The World Records for dBDRA competition are reset each season.
The dBDRA currently recognizes World Records in the dB Drag Racing and Psychlone competition formats.
The initial World Records for each class will be established from the results of the first five 3X events to take place after publication of the finalized rules.
After the five first 3X events have taken place, the dBDRA will award the initial WR in each class to the highest score in each class based on the results from these five shows.
World Records may only be set at Triple Point events and the dBDRA Championship.
Only current dB Drag Racing members may set World Records.
104-4 only applies to the dB Drag Racing format.
To establish a new dB Drag Racing World Record, the competitor must beat the old record twice at the same event. The lower of the competitor's two record-breaking scores will be used as the new record.
Any time a competitor posts a score that could potentially result in a new World Record, the following procedures shall be undertaken to insure the validity of the score...
The competitor's vehicle (and podium) shall be immediately impounded by the dB Drag Racing officiating staff.
The officiating staff will then perform a mandatory Vehicle Audit.
The SPL measurement equipment shall be inspected and tested for proper operation. If it is determined that an equipment malfunction has occurred, the competitor's score shall be nullified. Once the problem with the equipment has been rectified, the competitor's vehicle will be re-judged.
The officiating staff must unanimously agree that the competitor's score is a valid score. If the officiating staff cannot reach a consensus on the validity of the score, the competitor's score shall be nullified. Depending upon the nature of the dissent, the competitor may be re-judged or disqualified as circumstances dictate.
