Not real hard to understand and the track will guide you through the process.
Go out and have some fun !!!
In Australia, perhaps similar to IFMAR onroad Nitro
Drivers are seeded into heats, where we race the clock and not each other and rotate start positions from pit lane, then after the 6 rounds, the top 4 qualifiers are seeded into the A-Main. From there it's a bump up system of grid starts based on qualifying position for 1/16th 1/8th 1/4 and semis with top 4 progressing up wards and in semi's top three finally filling the remaining 6 positions in the A-Main final. Might have it a bit wrong in bump numbers, but a great system in my opinion. Everyone has a chance to make good if they had a hard time in their heats of quals
Electric EP use different systems.
