The riders' starting position draw will be balloted before each Final Meeting by the CCP.

Each Qualifying Round, Semi-Final, Long Track Challenge or Final Round must be organised in 15 heats with 6 riders in each heat (heats will consist of 4 laps). Heats 1 to 12 are called Qualifying Heats and must be conducted according to the following schedule of heats (like in a table)

After heat 12, there will be an intermediate classification from the 1st to the 20th place according to the total race points each rider has scored during the Qualifying heats. The 12 top-scoring riders from the Qualifying heats will qualify for the Semi-Finals:

  • Semi-final one (heat 13): 1st, 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th and 12th in the intermediate classification,
  • Semi-final two (heat 14): 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th, 10th and 11th in the intermediate classification.

Riders' gate positions for each Semi-Final (Heats 13 and 14) will be chosen by the riders, in the order determined by their position in the Classification after qualifying heats.

The 6 top-scoring riders from the second intermediate classification after the Qualifying Heats and Semi-finals will qualify for the Final (Heat 15). Riders' gate positions for the Final heat (Heat 15) will be chosen by the riders. The draw order shall be determined by the second intermediate classification (after the Qualifying and Semi-Final Heats).

If a rider cannot take part in a Semi-Final or Final heat for which he has already qualified, he will automatically be considered placed in the last position of the heat and will be not replaced by a following rider in the Intermediate Classification list.

ResultsEdit

The total points scored by each rider from the Qualifying heats, Semi-final and Final heats (Heats 1–15) in a Final Meeting will be credited as World Championship points in the overall championship and the Intermediate World Championship Classification will be according to these credited points.

The total race points scored by each rider during the whole event (Heats 1–15) will determine the final classification for the Final Meeting. Positions 1 to 6 in the Final Meeting Classification will be according to the result of the final heat (Heat 15) irrespective of the total race points scored.
