Legends Racing Info
We don’t use qualifying times to determine grid position. Instead, we use a ballot draw – each driver pulls a ball from a bag – the number and colour of the ball determines where on the grid he/she starts in their first race. These are reversed for a drivers second race so if you draw the inside of row one for your first race you’ll be on the outside of the back row for your second race.
Each driver races three times during the course of the meeting, scoring points according to finishing positions in each race. The points are totalled at the end of the meeting to determine that meeting’s winners.
Each race is a short, sharp, generally frantic affair. Depending on the circuit length, the cars race for between 7 and 12 laps. Because of the unique grid system, the fast and not-so-fast are mixed together, producing some hectic action as the quick drivers try to battle to the front.
Grid positions for the Final are determined by the points scored in the heats. However, we like to do things differently, and the highest points scorers start from the BACK. The action is more frantic than normal as most of the fast drivers are at the back, all trying to fight to the front at the same time.
Cars score points in each race – the points from each race are added together to determine the winner of the meeting. All points count towards the Championship.
It is the CAR that scores the points, not the driver. This makes the series extra attractive to those on a tight budget – it is possible for two or more drivers to share a car for the season.
Each year’s new driver intake contest the Rookie Championship – a separate trophy within the main competition.
