New for 2012 — F1 style qualifying!
This season we are introducing F1 style qualifying to the Man of Steel.
All drivers compete in Q1, a ten minute session. Driver’s finishing 25th to 38th will qualify in those grid slots. The remaining 24 drivers will move to Q2, an eight minute session. Those finishing Q2 in positions 13th to 24th will qualify in those grid slots. The remaining 12 will go through to Q3 (6 minutes) and will fill grid slots 1-12. For the purposes of qualifying, weight classes will be ignored though the fastest in each class will still earn one bonus point, regardless of actual grid position.
This 4* series uses RX390 karts on the full International Circuit
Separate weight classes for light & heavy drivers (85kg).
Trophies to both weight classes!
This series is designed for the experienced competitor who is looking for a greater challenge.
It is an ideal step up from our popular 3* Iron Man series.
