A race weekend features one 45-minute practice session on Friday, and one 30-minute qualifying session on the same day, followed by three races. The qualifying session is a straight fight for the fastest laptime, and determines the order of the grids for Races 1 & 2.
Race 3 is on Sunday. The grid is decided by the Race 2 result with top 8 being reversed, so the driver who finished 8th on Saturday will start from pole position and the winner will start from 8th place.
With this points system, the most number of points anyone can score in one round is 65 by winning each race. In Hockenheim round of 2012, Marvin Kirchhöfer became first driver to score all points of the weekend with this point system.
