Qualification runs will decide the ranking for the eliminations. If for any extraordinary reason, like weather interference, the organizer is forced to limit the number of drivers before the eliminations it will be based on qualification rankings. If for any reason no qualification runs can be made, elimination rankings can be decided by a draw performed by a Summit Racing/Speedgroup assigned person and with all drivers and a representative from the race directory present.
The race schedule is decided by the event organiser and normally published provisionally before the event begins. The schedule may be changed by the race director without notice, both in regards to time and number of scheduled runs. The drivers will be informed of any changes continuously during the event, normally by the class host.

Please note, no points will be awarded from the finals event towards the Summit Racing EDRS Series, since it is only open for pre-qualified drivers.
