Declaring the Winner
The winner of each Battle is declared by the following:
– If gap between Lead car and Chase car is more than 1 car length, Lead car wins
– If gap between Lead car and Chase car is closer than 1 car length, Chase car wins
– The decision will be made by a panel of Judges of Fact. The Judges decisions are final
– Following the true concept of Touge, the gap of ‘1 car length’ is purely visual, and based on the professionalism of the Judges
– In the event of a Tie whereby Car A wins Run 1 and Car B wins Run 2, then there will be a Sudden Death Run
– Judges will announce their independent decisions of each Battle by holding up a scorecard. Majority winner out of 3 judges decisions will be declared the winner. This allows for transparency of all judging decisions
– Immediate loss:
+ going off the circuit: if 3 tyres or more are off the main circuit tarmac, the car is deemed immediate lose
+ ‘dirt drop’ of 2 outer tyres exiting a corner is allowed, as is ‘kerb hopping’ with 2 tyres over the inside
+ a spin is considered immediate lose
There will be one additional run to decide a winner. Positions of Chase car and Lead car will be reversed from last Battle. Based on a single run, the Winner will be decided.
A panel of 3 Judges supplemented by the event Marshals will oversee the Battles as they take place. The following actions are forbidden and will result in immediate disqualification and forfeit of the refundable Discipline deposit:
– premeditated bumping or knocking
– premeditated brake-testing or sudden slowing down by the Lead car with the intent to disrupt the Chase car
Each individual decision by each judge will be recorded and the final result of a Battle will be decided by the majority score of the Panel of Judges. The decision of the Judges is final. Any protest against a decision must be accompanied by a Protest Fee of RM 100.
Finish line judging will will be supported by a video camera to record the finish of battles. Should there be a protest by a competitor, the video evidence may be used for the Judges to check back on the decision.
