compiled by Rick Black, MAFCA Webmaster
The following "rules" have been compiled from various local and regional MAFCA events. They are not official rules from MAFCA. They are presented here to give organizers of Hubley racing some guidelines for their events. Most organizations send out the rules to entrants along with registration forms, thus making the local rules known to participants in advance of the event.
- Two or Three lanes wide
- Forty feet long.
- Manual or automatic car "launching"
- Timing lights optional
- Pillow or soft object at end of the track
- The cars must be metal 1:20 scale models made by Hubley, Gabriel, and Scale Model.
Any of the seven Model "A" body styles may be used: Sedan, Station Wagon, Coupe, Roadster, Roadster Pickup, Victoria, and Phaeton.
- Cars must be stock including the original tires, wheels, and axle screws. No modifications allowed.
Steering may be secured or loose at makers choice.
- Weight of each car can be no more than 1 pound, 5 ounces (station wagon weight). A small amount of leeway will be allowed due to the differences of scales. Weights added to lighter cars must be secured, not loose in car.
- A dry lubricant (graphite for example) is allowed at owners choice.
Class 1: 3-9 year olds
Class 2:10-13 year olds
Class 3:14-17 year olds
Class 4:18 and over.
After the cars are checked in, all handling and racing of the cars is done by race personnel. At the time their cars are being raced, the competitors may be called up to the track.
Cars from each class will be pitted against each other in random order to determine Champion, 2nd, and 3rd place. In the final event, the four class Champions race to determine the overall winner. Prizes are awarded for the first three places in each age group and for the overall champion.
