A race weekend features one 45-minute practice session on Friday, and one 30-minute qualifying session on the same day, followed by three races. The qualifying session is a straight fight for the fastest laptime, and determines the order of the grids for Races 1 & 2.
Race 3 is on Sunday. The grid is decided by the Race 2 result with top 8 being reversed, so the driver who finished 8th on Saturday will start from pole position and the winner will start from 8th place.
Each races longs for 25 minutes.
