Practice

Each driver takes part in a practice session, the length of this is dependent on which Mini GP is booked for the Donnington GP its 5 mins, for the Brands Hatch GP its 10 mins and for the Silverstone GP its 10 mins.

Qualifying

Each driver then takes part in a practice session to decide on Pole Position for the race and grid order. The length of Qualifying depends on which Mini GP is booked, for the Donnington GP its 10 mins, for the Brands Hatch GP its 10 mins and for the Silverstone GP its 15 mins.

The Race

Your place in the finals is determined by how you qualified and you will be sent to the grid and start line and then compete in a final race for medals for the top 3 and bubbly for the winner. Final Race length depends on which Mini GP is booked, for the Donnington GP its 10 Laps, for the Brands Hatch GP its 15 Laps and for the Silverstone GP its 20 Laps.

Grand Prix for 16 Drivers +

The Heats

Each driver will take part in –

Indy GP      –   2 x 10 lap heats and place in one of the 10 Lap finals.
Monaco GP –  2 x 15 lap heats and a place in one of the 15 finals.

Each race in the heats is for points and the computer will try to give you a balanced position on the grid. For example, in the Indy, each driver takes part in 2 heats and the computer will randomly allocate you to grid positions and also try to mix up the groups taking part in each heat, but this is dependent on the number of people in the event and works better with more drivers.

At the end of the heats we will have a table of each driver’s accumulated points. If two or more finish with equal points, the computer will work out who had the fastest average lap times and move them to the top.

The finals

Your place in the finals is determined by how many points you accumulate in the heats and where you finish on the leader board. Everybody competes in a final with people who finished on a similar points total to their own. For example, in an event with 16 drivers this would result in two finals of 8 drivers, with a runners-up final and a winners final; an event with 31 drivers or more would result in three finals of 10/11 drivers. The finals are run so drivers with lowest points go first, and the Grand Final race is run as the last event.

The Grand Final is for the group of drivers who accumulated the most points and are racing for the trophies and bubbly.
