Race Schedule Team Racing Monday January 16th

Now that individual racing is done it’s time for an EPIC day of team racing! We have decided to change things up a TON with team racing and present to you again the WeBleed500 Team Racing Day! There will be eight(8) total teams for team racing with five(5) pilots to a team. Teams will be built by a snake style draft with 8 captains and the other 32 pilots in one big pool for draft picks! The 8 captains are determined based on placement from qualifying day 1 of Whooptopia (You must race in individual racing to also race in teams). 8th place qualifier will get first pick. During double loss elimination brackets each team will fly for thirty(30) minutes and get as many laps as they can in 30 minutes. Top two(2) teams advance and bottom two(2) teams take a strike. Two(2) strikes and you’re out! Once we have the final four(4) teams standing we will then go into the WeBleed500 where the last four(4) standing teams will race, the first team to 500 laps win!

Note: Individual Racing Track will be altered for a quicker lap time for team racing.
