The 2019 Sand Marble Rally is the fourth edition of the Sand Marble Rally. It was officially renamed to the Marble Rally 2019 as there were plans to have races on different terrains. It is set to be held in 2019. Like in the 2018 season, a B League will be held again too, featuring marbles who failed to qualify for the A League.

Changes in 2019Edit

Different TerrainEdit

The 2019 season was set to have races on different terrains other than sand like dirt. It ended up not featuring any races on different terrain.

General ChangesEdit

  • Some obstacles return, such as the drophole and the chevron sign.
  • The scoring system has been reverted to the one used in 2017. This means that marbles who finish 16th or lower do not gain points.
  • The ghost marble returns to his original role in 2017, where he comes out of the starting gate a few seconds after the competitors, and tries to push marbles who get stuck on track off his way.

QualificationEdit

The qualification format from 2018 was going to be replaced with an elimination race format,[1] but the planned format couldn't be implemented due to a lack of time.[2] The format was then changed to having 8 marbles compete one race. Top five marbles of each qualification race would qualify for the A-league. The last three would be relegated to the B-league. There were 2 qualification races, 1 practice race for the prequalified marbles and one "wildcard race".

Prequalified for the A-league:


All the other marbles participated in the qualification round.
