The Racewall, Cowdenbeath
Saturday 1 September
Thirty pre-qualified drivers will be nominated in seeded order, for the World Championship.
- 6 Autospeed
- 4 Barford
- 6 Scotland
- 6 Northern Ireland
- 4 PRI
- 4 Ringwood
It will be entirely each promotion/region’s choice, as to the process they use to select their seeds, but they will need to be in a pre-determined order.
The 30 seeded drivers will then undergo a time trials session during the afternoon of Saturday 1 September.
However, the times of the corresponding groups of seeds will be compared.
Hence, the times of the nine seeds in Block 1 will be compared, to determine grid positions 1 to 9; the times of the nine seeds in Block 2 will be compared, to determine grid positions 10 to 18; and so on.
There will be a Last Chance qualifier on Saturday 1 September, to determine the final two places on the grid.
If the reigning World Champion fails to qualify through his promotion/region, and through the Last Chance qualifier, he will be afforded a position at the very rear of the grid.
