Current arcade game champion: Matthew

Rules

Players are drawn randomly into four quarter finals, and race each other in Sega Rally or an equivalent arcade racing game. The races are played in a 'knockout' format, with each player racing three times; the third race for each player determines their overall position, depending on how many races they win.

After the first three races, the winners move into the top-half of the draw, whilst the losers are split into the bottom-half.

After two more races in each half, the winners of the semi-finals in the top-half race each other for first and second place, while the top-half losers race for third and fifth place. In the bottom-half, the semi-finals winners compete for fourth and sixth place, whilst the competitors that have lost both games so far race each other for seventh and eighth place.

Tiebreak rules

Races cannot be tied.
