The cars have to accelerate over a specified distance on a specially made patch with other teams.
The Acceleration Event is designed to measure each vehicle’s ability to come up to speed quickly from a standing start. Acceleration is measured as the time to complete flat, straight course from a standing start. The course surface may vary from pavement to lose dirt. The choice of course length is at the organizer’s discretion.
The challenge is to complete the track in minimum time.
