So how does that work then with only 2 rounds of qualifying (there was gonna be 4 originally right?) ...were the qual points gonna be based on best 2? So now they will all just be tomorrow's 2 or will it be based on best 1 run?

Originally it is scheduled for 6 rounds of qualifying.

If one round is cancelled, then 5 more are left.

You can read the official rules at the below link:
http://www.ifmar.org/pdf/ifmar_wc_electric_track.pdf

Read carefully segments:

2.5
2.5.4

Below is a quote from the rules.


2.5 HEATS
2.5.1 There will be fifteen heats of ten drivers each. They may be divided into two groups:
Group A - Heats 1 to 7, Group B - Heats 8 to 15.
2.5.2 There will be six (6) rounds of qualifying heats unless weather or unforeseen
circumstances dictate otherwise. Any reduction in the number of rounds will be
decided by the International Jury.
2.5.3 Starting positions; during the first round of qualifying, heat starting positions will be
determined by the times achieved overall during the controlled practice rounds.
During further qualifying rounds, heat starting positions will be by the overall
fastest time of drivers in their heat.
2.5.4 If the race is held on carpet, each driverís best 2 (out of 6) numbers of laps, plus
finishing time, will determine their qualification position. On other surfaces a
driverís point score will place the driver in a final according to the following system.
In each round, drivers will score points based on the laps and times achieved in
relation to all other drivers.
Fastest driver in each round will score: 155 points
2nd fastest will score: 153 points
3rd fastest will score: 152 points
4th fastest will score: 151 points
and so on, scoring one point less for each driver down to last qualifying position.
If a driver does not start a heat, he receives no points. No change to the scoring
method will be made if less than 150 drivers enter the World Championship. In each
round, in case of a tie, the points will be equally awarded to each driver with the
same lap and time score. The first driver not in the tie will score points according to
their position in the qualifying list. For example:
Fastest driver 8 laps 5:10.00 will score 155 points
2nd fastest driver 8 laps 5:12.00 will score 153 points
3rd fastest driver 8 laps 5:14.00 will score l52 points
4th fastest driver 8 laps 5:15.00 will score 151 points
5th fastest driver 7 laps 5:01.00 will score 150 points - TIED
6th driver 7 laps 5:01.00 will score 150 points - TIED
7th driver 7 laps 5:01.00 will score 150 points - TIED
8th fastest driver 7 laps 5:04.00 will score 147 points
A driver will discard his worst scores based on the qualifying rounds completed to
the following rules:
Out of six (6) completed rounds, the best three (3) scores will be added to decide the
driverís qualifying position. Out of five (5) completed rounds, the best three (3)
scores will be added to decide the driverís qualifying position.
Out of four (4) completed rounds, the best two (2) scores will be added to decide a
driverís qualifying position. Out of three (3) completed rounds, the best two (2)
scores will be added to decide a driverís qualifying position.
Out of two (2) completed rounds, the best one (1) score will decide a driverís
qualifying position. If only one (1) round is completed, that round counts. In the case
of a tie in the final qualifying positions when the driverís best scores are added
together, only the scores (and the laps and times used to determine those scores)
will be used to break the tie.
The discarded scores, laps and times will not be used to separate a tie. The driver
with the highest single points score from the scores added will be awarded the tied
position. In the case of a continuing tie, the next best scores will be considered. All
best scores will be considered until the tie is broken. If a comparison of points fails to
break the tie, the laps and times from the highest points will be compared.
The driver with the fastest time from their highest score will be awarded the tied
position.
Example: -
Driver Points Score Total Fastest Lap Time
A l50,146,130,148 574 8 laps 5:10.00
B 148, 147,136,143 574 8 laps 5:14.00
C 149,145,131,147 572 8 laps 5:12.00
D 145,131,147,149 572 8 laps 5:16.00
Note: Driver A qualifies ahead of Driver B due to a higher single point score Driver C
qualifies ahead of Driver D due to a better fastest lap time.

That's a bummer Hupo. It just had to happen the week of the worlds. Hope you're feeling better.

Sorry to hear about you having to leave the race early!

I'm glad to hear you are feeling better now!

At least it was something that could be fixed... not like a broken castor block or something
