Tournament Format

Formula Motor Racing (FMR) is another of the great Reiner Knizia card games by GMT.

Claim the prestigious Constructor's Championship in this fast-playing Reiner Knizia card game of open-wheel auto racing. This is a 'B' tournament with multiple qualifying heats. Heats will be 90 minutes long as listed above. With sign in, admin, and play, everyone should be done in two hours. Note the time for the Teaching Session. Although the game is simple, it will not
be taught during play.

Tables of six players (or as close as we can come) will be assigned randomly. You will play the entire heat of six races with the same opponents, with the goal of getting the highest score after all six races are played. Players must stay for all six races. In Formula Motor Racing, you can finish out of the points during one or two hands but still wind up winning your table - or take a comfortable lead into the last race and have both your cars crash! Just as in real racing series, consistency over the long haul is more important, and it's not over till the last results are in.

Table winners will usually be able to advance to the playoffs, with runners-up included to make complete tables of six as necessary. Runners-Up should check the Alternate list on the kiosk in Corridor B to determine their chances of advancing to the next round. We will have 2 or 3 semifinal tables to be determined by number of players who qualify to advance from initial heats. The top 6 will advance to the finals.

The cool play mat previously given out to finalists is now available for all off GMT's website at:

Medalists (plaque winners) will receive merchandise credits of $15for 1st, $10 for second, $5 for third courtesy of GMT.

Don't miss your chance to have all the fun and glory of being an F1 Team Principle without ponying up $60 million!

Rebecca Hebner will offer a Juniors version of Formula Motor Racing for those 12 and under at 5 PM Thursday in Heritage.
