to worry about is if the Nissan, as it overtook the Mazda, went faster than 12.8. If the Nissan ran 12.799 or quicker it's called a "Break Out" and the only thing the Nissan can do is hope that the Mazda broke out by a larger amount.
This is a type of racing that takes a lot of skill, you have to know your car and you have got to perfect your reaction time.
The beauty of a bracket class is that it doesn't matter if you have a 1.2 Micra or a 1000bhp Skyline, you've both got the same chance of winning!
