Drivers have a three free patrice session of 30-minute and 1-hour. On Saturday drivers have a qualifying session. The qualifying session decides the grid order for first race.

On second race, the grid is decided by the first result with top 8 being reversed, so the driver who finished 8th on first race will start from pole position and the winner will start from 8th place.[2]
