Two teams meet in each heat. Heats will consist of 4 laps. The starting positions draw for each team will be balloted by the CCP.
Heats 1 to 15 are called Qualifying Heats and must be conducted according to the following schedule of heats (like in the table).
After heat 15 there will be an intermediate classification to decide the teams in the Final heats (C, B and A). The points scored in the first 15 heats do not count towards the final classification. There will be three Final heats:
- an A Final for the first and second placed points scoring teams,
- a B Final for the third and fourth placed points scoring teams and
- a C Final for the fifth and sixth placed teams in the intermediate classification.
Points scored in the Final heats by each single rider of a Team will be added to determine the first and second Team of that Final. Start positions for the teams will be balloted for the Finals with two possibilities for position:
- one, three, five or
- two, four, six.
