What is a Grand Prix?
A Grand Prix offers exciting racing for drivers that wish to compete as individuals and race for points in a series of qualifying heats. Points are awarded to each driver based on finishing position, with the winner receiving maximum points. After all drivers have completed their heats, there's a final race for all drivers, the grid position is based on the points earned. The event consists of:
- Warm-up lap
- 2 qualifying heats per driver
- Final race
Each driver races in the qualifying heats. The first driver to complete all the laps is the winner and is awarded maximum points, the next driver to cross the finish line is awarded the next highest points, and so on. The points for each qualifying session are added together determine the grid line up for the final.
After all drivers have completed qualifying it's time for the finals. Every driver races in a final. Points earned during qualifying determines which type of final (class) and grid position the driver will start in. For example, drivers with the highest number of points accumulated during qualifying will race together in the Class A final and pole position goes to the driver with the most points. The winner of the Grand Prix is determined by finishing position in the Class A final only. Medals are presented for first, second and third place.
