King of the Hill Grudge racing is back at Calder Park DragRacing Sat, 7th Dec 2019 .

As our last KOTH event didnt have an outcome - this is a Double Bonus payout, ie, double payout for every class (must have a full field). Koth is all about a winner take all, Big dollar prize payout and its pretty much “run what you brung and make sure its enough”.

It’s a buy-in for each competitor (in the form of an entry fee) for each class, race each other over the 1/8th (DYO & Street Outlaw over the ¼), Pro Tree, Heads Up (DYO full tree handicap), Three Round Format, winner takes all - $10,000 ca$h paid PER CLASS on the night, on the start line (based on a full field of 32 entrants for each class, or $5000 for field of 16). Entries close Fri 29th Nov 2019. No late entries – no exceptions – DO NOT CALL WITH EXCUSES!

All competitors may make one test hit between 3pm and 4:30pm, and run each elimination round at the times scheduled with the Final to be run at 9:00pm SHARP). We will not be waiting for anyone, and if you are not in the lanes to run your round you will record a DNF/Loss for that round. The two competitors with the most wins will race the final round. If there are more than two competitors with equal wins (ie three or four), then the competitor/s with the fastest ET from the previous round shall go to the final, or closest dial in for DYO.

Plus Grudge Style VIP Start line experience (limited to the 100 spectators only), VIP tickets may be purchased (online) for $50 and signing an indemnity form at Credentials. This will entitle you to exclusive start line viewing for this event and you are expected to follow the usual start line protocol.
Plus, heaps of crowd giveaways throughout the event – listen to the PA for calls…
