IET FORMULA GOBLIN

IET Formula Goblin events are run on a points-based system. The team with the least points at the end of the day are declared the overall winner. There will be a minimum of 13 driver opportunities for each car at an event. These driver opportunities will be made up of the following event activities. Please check the pre-race information to understand exactly what activities will be taking place on the day of your event.

 

Timed Awards
Drag – 1st, 2nd, 3rd

Drivers must drive in a straight line from start to finish. Cars must brake as soon as they cross the finish line. If they hit the row of cones at the end of the drag a 2 second penalty will be given. The time runs from the drop of the flag until the front wheels cross the finish line. Quickest time is the winner.

 

Slalom – 1st, 2nd, 3rd

Drivers must drive between each of the gates (made with cones) and finish in the coned box. If a cone is hit a 2 second penalty is given, if a gate is missed a 4 second penalty is given. If a car drives through the centre of the course, missing multiple gates, a 1-minute penalty is given. The time runs from the drop of the flag to stopping in the box. Quickest time is the winner.

 

Sprint – 1st, 2nd, 3rd

Drivers must complete the defined course in as quick a time as possible. The time runs from the drop of the flag until the front wheels cross the finish line. Quickest time is the winner.

Lap of Champs – 1st, 2nd, 3rd

Drivers must complete the full lap in as quick a time as possible. The time runs from when the car first crosses the line until the front wheels cross the finish line. Quickest time is the winner.

Pitstop Challenge – 1st, 2nd, 3rd

Teams must remove all 4 wheels off the Goblin Kit Car, place them on the ground, and fit them on the car again as quick as possible. The time runs from the word go and stops once all wheels are secured back on the car. Quickest time is the winner.
