The GPL is a Championship series

The Grand Prix League is a Championship series comprising of eight rounds of which the driver's best six scores will count towards the championship.

It is run in two weight categories, lightweights being drivers under 85kg in full race kit, and heavies who are drivers who exceed 85kg.

It is not necessary to compete the full series as all rounds are open to 'one off' entries.
