  • Race two was always a 15 minute Sprint Race, with a grid reversed from the results of race one.
  • Race three was always a 10 minute Super-Sprint Race, with a grid reversed from the results of race two.

Entry List

Teams could have a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 2 drivers. Both cars were not required to be painted in the same colour although it was preferred.

Drivers could change their team choice at any point up until they competed in an official session, at which point they were "locked in" to compete for that team for the rest of the season.

Drivers competing in their first season of Really Rubbish Racing competition could choose to drive for the Really Rubbish Racing New Driver Programme team if they wished to do so instead of creating their own team or joining an existing one.
