- Summit Online head-to-head racing format will follow Virtual Circuit head-to-head qualification race rules, with participants submitting models to navigate the track while avoiding a specified number of moving bot cars. The winners of the race will be determined by the fastest continuous time submitted to the leaderboard at the close of the race. There is no elimination bracket or Head-to-Head tournament at the end of the month for Summit Online races.
