We open the track for a 15 min. qualifing session. That establishes your starting grid position for the first 30 min. race.

We take a break for about 15-20 minutes and have a 2nd 30 minute race. The grid for the 2nd race is inverted.

Both races count for points, which we tally at the end of the season and crown a champion.

The racers seem to really enjoy the additional race time.
And I still only use half of my battery

the 13.5 class needs to go a full 10 min... at least at the club level.

National events should stay at 5 min ...
