Following details regarding the overseas qualifying at the WF
Furthermore while we are not running practise ahead of the meeting there is a planned practice session on the Wednesday from 4-9pm...
Overseas entries lap times
The first point of business at Another Wild Weekend will be the lap times for the overseas entries for the BriSCA F2 Stockcar World Final which will set the grid positions for the 11 expected overseas entries from mainland Europe, Ireland and the Isle of Mann on rows three, six, nine, 12, 15 and 19 of the grid.
This crucial stage of the weekend for our overseas contenders will be at 12noon. The reason for the early scheduling is so the lap times can be completed in good time for final preparations to be made ahead of the 5pm start time and fans who are present at the stadium at this time are welcome to watch this part of the event.
It has also been decided that the overseas qualifying will be held under slightly different and unique rules which we hope will offer a more enjoyable and exciting viewing experience as well as offering the overseas drivers an added opportunity to prepare for the World Final race.
The 11 drivers will draw at random to compete in group one or two and each group will then compete together for four meetings each with the fastest lap time set by each driver in the group in this time being their qualifying time.
The fastest five drivers from the initial round will then have the option to compete in a third four minute session and while their fastest lap time from their first session will be ‘banked’ the second round will be an opportunity to try and improve on their original fastest time in a shootout for the top five grid positions for the overseas entries.
