Changes

General changes

  • The season length was shortened from covering a full calendar year to only half of a year.

Sporting regulations

  • The race length was changed from ~230km in distance to 15 minutes in time.
  • The formation lap was removed from the starting procedure. The races will now start directly after the time for driving into the grid expired.
  • After some curious situations during the qualifying procedure, the qualifying format was changed to one session, 10 minutes in length, where every driver can do as many laps as he wants.
  • There will be 30 races at all, 3 on 10 circuits, this season. The qualifying will form the starting grid for the first race. The second race will be started as a reverse grid refering to the race result of race 1. The third race will be started as a reverse grid refering to the drivers' championship standings after the second race of the same race weekend.
  • The Warm-Up-Session is shortened to 5 minutes in length.
