The contract with SportExtra requires fast action. On Wednesday we will kick off the series with the first 2-hour race at Spa-Francorchamps. The first race of the season will have a 600 € cash prize for first place, as well as hardware prizes sponsored by RIOTORO and ZYLINC.
The remaining eleven (11) races will have a first-place prize payout of 100 € minimum.
This means the special event that was supposed to be run on Tuesday is replaces with the first race of the Assetto Corse Competizione Sprint Series. All the teams signed up for the race on Tuesday will have their signup transferred to the full Sprint Series Season instead. That means anybody signed up for the special event on Tuesday are now automatically upgraded to an entry in the entire season with no extra cost.
All races in the season are two (2) hours in length. Qualifying is 25 minutes. The season is for two-driver teams. There will be room for 30 cars in the season. Qualifying will start at 19.30 and races approximately at 20.00.
