FORMAT

QUALIFYING

Drivers will be randomly drawn into heat groups. These heat groups will also be used as qualifying groups. The qualifying groups will then participate in a combined Hot lap/Time trial session. There will be a maximum of 4 cars on track at a time. The sessions will be 4 laps. The sub-groups will run consecutively with the order determined by a random draw which will be used across all qualifying groups. Example: 8 car heat. Qualifying group split into two sub-groups; a and b determined by seeding the drivers. A random draw will be conducted to determine which sub-group (a or b) qualifies first, which will be applied across all Qualifying groups.

HEAT RACES

A one heat format will be in use – 8 car heats; an invert of four (4) will be used – 10 or more cars; an invert of six (6) cars will be used

NOTE: Should entries be lower than thirty six (36) cars, each venue reserves the right to return to a two-heat format. In the instance of a two (2) heat format the first round of heats will have the fastest qualifier starting pole position, second fastest qualifier starting second in each group etc..

The second round of heats will be inverted applying the same inverts as per the One Heat format.

Points accumulated from Time Trials and Heat races determine the starting positions for the B & A-Main(s).

There will be six (6) cars to transfer from the B-Main(s) to the rear of the A-Main. The A-main will consist of 20 cars.

All heat races will be contested over 10 racing laps, The B-Mains will be contested over fifteen (15) Laps. If only one B-Mainis conducted the laps may be increased to twenty (20) laps dependent upon the number of cars. The A-Main will be 30 Laps. There will be no reserves for the B or A Main.

All formats are subject to potential change at the discretion of the management/promotors of each venue.
