ORCi Stock Rod World Championship Qualifying Process
12th February 2018
As previously announced, the Racewall is proud to host this years Stock Rod World Championship sponsored by Gilmore Engineering and promoted by Autospeed, leading promoters in the South West of England.
Autospeed have released information about the number of seeded entries from each promotion and how the World Final Grid will be formed. Full information can be viewed here.
GMP Scotland have been allocated 6 seeded entries. There will also be a Last Chance qualifier on Saturday 1 September, to determine the final two places on the grid for drivers who are not an automatic seed.
Our entries will be formed by the top 3 drivers in the National Points Chart, and the top 3 drivers in the Racewall Track Championship, upto and including the 11th August.
Where a driver features in both the top 3 of the Track and National Points, they will take the qualifying spot from the points chart they are highest in. The qualifying space in the other points chart will go to the next highest driver. e.g. a driver is 1st in the Racewall Track Championship and 2nd in the National points Chart. The driver will qualify via the Track Championship chart and the 4th placed driver in the National Points Chart will gain a seeded entry.
Where a driver holds the same position in both points charts, then the driver will qualify via the National points chart and the seeded entry in the Track Championship chart will be released to the next available driver in track championship standings.
A draw will take place between the third placed seeded entries from each chart to determine who will contest the timed lap trials in block 3 or block 4.
