  3. Each entry with an invitation has fourteen (14) days from a set date to complete their registration. After this period the invitation will expire and will become available for a new team.

    • At least one (1) driver from last season remains.
    • The entry from prior season remains the same.
    • The entry must have the same team manager as previous season or one (1) driver from previous season must be the new team manager.
  5. A team that no longer qualifies under these new rules can apply for 'force majeure' to be judged by the organisation on a per-case basis.
  6. The organisation reserves the right to deny any entry for any reason.
  7. When registering, the invitation teams must make sure to comply with the rules. It is solely by the discretion of the organiseres to decide if the invitation is valid based on the regulations.

# 2.5 Registering a new entry

  1. Teams who do not have an invitation will have to participate in pre-qualifying.
  2. The goal of pre-qualifying is to make a selection for the remaining available spots on the grid.
  3. The number of available spots will be determined after teams with an invitation have registered.
  4. After the entries have been selected as a result of pre-qualifying, they will have to complete the registration (paying entry fee, filling out details etc.). If they don't complete the registration in 72 hours, the spot will go to the next entry in line.
  5. The organisation can, upon request, give more detailed reasoning to decisions from the pre-qualification session, either verbally or written. This should however, be regarded as a statement, and no further discussion will be entered into the decision.
