QUALIFYING

In each round, drivers will score points based on the distance and time achieved in relation to all other drivers. Points will be distributed so the fastest driver will accumulate maximum points for the round, with the points decreasing on 1-point increments for the preceding drivers. DNS and DQ drivers will receive zero (0) points for that particular round.
