Race Grids

Race 1

The grid for race one is decided during Saturday’s qualifying session, with the exception of Snetterton.

Race 2

The grid for race two is based on the finishing order of race one.

Race 3

The grid for race three is based on the finishing order of race two, with the reversed order. Cars that finished the second race between 6th and 12th position are put in a bowl and one number is drawn. The corresponding car will start on pole, with the cars that finished ahead of it reversed. For example, if the drawn number is eight, car that finished 8th on race two will be on position ahead of car that has finished 7th. The rest of the grid follows as per the finishing order of race two.
