How the competitions take place

Each appointment of the national championship includes two races , the first with a longer length than the second. The starting grid of Race 1 is established by the races of the eliminatory phase. In Race 2, on the other hand, the first eight positions correspond to the inverse of the arrival order of Race 1 (in essence, the first classified part eighth, and vice versa). The final score won by the driver is the sum of the points collected in each race . It should be noted, however, that the various appointments on the calendar do not all have the same weight. In fact, some circuits are assigned a coefficient of 1.5 (Pista Salentina and Pista Sette Laghi), which must be multiplied by the score obtained by the driver in that stage.
