Competition Rules

Zamboni race rules and regulations:

  • • Participants will post their estimated time of competition (this is defined as the time the auger is lowered to the ice to the time the rear wheels leave the ice surface)
  • .• Winning time will be closest to the actual time.
  • • NZRA officials will time the competition. The method of time shall be an iPhone.
  • • Once the official time is posted, NZRA officials will notify the winner of the event.
  • • In the rare event of a tie, the winner will be decided by coin toss
  • • If the Zamboni is ever not able to make it onto the ice surface for any reason, the participant with the lowest estimate wins that round
  • • If the Zamboni is unable to finish an event due to breakdown or any other unforeseen circumstance, the participant with the highest estimate will win that round
  • • A five (5) second penalty will be assessed for each missed patch of ice
  • • In the event two Zambonis are used to clean the ice, the official time will be tracked, but not included in the standings for the coveted ZB Cup.  Only single drivers times will qualify.

• A second additional $1 add-on bet may be made and a second time guess added in the event of a dual Zamboni race
