What is the FAST Duel? It is a unique tournament-style autocross event where two drivers compete on the same course at the same time with NO CLOCKS. Each driver starts on their own starting line with their opponent on the opposite side of the course. First one back to their own start/finish line wins!
The Duel is one of the most FUN ways to autocross! You look across the course at the starting line and SEE your opponent. No clocks, no looking at time sheets and numbers. Just look over there, and there he is looking back at you. When you reach the half-way point, you can look across the course again... and there he is! Is he ahead? Is he behind? It's often hard to tell. Did he hit some cones or go off course somewhere? You just don't know! Come around to the finish... there he is again... and you can see... you might just finish first! Or... maybe it's obvious that you won't? But, you still keep hammering away because you don't know if your opponent coned out or not! You can still win... even if you don't cross the line first. Happens all the time!
You can't just win by getting the fastest run out of 3 or 4 or 6 runs. You have to be faster than your opponent on THAT run! That is the Duel.
