The series currently consists of 13 two-day events driven on mixed-surface closed circuits. Each event consists of:[1]

  • 4 Heats. In each heat there are smaller races containing approx 3-5 cars, and the driver with the fastest overall race time after 4 laps is declared the heat winner. Drivers earn 'intermediate points' based on their positions. After the 4 heats, the points are added up and the 12 drivers with the most points move into the next round.
  • 2 Semi-Finals. Six cars race in each semi-final, which are 6 laps in length. The top 3 drivers in each semi-final move into the final round.
  • Final. Like the semi-finals, this race is contested by six cars over six laps. The winner of the final is deemed to be the event winner.

Points system

World Championship points are scored as follows:
