SNZ Approved Format Qualifying Rule M4 25

All competitors will be split into 6 groups (there may less groups dependent on numbers) which will be
seeded, and all grids done for all competitors. This is determined by Ruapuna Speedway. This
information will be provided to entrants as soon as practical following the entry closing date. It will also

be posted on our website.

Each group will race each other once over two nights – three event heats on
night one and two event heats on night two. The top 16 points scorers after all 5 event heats have been
completed will qualify directly to a winner takes all final race. The driver highest on points will have the
choice of grid 1 or 2 for the final with the second highest points scorer starting from the leftover grid.
Drivers positioned 3rd – 16th on points will fill grids 3 – 16 for the final.

All the above event heats races will be 10 laps. In case of a tie-on points for the top qualifiers in each group the following system will be used to resolve the matter. Whoever has the higher finishing position in any of the five heats of the two persons tied on points, they will be given the higher ranking than the other person. If this cannot separate them, then it will go on who has the fastest lap time over the 5 heats.

All remaining drivers will race in a last chance ‘B Main’ event races. There will be two B Mains events
(depending on numbers). This will be for all remaining cars. The first B Main event will be made up from
the odd numbers from the grid positions and the second B Main event will be made up with the even
numbers from the grid positions. The first 2 drivers to cross the finish line after a set number of laps
(determined by the host track) in each B Main event will transfer to the winner takes all final race. First
B Main drivers will fill grids 17 and 19 and the second B Main drivers will fill grids 18 and 20. The B mains will be 10 laps.

Final: Will see the highest points scorer selecting grid 1 or 2 for the 30-lap final. Final race to consist of
20 cars.

The winner of the 30 lap final will be crowned the New Zealand Sprintcar Champion for 2022/2023
season. Ruapuna Speedway reserves the right to modify or change the SNZ Approved Format if weather
conditions are not favourable, in conjunction with SNZ, to ensure the event is held.
